A sequel to Ben Stiller’s ‘Zoolander’ has been a long time coming. The original movie, which followed the hilariously dumb misadventures of a male model named Derek Zoolander (Stiller), opened in the fall of 2001. 13 years later, work is finally starting to ramp up on the follow-up. Actor and writer Justin Theroux will direct ‘Zoolander 2’ (which should be called ‘2lander,’ for obvious reasons), and Stiller will reprise his role as Zoolander, along with Owen Wilson as his model buddy Hansel and Will Ferrell as the world’s most evil fashion designer Mugatu. Deadline says that the returning cast now has its first new addition in the form of the lovely Penelope Cruz.

'While We're Young' Review: Noah Baumbach's Ben Stiller Comedy Has Mass Appeal

To date, the most successful movie that Noah Baumbach has been involved with grossed $530 million worldwide. This is an astounding and somewhat surprising figure until it’s revealed that the movie in question is ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ – a movie that Baumbach co-wrote with the writer of the other two 'Madagascar’ movies, Eric Darnell. As a director, Baumbach’s most successful movie to date is 2005’s ‘The Squid and the Whale,’ which grossed a little over $7 million domestically. This will all change when ‘While We’re Young’ – which premiered in Toronto and was the New York Film Festival’s Surprise Screening on Sunday evening – reaches theaters next year. Noah Baumbach has made a commercially viable film.

Released in 1999, 'Mystery Men' starred Ben Stiller, William H. Macy and Hank Azaria as a trio of wannabe superheroes with unimpressive "powers" who unite with an unlikely group of outcasts to stop an insane villain from destroying their city. Based on 'Flaming Carrot Comics' by Bob Burden and bolstered by a hilarious ensemble cast, the film unfortunately wasn't a huge success at the box office, but -- like its protagonists -- went on to become something of a scrappy underdog in its own right, and is treasured by many as an underrated comedy classic. Fifteen years later, we revisit the cast of this wacky not-so-superhero ensemble flick and see what they're up to now.

After the wild and crazy success of Steven Soderbergh's 'Magic Mike,' it doesn't surprise us in the slightest that a movie about the Chippendales dancers is in the works. It also doesn't surprise us that Alan Ball of HBO's 'True Blood' fame is writing and directing the project. What does surprise us is that Ben Stiller is being eyed for the lead in a movie about the world's most famous male strippers.

Released in 1996 and directed by Ben Stiller, 'The Cable Guy' was a dark comedy that showed audiences a different side of Jim Carrey. The actor played Chip Douglas, a lonely and disturbed cable guy raised on TV, who desperately tries to befriend Steven (Matthew Broderick), but when Steven doesn't readily accept Chip's zealous and intrusive overtures, he finds that there are sinister consequences. Produced by Judd Apatow (who didn't receive credit for the work he did on the script at the time), the film was a moderate success and went on to become a cult classic. Seventeen years later, we're revisiting the cast of the film to see what they're up to now.

In 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,' Ben Stiller plays an ordinary, average guy -- a little too ordinary and average perhaps. He's never really traveled or gone anywhere special, he's never done anything exceptional. He just lives his day-to-day, monotonous life without any real excitement, as alarmingly pointed out to him by an eHarmony tech support worker -- of all people -- in the latest clip.
