Country legend Willie Nelson will make an appearance in the upcoming sequel to the 2001 hit movie. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Willie, 82, said Owen Wilson (who plays Derek Zoolander’s catwalk-nemesis-turned-friend Hansel in the films) invited him to Italy to shoot a part for the movie.
“Well, Owen and I are good buddies and we stay pretty close in touch,” Willie – who just released a new book, “It’s a Long Story: My Life” – told Access, when asked how his foray into the Ben Stiller-led comedy came about. “Woody [Harrelson] and all these folks – we hang out a lot in Maui.
“Owen is the one who asked me if I wanted to do it. I said, ‘Let’s do it,'” he said.
