Mike Myers – Artist if The Month 2022.

Michael John Myers is a Canadian actor, comedian, director, producer and screenwriter. In addition to Wayne’s World and Sprockets, Myers starred in the recurring sketches Lothar of the Hill People, Stuart Rankin, All Things Scottish, Lank Thompson, Middle-Aged Man, Simon, Coffee Talk with Linda Richman, Theatre Stories, Phillip the Hyper Hypo, and Scottish Soccer Hooligan Weekly. Myers’s last episode as a cast member aired on January 21, 1995 . Myers made his film debut when he and Dana Carvey adapted their Wayne’s World Saturday Night Live sketches into the feature Wayne’s World .

Myers played the title role and the villain in all three films as well as a henchman and another villain in the sequels. One of Myers’s rare non-comedic roles came in the film 54 , in which he portrayed Steve Rubell, proprietor of New York City’s famous 1970s disco nightclub Studio 54. The film was not critically or commercially successful, though Myers received some positive notice. In June 2000, Myers was sued by Universal Pictures for US$3.8 million for backing out of a contract to make a feature film based on his SNL character Dieter.

Myers said he refused to honor the US$20 million contract because he felt his script was not ready. Myers countersued and a settlement was reached after several months where Myers agreed to make another film with Universal. That film, The Cat in the Hat, was released in November 2003 and starred Myers as the title character. In 2001, Myers provided the voice of Shrek in the animated film of the same name, having taken over the role after the originally planned voice actor Chris Farley died in December 1997.

Myers received the MTV Generation Award in June 2007, making him the second Canadian to win the award . In 2008, Myers co-wrote, co-produced and starred in the poorly received The Love Guru, and in 2009 had a minor role as British general Ed Fenech in Quentin Tarantino‘s Inglourious Basterds. In 2018, after an eight-year hiatus from feature films, Myers appeared in supporting roles in Terminal and Bohemian Rhapsody.
