From Wikipedia:Cornelius Crane "Chevy" Chase (born October 8, 1943) is an American comedian, writer, television actor and film actor. Born into a prominent New York family, Chase worked a plethora of odd jobs before moving into comedy and began acting with National Lampoon. He quickly became a key cast member in the inaugural season of 'Saturday Night Live', where his Weekend Update skit soon became a staple of the show. Chase is also well known for his portrayal of the character Clark Griswold in four "National Lampoon's Vacation" films, and for his roles in other successful comedies such as "Caddyshack" (1980), "Fletch" (1985), "Spies Like Us" (1985), and "Three Amigos!" (1986). He has hosted the Academy Awards twice (1987 and 1988) and briefly had his own late-night talk show, 'The Chevy Chase Show'. In 2009, he became a regular cast member (Pierce Hawthorne) on the NBC comedy series 'Community'. Chase left the show in 2012, having already filmed most of the episodes in season 4.
