AUSTIN POWERS IN GOLDMEMBER

MIKE MYERS, one of the most multifaceted performers of his generation, has brought an astonishing array of characters to life on both film and television.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Myers began his professional career the day he graduated from high school. Mike took his final exams at nine o'clock in the morning, auditioned for Toronto's famed Second City comedy troupe at noon and was hired at three in the afternoon. This ultimately led to Myers joining Chicago's Second City Troupe, an association that would change his life forever. "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels' discovery of Myers at Second City led to his debut as a featured performer and writer on the show in 1989.

For his groundbreaking 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 "Best Writing for Comedy or Variety Show." Among the characters that Myers made popular performing on SNL are German talk show host, Dieter; Linda Richman in "Coffee Talk;" the hyperactive-hypoglycemic Phillip; Lothar of the Hill People; Simon the boy in the bathtub; Ron Wood and Mick Jagger.

Myers successfully brought his popular SNL character, Wayne Campbell, to the big screen in "Wayne's World", which he also wrote. The film broke box office records and has grossed over $200 million to date. In 1993, he reprised the role of Wayne Campbell in the hit sequel, "Wayne's World 2, " also written by Myers. Between Wayne's World releases, Myers starred as an eccentric Scottish father and his first-generation Scottish-American son in the romantic comedy, "So I Married an Axe Murderer." In 1998 he appeared in Miramax's ensemble drama, "54," starring Ryan Phillipe, Salma Hayek, Neve Campbell and Sela Ward, in which he earned critical acclaim for his portrayal of nightclub owner Steve Rubell.

In 1997 Myers created, wrote, produced and starred in the smash hit "Austin Powers International Man of Mystery." Austin Powers is a fashion photographer/swinger/spy who was cryogenically frozen in the 60's and was thawed in the 90's in order to capture his diabolical nemesis Dr. Evil (also played by Myers). "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" grossed over $200 million to date as and has had an enormous following and impact on our culture.

In 1999, Myers wrote, produced, and starred, in "Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged Me" in which he reprised the roles of 'Austin Powers' and 'Dr. Evil.' This second installment of the series also introduced a hilarious new character, an overweight Scottish double agent named Fat Bastard. In the first weekend the film out-grossed what the original Austin Powers made in its entire domestic theatrical run. To date it has made over $310 million worldwide and its impact on our culture continues to grow. The movie has garnered various awards including several MTV Movie Awards, People's Choice, Grammy and Blockbuster Entertainment awards for both films. Myers himself earned an American Comedy Award for "Funniest Actor in a Movie" for his work in the film.

Myers is also known for lending his voice to the Dreamworks animated feature "Shrek", a modern-day fairy tale about a misunderstood ogre. The film won the Academy Award in the "Best Animated Feature Film" category and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. It was also nominated and awarded the People's Choice award in 2002. Shrek grossed a total of $478 million world-wide.
