[Complete List]


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).

  • Used to spend his summer and other vacations at a castle on a beautiful beach in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
  • Parents divorced when he was four, and his father remarried into Folger coffee family. His mother's third marriage was to Juilliard School professor/ composer Lawrence Widdoes.
  • Prefers to do family-oriented movies and has turned down roles in several films including the lead in _American Beauty (1999)_ (qv).
  • Attended Riverdale Country School in New York City.
  • Was a long-time class clown expelled from private schools like NYC's Dalton but did well at Stockbridge School in Massachusetts. Expelled from Haverford College after bringing a cow into the third floor of a campus building. Transferred to Bard College, where he dated actress 'Blythe Danner' (qv) and graduated in 1967.
  • 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.
  • Suffers from a fear of snakes.
  • 'Paul Simon (I)' (qv) is one of his best friends. He appeared alongside Simon in the music video "You Can Call Me Al," in which he lip-syncs all of Simon's lines. Due to that video's remarkable success, Chase was asked to return when Simon released his follow-up album. In the music video for "Proof", Chase was accompanied by another of his best friends, 'Steve Martin (I)' (qv).
