American actor and comedian, extremely overweight with the face of a sweet, wicked baby. He brought a manic bon-homie to his starring roles in some of Hollywood's successful comedies, including "Uncle Buck" and "Cool Runnings."

Candy took drama courses in Toronto and worked a variety of jobs before his first pro acting role in a children's theater group. A member of Second City Comedy Troupe in 1972, he became a regular performer and writer for the group's TV show in 1977. His film break was in "Splash," 1984.

He was married with two kids. A big sports fan, he also loved music and was part owner of a chain of blues bars-restaurants. Candy died of a heart attack during the night while on a movie location near Durango, Mexico, 3/04/1994.
