Eugene Levy has appeared in over fifty motion pictures, seven of which having topped the one hundred million dollar mark. His box office success in films, like "Bringing Down the House", "Cheaper by the Dozen 2", "Father of the Bride Part II" and "Over the Hedge", has helped establish him as one of Hollywood's most popular comedic character actors. But it was his role of "Jim's Dad" in Universal's billion dollar "American Pie" franchise that cemented his reputation as being America's favorite dad.
Teaming up with Christopher Guest, Levy earned critical acclaim for co-writing and co-starring in "Best in Show", "Waiting for Guffman", "For Your Consideration" and "A Mighty Wind". His work in "A Mighty Wind" garnered him a Grammy Award and a New York Film Critics Circle Award, along with a Golden Globe nomination for Best in Show.
Levy started his career on the popular late night comedy series, "SCTV", where he won two Emmy Awards for writing. His early films include "Splash", "Club Paradise", "Armed and Dangerous" and "Multiplicity".
Recent projects include the hockey comedy, "Goon", opposite Jay Baruchel, Seann William Scott and Liev Schreiber, Ang Lee's "Taking Woodstock", his work as the voice of Albert Einstein in "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" and, alongside Nicolas Cage and Samuel L. Jackson, in the animated feature, "Astro Boy". Next up is "American Reunion", the 10th anniversary sequel in the "American Pie" franchise.
