Chevy Chase’s publicist, Heidi Schaeffer, confirmed on Monday that the actor has checked into an addiction-treatment center in Minnesota. His rep described Chase’s stay as a “tune-up” to his addiction recovery, and that he “wants to be the best that he can be.” He also fought a prescription-pill addiction back in the ’80s. The 72-year-old funnyman is best known for his work on Saturday Night Live, National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise, and, more recently, on Community. His upcoming film, The Christmas Apprentice, is slated to be released in 2016, presumably around the holiday season.
