Apparently Lady Gaga has been offered $4.8 million to appear in an upcoming Zoolander sequel. Gaga would play the love interest of both Ben Stiller’s Derek Zoolander and his equally dim arch-rival Hansel MacDonald (Owen Wilson). Via The Telegraph:
Actor Ben Stiller – who not only played Derek Zoolander in the first film but co-wrote and directed it too – will reprise his role and apparently thinks Gaga “has the talent and attitude” needed to play his leading lady.
If Gaga turns the role down, Stiller is also reported to be looking at casting Kate Moss, Kate Upton, Heidi Klum and Adriana Lima. It goes with out saying that all the women being considered are really, really ridiculously good looking.
That said, we’re kind of pulling for Gaga, if for no other reason than she’s played this sort of role before.
