Are we having a bad day, honey? Hopefully this will bring even some meagre improvement: haver of nationally-treasured eyebrows, Eugene Levy, has been announced as the next recipient of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Emmy-winning actor, producer and writer will be honoured with the 2,773rd star on Hollywood Boulevard with a ceremonial unveiling emceed by Steve Nissen on March 8.

Although the Canadian has perhaps become best-known internationally for his work on beloved sitcom Schitt's Creek, he gained widespread recognition as Noah Levenstein in the American Pie franchise in the 2000s. With subsequent roles in blockbusters like Cheaper by the Dozen 2, Father of the Bride Part II and Bringing Down the House, he solidified himself as everyone's favourite funny, frazzled dad.

But Hamilton-raised Levy had his humble beginnings in Toronto's regional theatre scene. He got his big TV break when he joined the cast of Second City Television with the likes of John Candy and Martin Short, as well as Schitt's co-star Catherine O'Hara, who will be on hand alongside daughter and fellow co-star Sarah Levy to speak at the Walk of Fame ceremony. (And he'll reunite with Short shortly, newly announced as a recurring character on the fourth season of Only Murders in the Building.)

His son, Dan Levy, has also catapulted to new levels of stardom following Schitt's Creek — which the father-son duo created and starred in together — having just released his feature-length directorial debut, Good Grief.
