BIOGRAPHY:

Michael John Myers was born in 1963 in Scarborough, Ontario. His television career really started in 1988, when he joined "Saturday Night Live" (1975), where he spent six seasons. He brought to life many memorable characters, such as Dieter and Wayne Cambell. His major movies include Wayne's World (1992), Wayne's World 2 (1993), So I Married an Axe Murderer (1993), the Austin Powers movies and The Cat in the Hat (2003).


TRIVIA:
  • 2000: The Hollywood Reporter reported that he was being considered for the role of Inspector Clouseau, in _The Pink Panther (2006)_ (qv). A fan of 'Peter Sellers' (qv) (who played Clouseau in the original film), Myers was said to be initially reluctant to do the role, but became enthused about it after meeting with 'Ivan Reitman' (qv) (who was originally set to direct). Reitman told the Calgary Sun that the new film "won't be a retread of the 'Peter Sellers' (qv) versions. We want something new and fresh. Mike has to find a whole new character for Clouseau that is not 'Peter Sellers' (qv), but is also not Austin Powers." In March 2002, Myers withdrew from the project.
  • Is of Scottish and English heritage.
  • In remembrance of his father, Eric, he wears the ring his father received from the Encyclopaedia Britannica corporation when he was named Salesman of the Year as his wedding band.
  • As a teenager, he would act out his Wayne character to girls at parties.
  • Used to take dancing lessons in Toronto.
  • His performance as Dr. Evil in the "Austin Powers" movies is ranked #35 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
  • In 1993, he received a phone call from 'Barbra Streisand' (qv), asking him to appear as Linda Richman, opening for Streisand at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - her first concert in 22 years.
  • He is an Alumnus from the Famous Improv Olympic along with actors 'Vince Vaughn' (qv), late 'Chris Farley' (qv), 'Ossie Beck' (qv), 'Tina Fey' (qv), 'Amy Poehler' (qv) and 'Adam McKay' (qv).
