Mike Myers Returns as Dr. Evil on Saturday Night Live
Saturday Night Live aired its final episode of 2014 last night, with Amy Adams hosting and One Direction as the musical guest. One of the highlights of last night's episode was during the cold open, where none other than Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) interrupted the sketch to offer his thoughts on the Sony hack, North Korea's involvement and Sony's cancellation of The Interview's release. As you can tell from the studio audience's applause, Dr. Evil's presence was quite welcomed last night.
Mike Myers starred as Dr. Evil in the hit comedy trilogy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery (1997), Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002). Austin Powers 4 had been in development for several years, and we last heard in 2011 that Mike Myers had agreed to come back as both Austin Powers, but we haven't heard anything else about the project's progress.
It's possible that this brief appearance could garner enough buzz to get Austin Powers 4 off the ground, but we're not sure if a script is even ready, or if a director is attached. Jay Roach directed all three Austin Powers movies, but it isn't clear if he would come back to the helm. Would you like to see Dr. Evil back on the big screen?
