'The Surreal Life 4' premiere may feature 'Mini Me's public urination
UPI News Service, 01/07/2005
Network execs are debating whether to leave in a shot of a urinating actor in Sunday's "The Surreal Life" on VH1.
Two-thirds of the way through the show, a nude Verne Troyer, the pint-size actor who plays Mini Me in the "Austin Powers" movies, rides a scooter into a room and, oblivious to his surroundings or the cameras, promptly relieves himself in a corner.
A copy of the segment was sent to critics, the New York Daily News said Friday.
"We're still sort of playing with how that looks on television," VH1 executive Jeff Olde said. "That may come out."
"The Surreal Life" is a reality show that puts a group of celebrities in a home in California for two weeks where they live, eat and play.
