Verne Troyer -- Mini-Me, Giant Meat (Photos)

13 October 2016 12:48 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Verne Troyer is a small man with a huge appetite ... proven in stunning form by devouring a 32 oz steak.  Verne feasted on a Tomahawk Long Bone rib-eye steak bigger than his own head, right down to the bone that's about as long as his whole body. We're told he chowed down at The D casino hotel in Vegas -- where he got in a good arm workout afterward to burn off the meal. #TMZSlots Read »

29 September 2016 6:45 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Verne Troyer doesn't back down to bullies. In an exclusive video from his appearance on Oprah's Where Are They Now?, the actor opens up about being bullied as a child for being a little person. "There was one incident where there was a kid [who] called me the M-word," Troyer, 47, says in the clip. "That's just derogatory slang - the proper thing to say is either little person or dwarf." "So I basically jumped up, punched him in the nose and his nose started bleeding all over the place," the actor adds before revealing that he was sent to the principal's »

[[tmz:video id="0_1935hk1n"]] Mini-Me got a present that fits him to a T -- a real, functioning 8 ft long boat. Verne Troyer was gifted the whip after using it as a prop in a commercial for UK gaming company Bgo. After the shoot the company's CEO, Richard Skelhorn, shipped it to Verne as a thank you. This is no toy dinghy either -- the 160 pound mahogany ride has an electric motor, full nautical lighting and one of those awesome yacht horns. »

Verne Troyer -- Call Me Baby (Photos)

29 April 2016 10:49 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Verne Troyer is one bad baby -- at least that's what some angry parents assumed when he disguised himself as a vaping toddler out for a stroll. Verne and his "dad" -- YouTube star Roman Atwood -- seemed to piss off and fool plenty of passersby Thursday as they strolled up and down Hollywood Boulevard. We'd like to believe this is just how Verne normally gets around town -- but we're told the weird moment »

25 Must-See Films Starring Harry Potter Actors Coming In 2016

10 January 2016 11:37 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Until the sad day comes when someone decides to remake Harry Potter with an entirely new cast, there will be a magical aura around the actors who brought Jk Rowling’s iconic characters to life. As such, following what they do post-Harry Potter is a legitimate hobby. Potter watching, if you will.

Some of the cast obviously don’t make it, on account of the fact that they’re making terrible films. The chief offender is also the smallest.

Not content with making a fool of himself at every opportunity on British TV (including some God-awful advertising deals), Verne Troyer (who played Griphook in Philosopher’s Stone before he was later replaced by Warwick Davis for Deathly Hallows) is making the incredible sounding The 420 Movie: Mary & Jane. Don’t expect to see that here.

Other cast members and massive films just miss out by virtue of the calendar: »
