Dr. Evil Is Back!

December 21st, 2014 10:01am EST
Mike Myers as Dr. Evil
Mike Myers made a surprise appearance on "Saturday Night Live" this week, bringing back his legendary Austin Powers villain, Dr. Evil, for the show's cold open segment.

The bit started out with British singer Sam Smith's Christmas special, "A Very Somber Christmas With Sam Smith" (during which SNL's Taran Killam nailed his impression of the British crooner), when the show was interrupted by Dr. Evil, who weighed in on the conflict between North Korea and Sony Pictures over the release of the latter's latest film "The Interview."

"Hello, I'm Dr. Evil. I've preempted this program because I'...

The biggest and most memorable event of 1963 was the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, its 50th anniversary will be marked on November 22. The civil rights movement was in full swing as Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his "I have a dream" speech and the Vietnam conflict had begun. Gas was 29 cents a gallon and the average cost for a new home was $12,560.

Mike Myers thrilled fans in London on Sunday by making a surprise appearance at the comedy club where he started his career.

Hot Legs: Cameron Diaz At The U.K. Premiere Of 'Knight And Day'

Cameron Diaz
Cameron Diaz easily manages to make simple dresses look sexy. The smiling actress showed up to the "Knight and Day" U.K. premiere on Thursday in a silver sequined shift dress.

The star undergoes rigorous exercise routines to put on weight because she'd become "really skinny" if she stopped working out. She admits her toned torso is not down to genetics, insisting she has to work hard to ensure she doesn't fall below a healthy weight.

Meanwhile, Mike Myers and Diaz - who voice the title character and Princess Fiona in the "Shrek" films - are not convinced the franchise is over for good.

Mike Myers and Cameron Diaz have given fans of the Shrek movie franchise a glimmer of hope - hinting there may be a future for the lovable ogre after all.

The fourth film in the animated series, Shrek Forever After, hit cinemas earlier this year and was billed as 'The Final Chapter'. However, Myers and Diaz - who voice the title character and Princess Fiona respectively - are still not convinced the franchise is over for good.

Cameron Diaz isn't ready to become a mother - because she doesn't want to "feel guilty" about working away from home on a movie set.

The "Shrek Forever After" star, who is currently single, insists she's too busy focusing on her career to contemplate raising a family.

She tells Britain's Vogue magazine, "You know how you have those moments of feeling dissatisfied and you think, 'What would make my life better?' Well, I've yet to go, 'A-ha, that's it: a child!' I'm not saying I don't want them, but right now I see how torn up parents get when they're away from their kids, how guilty they f...

The photographer alleges McAdam, 40, turned on him and hit him on the head with his stick, while Myers fled the scene. He claims to have needed five stitches to treat a wound above his right eye.

Before Shrek, Dreamworks was having trouble competing with the powerhouse that was Pixar. The commercial and critical success of Shrek was just the boost they needed, and it is coming to an end this weekend with the supposed final film Shrek Forever After. Now it may be that this is hardly the last time anyone will see their favorite characters, like Donkey, Fiona, the big man himself Shrek, or Puss in Boots. There's other ways the media can utilize the popular tale, but for now, it looks like the movie series will be done after this. Let's take a look back at some of the best and worst mom...

Can 'MacGruber' Break The SNL Movie Curse?

May 20th, 2010 9:00am EDT
Can MacGruber Break The SNL Movie Curse
Of all the recent "Saturday Night Live" recurring characters, MacGruber seemed the least likely to land his own feature film. After all, the skit spends about 15 seconds with the action hero before he's blown to smithereens.

However, star Will Forte imagined greater things for our mulleted man of action, and he convinced Lorne Michaels and the powers that be to turn the skit into a 90-minute film that opens Friday.

"MacGruber" is getting solid buzz on the eve of its opening, but has to overcome the stigma that SNL films can't cut it both from a quality and financial standpoint. There ha...

Don't Ask The 'Shrek' Stars To Do Voices For Your Kids

The "Shrek" movies are known for the recognizable voices of their celebrity stars as much as they are for their touching, irreverent fairy tales. By the time they got to do "Shrek Forever After," the actors had some war stories of meeting families and having to turn it on in public.

There’s no separating Antonio Banderas from Puss in Boots.

“I remember a couple of times where, a woman came to me once in a supermarket with her kid who was like five years old and said to me, ‘Look! Look! It’s Puss in Boots!,’” Banderas said. “The kid looks up to me and says, ‘No mom, that’s Zorro.’ You don...

Trailer Talk: This Week In Movies - 'Shrek Forever After,' 'MacGruber,' & More

MacGruber
A lot of other critics have blasted Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood,” but honestly I found it to be pretty interesting. It is slightly long winded and its action scenes are a bit frenetic, however it dares to be different in how it approaches the Robin Hood tale which I appreciate.

As a narrative "Robin Hood" operates like a prequel, covering the events leading to Robin’s branding as an outlaw. This Robin is serious, more like a solider commanding his friends in battle, than the lighthearted rogue whose archery and skills with a sword are so well known in the legend. While he believes in eq...

Mike Myers can't wait to revive his Austin Powers alter ego for another movie - but he's struggling to assemble his cast for production.

The funnyman announced last year he had begun work on another sequel following the success of the first three installments, which grossed $676 million at the worldwide box office.

Myers insists the project is still "on track" but admits he has run into problems recruiting stars for the next movie.

He tells MTV News, "Things are on track. It's hard to keep a... team together and I'm very happy how insanely well it's gone. Then it gets hard to get ...

(500) Days of Summer was one of the best movies of the year. The Golden Globe nominated film will be released on DVD on December 22nd

, and for those who haven't seen it - we recommend you check it out.

We especially love the musical scene where Joseph Gordon-Levitt charms the audience with his dance moves to Hall & Oates "You Make My Dreams Come True." His character, Tom, falls head over heels in love with Zooey Deschanel's character, Summer, and what better way to express his love than in song? When he thinks about her he wants to sing and dance and everyone else is as happy as he is...

Fantastic 'Inglourious Basterds' Out On Blu-ray & DVD Dec. 15

Cinematic icon and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino helms one of the most audaciously inventive, eagerly-anticipated films of the year, "Inglourious Basterds", coming to Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD on December 15, 2009 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

Starring Academy Award nominee Brad Pitt in an audacious, adrenaline-packed, high-octane World War II revenge fantasy, "Inglourious Basterds" has been hailed as one of Tarantino's most stylish and entertaining films to date.

From its deceptively bucolic opening scenes to its incendiary final moments, "Inglourious Basterds" delivers a h...

Inglourious Basterds
This weekend "500 Days of Summer" became my favorite movie of the season. The film's non-linear style of romantic storytelling works incredibly well. Jumping back and forth through various days in Tom and Summer's relationship is a fascinating way to get to know the couple.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Tom with an awkward charm that other lovesick fools can identify with. Much like a typical heartbroken lover, Tom finds himself bogged down remembering the positive parts of his relationship but forgetting the trials and tribulations.

While the film is not a typical love story filled w...

Best Celebrity Voice Acting Roles

June 12th, 2009 9:22am EDT
Kung Fu Panda
Voice acting is a much more lucrative business than one might imagine, with the actors in question providing their voice for animated movies, video games, television shows, voice overs, and anything else that requires a voice but no face. Some actors do only that kind of work, giving themselves a certain amount of fame in that industry, such as "The Simpsons" cast.

Everything changed when voice acting became a business not only for unknowns, but also an attractive fad for celebrities who wanted to broaden their horizons ... or make a movie "for the kids." Now it seems that no animated...

Yes, it seems "American Idol" has turned into a cavalcade of stars. What started as an amateur singing competition has quickly become the place for all the famous people to play and plug.

We started with the cast of "Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian" plugging their new movie even before the credits. Funny how the show's desk being donated to ...
