2002 was the last time Mike Myers graced audiences with a new Austin Powers movie. Which means not only haven’t we seen the shagadellic super spy in over a decade, we haven’t seen his sworn enemy Dr. Evil, either.
Most would agree that it was Evil who really became the break out character of the series. His hairless cat, rebellious son and ludicrous demands were just some of the hilarious running jokes the character provided. Even so, no one who turned on their TV Saturday night would have expected to see him in anything but an Austin Powers rerun. But they caught him on NBC.
During the cold open of the Amy Adams-hosted Saturday Night Live, alum Myers, as the evil dictator, hijacked the skit. And what did the would-be power monger want? To talk about the Sony Hack, North Korea and The Interview, of course. Check out the Dr. Evil SNL video below. Read More »

In the past decade, the conversation surrounding Mike Myers changed drastically. It went from, “What will that guy do next?” to “Where did that guy go?” After a few flubs, the once hugely successful and influential comedic actor took a step back from the spotlight and went behind the camera. The man best known for Wayne’s World and Austin Powers has now directed his first film; it’s in theaters June 6.
Myers’ film is called Supermensch and it tells the story of legendary music manager Shep Gordon. Far from being a household name, Gordon has helped shape and influence popular culture for decades. Below, watch the fantastic and exciting first Supermensch trailer to see what it’s all about. Read More »

Mike Myers was undoubtably one of the biggest movie stars in the world a decade ago. Wayne’s World, Austin Powers, Shrek, the guy had a long string of massive hits and sequels that afforded him the ability to do many other things. But when 2008’s The Love Guru failed, the actor seemingly took himself off the radar, with the exception few minor roles.
Myers has finally decided to return to the world of show business, but he’s doing it in a very unexpected way. Instead of once again playing Wayne or Austin, the comedic actor will step behind the camera to direct a documentary called Supermensch. The film focuses on talent manager Shep Gordon, who has worked with the likes of Blondie, Alice Cooper, Luther Vandross and others. Read More »

Whether you’re excited or outraged at the prospect of a new Austin Powers movie (and a quick glance at our comments suggests there are people in both camps), you may want to put your feelings on hold just a little while longer. Although news broke a few days ago that Mike Myers was “signed, sealed, delivered” for the fourth installment of the comedy franchise, a new report suggests that the deal hasn’t been signed yet after all, and that New Line actually isn’t too sure what’s going on.
