How Many
Characters Does
Mike Myers Play
In Netflix's The
Pentaverate?
By MELISSA LEMIEUX
In the Netflix series "The Pentaverate," Mike Myers becomes a self-contained cast, playing multiple roles. He plays so many parts that fans of the actor might be curious to know how many characters Myers ends up portraying to be throughout the show's six episodes.
Myers plays eight different parts, including Canadian journalist Ken Scarborough, Lord Lordington; the British member of the Pentaverate; Mishu Ivanov, an ex-Russian oligarch; and a fictionalized version of talent manager Shep Gordon. There’s also Bruce Baldwin, an Australian media magnate; and Jason Eccleston, whose death leaves a gap in the ranks.
Other Myers’ characters include Anthony Lansdowne, a conspiracy theorist; radio talk show host Rex Smith, and the comedian also voices, though doesn't physically portray, Shrek in a cameo. The series doubles the four roles Myers played in the "Austin Powers” franchise.
