LOS ANGELES, June 5 (UPI) -- Country music star Willie Nelson has confirmed he will have a cameo in the upcoming, big-screen comedy Zoolander 2, featuring Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

"Well, Owen and I are good buddies and we stay pretty close in touch," Nelson told TV's Access Hollywood.


"[Owen] is the one who asked me if I wanted to do it. I said, 'Let's do it.'"

Nelson joins a roster of stars -- including Penelope Cruz and Justin Bieber -- who will be seen in the eagerly awaited followup to 2001's Zoolander. The film is set for theatrical release Feb. 12, 2016.
