BIOGRAPHY:

Born Cornelius Crane Chase, he changed his name to Chevy Chase, joined the Saturday Night Live crew, and embarked on a highly successful movie career. Chase scored in the eighties with hits such as Caddyshack (1980), the National Lampoon movies and the Fletch movies. All his films show his talent for deadpan comedy. Sadly, his career has generally worsened throughout the nineties, starring in flops such as the wholly mediocre Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992), and Cops and Robbersons (1994).


TRIVIA:
  • He was the first member of the original _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) cast to leave the show - after only one season, a decision he later said he regretted. He was replaced by 'Bill Murray (I)' (qv).
  • Chevy Chase is the name of a 16th century ballad about the battle between Earl Douglas and Earl Percy, as well as the name of a city in Maryland.
  • Has said that he regrets leaving _"Saturday Night Live" (1975)_ (qv) after just one year.
  • Prefers to do family-oriented movies and has turned down roles in several films including the lead in _American Beauty (1999)_ (qv).
  • Is a huge jazz fan.
  • Born to Edward Tinsley Chase, a Manhattan book editor and magazine writer, and his wife Cathalene Parker Browning, who both died in 2005.
  • Has perfect pitch, a musical ability to remember the exact frequency of a note.
  • Chevy was actually a childhood nickname -- possibly based on the Washington, DC suburb -- bestowed by his grandmother. The Chase family was affluent and distinguished, and Chevy was listed in Social Register at early age. His paternal grandfather was painter/teacher Frank Swift Chase; his father, Ned Chase, was a prominent Manhattan book editor and magazine writer. His mother was descended from the Crane plumbing-fixture family.
