Very sad. He was super funny in the Austin Powers movies.

here's what Terry Gilliam posted to social media about Troyer

Verne.. you bastard! How could you do this? You've abandoned us!. The world is going to rat shit and you decide to piss off and join the choir invisible!!.. Just when we need you more than ever!!!
I was one of the lucky people that got to call Verne Troyer a friend. We worked together on Fear and Loathing and Doctor Parnassus. Verne was probably the most extraordinary person I ever met. He had an amazing spirit, an energy that filled the space of a 7 foot tall, 300 pound gorilla. He was fearless and crazy, sweet and vulnerable, and one of the few people I could accidentally trip over and wouldn't get beaten up too brutally. He had a well-earned temper, he didn't suffer fools, but he understood the big joke that life can be. He has left a massive hole in my universe.
Goodbye Verne, give the bastards hell wherever you are.
