A List Of All The Celebrity Cameos In ZOOLANDER 2

ZOOLANDER 2: ATTACK OF THE CAMEOS has the most celebrity cameos I have ever seen in a movie. How naive I was when I thought I could remember them all without writing them down. Within 5 minutes, I was already at my memory’s capacity and frantically rifled through my bag to find a pen and paper.

I think (and hope) Stiller included SO MANY CELEBRITIES to make a joke about the way sequels do usually have a cameo overload. There had to be a reason for it, especially with all of the jokes about nostalgia, an obvious reference to the fact there has been such a public outcry for ZOOLANDER 2. But maybe I am reading too much into it. The insane amount of cameos stopped being fun the longer the list grew and quickly devolved into actors appearing on-screening for 2 seconds just so the audience would say “Is that Susan Sarandon?”

Don’t get me wrong, I laughed at times (especially whenever Kristen Wiig was onscreen). However, the movie had its fair share of stale jokes and callbacks from the previous movie that should have been left alone. Not to mention, there was so much going on and so many celebrities to count, I lost track of the plot pretty early on… something about the Fountain of Youth and a “chosen one”??

I wouldn’t make a huge effort to see ZOOLANDER 2 in theaters, unless you want to help me add to the list of cameos. However, it may be worth it to watch the movie eventually, when it is inevitably streaming for free on Netflix, just so you can see Wiig glide through and steal every scene. I hope you enjoy this attempt at listing all of the celebrities in ZOOLANDER 2 (not including Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, and Will Ferrell). Let me know who I missed in the comment section and I will add it.
