Zoolander 2 will include Will Ferrell as Mugatu

Mugatu Zoolander

“Todd! Are you not aware that I get farty and bloated with a foamy latte?!?!?!”

I think we can all agree that “Zoolander” was a cult comedy favorite and Will Ferrell as Mugatu could arguably be the highlight of the film. While we have known about “Zoolander 2” happening for quite some time the details of who will return have been questionable…until now. According to a recent interview with Will Ferrell over at JoBlo, Will Ferrell revealed that the infamous fashion designer Mugatu will indeed return.

We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.
 
– Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell has been a comic icon since his premiere on “Saturday Night Live” with his incredibly animated personality that seemed to overshadow anyone who shared the stage with him. He’s definitely had some movie duds that capitalized on recycled humor from previous films and sketches, but when he’s at his best he’s unstoppable.

I love Ben Stiller and even appreciate Owen Wilson at times, but when compared to Will Ferrell it’s hard to outperform him in the realm of comedy. Zoolander and Hansel definitely had their laugh-filled moments but Mugatu’s abrupt, sassy fashionista behavior had me rolling on the floor. You always need an antagonist to counter the protagonist and when Ferrell counters, he counters with a haymaker!

Who is excited for the return of Mugatu?
