Eugene Levy has established himself as one of the most successful comedic character actors in film and television. He has appeared in over sixty motion pictures, eight of which have broken the $100 million dollar mark. Levy launched his career on the hit television series "SCTV," starring alongside fellow Second City alumni Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Andrea Martin and John Candy, and winning two Emmy Awards for writing. He has co-starred in the box office hits "Splash," "American Pie," "American Pie 2," "American Wedding," "Bringing Down The House," "Cheaper By The Dozen 2," and "Father OF The Bride 2." Levy co-wrote with Christopher Guest and co-starred in "Waiting For Guffman," "Best In Show," "A Mighty Wind," and "For Your Consideration," winning a Grammy Award and the New York Film Critics Circle Award for "A Mighty Wind."
