Eugene Levy cries as Steve Martin and stars pay tribute in touching video




Levy was so touched by the editing – which featured Steve Martin, Martin Short and Andrea Martin as well as the cast of the comedy “Schitt’s Creek” – that he had tears in his eyes at the end.

In the recording, posted on Tuesday, Levy watches a series of pre-recorded messages, which the viewer can also see.

“First of all let me say how honored it is for me not to be here tonight,” said Steve Martin, who has worked with Levy in films such as “Father of the Bride. “And” Cheaper by the dozen 2 “.

“Being able to pay homage to yourself and not really having to do much or go anywhere, just stay home, it’s such a pleasure,” Martin added.

“Eugene is like family to me in that we often dine in total silence,” Short said.

Levy’s son Dan, who co-created “Schitt’s Creek” with his father, also had his own tribute. “You are very good at what you do and you set a bar for everyone you work with,” he said.

“You are incredibly professional, you are incredibly kind. And you’ve been such a role model to me, just in terms of how to be good, in general, and good at your job. ”

“Schitt’s Creek” ran for six seasons until its run ended earlier this year, and received over a dozen Emmy nominations.

Levy has also enjoyed a long film career, acting in the “American Pie” franchise, “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” and many more.

“You’re the best example of how to be a human and an actor and do it really well and be funny,” said Emily Hampshire, who played hotel clerk Stevie Budd on the show.

Levy laughs as the tributes keep pouring in, before getting visibly emotional towards the end.

“Look at this, are you happy now? He said, taking off his glasses to wipe away his tears.
