It’s been nearly 30 years, but the cast of “National Lampoon’s Vacation” still considers themselves a family.
Entertainment Weekly brought together stars Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo, Dana Barron and Anthony Michael Hall for one of the magazine’s reunion specials to celebrate the movie’s 30th anniversary next year. Barron says that the cast has kept in contact over the years, and calls them “the best family and rapport of actors I’ve ever seen.”
That means that Chase still likes to tease Hall and Barron, who played his onscreen children. Hall explains that he still gets treated like a troublesome son from the 68-year-old “Community” star.
“Going back to 1983, a hundred years ago, he would always rip you and give you s–t,” Hall says “When he pulled up for the Entertainment Weekly shoot I was outside with Beverly, and Chevy pulls up in his Benz. As he slowly starts to open his car door, he looked at me and said, ‘Can I get a coffee?'”
“Vacation” hit theaters on July 29, 1983.
