    I had a huge crush on Dana Carvey when I was a kid, and to this day am wildly attracted to hilarious but down to earth guys like him.

    Why didn't Mike just call and ask him if he can use it? Gosh. They buddies on some level it sounds.

  • Thanny

    I don't get this at all. He did an impression of an actual person, then Myers based a character on another impression of that same person. You don't get to claim ownership of an impression. You're not creating something new. You're trying to mimic something already there. Anyone else can do the same.

    The fact is that everyone in Hollyweird loves Carvey and no one likes Myers because he was such a dick to work with!

    Rob Schneider credited Dana with having "the best Lorne Michaels impression". Which means everyone in that SNL circle likely knew of it. All the more sad Mike didn't give Dana more credit.

  • DP

    I love Howard’s ability to make a guest speak about things they otherwise wouldn’t. Like Dana is still in control but I don’t think anyone other than Howard could’ve gotten him to admit he had resentment for the dr evil character.

  • Solid Snake56

    Don’t know why Dana would get upset over one character in Austin powers, how would that bother him when he’s the master of disguise

      He would be dr evil and austins brother due to the twist at the end of the last movie. He should be a new villain in the next movie

    I don't think Mike asking for a "blessing" or acknowledging on talk shows that it was Dana's original idea would've hurt Mike or Austin Powers at all. That was Mike just trying to take the whole spotlight and being a jerk to his friend.

  • Psilocin Finite

    I know it sounds stupid, BUT!!!!! I always had an affinity for Dana. I felt he was genuinely funny. I never really liked Mike Myers. Go figure he's a cowardice impression thief that's willing to steal from a close friend so long as he gets paid. I think?

    Dana is holding back. He wants to tear into Mike and say what a prick he is, but he won't do it.

  • ITMeCE

    I think... maybe Mike was doing it because he loves Dana so much, that’s the way I see it..

  • chrisd5598

    The kids in the hall made first impression of lorne Michael's b4 Austin powers

  • bakeee

    wow, dana is charismatic as fuck. he states his disappointment but bring it back to how humble he was to be able to rub shoulders with certain ppl. fantastic dude.

  • DaHanG

    Had no idea Dr. Evil was Lorne, and a stolen impression. Feel bad for Dana and he knows he got shafted but doesn’t want drama either. It’s okay, Mike Is no Mencia.

    Mike Myers and Dana Carvey were such a huge part of my childhood. Love both of them. But in our house, my 2 brothers and I would always, if we had friends over, make sure that they had seen Masters of Disguise. It got a bad reputation, but you better believe we loved that one growing up.

  • krmaguire

    You made a LM impression in 1993, and a semi version of that was used in a movie by the guy who made you really famous...are you mad? Easy question to answer.

  • DasGoldenBoy

    Mark McKinney did a take on Lorne Michaels in "Brain Candy" as the CEO/Executive of the drug company behind the pseudo drug. That might have actually predated Austin Powers by a year or so. KITH did have ties to Lorne Michaels as he used some of them as writers for SNL and even executive produced their show that was on HBO in the 80's/90's.

    I’m actually glad he brought it up cause many people including myself who are not fanatics did not KMOW that Dr Evil is Lorne

    • Robert

      If you like weird comedy you should watch the Kids in the Hall movie "Brain Candy". One of the main characters in it is probably the original Lorne Michaels impression. Relevant scene here tr-my.net/watchvideo/video-wc4ND4Javf4.html

    Oh man, come on Mike, just do the honorable thing. Credits where it's due, Austin Powers was a great character but never forget your friends.

    Dr Evil is more than a voice, but I agree with Dana. It’s a bit late to still hold onto this but I also understand

    Dana Carveys' impression of Lauren Micheals, and the Mike Myers persona of Dr. Evil are two COMPLETELY different characters... No similarity in my opinion.

      Some of those comedians are Canadian and the next best thing. I know I lived in Longnewtondale, England and Westhills, Scotland so... Lots of Americans know what the UK is like.

  • Markles

    Hopefully Mike will reach out to an old friend and show some love.

  • W8ter5

    Wow, i just rewatched the series a couple days ago for the first time in years and now I see this. I had no clue Dana was the inspiration for dr.evil, interesting!

  • HeWentThattaway

    Go back and watch the old James Bond movies. You'll see that Meyers also borrowed heavily from those films' antagonists as well: Goldfinger, Specte, etc. I think Dr. Evil is an amalgamation of Dana's Michaels plus many other Bond evil characters.

    I had absolutely no idea about this. Stealing someone’s idea about anything is a dick move but comedians stealing from fellow comedians always seems to be a whole new level of scumbaggery. Why couldn’t he have just asked? It’s not difficult. I’m glad Dana Carvey’s been able to let it go. I obviously know it wouldn’t have been the sole reason for him seeing a shrink but it’s a shame he had to do it with the help of a therapist at all.

    How amazing would it have been if they just cast Dana as doctor evil in the first place? It would have made Dana and Mike like the new Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder.

    • Daniel Massey
      Daniel Massey

      That's probably what irked Dana more than anything. Why did Mike not just get Dana to do the role and he did Austin? People would have loved it.

  • thatphilwhiteguide

    Too bad Dana Carvey didnt make it as big as Mike Myers. I think hes funnier and has a more natural quirkier talent. Mike Myers is talented too but it seems somewhat forced.

    • grendlsma

      Carvey was a better performer, Myers was a better writer and had the kind of ideas that work well for movies. Carey did better impressions, Myers did more original characters.

  • Kat James

    You have something funny.... then you add Dana and it gets even funnier. Everytime. Very few comedians/artists can do that. He has been and will always be one of my favorites.

  • katoness

    So Myers got ideas from other actors to create Dr Evil. Hes an artist that's what he is supposed to do. Stern is such a shit stirrer.

  • kevvymetal666

    Mark McKinney's version of Lorne in Brain Candy (which came out before Austin Powers did) is superior to both Dana and Mike IMHO


    Well Carvey is not that shook up about it. Most people do Lorne the same. I think is pretty basic. Carvey is the best at it i think. Flattery really. Its an impression of an impression.

  • Ken Clark

    Interesting Myers felt comfortable moving forward with the character without so much as a mention or passing comment to Dana. Considering the character and/or mannerisms of Dr. Evil were essentially the creation of Dana, it doesn't say much about Myers. Personally, I couldn't fathom doing such a thing to anybody let alone a friend and professional colleague. I thought a backbone was necessary to stand upright but apparently, Meyers found a way. Dana showed class by not bagging on Myers in this interview. It has to be a bit of a needle in his side seeing his creation used by another individual who ultimately made millions as a result of it. Meyers apparently doesn't feel it's necessary to recognize Dana's creation. A not so funny punch line. Meyers continued silence would only make the needle grow larger from my perspective. Without Dana's incredibly brilliant comedic sense and his ability to pick up on the slightest detail of another to create a new character, we never would have met Dr. Evil. Recognition and a thank you would be good but a check for a million or two would be better.

  • ZyxthePest

    I think Dana subconsciously remembered the pinky thing from a Twilight Zone episode called Number 12 Looks Just Like you, where a scientist does it a lot.

    • Leelz247

      Did you not watch the clip? Myers took Carvey's artistic creation without asking or giving him credit.

  • Volvican

    But they ALL have a Lorne now. The pinkie thing is a step too far though.
