Los Angeles - Billy Zane is to make an appearance in Zoolander 2.

The 49-year-old actor, who's previously starred in Titanic and Back to the Future, has been cast in the eagerly-awaited sequel to the 2001 comedy film, in which Ben Stiller plays dimwitted male model Derek Zoolander.

Billy made a cameo as himself in the original film and his appearance in the sequel has been confirmed in the latest on-set teaser for Zoolander 2, which shows Ben Stiller appearing to approach his co-star Owen Wilson and saying: "Hey Hansel, wouldn't it be cool if Billy Zane was in Zoolander 2?"

At that stage, the blonde-haired man turns around to reveal himself as Zane, who responds: "Yeah, that'd be great."

Other big-name stars rumoured to appear in the much-hyped sequel include Naomi Campbell, Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn, as well as rap star Kanye West.

What's more, Kanye is reportedly requesting that his wife Kim Kardashian West be given a cameo or small part in the comedy movie.

A source said: "Kanye is friends with Will and appeared briefly in Anchorman 2 but he wanted to be in Zoolander 2 even more. It's very likely that Kim will also appear in some capacity."
