As if there was any doubt!
Shrek — a.k.a. the Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, and Eddie Murphy franchise that has raked in nearly $3 billion — is getting a fifth installment!
While Dreamworks has yet to go public with their timetable, the company's CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has just reassured the world that the fiercely funny animated fairy tale will get at least one more sequel!
Sure, it's been four years since Shrek Forever After stormed into theaters, but apparently that's all part of their master plan!
Mr. Katzenberg confessed:
Everyone loves cast reunions. Especially ones that happen 20 years after the fact.
The cast of Wayne’s World reunited in Beverly Hills yesterday for an event hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in honor of the HIGHlarious 1992 film!
Mike Myers, Lorne Michaels, Rob Lowe, Lara Flynn Boyle, Dana Carvey and Penelope Spheeris all turned up for the big event!
This was perhaps a bit surprising given that Mike, Dana, and Penelope had fallen out following filming. Apparently, Mike had not only been difficult on set, but was rumored to have taken his Dr. Evil voice from one of Dana’s impressions. Meanwhile, Penelope had been upset that Mike had reportedly prevented her from directing the Wayne’s World sequel. Jeeeeez.
What’s more, Mike admitted:
The MTV Movie Awards aren't until Sunday, but Jamie Foxx is already a winner.
The Django Unchained star—who is also up for Best Male Performance— will receive the Generation Award for his work in many, many AHmazing movies.
And he'll be in great company too!
Jamie will join past bad ass honorees like Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, Tom Cruise and Jim Carrey.
After seeing TONS of his movies, we fully support MTV's choice. The man can do everything from comedy to drama and makes it look wayyyy too easy.
He's already won an Oscar, but we bet that golden popcorn will taste just as delicious.
It's always a pleasure to see Mike Myers acting weird in costume!
This video is no different and we highly recommend you take the 4 minutes and 37 seconds to watch it!
Academy Award winning actor Kevin Kline hasn't been treating his Oscar statue properly over the years, so etiquette expert Sir Cecil Worthington is going to show him the ropes.
Check out the HIGHlarious Funny or Die short (above)!
Mike Myers is apparently in talks to bring the whole Austin Powers franchise to broadway!
The first movie debuted in 1997 with the two sequels happening in 1999 and 2002, but an almost decade long gap since the last one isn't stopping Mike's musical dreams.
Myers is currently hard at work on the 4th Austin Powers movie but he's reported to be considering creating the stage adaption.
A source said:
SNL alum Dana Carvey may get to use his Regis Philbin impersonation full time!
Finding a replacement for Regis has been a trying task. A few names, including Ryan Seacrest, Andy Cohen and Kelly Ripa’s husband, Mark Consuelos, have been slowly bumped of the list of contenders.
However, a source at Live! with Regis and Kelly says producers have had Carvey on their minds since the beginning of their search — and it's starting to grow on them.
On the record producers say
He gets worse and worse.
Back in August, Joseph Hyungmin Son, who played Dr. Evil's sidekick in the original Austin Powers, was convicted of committing the abduction and gang-rape of a twenty year old woman back in 1990…on Christmas Eve. Ugh.
Then in September, we were very pleased to hear that Joseph was sentenced to life in prison for felony torture.
NOW, we're hearing that
