    Ooh I completely forgot one of his last movies, Cool Runnings. He is great in that. Every time I flip the channels and see that is on, I have to stop and watch it. Couldn't have been more perfect for that role.

    This was a great role for him. I always remember him walking out of some building with Penthouse in his hand yelling "They published my letter!"
    And if he did nothing more than SCTV he would still be a demi god with so many up here in Canada. Thankfully he made some good movie amongst the dreck. I read that he was one of those actors who needed the rush of being on set. He didn't really care what the movie was after awhile.

    I think he would have done more dramatic acting if had lived longer.

    When Candy was co-owner of the Toronto Argonauts football team he came to Ottawa to watch a game. A friend of mine worked for the Ottawa team and he told me that Candy refused the box seat he was offered and insisted on sitting in a regular seat with the fans. When Toronto scored he would stand up, turn around, look at the Ottawa fans and spread his arms open in a "what are ya gonna do" gesture. Great guy, great actor.
