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).

  • He appeared in the music video and sang in the choir on the song "Voices That Care."
  • In a 1975 New York magazine cover story, NBC executives referred to Chase as "The first real potential successor to 'Johnny Carson (I)' (qv)" and claimed he would begin guest-hosting _"The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962)_ (qv) within 6 months of the article. It never happened.
  • In 2003, he appeared in two television commercials for Cola Turka, a soft drink developed to be in direct competition with both Coca-Cola and Pepsi, while keeping the money in the Turkish economy. The commercials, which were both comic and nationalistic in theme, feature Chase playing a confused American who notices his friend and family using Turkish idioms and exhibiting Turkish customs after consuming the drink. The commercials, exclusively shown in Turkey, were filmed in New York in English, but have Turkish subtitles.
  • Is a huge jazz fan.
  • Wanted to be a doctor when he was younger.
  • Plays piano, drums and saxophone.
  • Fans often imitate his famous, straight-faced, "I like it!" (from _Modern Problems (1981)_ (qv)).
  • Suffers from a fear of snakes.
