The 'Saturday Night Live' alum will join Billy Zane, Penelope Cruz and Kristen Wiig in the sequel.

Fred Armisen is the latest actor to join Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson in Zoolander 2.

In a video posted on Instagram Tuesday, the Saturday Night Live alum can be seen packing for an upcoming trip to Rome, where the sequel currently is being filmed. Armisen shoves his glasses, toothbrush, pencils and headphones into a suitcase before bringing out a cup holder with three iced coffees. "And for Ben and the crew, some nice American coffee, just in case they're homesick," he says as he closes the suitcase.

Stiller confirmed Armisen's role in the sequel by reposting his video announcement with the caption: "Excited @sordociego (Fred Armisen!!) is joining the #zoolander2 cast!"

Zoolander 2 is slated for a Feb. 12, 2016, release.
