Mike Myers returned to “Saturday Night Live” as Dr. Evil from his Austin Powers movies to chastise North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and Sony Pictures for, well, giving evil a bad name. Myers, that is, Dr. Evil commandeered the cold open.
The show opened with a called “A Very Somber Christmas With Sam Smith.” Actually, Taran Killam was parodying the English singer when Dr. Evil crashed the set.
Sitting in his familiar lair, Dr. Evil laid into North Korea for its puny “act of war.”
“You’re one of the most evil countries in the world, and your act of war is to kill a movie?” he mocked.
He also stuck it to Sony Pictures. “They haven’t had a hit since The Walkman,” he sneered.
Sony, of course, has been in the news for the past 10 days over a major hack of its computer system that revealed hundreds of internal documents and emails. Among them were emails written by Sony Co-Chairman Amy Pascal, criticizing a number of actors, including Angelina Jolie.
“I mean what the F people. It’s just so pathetic to see you two fight over a silly comedy. It’s like watching two bald men fight over a comb….who cares?”
