Foul-Mouthed Chase

Chevy Chase will play a “a foul-mouthed grandfather who is broken out of his nursing home” in Federal Offense, a comedy acquired by free, ad-supported comedy streamer Crackle.

Crackle didn’t announce additional cast or a release date.

Federal Offense “is a raunchy screwball comedy that centers on three best friends in their 20s who lose a drug kingpin’s stash before finding themselves on the lam from gangsters, bounty hunters and the law after breaking their grandfather out of his nursing home.”

Chase, known for SNL, The National Lampoon Vacation movie series and NBC’s Community, recently finished filming another comedy, The Last Laugh, with Richard Dreyfuss.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Last Laugh is about a “talent manager and widower Al Hart who reunites with his former client Buddy Green after 50 years. Though Buddy gave up a promising career as a stand-up comedian to settle down and have a family, Al convinces him to perform on a bucket list tour of classic stand-up venues across America, giving Buddy a last taste of the life he could have had.”

That film will stream on Netflix, which also hasn’t announced a date.
