When it comes to cats in the movies, who could forget Dr. Evil's feline sidekick, Mr. Bigglesworth? Certainly not you. Because that would make Dr. Evil angry, which would upset Mr. Bigglesworth. And you know what happens when Mr. Bigglesworth gets upset.
Mr. Big's real name? Ted Nudegent. As Austin Powers International Man of Mystery was Ted's first film gig, he had to be trained to sit still while Mike Myers as Dr. Evil screamed, evaluated fembots and performed other parts of his schtick, for up to 45 minutes at a time. Nudegent's trainer Tammy Maples told the Philadelphia Daily News.
"It helped that he had been a show cat and was used to having lots of people around. And also that he just loved Mike Myers. Mike always took time to talk to Ted. It wasn't just 'sit down, roll cameras.'"
