Mike Myers – The Cat in the Hat
After he made Austin Powers in Goldmember, Universal Studios attempted to get him to appear in a movie based on an old SNL character, Dieter. He did not like the script and declined. After his decline Universal decided to throw a $3.8 million lawsuit which led to Myers filing a countersuit. The countersuit involved an agreement that he would make a different film for them which ended up being The Cat in The Hat. The movie did not translate into a successful film.
