Fresh off claiming the Sexiest Woman Alive title, actress Penelope Cruz is putting her award-winning looks to use: She's reportedly signed on to star in the sequel to 2001's supermodel-skewering "Zoolander."

Deadline reports that Cruz is close to a deal for the flick, in which Ben Stiller will reprise his role as the titular airhead model. No word yet on just what Cruz's part might entail, though it would make sense for her to play a model, too.

The site notes that Will Ferrell and Owen Wilson are also rumored to be reprising their parts. Justin Theroux, who played the evil DJ in the first flick, is directing and writing the project.

Stay tuned for more details about the sure-to-be-silly sequel. Like "Anchorman 2" before it, we're expecting "Zoolander 2" to land some great cameos.
