'Celebrity House Hunting': Verne Troyer Uses His Space Creatively (VIDEO)

Verne Troyer was made famous for his diminutive size as Mini-Me in the "Austin Powers" series of films. Troyer stands at 2'8" tall. And once again, he kept going to his size for humor while shopping for a new home in Michigan on the latest episode of "Celebrity House Hunting" (Thu., 10 p.m. ET on Biography).

One of the unspoken pleasures of buying a new home is getting to tour a wide variety of potential homes and imagine creating a life there. For Verne Troyer, and little people like him, it's a very different kind of imagining. They have to picture how average-sized facilities and structures can either be adapted to suit them, or how they can otherwise use them creatively.

When faced with a wall of drawers in one of the homes, Troyer joked that he could steal away for a quick nap in those drawers. He pulled out one of the bottom ones and said, "I could just put a blanket in here and a pillow, and just shut it."

One of his friends quipped, "You could hide in that drawer if somebody breaks in. It's your panic room!"

When they shifted over to a massive jacuzzi tub, Troyer peeked inside and said he could not only bathe in it, but could also swim and relax. But no diving. "It's kind of shallow for that."
