AUSTIN POWERS: THE SPY WHO SHAGGED ME

MIKE MYERS (Austin Powers / Dr. Evil / Fat Bastard / Screenwriter / Producer), one of the most multi-faceted performers of his generation, has brought an astonishing array of characters to life on both film and television. Myers once again stars in the double role of the cryogenically-frozen '60s fashion photographer / "swinger" / spy, who is revived in the '90s, and his arch-nemesis 'Dr. Evil.'

Myers was most recently seen in the ensemble drama 54, starring Ryan Phillipe, Salma Hayek, Neve Campbell and Sela Ward, where he gained critical notice for his risk-taking portrayal of Steve Rubell. Myers is due to be seen in the independent film, Pete's Meteor, starring opposite Brenda Fricker and Alfred Molina.

Born and raised in Toronto, Myers began his professional career immediately upon graduating from high school by performing with the city's famed Second City comedy troupe. This ultimately led to Myers joining Chicago's Second City troupe; an association which would change his life forever. It was "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels who discovered him there, which led to his "Saturday Night Live" debut as a featured performer and writer on the show in 1989.

For his ground-breaking work on "Saturday Night Live," Myers was nominated for an Emmy for "Best Performance In A Comedy Or Variety Show" and won an Emmy for writing the show. Among the characters that Myers made popular performing on SNL are 'Dieter,' the host of the avant-garde German television show "Sprockets," 'Linda Richman' in "Coffee Talk," 'Phillip' the hyperactive-hypoglycemic 6 year old, 'Lothar of the Hill People,' 'Simon,' the boy in the bathtub, and impressions of Ron Wood and Mick Jagger.

Mike Myers successfully brought his popular SNL character, 'Wayne Campbell' to the big screen in Wayne's World, directed by Penelope Spheeris. The film broke box office

records and has grossed over $200 million to date. Between Wayne's World releases, Myers starred opposite Nancy Travis in the romantic comedy So I Married an Axe Murderer, directed by Tommy Schlamme. Then in 1993, he reprised the role and reunited with cast members Dana Carvey and Tia Carrere in Myers' hit sequel, Wayne's World 2. Myers is currently at work on many projects.
