The Memorable Cast of 2002’s “Austin Powers in Goldmember”

Undoubtedly one of the top-grossing films in 2002, Austin Powers in Goldmember, the third movie in the Austin Powers movie franchise, grossed $296.7 million on a budget of $63 million. At a time when spy movies like James Bond were becoming overly cliché, the Austin Powers movies series and its parody theme was a good comedy relief.

If you were quite familiar with some James Bond movie plots like Goldfinger, The Man with the Golden Gun, You Only Live Twice, and The Spy Who Loved Me, it’s easy to see a semblance in Goldmember. However, a significant aspect of the movie’s success is its star-studded cast.
