Chevy Chase Joins the Cast of Hot Tub Time Machine

Clark Griswold is back! Well, not really, but Chevy Chase is the latest to join the already fantastic cast of MGM's comedy Hot Tub Time Machine being directed by Steve Pink. Already starring as the three leads are John Cusack, Rob Corddry, and Craig Robinson, along with Lizzy Caplan, Crispin Glover, Lyndsy Fonseca, and Clark Duke. The plot, which we already know, involves a hot tub that turns out to be a time machine and takes the three back to their days of glory. Chase will play a crazy repairman, who at times seems "completely off his rocker," but may be the only one who can return the friends to the present day.
While this scoop was first exclusively reported by Entertainment Weekly, over on Hollywood Reporter they have a slightly different character description. "Chase plays a mysterious repairman who dispenses pearls of wisdom and may or may not be behind the metaphysical road trip." Sounds like an awesome role to me. The film is currently shooting in Vancouver and is scheduled for a February release next year. I hate to jump the gun on a project like this, but I really can't wait for Hot Tub Time Machine, it seems like it could be the newest Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure-like time travel comedy that could very well be an instant classic.

Chevy Chase was great in 'Chuck' as a villain! (By the way, don't forget: season 3 of Chuck will start in March 2010 :-)! Or perhaps even earlier.) Hot Tub Time Machine - doesn't sound bad 🙂 Hope it will be good...
