Looks like the apple does sometimes fall far from the tree!
Filming has begun in Rome for Zoolander 2, and Ben Stiller hasn’t been shy on promoting the highly anticipated comedy!
The While We’re Young actor posted a picture on his Instagram of him in character of model Derek Zoolander making his signature “blue steel” pose. But the picture also revealed another character from the movie — Derek’s son! The actor captioned the photo:
“Meet @cyrusarnold. Son of Derek. #Zoolander2”
The 49-year-old actor was filming with his on-screen son Cyrus Arnold. He will be playing the rebellious teen Derek Jr., who was just a baby at the end of the 2001 original film.
But by the looks of these photos, Derek Jr. is growing up to be anything but a model (idiot) like his father!
This is getting us so excited to see other cast members returning to the long-awaited sequel! What about Derek’s love interest Matilda? Or Will Ferrell‘s hilarious Mugatu? We want more!
Ch-ch-check out the rest of the photos from the shoot (above) and go see Zoolander 2 in theaters February 12, 2016!
