Ben Stiller announces “Zoolander 2” and it’s really, really ridiculously good-looking

Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson are back at it. The two announced the arrival of Zoolander 2 by walking in the Valentino runway show as a part of Paris Fashion Week. These two really, really ridiculously good-looking men [Ed. really?] have been mulling over a Zoolander 2 for several years now, but the Valentino show this morning marked the official announcement.

On the runway, Ben Stiller rocked a Night Butterflies brocade suit with overcoat and black Creeper shoes, while Owen Wilson wore a Silk Continent print Pajama suit with Double Cashmere overcoat and Black sneakers. The normally subdued audience of Paris Fashion Week went wild as the two strutted down the runway and exchanged a hateful glare. As they strutted back, Stiller ripped Vine star Jerome Jarre’s phone out of his hand and took a Snapchat video. The whole exchange can be seen in the live Snapchat story “Fashion in Paris.”

Study break of the week: ‘Burning Love’

But what can you do in this limited amount of time? Homeland is too long… One Buzzfeed article inevitably leads to 5 Buzzfeed articles.

Our study break of the week? We suggest ‘Burning Love,’ a fantastic (and short!) web series In only two seasons, its cast included names like Jennifer Aniston, Michael Cera, Adam Brody, and Kristen Bell. Created by Ben Stiller, this Yahoo series blatantly mocks romantic reality shows like ‘The Bachelor/The Bachelorette.’ Each episode is no more than 20 minutes long and is jam-packed with the subtle, yet hilarious humor that sitcoms today only hope to achieve.  It is a common misconception that web series are not as high quality a form of entertainment as prime time television. This is not only inaccurate, but also is consistently allowing some of the best shows to fly unfortunately below the radar.
