Mike Myers has expressed his keen interest in reprising his multiple roles for “Austin Powers 4.”

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the former “Saturday Night Live” comedian admitted that he was still interested in playing Powers, his nemesis Dr. Evil, and Fat Bastard one more time.


“I would love to do another, but you just have to see,” Myers said, citing that Austin Powers was a tribute to his late father and that “Austin Powers” was a humorous archetype of British spy flicks in the ’60s.


The film’s director, Jay Roach, also expressed his interest in wheeling a sequel to “Austin Powers in Goldmember,” the film’s third franchise screened in 2002. The first two blockbusters were “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery” in 1997 and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” in 1999.

“We have talked about [making a fourth movie] for 15 years. We have also always said we don’t want to do it unless we came up with something that lived up to the concepts in our mind,” Roach elucidated. “Until Mike feels like he has a concept that earns a fourth, it won’t happen. But if it did, we have all agreed that we would be delighted to get back into it.”

Despite his father’s passing and having a laid-back Hollywood career since voicing “Shrek,” Myers, 53, wishes to translate his personal catastrophes into comedy. “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,” he said.  Gianna Francesca Catolico /ra
