Actor Verne Troyer, who appeared as “Mini-Me” in Austin Powers “The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “Goldmember” is dead.
Three weeks prior, he had been diagnosed as “suicidal” and “depressed”. Consequently, he was forcibly placed in a mental health care facility. His last YouTube video was on his worst “pet-peeves”. “I don’t like it when people pat me on the head.”
I recall a few years ago, the British newspaper known as the “Daily Mail” posted the above photo. After all, nothing says terrorism more than a 2 foot, 8 inch dwarf. What kind of insanity would cause them to do that?
In “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”, Verne was put in a cage and made monkey noises. Is it any wonder he ended up like this?
Now he’s not around anymore to be tormented and laughed at, until there is somebody else.
