Eugene Levy remembers the mockumentaries he made with Christopher Guest. The Canadian actor shared that he recently reunited with the cast of A mighty wind to celebrate its 20th anniversary and in a new interview, Levy says those movies are probably over.

“Our last was For your consideration in 2006,” Levy said The Guardian. “Our Mockumentaries – Chris [Guest] always hated the term “mockumentary” because we’re not kidding, it’s more affectionate than that – but they were getting a bit cookie-cutter in terms of the story.

Levy also shared that he is grateful to no longer be recognized for American pie after the success of Schitt’s Creek.

“All over the world.

People would bring me apple pie every time I walked into a restaurant or a wedding. Which is kind of funny, but it happened often.
