Mini-me visits Israel
Verne Troyer -- the American actor who played Mini-Me in the film franchise -- arrived in Israel Sunday for a photo shoot.
The pint-sized (2 ft 8 inches) personality arrived in Israel to take part in a photo shoot on behalf of TNT Kids -- the popular clothing line owned by local fashion giant Honigman -- with almost 60 stores around the country.
"A lot of my fan base is made up of kids, so I thought it would be cool to come and promote the line. I'll be wearing some of the clothes, too, " said the 42-year-old Troyer Tuesday from his Los Angeles home before he set out for the Holy Land.
Troyer who may be small in size due to cartilage-hair hypoplasia dwarfism is certainly huge in face recognition. Besides his high profile Mini-me roles the Michigan native has appeared in scores of films including Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and the Love Guru.
