In the new film The Love Guru, Verne Troyer finds himself once again working with his former Austin Powers co-star Mike Meyers. (Who can forget Dr. Evil and his side-kick Mini-Me?)

"We have a good chemistry together," Troyer tells OK!. "I’m not going to say it’s easy, but it’s fun when I’m working with him even when we’re not working."

 

The actor, who began his career in stuntwork before landing his breakthrough role in Austin Powers, says he’s blown away by his level of fame, especially by the way people seem to, "think they know you. I try to put on a hat and sunglasses but it doesn’t help. Immediately people think you’re him, or they question you, but most of them are like ‘You’re him!’"

 

Next up, the actor stars in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus which is, incidentally, Heath Ledger‘s last film. Troyer says he learned a lot from working with the actor.

"[Heath was] just such a great person, spiritually and a good friend, he says. "I still find it hard to talk about sometimes, but it was a great experience for me. I just wish it would’ve turned out better."
