CHRIS HEMSWORTH TO GO ON 'VACATION' WITH THE GRISWOLDS
Chris Hemsworth has always talked about wanting to do a comedy, now he has his chance. Hemsworth is reported to be in negotiations to join the classic comedy franchise Vacation according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Hemsworth has shown glimpses of his comedic chops in SWATH when caught in the net by the dwarfs. He also dropped funny lines in the Thor and Avenger films.
Newline has been attempting to reboot the franchise for some time and now it appears that they are easing closer to production.
Hemsworth would play the friend of Rusty Griswold. Ed Helms is currently in talks to play the adult role. They will also be joined by Christina Applegate who will play Rusty's wife.
The original 80's series starred SNL alum Chevy Chase as Clark Griswold the patriarch of the lovable bumbling family. It also starred Beverly D'Angelo. Both are set to return in cameos.
