Biography:
 
A gifted comic actor who also won acclaim as a writer and director, Eugene Levy was born on 17 December 1946, in Hamilton, Ontario. After graduating from Westdale High School, he enrolled in McMaster University where he studied film.

Levy made his film debut in the horror Cannibal Girls (1970). By the mid ‘80s, Levy had become a familiar face on both television and in movies, even though almost in comic supporting roles. In 1989, he began working behind the camera again, directing a special for his old partner Martin Short, and in 1992, he made his film directorial debut in the comedy Once Upon a Crime.

In 1996, Levy scored a bigger breakthrough when he and Christopher Guest began writing a screenplay for the mockumentary Waiting for Guffman, a parody about a small town theater troupe. It became a surprise hit and gave Levy a comic role as stage struck dentist Allan Pearl.

In 1999, Levy won another high-profile success with the blockbuster hit American Pie, in which he played the understanding but terminally non hip father of hormonally charged teenager Jim, played by Jason Biggs. He reprised the role in the sequel American Pie 2 (2001) and again in American Wedding (2003).

Eugene Levy and Christopher Guest teamed up again in 2000 for the comedy Best in Show, for which they received a Best Screenplay nomination from the Writers Guild of America. Levy and Guest also co wrote and starred in another 2003 mockumentary, A Mighty Wind, a parody about '60s folk musicians who reunite for a tribute concert several years after their glory days.
