AMERICAN PIE star Eugene Levy is beginning a quest to find his long-lost Scottish relatives.

Levy plays hapless JIM's father in the popular movie trilogy and the actor, who has also appeared in Best In Show and Father of the Bride, is planning to track down his distant relatives.

Canadian-born Eugene, 56, knows his mother hails from the Gorbals area of Glasgow, and is eager to track down her relations.

He says, "Her maiden name was KUDLITZ and she came over to Canada in 1920 when she was about eight or nine.

"I have not been to Scotland but I think there are still some relatives there I have never seen."
