Tag: Austin Powers (1-2 of 2)

All local news reacts the same way to Mike Myers baby announcement -- VIDEO

Dear everybody: Your joke isn’t as funny — or original — as you think it is.

Conan O’Brien pointed out as much on his show last night, noting that every local news anchor in America made the exact same movie reference when noting that Mike Myers and his wife are expecting their second child. And no, it wasn’t a “mini me” remark.

In the 29 (!) clips compiled below, each newscaster’s enthusiasm for the bit varies wildly — from “I’ve never even seen Austin Powers and therefore have no idea what reference I’m making” to “Saturday Night Live, here I come!” Watch the Conan compilation below: READ FULL STORY

'Hart to Hart' plus 'Austin Powers' reunion: Rob Lowe poses with Robert Wagner -- PHOTO

EW’s Hart to Hart reunion didn’t take place atop a moving train or inside a dastardly villain’s weather chamber. Instead, we brought the Harts — Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers — to the set of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, where they were interviewed by eager Hart to Hart superfans Adam Scott and Amy Poehler. (Scott and Poehler re-created the detective romance’s opening credits in the last installment of Scott’s occasional Adult Swim special, The Greatest Event in Television History.)

During Wagner and Powers’ photoshoot, another Parks and Rec star stopped by to say hello: Rob Lowe, who played a younger version of Wagner’s evil Austin Powers character in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Both Number 2s — plus Powers; Stefanie, not Austin — gladly posed for the above group shot. Not pictured: The dog brought in to play Jonathan and Jennifer Hart’s beloved pup Freeway, who was a big hit on set with both the stars and the crew.

See more of Wagner, Powers, Scott, and Poehler on Facebook, where fans of EW’s page can unlock an exclusive video of Poehler and Scott seeing if Wagner and Powers remember some of the series’ craziest plotlines. And yes, the weather chamber comes up.
