‘Gold’ glitters in Gotham mini-preem

Caine went over the top as the libidinous father

NEW YORK — The Gotham preem of “Austin Powers in Goldmember” may have been the Mini-Me version of the Hollywood extravaganza, but there was no lack of enthusiasm for the pic and its attending cast members, Michael Caine, Beyonce Knowles and Seth Green.

Trilogy newcomer Caine appreciated the freedom of his role as Austin’s libidinous, still-swinging father: “I am a very subtle actor, I like to think, but this (part) was over the top and I could go as far over the top as I wanted,” he said.

Post-screening, guests were shuttled to Barneys in a double-decker sightseeing bus, where they mingled among jewelry cases and designer purses, sipping the specially concocted Tanqueray 10 Shagadelic.

Also present at the after-hours soiree were Matthew Modine, Spike Lee, Katie Couric, James Lipton, Miss USA 2002 Shauntay Hinton, Carol Alt and Barneys’ creative director Simon Doonan, who helped dress the windows in honor of the film.
