Troyer plans autobiography

The 40-year-old pint-sized star has lived a colourful life, starting his acting career as a stunt double for a nine-month-old baby before moving onto the hugely successful Austin Powers film franchise.

In 2008 he was involved in a sex tape scandal and earlier this year (09) he appeared in the celebrity version of Big Brother in the U.K. – and Troyer promises the tome will reveal plenty more sexy secrets.

He says, “I actually started writing the autobiography. I’ve got a few chapters done. There will be a lot of stories and a lot will probably involve the Playboy mansion – I’m a regular!”
