Before They Were Stars: Mike Myers in “John and Yoko: A Love Story”

A young, geeky-looking Mike Myers had one of his earliest roles with a brief uncredited bit part as a starstruck delivery boy in John and Yoko: A Love Story, a 1985 made-for-TV movie about the relationship between John Lennon and Yoko Ono. This movie actually has quite an interesting coincidence attached to it. An actor named Mark Lindsay Chapman was originally cast in the role of John Lennon, but was replaced shortly before filming when someone finally realized that he shared the same name as Lennon’s assassin, Mark David Chapman! But not to worry, Mark Lindsay Chapman would finally get the chance to play John Lennon for real 22 years later… in Chapter 27, the biopic which starred Jared Leto as Mark David Chapman!
