The actor who played Mini Me in the "Austin Powers" movies has died. The family of actor Verne Troyer announced his death Saturday. The 49-year-old stood at two-feet-eight-inches and found fame in the Mike Myers films. He reportedly struggled with alcoholism and depression and was in the hospital for related issues earlier this month. Troyer's family remembered him as a caring individual who just wanted to make people laugh. The announcement of his death came with a message about suicide and depression awareness. Troyer appeared in 50 films -- but will always be known as Mini Me in the 1999 movie "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and the 2002 sequel "Austin Powers in Goldmember." Myers released a statement saying "It is a sad day, but I hope he is in a better place."
