British actor Michael Caine is loving being part of the latest Austin Powers movie - because he gets to dress just like the '60s spoof spy.
Caine plays Mike Myers' lead character's father Nigel Powers in the third instalment of the hit film franchise, and he's having fun dressing up in his wacky attire.
He says, "I turn out to be the greatest secret agent in the world, who taught him everything he knows. The assumption is he took after his father. So I have the wig, the glasses, the teeth, and the same attitude." But Caine is quick to point out there isn't a mother for his dear movie son, explaining, "We never mention her - I think there's some doubt as to who the mother was. "
