Mike Myers Returns as Dr. Evil to Mock North Korea and the Sony Hacks

SNL’s last episode of 2014, hosted by Amy Adams, yielded plenty of comic delights, but perhaps its best moment was the very first sketch.

In the episode’s cold open, Mike Myers reprised his beloved Dr. Evil character, the finger-gnawing, kitten-petting villain from the Austin Powers movies. The occasion? North Korea’s alleged hack of Sony, which is giving “evil organizations a bad name.” Myers also works in some funny self-deprecation, noting that if North Korea really wants “to put a bomb in a theater, do what I did—put in The Love Guru.”
