I think I`m the only actor in the history of film who got to slap Sam Jackson on the face and butt and lived to tell about it.
  • 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/I). 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).
  • 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.
  • Was supposed to host "Saturday Night Live" 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.
  • Is portrayed by Patrick Fischler in Gilda Radner: It's Always Something (2002) (TV).
  • 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).
