Mike Myers brings back Dr Evil to take aim at Trump

"Make The World Evil Again"

Mike Myers reprised his role as Dr Evil for a comedy sketch on The Tonight Show this week (April 4).

Myers portrayed Dr Evil, as well as the titular character, in the three Austin Powers films from 1997 to 2002.

On last night’s Tonight Show, Myers brought Dr Evil back as an ousted Trump cabinet member who was disgruntled that Steve Bannon had already taken the title of “Secretary of Evil”.

Describing himself as Trump’s “ideas guy”, Evil explained that “the wall, that was all me, but I wanted it to be a moat filled with spiky blowfish”, adding: “I didn’t want the Mexicans to pay for it, I wanted Alec Baldwin to pay for it.”

On Trump’s son Don Jr, Evil said: “That guy’s creepy AF. He looks like he’s missing a facial feature. You just don’t know which one.”

Myers’ Evil also indicated that he would run for President in 2020 with Mark Zuckerberg as his running mate.

Earlier this week it was reported that Austin Powers star Verne Troyer had been hospitalised.

The Mini Me actor was reportedly admitted to hospital in Los Angeles on Monday evening (April 2). A statement from the actor’s camp asked fans to “keep Verne in your thoughts and prayers”, adding that he was “getting the best care possible”.

The reason for Troyer’s hospitalisation has not been confirmed, but TMZ reported that police and medics were called to the star’s home and that he was found to be “extremely upset, drunk and suicidal”. The report suggests that Troyer was “transported to a hospital for possible alcohol poisoning” and is “being held for 72 hours for evaluation”.
