Chevy Chase, Beverly D'Angelo to Reprise Vacation Roles
Hide your breakables and stay off the roads, because Clark and Ellen Griswold are going on vacation again!
Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo -- who played the calamity-magnet parents in National Lampoon's Vacation and three sequels -- will reprise their roles in a new ad campaign to be launched during the Feb. 7 2010 Superbowl.
The advertised service in the homage to the 1983 original (about a madcap American roadtrip)? HomeAway vacation rentals, naturally!
"To this day, people ask me, 'When is the next Vacation movie?" says Chase, currently starring in NBC's Community. "So I'm sure everyone will get a kick out of seeing the Griswolds and their misadventures once again."
Adds D'Angelo: "Clark and Ellen have one of the most enduring marriages ever to come out of Hollywood. I am thrilled that HomeAway is reuniting Chevy and me."
The campaign will also feature an exact replica of the film's iconic "Wagon Queen Family Truckster" -- minus the wear and tear it receives in the course of the classic comedy.
