mmy Award-winning comic actor Chevy Chase prat-falled his way to fame as a member of Saturday Night Live's original Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time-Players cast in the mid-'70s, creating memorable moments as President Gerald Ford and as the anchor of the classic "Weekend Update" sketch. 

Originally hired by SNL as a writer, he convinced Lorne Michaels to put him on camera in the "Weekend Update," fake-news segment. When he opened his mouth and out came: "Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase and you're not." he had the comedy world at his feet. Chevy became the show's first true star, leading the pack into the Emmy awards winning for both his acting and writing. After a season and a half he ran off to Hollywood leaving behind a lot of mixed feeling with the cast. Mostly they were happy to see him go as they now had a chance to take the spotlight like they so deserved.

He migrated successfully to the big screen not something all SNL alums can claim with a straight face winning over more fans with his portrayal of family man Clark Griswold in four, count 'em four, National Lampoon Vacation movies, as Caddyshack's suave golf pro Ty Webb, and as the smart-aleck title private eye in the Fletch series.
