There are few father son duos more beloved than Dan and Eugene Levy or David and Johnny Rose, if you will. The Schitts Creek stars and co-creators love and tease each other IRL as much as their riches to rags TV counterparts did for six seasons and even though their show ended two years ago they are still keeping fans fed. Case in point? On Fathers Day the younger Levy took to social media to celebrate his dad and used a hilarious throwback photo to do it.Always loved this photo of my Dad holding me as a baby Dan captioned a still from Eugenes 2000 mockumentary Best in Show in which his character Gerry proudly hoists up a slightly confused dog. Father Day to one of the greats.
If you are a Schitts Creek superfan theres a good chance you are already familiar with Best in Show but if you have not seen it yet you are in for a dog treat. Eugene wrote the film with Christopher Guest and stars alongside Catherine O’Hara Moira Rose herself. They play Gerry and Cookie Fleck parents to a terrier Winky they hope will take home the top prize at a major dog show.As it turns out Best in Show was not the only piece of the elder Levys cinematic legacy being honored on Fathers Day. Jason who played the actors on screen son in the American Pie movies commented on the post too. Love that man he wrote. Happy Fathers Day Euge.
Of course Dans admiration for his father goes both ways. In 2020 Eugene praised his son in conversation with Bustle describing him as one of the top showrunners in the entertainment business right now. He also highlighted Dans work ethic on the historic sweeping show.
hrough every phase of Schitts Creek Eugene said Dan had a very strong sense as to what it was he wanted the show to look like and what he wanted it to sound like and what the tone of the show was going to be and what the message of the show would be. He certainly makes himself responsible to make these things happen. He does not go with the flow at all.Fortunately if you desperately need more Rose Levy family content Dans Fathers Day messages are the gift that keeps on giving. In a 2019 post he thanked for the brows and the laughs.
