Justin Bieber brings out his best duck face as new member of Zoolander 2 cast

Canadian pop singer Justin Bieber has been confirmed as the newest cast member for the upcoming comedy sequel Zoolander 2, with a planned cameo in the flick.

Bieber originally teased the casting on his Facebook page, leaving a post that read “Working on something big right now in Europe. To learn more, follow me on Fahlo … He is so hot right now.” Those who saw the original Zoolander flick might recall Bieber’s reference to a line from the first movie. But then this morning, Bieber posted a Tweet (seen below) that officially let the cat out of the bag.

Starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Billy Zane, Will Ferrell, and Penelope Cruz, the storyline follows two superficial, clueless male models, played by Stiller and Wilson, as they navigate the modeling world. The original film was released back in 2001 and, while it wasn’t exactly box office gold, the comedy still managed to make its mark.

To announce the sequel, Stiller and Wilson surprised with a hilarious runway walk at the Valentino show during Paris Fashion Week in March. The script will be written by Stiller and Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder) and Stiller will serve as director.

But what role will “The Biebs” play? That’s still unknown. Might he be a young Stiller in a flashback sequence, just coming up in the modeling world? Perhaps the hot, new, younger model that’s out to snag all of the best gigs from an aging Derek Zoolander and his BFF Hansel McDonald? Or Or perhaps a bratty pop star that throws tantrums and hangs with the wrong crowd? Perhaps that last one is a little too close to reality — but Bieber could wind up playing himself.

Whatever it is, chances are the role will make fun of Bieber’s reputation in some way, whether by mocking it openly, or alluding to it in some fashion. It’s a great move to further help repair the singer’s image. In March, Bieber smartly took part in a Comedy Central Roast, where celebrities from Snoop Dogg to Martha Stewart poked fun at the pop star.

Zoolander 2 hits theatres in February.
