Mike Myers, Aka Austin Powers, Will Star In A Netflix Series In Several Different Roles
From Dr Evil to the Love Guru, the Canadian actor is a master of disguise.
We don't know much about the project yet, but if the movies Wayne’s World and Austin Powers are among your favorites (congratulations, you've hit 30!), you're likely to be happy at the news we're about to give you. Netflix has just announced that Mike Myers, the chameleonic actor, has signed a contract with the platform to create a six-episode series.
"I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in", he declared.
The series, which hasn't yet been named, will be produced by Mike Myers, as well as his former collaborator on Austin Powers, John Lyons, and his manager Jason Weinberg. More information about the project should be released by the streaming platform soon.
It'll be a comedy, of course. And yes, the Canadian will play several different characters. The actor, now aged 55, entered the showbiz world on Saturday Night Live, where he and Dana Carvey created characters for a sketch, who later became the stars of Wayne’s World.
