Dr. Evil, created and portrayed by Mike Myers, made an appearance on The Tonight Show for the first time in a very long while, nearly sixteen years. On Wednesday night, the Austin Powers’ star went on Jimmy Fallon’s show and characterized the iconic villain once again.
In a clip which we have for you below, Mike, or Dr. Evil, along with Jimmy Fallon, can be seen playing a joke on the Trump administration. As you may know, Donald’s government has been fraught with problems including the firing of many critical officials over a short period.
The joke is that Dr. Evil was one of them and he lost his job as the “minister of evil” to Steve Bannon. In the clip we have below, Dr. Evil joked that he was an “idea guy” at the White House.
In case you aren’t aware, Mike Myers first brought Dr. Evil to the big screen back in 1997 along with Elizabeth Hurley; in 1999 with Heather Graham; and in 2002 with Beyonce Knowles.
It’s been more than ten years since Mike reprised his role as Dr. Evil, and the fans loved it. And what a perfect time to play the role as its seemingly pertinent to whats been called one of the worst federal governments in the United States’ recent history.
Previously, Mike Myers said to The Hollywood Reporter that he would love to make another movie but would “have to see.”
Mike said he was devastated by the death of his father, and to turn that tragedy into art for the public and his fans to enjoy is something to which “a person never gets tired of.”
In other news, Mike recently sold his house for $14 million. The Canadian comedian hasn’t been in the headlines much lately, except the book he wrote on his native Canada and the selling of his New York property.
