    He did some fine acting in this movie although his part was brief...

    Wow, nineteen years. That just seems unbelievable.

    His best for me will always be Planes, Trains & Automobiles. It's such a masterpiece.

    Big JC fan - some favorites include:

    - Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - classic, iconic film. Both funny & sad.

    - Uncle Buck

    - Summer Rental - hilarious!

    - The Great Outdoors

    - Brewster's Millions

    - Stripes

    - Yes, his role in the superb JFK was brief, but still great.

    Also, people may have forgotten that he had a brief, possibly uncredited?! role in the somewhat funny Career Opportunities (1991) as the interviewer near the beginning of the film.

    I still need to check out some of his work on Second City TV from back in the day; have heard about this show for years, but never seen it....

    Do check out SCTV, if not for John Candy, but for all the great comedy bits that skewer show business and pop culture of the 1970s/80s.

    I like him in that film where he's a scriptwriter for a soap opera and sends Robert Wagner to Cleveland. I don't remember the name.

    He was always an awesome bit-part/cameo kind of guy. This is "Weird Wink Wilkinson" from "Little Shop of Horrors."
