 Eugene Levy
Levy again collaborated with Guest on the script for the mockumentary about dog breeders "Best in Show." The hilarious film--which like most of Guest's works was also highly improvised by the actors--was a critical hit and Levy's portrayal of Gerald 'Gerry' Fleck, a man with (literally) two left feet, was one of the movie's highlights.
Levy had yet another watershed year in 2003 with his hysterically low-key and fully-fleshed character Mitch Cohen, a tuned-in, dropped-out folk singer gingerly tiptoeing toward mental health and a career comeback in Guest's outrageous "A Mighty Wind," which Levy also co-wrote.
Levy's next vehicle was the hackneyed, derivative action-buddy flick "The Man" (2005), which attempted to drive laughs by pairing Samuel L. Jackson's hard-edged cop with Levy's awkward dentist who's drawn into a crime scheme.
