Chase Unimpressed by Murray's Acting

26 December 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Veteran comedian Chevy Chase enjoyed new movie Lost In Translation, although he wasn't so impressed with his old friend Bill Murray's performance. The Fletch actor - who used to regularly appear on TV show Saturday Night Live with Murray - was reportedly overheard commenting on Murray's acting in posh New York eaterie the Meeting House. Chase said, "I liked the movie. But I thought Billy's acting was restrained. I thought it was too controlled." And when a smoke alarm was set off by the restaurant's grill and firemen were called to the scene, Chase had trouble locating his fork, according to website Pagesix. He said, "Waitress? Fire Marshall? Someone? I need a fork." »

Chevy Chase's Cola Controversy

23 October 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Chevy Chase has laughed off claims he behaved unpatriotically by filming a commercial for a Turkish soft drink during the war in Iraq. The Fletch star was criticized in the American media after shooting the TV advertisement, because at the time Turkey were refusing to allow the American military to use its airspace for the conflict - but Chase insists the controversy has no basis. He says, "I did a commercial out of nowhere for a cola in Turkey. They call it Cola Turka. I saw some article that implied I betrayed my country for having done it. But what do I know? I just filmed a commercial." »

Kevin Smith Wants A-List Fletch

14 August 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Cult movie maker Kevin Smith has drawn up a shortlist of Hollywood's hottest male stars to play Fletch in the upcoming comedy - but he hasn't told any of them yet. The Clerks auteur is eyeing a list of A-list talent, including Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck, for the role of the investigative journalist made famous in the eighties by Chevy Chase. His flick Fletch Won is intended to be a prequel to 1985's Fletch and 1989's Fletch Lives. Smith originally wanted Jason Lee to take the part, but backers Miramax wanted a bigger star, so he's been considering household names. He explains his vision for the film, "The other Fletch films were Chevy vehicles. We've taken an early novel where the author told the origin of how Fletch got his job on a newspaper. The model for this film is Out Of Sight. Though these actors know nothing about this, I've worked down to a short list of Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt, Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon and Adam Sandler for the role of Fletch." Fletch Won is scheduled to begin production in January 2004. »
