"Austin Powers" star Verne Troyer is hoping to get better acquainted with his fans by launching a new social networking website. The actor, who rose to fame as Mini Me in Mike Myers' films, has set up the interactive site "Looking Up" on his official page VerneTroyer.com - and is already busy uploading personal photos and videos for his followers to check out, and encouraging them to post their own snaps.
And Troyer is pleased he'll be able to use the website to keep in touch with fans. He tells Parade magazine, "I've launched a new website, VerneTroyer.com. It's linked to a social networking site called Looking Up, which is similar to Facebook. I get to chat with people that like my movies and just stay in touch with fans."
After appearing in "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and "Austin Powers in Goldmember", Verne Troyer had a role in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone". He recently appeared in Heath Ledger's latest film "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus", which has been dropped in theaters across the U.S. on December 25.
