The Schitt's Creek star says dad Eugene had a makeover that looks a little too familiar


Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy may love working with famous dad Eugene Levy, but he doesn’t exactly love twinning with the star.

Dan, 35, opened up about looking similar to his dad, 72, on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. In fact, the pair’s spread in PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive issue in November inspired Eugene to get a makeover.

“He has since had like, a full-body makeover on the show,” shared Dan of Eugene, with whom he executive produces and costars in Schitt’s Creek.

The said makeover looked rather familiar for Dan, who said his American Pie star dad copped his look.

“When he came in to do our show, he sat down and the hair and makeup team sort of did this coif … and he really responded to it, and now wears that every day,” he said. “What he didn’t necessarily realize is that it was my haircut at the time, so now we sort of have a very similar haircut. I remember thinking like, ‘Oh you just … that’s my hair. I guess you can have it.’ ”

Dan and Eugene’s spread in PEOPLE was called “Like father, like son,” and featured other famous father-son pairs like Snoop Dogg and son Cordell Broadus, and Dennis Quaid and son Jack.

“Watching him work has been one of the great master classes for me in how to do it right,” Dan told PEOPLE at the time. “He’s handled his career with such grace and poise and respect and really informed how I want to continue running my professional career.”

Schitt’s Creek, which follows an incredibly wealthy family after they lose all their money and move to small-town U.S.A., will return in 2020 for a sixth and final season.
