It may only be Skitlandia, but this past edition of 'Saturday Night Live' may have locked in the Toobits Award for Best Movie to TV Crossover.

During the "Weekend News Update" segment, Ben Stiller appeared as his character of Derek Zoolander during Stephon's report on the hottest clubs in the City.

He was the only character from the movie "Zoolander" to appear, so the bit wasn't diluted by cast members filling in for Hansel and Mathilda and the like. (Although I wouldn't be surprised if Will Ferrell was willing to appear as Jacobim Mugatu.) The "Pulp Fiction"/"Reservoir Dogs" take on 'Welcome Back, Kotter' may have featured John Travolta as Vinnie Barbarino and Michael McKean and David S. Lander as Lenny & Squiggy from 'Laverne & Shirley', but everybody else in the sketch was played by a cast member. So that was a bastard stepchild in comparison.

Zoolander already made two appearances on television, one of them a short film for the VH1 Fashion Awards. These could be part of the main Toobworld, or they could belong in Skitlandia as well.
