Wiki

Eugene Levy (born December 17, 1946) is a Canadian actor, television director, producer, musician and writer. He is known for his work in Canadian television series, American movies and television movies. He is the only person to star all of the American Pie movies (American Pie, American Pie 2, American Wedding, Band Camp, The Naked Mile, Beta House, and The Book of Love).

Levy was born to a Jewish family in Hamilton, Ontario. His father was a foreman in an automobile plant. He went to Westdale Secondary School, and graduated from McMaster University in 1969. He was vice president of the McMaster Film Board, a student film group where he met moviemaker Ivan Reitman.

An alumnus of both Second City Toronto and the sketch comedy series SCTV, Levy often plays unusual supporting characters with nerdish streaks. Perhaps his best known role on SCTV was as the dimwitted Earl Camembert, a news anchor for the "SCTV News" and a parody of real-life Canadian newsman Earl Cameron. Celebrities impersonated by Levy on SCTV include: Perry Como, Ricardo Montalban, Alex Trebek, Sean Connery, Howard Cosell, Henry Kissinger, Menachem Begin, Bud Abbott, Milton Berle, John Charles Daly, Gene Shalit, Jack Carter, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Tony Dow, James Caan, Lorne Greene, Rex Reed, Ralph Young (of Sandler and Young), F. Lee Bailey, Ernest Borgnine, former Ontario chief coroner Dr. Morton Schulman, Norman Mailer, Neil Sedaka and Howard McNear as “Floyd the Barber”.
