Cara Delevingne 'Up For Female Lead In Zoolander 2'
Model reportedly under consideration for prime part in comedy sequel...
Cara Delevingne has made no secret of the fact that she'd like to leave modelling behind to become an actress.
And the 22-year-old British beauty could have found the perfect vehicle to help her make the transition, if reports are to be believed.
The Sun claims that CD is in talks with Ben Stiller and his team about taking the female lead role in the long-awaited sequel to hit modelling comedy Zoolander.
Yep, Cara could be giving it her best Blue Steel if the casting actually happens - and the paper's mole claims that Stiller and co. have been impressed with her sense of fun.
"Ben and producers want a big-name model for the film and they need to be jokers and full of natural comedy.

"They’ve been closely following Cara and her antics during the past couple of years. They are still working out what the exact role will be but it's likely to include a lot of goofing around."
And the source also claimed that the model is ready to try something different.
"Everything Cara's done has been super serious and worthy but her agents think it's time she spread her wings.
"It could be the role to make her name in the US. Initial meetings have taken place with the agents but now Ben wants to meet Cara and work out if their chemistry is good."
And Suki Waterhouse is also reported to be in the frame for a role in the follow-up to Stiller and Owen Wilson's 2001 movie.
The source added: "Zoolander 2 will be casting a lot of models because the producers want to make it bigger and better than the first film.
"They will be scouting for the original big-name supermodels to be involved but they're very aware that there are not a lot of models who can act.
"Suki and Cara could be exactly what the film needs to ensure it’s a box-office hit."
