Mike Myers may be ready to slip back into a familiar character.
The 53-year-old comedian reflected on the upcoming 20th anniversary of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and how his father's death inspired him to create the hilarious British spy character.
"After my dad died in 1991, I was taking stock of his influence on me as a person and his influence on me with comedy in general," Myers said in an interview with Hollywood Reporter, published on Thursday. "So Austin Powers was a tribute to my father, who [introduced me to] James Bond, Peter Sellers, The Beatles, The Goodies, Peter Cook and Dudley Moore."
Austin Powers debuted on May 2, 1997, the sequel, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, hit theaters in 1999, and was followed by 2002's Austin Powers: Gold Member, co-starring Beyonce. All three films were directed by Jay Roach.
