Mike Myers has said he'd like to do a fourth 'Austin Powers' film, but from the perspective of the franchise's villain, Dr. Evil.
Mike Myers has addressed the elephant in the room - he hopes to one day do a fourth 'Austin Powers' movie, but not from the perspective of the 'International Man of Mystery' and titular character himself. Instead, the comedian thinks it would be fun if he could bring Dr. Evil front-and-centre, telling the next chapter in the series from the villain's perspective.
Mike Myers would love a 'Dr. Evil' movie
The franchise is one that has brought in millions in the box office and on home release, with fans across the globe having searched for information regarding another sequel ever since the release of 'Goldmember' in 2002. Though nothing's yet official, this is what he had to say in a recent chat.

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’.
54 year old Myers famously played Dr. Evil, as well as the title character, in three movies from 1997 to 2002. 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.
Annoyed that Steve Bannon had already taken the title of ‘Secretary of Evil’, Myers in character described himself as Trump’s “ideas guy” and explained that “the wall, that was all me, but I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish”.

For his lively film directing debut, Mike Myers (aka Austin Powers) traces the remarkable life of his friend, the almost too-likeable music manager Shep Gordon. A mensch is a really nice guy, and this film documents how Gordon has created a makeshift family of loyal friends around him, even though he's never had a proper family of his own. It's an engaging movie that reminds audiences that the most important thing in life is certainly not fame.
Shep Gordon came to Los Angeles as a young man and happened to stay in the same hotel where Joplin, Hendrix and Morrison were hanging out. Quickly getting involved in their blurry world of drugs and money, Shep won over everyone he met simply because of his integrity and generosity. As a manager, he lived the high-life with high-powered girlfriends like Sharon Stone (who introduced him to Buddhism) and a Playboy Playmate wife. He helped Groucho Marx sort out his finances, and worked with lifelong pal Alice Cooper to create Cooper's iconic on-stage persona. And he's still considered one of the best fix-it men in the business. His home in Maui is a bolt-hole for any of his celebrity buddies who are trying to escape the limelight.
The film is assembled with a snappy rhythm that catches a sense of Shep's fast-paced lifestyle. It's packed with great film clips, hilarious home movies and even a few re-enactments. But the best stories are told by the starry interviewees who clearly adore Shep and recount riotous backstage anecdotes about their experiences with him, as well as his larger-than-life personality and unstoppable libido. The most jaw-dropping story is about how he ramped up clean-cut Canadian singer Anne Murray's reputation and career by having her photographed with super-cool lothario Teddy Pendergrass. But with a life this high-flying, Shep has never found a life partner or had his own children. Although he has become a father figure to his ex-wife's kids, essentially raising them himself.

Shep Gordon may not be as famous as some of the biggest celebrities in the world, but you can bet they count him among their closest friends. A popular Jewish music manager who took on the career after meeting Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix, Shep's first subject was shock rocker Alice Cooper in 1965. Since then, his Hollywood career has exploded having also worked alongside the likes of Pink Floyd, Luther Vandross, Blondie, Ann Murray and others. Not only that, but Shep instigated the breakthrough of celebrity chefs and also become close personal friends with the 14th Dalai Lama during his venture into Buddhism. Now, though, after a life of luxury and living other people's lives, this 'mensch' as his star friends call him (a Yiddish word essentially meaning 'a good person') is looking for a life of his own.
The 50 year-old actor, and his wife Kelly, are now parents to a healthy daughter. "We couldn't be happier," the couple said.

The 2014 National Board Of Review Awards Gala in New York was chock-full of Hollywood's biggest stars of the moment including 'The Wolf Of Wall Street' star and director Leonardo Dicaprio and Martin Scorsese, as well as Meryl Streep who later shocked attendees with her speech against Disney's apparent bigotry and anti-Semitism.

With WWF-style wrestling, vivid color schemes, a scary ogre who's not that scary, psychological evaluation by a talking donkey, loads of humor, and a simple and straightforward plot, Shrek zings along, providing fun and thrills at every turn. But the real treasure lies in Shrek's ability to subtlety poke fun at the mega-mouse corporation of Disney en route to providing a quick 85 minutes of pure entertainment. Torturing the Gingerbread Man? I'm sold.

The sequel begins where part one left off. Ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) and his now equally ogre-rific wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) embark on a hilarious honeymoon montage, complete with mermaid-tossing. They return to find Donkey (Eddie Murphy) still fulfilling his role as "annoying talking animal." Before they can kick him out, however, they receive an invitation from Fiona's parents, King Harold (John Cleese) and Queen Lillian (Julie Andrews), who want to meet their daughter's new husband. Unfortunately, they didn't see the first film, and have no idea that their daughter is now permanently of the green persuasion, as is their new son-in-law.
