Chevy Chase joins John Cusack in a "Hot Tub"!

Kinky, right? Actually, it's just more casting for Cusack's next comedy, via this in The Hollywood Reporter:
In an odd bit of symbolism, the Chevy Chase resurgence is leading him back in time.
The comedy vet is now taking a dip in UA's time-travel comedy "Hot Tub Time Machine," with John Cusack and Rob Corddry. The Steve Pink-directed, Josh Heald-scripted film follows a bunch of unsatisfied guys who get thrown back to their younger days in 1987 via their Jacuzzi.
Chase plays a mysterious repairman who dispenses pearls of wisdom and may or may not be behind the metaphysical road trip. The film is shooting in Vancouver and is scheduled for a February release.
The "Saturday Night Live" alum, who toplined a string of classic 1980s comedies, is enjoying something of a comeback. Chase appeared in a recent arc on NBC's "Chuck," and nabbed a role in the Polish brothers' Tribeca film "Stay Cool."
Chase, repped by Fortitude and Kritzer Levine Wilkins Entertainment, also has a starring role on NBC's new series "Community," in which he plays a community college student carrying more divorces than classes.
He is also considering a new script for the Weinstein Co. that would see him reprise his highly quotable role as investigative reporter Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher. A relaunch of the "Fletch" franchise has been in the works for years, with the current screenplay's approach passing the baton to Fletch's journalist nephew as the semi-retired uncle advises him on his stories.
-Good to see him back...thoughts?
