Eugene Levy's Quotes

  • I can't do comedy that is cutting and vicious. If I knew I'd said something that was going to make someone feel bad, well, that supersedes everything.
  • [on his role in Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003)] I like playing villains - villains that aren't that bright, you know?..Okay, this is the guy. I'm thinking I can finally bring some mustaches out of the drawer.This is set in the mid-'80s. Glasses down to here. And the mustache is somewhere between [Adolf Hitler] and ]Groucho Marx].
  • One of the biggest misconceptions about me is that I'm a comedian, which I'm not. A comedian is someone who can stand up in front of an audience and make you laugh. I've never done stand-up and I never will. I'm a comic actor. My comedy comes through my characters.
  • I would love to work with Sir Anthony Hopkins. How and why that would happen in a comedy I'm not sure--why he would be dragged over to my side, or I'd be be dragged over to his side.
  • At the end of the day, even if my part is a bit goofy, the key thing is that I'm doing what I love to do, and that's to make people laugh.

Interesting Facts about Eugene Levy

  1. He was part of the group Northern Lights, which sang the song "Tears Are Not Enough," which was on the "We are the World" benefit album.
  2. Attended Westdale High School in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
  3. Part of the original, groundbreaking cast of Second City TV (1976)--otherwise known as SCTV. The Canadian TV Series was an comedic smash hit in the early 1980s and started the careers of Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Catherine O'Hara, and the late John Candy just to name a few. He played many roles but was probably best known as earnest but dimwitted Melonville news broadcaster Earl Camembert and schlock Las Vegas lounge comic Bobby Bittman.
  4. Was listed as a potential nominee on the 2005 Razzie Award nominating ballot. He was listed as a suggestion in the Worst Supporting Actor category for his performance in the film New York Minute (2004). However, he failed to receive a nomination. The very next year, though, he got a Worst Supporting Actor Razzie Nomination for his roles in Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005) and The Man (2005).
  5. Read for the part of Toby Ziegler on The West Wing (1999), but Richard Schiff eventually got the roll. According to producers, Levy came very close to getting the role, but they decided to cast Schiff for the part instead.
  6. Has worked with actor Steve Martin on four different films--Father of the Bride (1991), Father of the Bride Part II (1995), Bringing Down the House (2003) and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005).
  7. Was supposed to host Saturday Night Live (1975) with John Candy back in 1985 (he, Candy and Billy Crystal did a promo for it on SNL the week before it was supposed to have been aired), but that episode never happened, due to a writer's strike shortly after the promo was aired.
  8. He is the only actor to be in all eight of the "American Pie" movies.
  9. Is portrayed by Patrick Fischler in Gilda Radner: It's Always Something (2002).
  10. His son, Dan Levy, is a host on MTV Canada. His daughter, Sarah Levy, is an actress.
  11. Played an attorney in Armed and Dangerous (1986). There is a real-life attorney named Eugene Levy.
  12. Friends with John Candy, and Steve Martin.
  13. Son of Rebecca "Betty" (Kudlats) and Joseph "Joe" Levy, an automobile plant foreman. His father was born in Hamilton, to Bulgarian Sephardi Jewish parents, from Vidin. His mother was born in Glasgow, Scotland, to Polish Ashkenazi Jewish parents.
  14. His maternal uncle, Harold Kudlats, was a music promoter who brought rockabilly music to Canada.
  15. He waited for his son Dan Levy to come out to him as gay, but when he was just 18 years old Dan had come out to his mother because she was anxious to know if she had a queer child. As he was walking down the red carpet at the 2019 Canadian Screen Actors Awards he stated that he was "proud of his son and everything that he set out to accomplish." Schitt's Creek is successful because of its positive portrayal of the gay community as a whole. The way that the Levy clan had planned for the show to be.
  16. He insisted on raising his children Dan Levy and Sarah Levy in Toronto and vowed to never expose them to the way that kids are raised in Hollywood. Dan and Sarah both grew up with the same acting bug as their father. Dan is also into film production and writing.
  17. His first film job was as coffee boy on one of Ivan Reitman's student films.
  18. Award: Lifetime Achievement Award, 2020 Newport Beach Film Festival; Newport Beach, California.
  19. He and his son Dan Levy made history at the 72nd Emmy Awards. They became the first father/son duo to be nominated for and to win Emmys on the same night. Eugene last took home an Emmy award way back in 1982 when he and Catherine O'Hara wrote for SCTV Network 90: Moral Majority (1981).
  20. He was part of a joke on Saturday Night Live, with his son Dan Levy, where he appears in a Plexiglas isolation box after landing in New York. Dan seemed to be a bit confused when he realized that his dad had flown in from Los Angeles without knowing about the part about the Plexiglas isolation box.
