Can You Guess the Actor Underneath the Makeup Who Appeared on 'Jimmy Kimmel' Last Night?

This is not going to be fun for those of you who already know — or have seen this elsewhere — but to everyone else, can you guess who the actor in the guest’s chair is above with Will Arnett (who subbed for Jimmy Kimmel last night while he was at home with his newborn son?)

I’ll give you some hints:

1) He is the host of the new Gong Show.

2) He used to be an A-list star, but then he made a bunch of miserable flops, and he hasn’t really been seen in film since 2009’s Inglourious Basterds

3) His sense of humor had its time and place, but that time and place no longer exists, which unfortunately means that the character — Tommy Maitland — is insufferably unfunny, as you can see from this clip.

If you haven’t guessed by now, that’s Mike Myers.

No, really. It’s not obvious from looking at him, but the voice is a dead giveaway.

For Myers’ sake, I hope Gong Show is cancelled quickly, because it’s gotta be a pain in the ass to spend that much time in the make-up chair for so little payoff.
