The Resume

    (April 18, 1954- )
    Cast Member and Writer on 'SCTV'
    Appeared in 'Strange Brew (1983),' 'Streets of Fire (1984),' 'Ghostbusters (1984),' 'The Wild Life (1984),' 'Brewster's Millions (1985),' 'Head Office (1985),' 'Club Paradise (1986),' 'Little Shop of Horrors (1986),' 'Spaceballs (1987),' 'Ghostbusters II (1989),' 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989),' 'Parenthood (1989),' 'My Blue Heaven (1990),' 'Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (1992),' 'Splitting Heirs (1993),' 'Little Giants (1994),' 'The Flintstones (1994),' 'Big Bully (1996)' and 'Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves (1997)'
    Provides the voice on 'Gravedale High'

Why he might be annoying:

    He is typecast as a nerd.
    He starred in a straight to video sequel of 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,' called 'Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves.'
    His movie star has faded, with his last appearance providing a voice in the straight to video 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Island of Misfit Toys.'
    He didn't show up for an SCTV reunion.
    He is short (5'4).
    He reprised his Bob McKenzie character in commercials for Molson.

Why he might not be annoying:

    Along with SCTV's Dave Thomas they formed the McKenzie brothers as a protest to the Canadian government requirements for 'identifiable Canadian content' in domestically produced television programming.
    The McKenzies became famous for using as many negative Canadian stereotypes as possible, and eventually made Moranis and Thomas members of the Order of Canada for their contribution to Canadian culture.
    He is convincing in the role of a nerd.
    His wife died of cancer (1991).
    He rarely appears in recent movies due to his disgust over movie industry standards.
    He went to public school with Geddy Lee of Rush.
    He has written columns that were published in the New York Times and the L.A. Times.
    He is left handed.
