  • Dr. Evil on “The Tonight Show,” claiming to have been “an ideas guy” in the Trump administration. Credit

At the end of Jimmy Fallon's monologue on Wednesday, the host said that he had secured an interview with the latest departing cabinet member from the White House, who turned out to be Myers in full grey-suited and white-powdered regalia, to Fallon's surprise. "Dr".

It's (somehow) been 16 years since the last Austin Powers movie, but Mike Myers has now brought his beloved character's nemesis back to life - as the latest departure from the Donald Trump administration, no less. What job, specifically, did Dr.

Evil also threw shade at Donald Trump Jr. Evil responded: 'Well, naturally I was going to be secretary of evil but Steve Bannon got that job'.

He then explained he was more of a behind-the-scenes "idea guy" and took responsibility for the wall, among other things. Evil was the one who came up with the idea of banishing Dreamers, and he replied, "No, Jimmy, even I have my limits".


Evil did, however, claimed credit for the whole Border Wall campaign, though he admitted had pitched a moat, filled with "spiky blowfish" which would be paid for by Alec Baldwin rather than Mexico.

Fallon started by asking Dr. "I'm evil, but I'm not a monster".

Dr. Evil did make at least one friend in Ben Carson, who's surprisingly still held onto his position as HUD Secretary, and who has things in common with Austin Powers' foe. Evil will no longer focus on making America great again like Trump's supporters aim to do. Evil also announced his own plan to run for President, including his own merchandise, which, if it really existed, is a hat I would buy. The former "SNL" star told Fallon that during down time on the set, he filmed a mini zombie apocalypse movie with his phone that turned into an unlikely commercial: "See 'Shrek 4'".
