The 58-year-old actor voiced the loveable green ogre in four movies between 2001 and 2010, the latest being "Shrek Forever After," and the character has such a special place in his heart that he would be “thrilled” to play the role every year.



In an interview with GQ, Mike said: “I love playing Shrek.

“If I had to do one 'Shrek’ a year, I’d be thrilled.”

The 'Austin Powers’ star added how Shrek turned into “a dramatic role”.

He explained: “There’s an emotional center there."

You know the old joke: I wouldn’t want to be a member of a club that would have me as a member. I have always felt that way.

“The concept of going from a self-loathing ogre to a self-accepting ogre was meaningful to me.”

Mike also revealed that Shrek was originally meant to be Canadian, not Scottish.

He told the publication: “When I was approached to do Shrek, I originally did it as a Canadian and then I re-recorded it as Scottish because that seemed to be the most working class [accent].

“I also love the Scottish people." I have Scottish ancestry. I’m mostly English, but Liverpool is the pool of life between Scotland, England, and Ireland. ”

As for whether there will be another movie in the animated series, screenwriter Michael McCullers claimed in 2017 that a fifth instalment was in the works.

The scribe said at the time: “'Shrek Five’ is being developed."

I finished that script, which I really, really, really love.

It’s really personal for me. It’s got a pretty big reinvention behind it that I guess I can’t reveal. ”

Meanwhile, Mike got to reprise the role for his new Netflix series, "The Pentaverate."

The onion-loving ogre had a cameo in episode four.

Undercover Shrek saves Ken Scarborough (Mike) in Dubrovnik when he’s in Dubrovnik.

The swamp-dweller says: “I’ve got this one, laddy.”

He adds: “I’m the real ogre of Dubrovnik – now get out of my swamp!”
