The 1992 comedy movie “Wayne’s World” featured a multi-talented artist, Mike Myers, who was both the writer and lead actor.
“Wayne’s World” received high praise and much success as the eighth-highest-grossing film of its year, all thanks to the stellar cast members who made it all happen. Here’s a look at how they have been.
Before starring in a film he wrote, Mike Meyers had a six-season stint on “Saturday Night Live,” where he probably developed much of his comedic spiels.

The actor reprised his lead role in “Wayne’s World 2,” and starred in other productions of the same genre, such as “So I Married an Axe Murderer,” “Austin Powers,” and “The Cat in the Hat.”
His most recent appearances are in the “Shrek” franchises, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” and the revival of “The Gong Show.”
