Verne Troyer is dead

Post by 16times » April 21st, 2018, 4:51 pm

Perennial convention guest Verne Troyer has died, after apparently being on life support for the past several days. He has always struggled with alcohol and I think that's what put him in the hospital.

When I met him at Chiller this past October, I was amazed how truly tiny he was. I was also impressed by his savvy....the guy took credit cards at his table. I'm glad I met him then, because that was going to be my last chance.

RIP to Mini Me.

Incidentally, he was my first ever celebrity photo op.

When and where did you get him?

I met him at 2003 World of Wheels but either the photo never took or I've lost it as I remember shaking his hand in the photo but I cant find it.
Next year 2004 was R. Lee Ermey. Both really nice guys.

I got him once at the auto show in 2003 (may have been World of Wheels I don't recall) and the second time at the airport coming in to guest host Monday Night RAW (as shown in the photo)

He actually had a paid appearance at a college bar right across the street from Hofstra around Halloween 2009. I didn't get a chance to meet him but I know a lot of people who got photo ops with him from that night.

I was a big fan of his work in Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shags Me. I also used to love the Surreal Life.

Very sad.

If you're such a "big fan" how come you didn't go to one of the many cons he did?

Because I'm not going to a convention just to meet Verne Troyer? I said I was a big fan of **one** movie he did. That's not enough to get me to pay admission into a con on top of whatever he charged.
