Verne Troyer who is famously known for his role as “Mini Me” in the Austin Powers franchise, fell ill during an appearance at the Heart of Texas Comic Con in Waco, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Witness say he was struggling to breath and was rushed to the hospital.
An Annie, an Osmond and now the star of an Uwe Boll movie. In a perfect capper to the audition portion of American Idol season 8, the judges gave a golden ticket last night to Jackie Tohn of Postal, the instant cult classic currently up for three Razzie Awards.
Tohn has appeared on everything from The Sopranos and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, but her biggest role to date has been Postal‘s Faith, the bad-ass barista caught in a battle between a religious hippie cult, Al Qaeda, and Verne Troyer. Children are massacred at a Nazi-themed amusement park, George W. Bush prances through a field with Osama Bin Laden, Dave Foley shows his penis, Troyer is raped by monkeys and director Boll takes a bullet in the crotch. It even opens with a 9/11 joke! We’re sure Paula would love it.
If Tohn makes it big on Idol, expect to see her face slapped on Postal‘s DVD cover alongside the terrorists, Troyer and star Zack Ward (Scott Farkus from A Christmas Story!). If you haven’t been lucky enough to see the most offensive movie of 2008, check out the trailer after the jump.
Tired of seeing the same handful of classy movies get award after award in redundant ceremony after redundant ceremony? Then be grateful for the Golden Raspberry Awards (or Razzies), which have celebrated the worst that Hollywood has to offer for almost thirty years. Check out the gallery to see who they decided to dis this time. Personally, we think The Spirit was robbed.
Cute? Disturbing? Harmless? Just plain wrong? Honestly, we think it could be all four. Mini-Me continues to entertain the British nation in the Big Brother house and we bet he’s wishing he’d asked for more than his rumored $200k fee. Dressed as a teddy bear and made to eat honey out of the jar – ah, the vagaries of fame.
Still, Verne is now odds on favorite to win the entire contest. He can look forward to a future of tabloid kiss-and-tells and dodgy presenting jobs over here. So all is well. [Photo: Channel 4]
Verne Troyer (oh, hell, let’s just call him Mini-Me as that’s how everyone keeps referring to him) is currently in the UK Big Brother house being, well, pretty normal really. We were expecting sex-crazed deviancy, but never mind. Instead, viewers yesterday were treated to a godawful rendition of Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross‘s “Endless Love” as Verne teamed up with British celeb Ulrika Jonsson to win a shopping task for the group.(Watch the video here).
Bizarre doesn’t even cover it, and poor Verne seems to give up all hope halfway through. Still, don’t worry America! According to the latest bookies’ odds, LaToya Jackson is now favorite to win. Your honor remains intact.
Verne Troyer is set to be a contestant on the hit British show Celebrity Big Brother (along with Coolio and LaToya Jackson), which means it’s a perfect time for his ex-wife to pop out of the woodwork and give an interview about his voracious sexual appetite. Playboy model Genevieve Gallen married her little love machine in January 2004 after they began dating in 2002. In true Hollywood style, Verne annulled their nuptials just a month after they sealed the deal, a decision Gallen attributes to him falling off the wagon. “Verne is the sweetest, most caring person in the world when he is sober,” Genevieve warns his future cast mates. “But if he starts drinking a whole different side comes out.”
We’re more interested in what their marathon bone sessions were like, so we’ll let Verne’s ex take it from here. If her details of their sex romps don’t get you hot, the pics of her posing in lingerie probably will! [NOTW]
- Sex all day long! “We could have sex up to 10 times in a single day. We’d do it for 45 minutes and he would just keep on going as I had orgasm after orgasm.”
- Knockin’ boots in downward-facing dog! “We had to be creative—but because of my yoga experience I could get into the right positions to make it work.”
- Oodles of role playin’! “I would dress up in my sexiest lingerie every day and try all sorts of role-play games. Sometimes I dressed as a prostitute, other times a cheerleader—and even a schoolgirl.”
- Verne is tiny all over. “Verne’s body is proportional all over, so he was smaller than I expected.”
- The actor was addicted to booty (and even worse – booze). “Verne was insatiable and there is definitely something in his personality that makes him easily addicted to things.”
- Like, really addicted. “Soon after I met him he almost drank himself to death. I heard he was in hospital and when I got there he was lying in bed covered in vomit and diarrhea.”

If it’s a day in the week ending in “y” there’s sure to be a reality show on somewhere in the UK, and we’re now imminently awaiting the Friday start of the new series of Celebrity Big Brother, where a flock of celebs get locked up in a purpose built house for a couple of weeks to ressucitate their dead careers show the world how loveable they really are. And – yes! – in addition to the British celebs that you will have never heard of in your life (Terry Christian! Ulrika Jonsson! Lucy Pinder!) are a couple of American faces, put there to liven up proceedings by looking appalled and confused throughout.
Apparently (although the program won’t confirm names till Friday) we are shortly to watch, around the clock, LaToya Jackson and Verne Troyer. Yep, the vertically-challenged actor with a sex tape and a taste for the ladies, and MJ’s lookalike sister will be beamed into our homes 24/7 should we want them to be. It’s everything we’ve ever dreamed of (almost) and we’re hoping to send you the choicest and most disgusting updates we can. Because we’re nice like that. [Photo: WireImage, Getty Images]
Verne Troyer can’t catch a break, man. First he got roped into that sex tape scandal, and now the latest hot chick he was caught wooing has been spotted cheating on him with skater and Jackass star, Wee Man. Verne and Canadian model Dominique Arganese were last seen together locking lips in Vegas, but spies over at Page Six reveal that they’ve seen pics of her getting it on with Jason “Wee Man” Acuna – the sexy skater and little person who, at four feet, is over 12 inches taller than Verne. We know very little about this little men-loving hottie, but Dominique’s skanky ways have already landed her a job in Vegas, performing in the up-and-coming Vegas show “Beacher’s Burlesque.” Her new boss Jeff Beacher said, “She’s one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen, and as soon as I heard she was sleeping with every midget in town, I knew she was perfect for my show.” [Photos: WireImage, GettyImages]
And if so, how does he reach her ass? Shouldn’t she hop off that stool and put her man on it instead? Verne Troyer is allegedly getting his tiny groove on with 22-year old model Dominique Arganese (pictured above), who hails from Montreal, Canada. The pair were spotted dining, drinking and making out all over Las Vegas together, which sounds like a way sexier show than Siegfried and Roy’s tiger party.
If this is in fact Verne’s new girl, it solidifies his rep not just as a player, but as a connoisseur pretty young things. His sex tape partner Renae Shrider is also 22 – do we see a small trend growing here?
Verne Troyer was spotted oogling a hot brunette at Prive nightclub last night in Las Vegas. Schawing!!!
