Derek Zoolander is still really, really good looking. Ben Stiller was back in model form on Saturday night, when he stepped out as his beloved character from the 2001 comedy.
The actor, 46, showed up alongside designer Tommy Hilfiger and Daily Show host Jon Stewart at Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars: America Comes Together for Autism Programs at New York City's Beacon Theater. The best and most handsome male model of all time held up a 2013 calendar and on it was his face ... of course.
Stiller announced earlier this year that a Zoolander sequel is in the works. "Ten years is a thousand years [in the modeling industry]. They're both totally out of it and have to start from scratch," Stiller, who starred in the film alongside Owen Wilson, told Empire magazine of the plot. "And then there are things set up at the end of the first movie that we're able to build on, like Derek and Matilda (Christine Taylor) have a son, and Mugatu went to jail. There's a lot there, I'm excited about the idea of doing it. It feels like it's getting close to going."
While we wait for Zoolander 2, catch Stiller at Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars when it airs October 21, 2012 on Comedy Central.
