Troyer joined Mike Myers once again on the big screen in the 2008 star-studded comedy The Love Guru. In 2009 Troyer displayed his dramatic chops in the twice Oscar nominated film, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus starring alongside Christopher Plummer, Heath Ledger, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, and Jude Law.
