Not to be outdone by Amazon’s vague announcement of a TV series written and directed by Woody Allen, HBO has also put talent first to return ‘SNL’ veteran Mike Myers to the spotlight. The erstwhile ‘Austin Powers’ (or more recently, Dr. Evil) has entered a two-year “TV exclusive” development deal with the pay-cable network, which…could really mean anything. To specifics!

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Amy Adams Sings and Dances Her Way Through Christmas And Dr. Evil

The narrative surrounding ‘SNL’ for the last year and a half is that it’s a show that’s “rebuilding.” And, yes, last season, that was true. But it’s weird: That narrative is still lingering even though, for people paying attention (I tend to pay attention), this 40th season has been very, very good. Last year, ‘SNL’ relied way too much on in-the-moment pop culture references (never a good sign). This season—including what we saw again during Saturday night’s Amy Adams-hosted episode—was all about great writing and great execution. It wasn’t quite as consistent as last week’s Martin Freeman-hosted show, but ‘SNL,’ right now, has a lot of momentum headed into its winter break. (When it returns with Kevin Hart, I really hope we see a sequel to ‘Z-Shirt.’ Please make this happen, Tim Robinson.)

So this is why we don't see Johnny Depp on stage very often (ever?) at awards shows. Last night at the Hollywood Film Awards, Depp introduced the documentary ‘Supermensch,’ about legendary talent manager Shep Gordon, and immediately made it pretty clear that he was not sober-minded. “That's the weirdest microphone I've ever seen in my life,” he slurs—except, you know, it's just a regular microphone.

These days 'SNL' movies are a bit few and far between (come on, 'MacGruber 2'!), but at least some of their success lives on with legendary classics like 'Wayne's World or 'The Blues Brothers.' There have been 11 'SNL' movies total over the course of the last 40 years, but how well do you think you know the late-night sketch comedy legend's cinematic history?

Released in 1997, 'Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery' starred former 'SNL' funny man Mike Myers as a British spy from the swinging '60s, awakened from a cryo-sleep to fight his old nemesis in the '90s, where he must hilariously adjust to modern life and culture. A satire of classic British spy films (notably the James Bond series), 'Austin Powers' was a smashing success, becoming an instant comedy classic and giving us two sequels. Seventeen years later, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to now.

Believe it or not, it has almost been 20 years since 'Wayne's World 2' came out. (That little piece of info just makes our bones creak.) A long time, yes, but it's never too late to reunite with old friends, which is why we're absolutely delighted to hear that Mike Myers is working on a 'Wayne's World 3' with the lovable public access hosts from Illinois.
Not only that, but Myers has apparently finished the first draft of the screenplay! Find out what it's about after the break. Shhwiiing!
