The father of Ben Stiller plays the infamous agent in the film “Derek Zoolander” called Maury Ballstein. In the film, he is part of a plot to assassinate the Malaysian Prime Minister. It is a harrowing tale and shows us why we can never trust anyone who works with our spies. Thankfully, Ben plays a better Maury Ballstein than he does himself. This guy has the wackiest ideas and is more than willing to use his skills to get what he wants.
Derek Zoolander’s agent
The hapless young model named “Derek” wants to give up the modeling world to build a school for children who can’t read. To achieve his goal, Derek’s agent convinces him to join a modeling agency run by Mugatu, a billionaire who claims to need a model for his latest fashion collection. In fact, Mugatu wants Derek to join his agency as an assassin, because the new Prime Minister of Malysia is trying to pass laws regulating child labor.
While the character is portrayed as a self-absorbed model, he is actually very nice and has a warm personality. He doesn’t speak Malay, and he’s a great friend of Hansel. This makes Derek stand out in a crowd of bitchy superstars, and it’s clear that the character is not like them. In fact, Derek’s surname is a combination of the names of two Calvin Klein models, Mark Vanderloo and Johnny Zander. Apparently, Zanderloo was considered too obvious, but it’s not revealed in the movie.
Maury Ballstein is a competent modeling agent who’s willing to expose Mugatu’s schemes and help Derek become a successful model. He has a wonderful team of assistants, including Mugatu (Millie Jovovich) and Katinka (Christine Taylor). However, the two main characters aren’t the only ones who play a part in this movie. There are many funny scenes, and it’s not just Zoolander who gets the best roles in the movie.
Mugatu introduces Derek’s minder Katina, who is tall and sinister. Katinka Ingabogovinanana is played by Milla Jovovich. The two of them get along great, but the minder is quite a handful. Eventually, Derek becomes a model, but she’s afraid of committing suicide. It’s the same story with Matilda.
Ben Stiller, who co-wrote the movie and directed the film, is the father of the movie’s stars. Ben Stiller co-wrote the script and stars in almost every scene. Maury Ballstein is played by Stiller’s father, Jerry Stiller. His wife, Matilda, and sister are also in the movie. Other notable actors include Will Ferrell, Owen Wilson, and Mugatu.
In ‘Bleeding Bright,’ a group of young people, including Derek, visit the Derelicte Coal Mine in search of information about Mugatu. After reading a critical Time article about the company’s leadership, Matilda becomes suspicious of the mysterious Mugatu. Derek ignores her concerns, but she eventually gets information from a former hand model. She believes the fashion industry is behind several political assassinations. Meanwhile, her new husband, Hansel, goes to his father’s coal mine and meets with Mugatu. This incident leads to a confrontation between the two of them, with each trying to find information on Mugatu’s plan.
Zoolander has some serious personal problems, but he’s not alone. In ‘Bleeding Bright,’ another group of fashion execs hire Mugatu and Ballstein to brainwash him into killing Malaysian Prime Minister Woodrow Asai. Despite his personal issues, the assassination is bound to strike a blow against the garment industry, which uses cheap labor in Malaysia to make many of the clothing pieces in the world. However, as Mugatu tries to uncover the truth behind the plot, he receives assistance from two other individuals – a journalist Matilda Jeffries and a journalist Christine Taylor – who warns Derek of the planned assassination.
Meanwhile, Mugatu is another fashion mogul and perhaps the most influential man in American fashion. His company, Mugatu Canine, publishes a fashion magazine called Mugatu and has a Midtown skyscraper that can be recognized by its giant “M” capstone. His latest project is the ‘Derelict’ line, which is aimed at elevating the style of the homeless.
The movie is based on the novel The Last Book of Moses by William Goldman. It centers around the fictional character Derek Zoolander, a male supermodel and three-time Male Model of the Year. He is vain and shallow and lives in a loft with three other male supermodels. Maury Ballstein, Derek’s father, is the agent for the trio, and he is in cahoots with the mysterious Jacobim Mugatu, the head of the fashion industry who owns sweatshops all over the world.
Maury Ballstein’s underwear company
In “Derek’s Underwear,” the comedian plays the role of Maury Ballstein, the creative genius behind the underwear line Balls Models. Maury Ballstein has been working secretly with Mugatu, a clothing company, for years. He has even sold male models to Mugatu, who “die” in horrendous freak accidents, to cover up his plans. But despite his success as a model, Derek realizes he must find another purpose in life.
