His beginnings in show biz date back to 1994, when he was getting his start as a stunt double for a nine-month-old child in the comedy Baby's Day Out. Troyer went on to put his size and talents to use performing stunts in the 1996 comedies Dunston Checks In, and playing an alien in 1997 film, Men In Black. Verne Troyer got a rather average role in the atypical Terry Gilliam feature Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), playing a waiter.

After a successful first run, he reprized the role of "Mini Me", in the 2002 Austin Powers in Goldmember, after which he appeared in feature films like Pauly Shore is Dead (2003), The Love Guru (2007) and Keith Lemon: The Film (2012). Thanks to his silent but expressive comedic performance, Verne Troyer has won good reviews from both critics and a legion of fans. More recently, he let the cameras into his home when he appeared in the fourth season of the ABC reality series, Celebrity Wife Swap. In his episode, he traded lives with retired NFL player, Hines Ward.
