His box office success in films like Bringing Down the House, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Father of the Bride 2 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, Sean William Scott and Liev Schreiber, Ang Lee's Taking Woodstock, his work as the voice of Albert Einstein in Night at the Museum 2: 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.
