Myers and fellow SNL cast member Dana Carvey got their own movie based on the Wayne character, named “Wayne’s World” (1992). “Wayne’s World,” which grossed $183 million worldwide, was a critical and commercial success. Myers took a break from acting after two additional films, “Wayne’s World 2” (1993) and “So I Married an Axe Murderer” (1993), and three years on “Saturday Night Live.”
“Wayne’s World” earned Mike $1 million in 1992. For the sequel, he received $3.5 million.

Mike spent $14.675 million for a four-bedroom condo in New York City’s Tribeca area in January 2017. He was dissatisfied with the property for some reason, and sold it four months later for $14 million. That’s a good way to spend $700,000.
