Justin Bieber vs. Ben Stiller in smolder-off for 'Zoolander 2' tease

Who needs a "Blue Steel" look when you've got the "Justin Bieber"?

We may be almost a year out from "Zoolander 2," but on Wednesday the working-on-his-image pop star teased to what appears to be a cameo in the flick, tweeting an image of himself facing off, male-model style, with Ben Stiller, a.k.a. Derek Zoolander.

The image was then retweeted by the 49-year-old actor, who's also directing the comedy.

A Bieber cameo just makes sense: If nothing else, his Calvin Klein campaign proved the 21-year-old is more than capable of flashing Zoolander's trademark "Blue Steel" look, along with the "Magnum," the "Ferrari" and "Le Tigre."

Or maybe that's just Bieber's face? Yeah, that. He'll blend right in on that runway.

Olivia Munn, Penelope Cruz, Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, Fred Armisen and none other than fashion-week fail-safes Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are slated to appear in the February 2016 release, which is currently filming.
