Wayne's World - Mike Myers Joins Bohemian Rhapsody

It’s almost impossible to think of Queen’s signature tune “Bohemian Rhapsody” from their album A Night at the Opera without thinking of the sequence in Wayne’s World where Saturday Night Live veterans Mike Myers and Dana Carvey lip sync and head bang to their heart’s content. Therefore, it only makes sense that Mike Myers is currently in talks to take a role in the biopic about Freddie Mercury, the frontman of the aforementioned rock band. Read More »

the gong show reboot

We’re soon going to see more of Mike Myers. His last appearance in a live-action film (without counting documentaries) was Inglorious Bastards, in which he played a British general under heavy prosthetics. Now, he’s playing a British comedian under prosthetics in ABC’s reboot of The Gong Show, once hosted by the recently departed Chuck Barris (who was played by Sam Rockwell in Confessions of a Dangerous Mind). Myers’ character, British performer Tommy Winston Maitland, is the new, somewhat unsettling face of the amateur talent contest.

Below, watch The Gong Show reboot producer Will Arnett introduce the 70-year-old comic.

Mike Myers Hosting The Gong Show as Tommy Maitland - Austin Powers

In case you hadn’t heard, there’s a remake of the classic 1970s amateur talent contest TV series The Gong Show coming to ABC in June. The show featured contestants displaying odd, questionable talents in front of a panel of celebrity judges who had the power to hit a gong that would end the performance before it was even over, indicating that they had seen enough.

Will Arnett and his Electric Avenue production banner are behind the show, but it’s the recently announced host that is turning some heads, because even though the name is not a recognizable one, the person who is actually doing the hosting is someone you’re definitely familiar with. It’s former Saturday Night Live star Mike Myers playing a fictional British comedian named Tommy Maitland, complete with prosthetic make-up enhancements, a fake background and everything.

Wayne's World 2 Rewritten

As far as comedy sequels go, Wayne’s World 2 is among the better ones. Even though it’s not nearly as good as the original Wayne’s World, it’s still much better than all but three of the other movies based on Saturday Night Live characters, and even ended up towards the top of our list ranking all of them. But the sequel that fans enjoyed would have been drastically different if Mike Myers had been allowed to use the idea he originally had. Instead, the Saturday Night Live star was forced to rewrite the script at the last minute. So why was Wayne’s World 2 rewritten? Find out below Read More »

It trailer mash-up with The Cat in the Hat

Michael Myers is one of the most iconic names in horror, but there’s a chance that a fanmade edit of the first trailer for the new adaptation of Stephen King’s It might turn former Saturday Night Live cast member Mike Myers into an even more terrifying figure.

If the first trailer for It wasn’t already scary enough with the haunting clown Pennywise lurking in the sewer and appearing in a slideshow with that creepy smile of his, imagine how much more frightening it is with Mike Myers’ version of The Cat in the Hat.

Mike Myers - Del Close Movie

You may not know the man by name, but he’s been responsible for mentoring some of the biggest names in comedy today, pushing them to see comedy as more than just a way to make people laugh.
