"Mostly what I try to do is just stuff out of my house. I did a documentary for two years about Alice Cooper’s manager Shep Gordon called Supermensch. I’ve been developing stuff, doing small parts in stuff like Bohemian Rhapsody and that film Terminal with Margot Robbie," he continued. "Just stuff that didn’t keep me far away from my family, so yeah, we’ll see what happens."

"Verne was a fantastic human being," Mike said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on May 2. "I worked with him for a long time. He was a great comedian. I’ve always just wanted to make that point. As written, Mini-Me is, like, almost a prop. But he brought it up off the page, made it better than written, and we ended up just giving him more and more stuff to do. … I miss him."
