Hip, hip hooray for Christmas Vacation. While the National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise produced a variety of hits, it’s safe to say the holiday installment (which is included in the Warner Bros. Holiday Gift Guide) is the most beloved.
From quotable moments to laugh-out-loud lines, the 1989 film has found its place among Christmas classics. With Chevy Chase back as the fearless leader of the Griswolds and an all-star cast of comedians just trying to make it through family dinner, there’s something relatable for everyone in the film.
While Clark is definitely off somewhere dreaming to “Mele Kalikimaka,” the actors behind the family have found Hollywood success. So grab your Wally World mug and some egg nog, and read on for what the Christmas Vacation cast has been up to.
Chevy Chase – Clark
Chevy Chase has worked steadily in Hollywood since his National Lampoon days. While the early ’80s and ’90s were Chase’s peak, the decade after found him taking roles in Snow Day, before being relegated to small guest appearances in TV shows like Law & Order and Chuck.
