What The Cast Of Austin Powers Looks Like Today

It's been a long time since Mike Myers took us on a groovy journey of slapstick espionage action with his Austin Powers franchise. Throughout three films, we were treated to a star-studded cast of past and future celebrities, including acting legends, R&B icons, and former child stars. 

Let's cryogenically freeze ourselves, hop in the way-back machine, and take a look at what the cast of all three comedies looked like back then and what they're up to now. And when you thaw yourself out, please do your best to control the VOLUME OF YOUR VOICE!

Mike Myers — Austin Powers, Dr. Evil, Fat Bastard, Goldmember

Everyone knows Mike Myers from his six-year run on Saturday Night Live, where he played a slew of memorable characters, including metalhead Wayne Campbell on the recurring sketch "Wayne's World"—which, of course, spawned a pair of feature-length movies. Staying true to form, Myers also wrote, produced and played multiple characters in all three Austin Powers films, including Powers, Dr. Evil, and the endlessly hungry Fat Bastard.

After the Austin Powers trilogy ended, Myers continued his work as the voice of the title character in the Shrek franchise, returning for Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Forever After. Myers also played the title character in 2003's The Cat in the Hat, which earned him nominations for both a Kids' Choice Award for Favorite Movie Actor and a pair of Razzie Awards for Worst Actor and Worst Screen Couple. Sadly, the Razzies didn't stop there. 2008's The Love Guru won a terrible trifecta of Razzie Awards for Worst Actor, Worst Screenplay, and Worst Picture—and they even went so far as to nominate Myers for Worst Actor of the Decade. Oh, behave!

In 2002, Myers' Hollywood Walk of Fame star was unveiled, followed by his induction into Canada's Walk of Fame a year later. Canada also honored the comedian by putting his face on a limited-edition series of stamps alongside Martin Short, Jim Carrey, Catherine O'Hara and Olivier Guimond. Most recently, in 2017, Myers was appointed as an Officer of the Order of Canada, officially honoring his status as a homegrown comedic legend.

Elizabeth Hurley — Vanessa Kensington

On the screen, English actress Elizabeth Hurley is known primarily for her role as Vanessa Kensington in the first two Austin Powers films, though those are just a pair of entries in a lengthy filmography that includes Rowing with the WindThe Long WinterPassenger 57Mad Dogs and Englishmen, and others.

Off the screen, Hurley is a very well-known model and celebrity. She garnered major tabloid attention in 1990s for her 13-year relationship with Hugh Grant, whom she famously accompanied to the premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral in the instantly-legendary black Versace dress held together by gold safety pins. Soon after, she became the face of cosmetics company Estée Lauder, whom she has represented in some capacity for most of her modeling career.

These days, Hurley owns her own beachwear company, Elizabeth Hurley Beach, and plays Queen Helena on the E! television series The Royals. You can keep up with her on Twitter and Instagram.

Michael York — Basil Exposition

Well before Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery arrived in theaters, English actor Michael York had been all over both the big and small screen, as well as the stage.

York, who's been acting since the mid-1960s, starred in The Taming of the Shrew, Romeo and Juliet, Jesus of NazarethLogan's Run, and too many other quality films to list here. He's also an accomplished Broadway actor, having starred in Bent, The Crucible, Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, and the original production of Tennessee William's Out Cry. And don't even get us started on his television credits.

In 2009, York noticed dark circles under his eyes; three years later, the actor was diagnosed with amyloidosis, an extremely rare and difficult to detect condition caused by the abnormal production of insoluble proteins, which stick together in different parts of the body and eventually cause vital organs to shut down. Luckily, he's been undergoing treatment, which has helped alleviate many of the symptoms, and—with York's help—an increased awareness of the disease has led to more medical research and development.

Mimi Rogers — Mrs. Kensington

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery is merely a side note on actress, producer and competitive poker player Mimi Rogers' résumé.

Rogers starred in such noteworthy films as Gung Ho, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Desperate Hours, though 1991's religious drama The Rapture is arguably the highlight of her career. After the first Austin Powers movie, Rogers went on to appear in Reflections on a Crime, The Mirror Has Two Faces, Lost in Space, Ginger Snaps, The Door in the Floor, and For a Good Time, Call.... Her most recent work has revolved around popular television shows, including The X-Files, Two and a Half Men, Wilfred, and Mad Men.

Robert Wagner — Number Two

In addition to his appearance as the Austin Powers series' Number Two, Robert Wagner is also known for his starring roles on It Takes a Thief, Switch, and Hart to Hart in addition to his recurring roles on Two and a Half Men and NCIS. He has also notably starred in A Kiss Before Dying, The Pink Panther, Harper, and The Towering Inferno, among many, many others.

Tragedy struck Wagner when his late wife, Natalie Wood, drowned while sailing off the coast of California's Catalina Island with both Wagner and actor Christopher Walken, on November 29, 1981. Wood's death was originally ruled an accident, but a new investigation was opened in 2013, resulting in the Los Angeles coroner's office amending the actress' death certificate to claim "drowning and undetermined factors" as the cause of death. What those "undetermined factors" are, we may never know, but it's worth noting that Wagner openly supported reopening the investigation.

If you'd like to know more about the distinguished actor, you can read his 2008 autobiography, Pieces of My Heart: A Life.

Seth Green — Scott Evil

Seth Green's professional fortunes have only improved since his days as Dr. Evil's son Scott in all three Austin Powers movies.

Green is definitely a jack of all trades in the entertainment business. The creator, executive producer, writer, director, and main vocal talent of Adult Swim's stop-motion sketch comedy show Robot Chicken, he's directed loads of the show's specials—including everyone's favorite, Robot Chicken: Star Wars. In addition to the Austin Powers series, Green has also starred in Airborne, The Italian Job, Party Monster, Can't Hardly Wait, and Without a Paddle, while also lending his vocal talents to Family Guy's Chris Griffin. Fans of the video game series Mass Effect will also recognize him as pilot Jeff "Joker" Moreau. He's been nominated, and has won, various Primetime Emmy Awards and Annie Awards for his Robot Chicken specials, and you can keep up with the well-rounded entertainer on Twitter @SethGreen.

Mindy Sterling — Frau Farbissina

Mindy Lee Sterling got her start on the syndicated children's series Dusty's Treehouse, but it was her role as of Dr. Evil's stern, loud Germanic associate Frau Farbissina that's her true claim to fame. In fact, you probably won't recognize Sterling from anywhere else—unless you watch TV with your kids.

Sterling is a popular figure on Disney, Nickelodeon, and other children's networks, having appeared on Sister, Sister, The Wild Thornberrys, Even Stevens, Invader ZIM, That's So Raven, Justice League Unlimited, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, iCarly, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated, The Legend of Korra, Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, The Adventures of Puss in Boots, School of Rock, and many, many more. Her warm smile, expressive nature and comedy credentials definitely make her well-suited for family-friendly roles on children's shows.

Will Ferrell — Mustafa

After notching his big-screen breakthrough in Austin Powers, Myers' fellow SNL vet Will Ferrell went on to star in a slew of ever-quotable films, including Old School, Elf, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Step Brothers, and a ton of others.

During his seven-year tenure on SNL, Ferrell assembled a highlight reel that could make any cast member, past or present, green with envy. He impersonated George W. Bush, Cubs announcer Harry Caray, the crooning Robert Goulet, Inside the Actors Studio host James Lipton, and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, among others. 

Ferrell also played professional baseball for ten Major League teams, and although he couldn't ever make solid contact in the batters box, he did retire one batter. Of course, the whole thing was a goof for HBO and his website Funny or Die; proceeds were donated to Cancer for College and Stand Up to Cancer.

Heather Graham — Felicity Shagwell

Eleven years before she played Felicity Shagwell in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, Heather Graham started picking up leading roles in major films. She first starred in 1988's License to Drive before making waves in the award-winning Drugstore Cowboy, one of the rare films with a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, the following year. Graham made supporting appearances in Shout, Diggstown, Six Degrees of Separation, and Swingers, and also played Annie Blackburn on 1991's Twin Peaks and Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. She really hit the big time as porn star and rollergirl Brandy in Boogie Nights—and all of that was before Austin Powers.

After playing Felicity Shagwell, Graham went on to star in Committed, Say It Isn't So, Mary, Gray Matters, and the first and third entries in The Hangover series. She also notably appeared on the popular TV medical dramedy Scrubs in 2004. More recently, she's been featured in recurring roles on Showtime's Californication and Netflix's Flaked. You can keep up with the "actress, filmmaker and big nerd" on Twitter @imheathergraham.

Beyoncé Knowles — Foxxy Cleopatra

Beyoncé Knowles is one superstar who certainly doesn't need an introduction.

She has won 22 Grammy Awards out of a staggering 62 nominations, and in 2016, she broke Madonna's record for the most MTV Video Music Awards. Her net worth in 2017 was $350 million, making her one of America's Top 50 Richest Self-Made Women. In 2010, she had already sold 118 million records worldwide—a number that seems likely to grow for decades to come.

The majority of Beyoncé's success came after she played leading lady Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember, though she was already well on her way to superstardom before that. She initially gained fame as the lead singer of Destiny's Child, and following her starring role in Goldmember, she released Dangerously in Love, the first in a growing collection of critically and commercially successful solo albums. You can keep up with the Queen B on Instagram @beyonce—or anywhere celebrity news is covered.

Verne Troyer — Mini Me

Known by most as Mini-Me, the miniature clone of Dr. Evil in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Austin Powers in Goldmember, Verne Troyer has the rare genetic disorder Cartilage–hair hypoplasia (CHH), and stands only 2 feet 8 inches (or 0.81 meters) tall.

Though most widely known for his role in the second and third Austin Powers movies, Troyer has actually appeared in quite a few other films, both before and after. He played Pinocchio in Pinocchio's Revenge, the Alien Son in Men in Black, Baby Joe in Mighty Joe Young, a band member in How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Griphook in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, and Coach Punch Cherkov in The Love Guru. More recently, he played himself in the TV movie Trailer Park Boys: Drunk, High & Unemployed.

Troyer maintains a very active and open social media presence. In April 2017, he openly admitted to battling alcohol addiction in a Facebook post, thanking fans for their support. According to TMZ, Troyer was hospitalized for more than two weeks, and has gone to rehab for alcohol abuse multiple times, including when he almost died in 2002 from alcohol poisoning. As he continues his journey back to health, you can get all the latest updates straight from the man himself at @VerneTroyer.

Michael Caine — Nigel Powers

Sir Michael Caine is an absolute icon of the British big screen. Long before he played Austin Powers' father Nigel in Austin Powers in Goldmember, Caine starred in classics such as Zulu, The Ipcress File, Alfie—which scored him an Academy Award nomination±The Italian Job, and Battle of Britain. His filmography also includes acclaimed features from the '70s and '80s such as Get Carter, The Last Valley, Sleuth, The Man Who Would Be King, A Bridge Too FarEducating Rita, and Woody Allen's Hannah and Her Sisters, for which he earned a Best Supporting Actor Oscar.

After showing the world where Austin got his groove, Caine continued the prolific hard-working streak that's helped make him one of the highest-grossing stars at the box office. He had supporting roles in Children of Men and Pixar's Cars 2 and he's also become director Christopher Nolan's good luck charm, playing Alfred Pennyworth in Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy and appearing in The Prestige, Inception, and Interstellar. He even logged a hidden cameo in 2017's Dunkirk because, as Nolan put it, "It's Michael. He has to be in all my films, after all."

Fred Savage — Number Three

Though he's done plenty of other work, there's one role that will follow Fred Savage for the rest of his life. Of course, we're talking about Kevin Arnold on The Wonder Years, the character that made the young actor famous in addition to landing him two Golden Globe nominations and two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. During that time, Savage—who notched an early big-screen credit as the grandson in The Princess Bride—also starred in movies such as Little MonstersVice Versa, and The Wizard.

After growing up and playing the character with the huge mole in Austin Powers in Goldmember, Savage went on to do a lot of prominent voice acting, lending his voice to Family Guy, Kim Possible, Justice League UnlimitedOswald, and BoJack Horseman. But he's been busiest as a director, with a list of credits that includes episodes of Boy Meets World, Even Stevens, That's So Raven, Phil of the Future, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, Zoey 101, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Wizards of Waverly Place, Modern Family, and 2 Broke Girls.

More recently, Savage has stepped back in front of the cameras with starring roles in Fox's short-lived The Grinder and the Netflix series Friends from College. Expect to keep watching his work well into the future—and keep up with him on Twitter @thefredsavage, where he simply says: "I used to be an actor and then I became a director and now I kinda do both."
