"[On] The Island of Dr. Moreau I told Marlon Brando my plan to save my performance just in case there was a giant whole in the second half - I was going to strap the little man to my chest," Kilmer confessed. "And, you know, you can't get around that visual. And then he [Brando] STOLE my little man!"
Kilmer added that he even got confirmation for his "creation" from Mike Myers himself.
"I asked Mike Myers about it myself. He said, 'absolutely' [it came from that movie]," Kilmer said of the idea for Dr. Evil's little clone. "Same studio made it. And he saw a screening and said, 'that's really funny.'"
