Owen Wilson, who played Hansel in the first Zoolander film (released back in 2001) says he wants Lady Gaga to play a role in the upcoming sequel, which will also see Ben Stiller reprising his role as Derek Zoolander for the film. The movie is reportedly set to be released in 2012, but Wilson would like Pokerface singer Lady Gaga to step in for a role as a friend of Zoolander. Owen commented:

“Gaga has to be in it. The movie will happen soon. I just saw Ben and I think that people will be happy with some of this new stuff we have.”

Who wants to see Gaga turned in to a flamboyant (wait a minute, she might have that bit covered already) friend of Zoolander? I wish Owen would stick to his usual  ‘quirky filler friend’ role in Wes Anderson movies (a la Darjeeling Limited if I had to choose), but I’m sure a slice of Gaga would be go down well with viewers, so probably not a bad idea.
