A cameo that no one will see. Sounds appropriate.

If he's well received, he'll appear in three more Queen biopics, rehashing his popular lines until people are sick of him.

He has a game show where he's not quite himself.

Considering the Wayne's World movie made that song a #1 hit again and introduced a new generation of kids to Queen's music, I figured there would be at least the possibility of Wayne's World stock footage popping up in the movie.

So there were people in the last thread trying to defend this piece of shiat.

Do you need more proof it's going to be a steaming turd, or does Mike Myers finally prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt?

All it needs now is Adam Sandler singing the Hanukkah Song.

I'm here to read for the part of 'cheeky monkey'.

I hope he wears a fake nose, because that is when he is at the top of his acting craft.
 
2017-09-12 09:26:42 AM  
You guys just wait.  This is going to be his breakout role, like Paul Giamatti in Howard Stern's Private Parts.

Huh, I had no idea, because I've just seen flashes of that show as I work the clicker like it's 1983. Save for the appalling wrongness of the presentation, as in "has that guy been in a fire and did it burn his accent?"

I want to see Fat Bastard as Freddie Mercury.

He should cameo as Steve Rubell.

I thoroughly enjoyed the new Gong Show. I thought Myers was hilarious on it, and said some absolutely hysterical filthy things on the show. I hope they make more episodes.

Y'all seem to forget what a spectacular film "So I Married An Axe Murderer" was......

The Love Guru. That is all.

I can understand being tired of this movie's saga, even Q+AL, but Queen itself? Never. So much material most people will never even hear.

Be a good chap and like a random Mike Myers cameo, will you?

Surprised at all the Mike Meyers hate. What don't I know that I should hate about him?

This is Fark. Anything that is or was popular with mainstream audiences is hated.

Honestly, I'm kinda over Bohemian Rhapsody.  If you're going to mention Queen at least mention the stuff that isn't oversaturated on every single rock station across the world.  Baby Driver at least had the decency to find another Queen song to play to great effect.

Also, one thing that I realize now:  Mike Myers really flamed out in the last decade, didn't he?  I mean it was that and the Austin Powers flicks but that's it.  I guess you could count Shrek, but meh.

He's been laying pretty low since Love Guru bombed.
However, If I had writing and producing royalties coming in on a billion dollar franchise on top of residuals and merchandise percentages from a megahit kids franchise, I wouldn't be rushing to get back to work, either.

He's a nightmare to work with, that's why Hollywood has been avoiding him.

Maybe an older Robert Taylor?

I remember hearing Myers was going to produce a Freddie Mercury movie but it fell apart. Then Sasha Cohen. I hope Singer can make a good movie out of this, but I'm not betting on it.

Shrek's III, IV and V. and however many else exist.
The Love Guru.
The Cat in the Hat.
The diarrhea drinking scene in Goldmember.

I think that covers it.
