Forgotten Chevy Chase

"Chevy Chase is sitting on the porch, outside his home in wooded Westchester County. He takes a drag off a Marlboro and casually mentions that he ran into Donald Glover backstage at “Saturday Night Live.” This is striking on multiple levels. Chase, one of SNL’s founding fathers, last appeared on the show for its 40th anniversary special in 2015. It wasn’t pretty. He was bursting out of his tux, drinking too much and depressed. A cloudy, backstage interview with Carson Daly led Defamer to ask, “Is Chevy Chase okay?”. These days, Chase is sober and about 40 pounds lighter. But he hasn’t softened up, and he wasn’t about to avoid Glover, even after what the “Atlanta” star said about him. Two months earlier, in a New Yorker profile, Glover was asked about working with Chase on NBC’s late sitcom “Community.” According to the magazine, Chase, out of envy, tried to throw the younger actor off. Glover said Chase told him, “People think you’re funnier because you’re black.” The New Yorker termed the comments “racial cracks.”" [Washington Post]
