There's plenty of male eye candy too, like Midwesterner Chris, who's plucked from a family vacation in New York to do the Zoolander thing, and High School Musical's Corbin Bleu. Elle Macpherson also pops up as the agency head who runs a tight ship to round out the roster of beauty (check out the pretty pictures).
