Nigel has gone through many transformations over the years. Gay British park ranger, crazy bearded ex-hippie, and old fat scientist are just to name a few. His latest evolution, snow capped pseudo-lumberjack, made an appearance in the newest Monty Python skit. His earlobes are unfathomably big, and are used to pummel his foes and their children.
The Great Global Warming Swindle
The latest of the Austin Powers series, The Great Global Warming Swindle, was filmed, edited, directed, and published by of course, Nigel Calder. He can be seen in this movie kicking Al Gore's ass. He can be quoted as threatning to "shoop da woop on yo ass". This movie is based off of a Steven King work in which a dog catches super-AIDS and mutilates all of Middle Earth. All parts for the film were recast (even the dog), as Nigel Calder. There is also a fight scene between Chuck Norris and one of Nigel Calder's earlobes.
8 Mile Controversy
Nigel Calder was in a brief feud with Eminem because of a controversy surrounding 8-mile. The producers considered recasting "Rabbit" as Nigel Calder because of his superior experience with battle rapping and his British accent. The feud boiled over when Nigel was allegedly assaulted Eminem with an unloaded gun outside the club and Eminem backed down.
