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
This is the most shagadelic news we've heard in quite some times!
We're delighted to report that after YEARS of speculation, Mike Myers has officially just closed his deal for the fourth installment of his wildly successful, completely HIGHlarious Austin Powers franchise!
No word on what kind of shenanigans the UK's best and SEKSIEST spy will be up to this time around, nor have they secured a director, but fingers crossed that Jay Roach will come back, as well!
But until we know, we're happy wait with quiet anticipation!
What do U think?? Are U looking forward to a new Austin Powers??
Austin Powers star Mike Myers is going to have a little baby Shrek of his own.
The 47-year-old actor and his wife, Kelly Tisdale are expecting their first child together. Kelly is said to be in her second trimester and was seen in New York earlier this week showing off her baby bump.
Myers' rep said, "I can confirm they are expecting a child."
Such happy news! We bet they're so, so excited.

Sneaky devil went ahead and married his sweetheart and didn't tell anyone!
It's been confirmed that Mike Myers tied the knot with his long-time girlfriend Kelly Tisdale- five months ago! According to his rep, the pair exchanged vows in a "beautiful" private ceremony in New York.
Aw! How nice! We're happy for them…though we wish we could have seen the dress! (And the guest list!)
Congrats to the happy couple! Here's to a long and joyous life together!

If we mention that we think this idea stinks, it's only because Mike Myers will be lending his voice to a skunk!
Now that the Shrek series is over
or so they say, Myers has found a new animated character to lend his voice to: Looney Tunes' alum Pepe LePew!
Looks like Warner Bros is trying to breathe new life into their stock of classic characters, such as Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Porky Pig. Inneresting that they decided to go with a more obscure character first.
After making $1.2 billion for Dreamworks Animaton with Shrek, it's no surprise that Warner would take interest in Myers to voice a CGI version of Pepe Le Pew.
Much like Who Framed Roger Rabbit
or Avatar, the majority of the film will be shot in live action, with only Le Pew and his love interest, Penelope Pussycat, to be CGI characters.
Do U think a movie about the Warner Bros skunk smells like a good idea?
