Watch: Scammer Is Shaving Kittens and Selling Them as Expensive, Exotic Hairless Cats in Canada

6 December 2016 10:19 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Anyone remember Mr. Bigglesworth? Dr. Evil’s hairless cat was the breakout star of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and in real life hairless cats are a very real — and very prized — breed. They’re called Sphynx cats, and purebreds can go for over $1,000.

And given that all you’d have to do to create a bootleg Sphynx is shave a regular cat, it’s a little surprising this is the first we’ve heard of this hoax, but it doesn’t make it any less weird.

Shayla Bastarche, of Alberta, Canada, said she saw a Craigslist ad selling »

Austin Powers director Jay Roach on the potential future of the franchise

26 September 2016 1:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Next year will mark 20 years since the release of Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and director Jay Roach has been speaking to Simon Thompson of Forbes about the anniversary of the hit spy series, and whether he and star Mike Myers have any plans to revisit the franchise.

“We are always talking about how we can keep it going,” said Roach, who directed all three of the movies. “We have talked about different ways for Austin Powers to come back but we’ve never really clicked on anything that just seemed like it absolutely had to be done. We wouldn’t just want to do something that just exploited the whole brand. It would be fun to come up with something to connect back but I have no idea what that would be, I really don’t. There are so many different ways you could go and it might »

‘Bad Moms’ Producer Suzanne Todd: Why the Veteran Producer Likes Staying Outside the Box

2 August 2016 6:38 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Many in Hollywood pair Suzanne Todd with her younger sister and producing partner Jennifer, long known as Team Todd. They produced a raft of movies together, many at freewheeling New Line Cinema, including teen coming-of-age classic “Now and Then” and Mike Meyers’ Austin Powers franchise. They also put on the map Christopher Nolan (“Memento”) and Ben Younger (“Boiler Room”). And while they both produced Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” with Joe Roth at Disney, for its sequel “Through the Looking Glass,” Jennifer was busy running Pearl Street Films, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s production company, while Suzanne carried on with the “Alice” sequel. And so she went solo on “Bad Moms,” which Stx opened well this weekend.

Will Austin Powers 4 Ever Happen? Here's What The Director Says

20 May 2016 12:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In this age of reboots, remakes, and revivals, no stone is left unturned lately. We’ve got TV versions of Lethal Weapon and Exorcist on their way, as well as the incredibly controversial Ghostbusters reboot. With all these properties from our childhoods brought back into the limelight, one question everybody seems to have is where the hell is Austin Powers 4? Okay, I don’t think that many people have said that, except for Mike Myers and director Jay Roach. Jay Roach, in particular, has voiced his optimism about a potential return to the International Man of Mystery.   Jay Roach got his start directing Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery, and he directed both of its sequels. Roach has since moved on and produced films such as Trumbo, but that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten his roots. Roach recently appeared on Larry King Now, where »

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Recap: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

25 April 2016 7:56 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Never underestimate the power of Dancing With the Stars.

In the course of just one episode, the ABC reality competition has taken nine iconic dances from pop culture and ensured that we will never be able to look at them the same way again — some for the better, and others for much, much worse.

On one hand, future listenings of ‘N Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” will bring me right back to Wanyá Morris and Lindsay Arnold’s ultra-badass jazz routine set to the 2000 pop jam. And on the other, anytime I spot a rerun of Slumdog Millionaire on basic cable, »
