Mike Myers Says He Would 'Love' to Make More Austin Powers Films!

Mike Myers may be getting ready to play Austin Powers again!

The 53-year-old actor recently opened up about how his father influenced his famous 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,” Mike told THR. “So Austin Powers was a tribute to my father.”

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.

Mike then went on to he’s willing to suit up one more time to play Austin.

“I would love to do another, but you just have to see,” Mike said. “I was devastated by my father’s death. But to have that turn into something that makes people happy is unbelievably satisfying. It’s that kind of stuff you never get used to or get tired of.”
