Myers stopped by Jimmy Fallon's 'The Tonight Show' on Wednesday.

More than two decades after he debuted one of his most memorable characters to the world in the first Austin Powers movie, Mike Myers brought back Dr. Evil for a comedy sketch to send up Donald Trump on ‘The Tonight Show’.

The Canadian actor was a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘The Tonight Show’ on Wednesday evening (April 4th), and he decided to revive the comically nefarious bad-guy and reimagine him as an ousted member of Donald Trump’s cabinet.
