Mike Myers and Wife Have a Baby Girl!

FP_IMAGE_5015730/FP_SET_5012255

Actor Mike Myers, 50, and his wife, Kelly Tisdale, have given birth to a baby girl!  They have named their bundle of joy ‘Sunday Molly.’  The couple share a two-year old son, Spike, who was born in September 2011.  Myers and Tisdale have been together since 2006 and married in 2010.

“Anyone who tells you fatherhood is the greatest thing that can happen to you, they are understating it,” the Shrek star told Deadline last fall while promoting his directorial debut, Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.

“I am the happiest I have ever been in my life,” he added. “I knew I wanted to be a father. I didn’t know it was going to be this awesome or that my kid would come out so beautiful and lovely…I had a great dad and always wanted to have the experience, and I’m having it now.”

Congrats to the family!  What do you think of the name?  There is a rumor that there will be an Austin Powers 4 and that Myers officially signed on for it.  I wonder if that will ever come to fruition?  I can’t believe he’s 50.

Mike Myers signs on for ‘Austin Powers 4’!

Austin Powers first hit the screen back in 1997 – and now – reports are surfacing that Mike Myers has signed on to star in a fourth movie! The film will be the first in the series since 2002’s ‘Goldmember’, which costarred Beyonce.

It will be Myers’ first trip back to the starring live-action big screen since his 2008 bomb, “The Love Guru”; he had a small part in “Inglorious Basterds.” He’s largely focused on voice work in his big money “Shrek” series. Something about Myers and accents derived from the British isles means major success, it seems.

Myers also recently revived another one of his star characters in Wayne Campbell — albeit briefly — with Dana Carvey as Garth in a “Wayne’s World” cold opener of “Saturday Night Live” this February.

Both The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline offer updates on the potential film; Deadline writesthat a fourth film has long been offered, and Myers is just now showing interest, while THR says that he is very close to signing on.

I love this idea … if the movie doesn’t suck. I hated ‘Goldmember’ it was painful to watch. This could explain why it took almost a decade to make another one.

Here’s to hoping it doesn’t suck!

Mike Myers to star in a Quentin Tarantino film?

wenn1916339.jpg

Quentin Tarantino turned John Travolta’s entire career around with a memorable role in “Pulp Fiction,” and now he’s lending a similar hand to Mike Myers. According to Variety, the comedian who packed them in with the “Austin Powers” series and is the voice of the world famous green ogre “Shrek,” is set to join the cast of the director’s WWII thriller, “Inglorious Bastards.”

No, this isn’t some bizarre revamp of Myers character Fat Bastard from the “Powers” films. Instead, Tarantino’s long-awaited drama will find Myers playing British General Ed Fenech, a military genius who helps devise a plan to take out a number of Nazi leaders. He’ll join an already intriguing cast that includes Brad Pitt, Eli Roth (the “Hostel” director), B.J. Novak (the latest breakout star of “The Office”) and another Tarantino comeback candidate, Nastassja Kinski (“Cat People”).

While it’s unclear how dramatic “Bastards” will be in tone, this isn’t the first time Myers has stepped out of his over-the-top comedy comfort zone. In fact, he was one of the few actors to receive strong reviews in the 1998 drama “54.” And that’s a big compliment considering what a mess that misfire was.

Still, this role couldn’t come at a better time. After the disappointing returns for this summer’s “The Love Guru,” the industry was questioning whether Myers could succeed at anything but the International Man of Mystery. And rumor had it that the failure of “Guru” had Myers working on putting “Austin Powers 4” on the fast track. It’s still anyone’s guess if and when that will occur, but, happily, “Bastards” will keep him busy once production begins Oct. 15 in Germany.
