Kind of bummed about this one ’cause Verne Troyer was awesome. Yes, like most I’ve first heard about him through the two Austin Powers movie that he starred in alongside with Mike Myers. Verne wasn’t in the first Austin Powers movie but he was in the 2nd and third. I watched all 3 Austin Powers movies and liked all 3 of them. I mostly watch Action and horror movies but sometimes I like a good comedy film.
Verne has starred in other movies besides Austin Powers. He was a stunt man for some films and had small roles in other movies like Harry Potter and Men In Black. Verne was also a big WWE fan as he was a RAW General Manager guest host once in which he did a good job at (see video below).
Even though the guy was an alcoholic for most of his life and had loads of personal problems in his private life, he seemed like a really good dude publicly, though. He seemed like a nice guy for sure even if I never met him.
No cause of death has been announced yet but I’m sure we’ll hear something soon. It was probably alcohol related or suicide. Lot of people speculating suicide but maybe it was something else? Maybe Verne had too much to drink one night and given by the size of his body, his body couldn’t take it. We’ll know what happened soon.
RIP Verne. He was a good one.
