Well, this came as a bit of a surprise to me. Entertainment Weekly has an item posted talking about the upcoming Mike Myers movie, The Love Guru, scenes from which recently screened at ShoWest. I didn’t think the trailers for this movie looked particularly funny, but I was planning on seeing it regardless, as I know John Oliver has a role in it and I’ve liked everything that he’s been involved with (of the stuff I’ve seen/read/heard, anyway).
But here’s the part of the EW.com item that surprised me (emphasis mine):
Mike Myers, Jessica Alba introduce ‘The Love Guru’ at ShoWest
Mar 12, 2008, 04:59 PM | by Joshua Rich
Mike Myers and (a very pregnant) Jessica Alba made a surprise appearance at ShoWest in Las Vegas on Tuesday night to present clips from their summer comedy The Love Guru. After some cutesy banter in which Myers claimed to be Alba’s baby daddy, the pair introduced four scenes from the film, which appears to be a return to the live-action shtick that Myers perfected before he turned into a jolly green animated ogre several years ago … (Also popping up: Stephen Colbert as a hockey announcer and erstwhile “Mini-Me” Verne Troyer.)
. . .
Well, I think that now I really need to make sure I see this film. I mean, Stephen’s in it? As a hockey announcer? I only wish it could be for an OHL game featuring the Saginaw Spirit and his namesake, Steagle Colbeagle the Eagle!
