Paramount Pictures has released the final trailer for the upcoming comedy sequel Zoolander 2, which features the return of a fan-favorite character from the first film. At the time of the release of director Ben Stiller’s ridiculous 2001 comedy, Justin Theroux was an actor with a number of credits to his name for bit parts here and there. For Zoolander, he played the evil DJ with a soft spot for Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s “Relax,” but little did we know that a few years later, Theroux would pen the screenplays for Tropic Thunder and Iron Man 2 and go on to a stellar starring turn in the HBO series The Leftovers.

As glimpsed at the beginning of this new trailer, Theroux made time for a cameo in Zoolander 2, which he co-wrote and was at one point going to direct until scheduling issues with The Leftovers forced him to drop out. But Theroux isn’t the only highlight of this new trailer. I’ll admit, I’ve been a bit lukewarm on the comedy sequel as a whole in the wake of Dumb and Dumber To and Anchorman 2, the latter of which wasn’t so much bad as it was forgettable. But this final trailer has a couple of really funny moments, mostly thanks to Will Ferrell’s insane Mugatu, and I’m happy to see SNL standout Kyle Mooney popping up.

So take a look at the final trailer below, via Paramount. The film also stars Penelope Cruz, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, and celebrity gameos galore. Zoolander 2 opens in theaters on February 12th.
