TMZ is reporting that Verne died Saturday, according to a statement from his family. He was on some form of life support since being taken to the hospital earlier this month after cops got a report he was drunk and suicidal, and was treated for possible alcohol poisoning.
Verne famously played Mini Me in the Austin Powers movie series. There was talks of a 4th installment of the franchise but Mike Myers, who played both Powers AND his arch nemesis Dr. Evil, has not said if that will happen.
Verne was 49 years old and has struggled with alcoholism for years.
