Levinson also produced the critically acclaimed HBO series Oz. His latest film, Wizard of Lies, with Robert De Niro as financial con man Bernie Madoff, premieres in May.

Gilbert Gottfried

Gilbert has notably been a cast member of SNL, made infamous by appearances in Beverly Hills Cop II, The Cosby Show, Late Night with David Letterman, The Howard Stern Show, and his turn as the wise cracking parrot Iago in the Disney classic, Aladdin. Gottfried has made memorable appearances on Comedy Central Roasts and also appeared in the hit comedy documentary The Aristocrats, with Entertainment Weekly saying that "out of the 101 comedians who appear on screen, no one is funnier - or more disgusting - than Gilbert Gottfried." In addition, Gilbert also hosts the hit podcast Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast.
