Partial filmography

Tropes that could be applied to Myers' work

  • Acting for Two: Every one of the Austin Powers movies features Myers playing multiple roles.
  • Money, Dear Boy: Myers' well-publicized battle with Universal Pictures was a result of his attempts to invert this trope - he wanted out of the Sprockets movie because he felt that the script (which he himself wrote) was not good enough. The trope is played straight with The Cat in the Hat and The Love Guru - he was actually legally obligated to make the former as part of his settlement with Universal.
  • The Prima Donna: One reason why Myers ended up in the above-mentioned predicament in the first place is his notorious habit for burning bridges.
