See the Cast of ‘Wayne’s World 2′ Then and Now

Wayne's World 2
Paramount

Released in 1993, ‘Wayne’s World 2′ followed the continuing adventures of public-access TV hosts Wayne and Garth, characters originated on ‘SNL.’ Starring Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, the film follows our grungy heroes as they try to stage an epic rock concert called Waynestock. 20 years later, we take a look back at the cast and see what they’re up to now.

Now: Myers is known best for ‘Austin Powers’ (a character he also created) and voicing the big green ogre in the ‘Shrek’ films. He hasn’t appeared on the big screen since 2009′s ‘Inglourious Basterds,’ though he did voice Shrek in 2010′s ‘Shrek Forever After.’
