Chevy Chase began his career 30-odd (very odd) years ago savaging a former GOP vice president; back then, part of the joke was that Chase looked nothing like the then-60-something Ford. But as always, God has the last laugh. It’s further proof that Botox, plastic surgery and better medical technology merely cause Orwell’s maxim to be pushed back a decade or two: At age 64, Chase has the face he deserves.
As Mary Katharine Ham asks, “How ticked off do you think Chevy Chase is these days when he wakes up, looks in the mirror…And sees a slightly less-handsome version of Dick Cheney before his eyes?”
I’d say very.
