Joel McHale to Play Chevy Chase in David Wain’s ‘National Lampoon’ Movie
Now here’s a very fun bit of casting news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, David Wain’s in-the-works Netflix film about National Lampoon co-founder Doug Kenney has cast the role of Chevy Chase, and it’s an actor who knows him better than most: his former Community castmate Joel McHale. McHale joins previously announced star Will Forte as Kenney, and Domhnall Gleeson has also signed on to play Lampoon co-founder Henry Beard. The project is reportedly set to begin production this month and is based Josh Karp’s 2006 book A Futile and Stupid Gesture.
