Ben Stiller Brings Derek Zoolander To ‘SNL’

While we all await the executives at Universal to decide whether they want to make a sequel to Ben Stiller’s 2001 comedy Zoolander, the comic actor brought the character to Saturday Night Live this weekend as part of his hosting duties.

The comic actor revived his clueless male-model character for a bit during the show’s “Weekend Update” segment next to New York Chamber of Commerce rep Stefon (Bill Hader) to promote a Halloween charity event which will take place in New York hottest neighborhood, SoHoNoHoebo (south of West Houston, below lower Hoboken) and to unveil a new look – Cold Coffee. Although Stiller’s primary reason for hosting the show was to promote his upcoming comedy Tower Heist, I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Stiller decided to do the bit as a way to show the Universal brass that there is an audience for a second Zoolander film. Here’s hoping they were paying attention.
