Today in the news, the casting of the Vacation reboot/remake/sequel is finally taking shape. And Ed Helms is set to take over the role of Rusty Griswold in the new version of the classic National Lampoon movie. Personally, I'm a fan of Helms and his offbeat humor but I'm not sure about the casting choice. Anthony Michael Hall is still available. Why not have him reprise the role?
The new Vacation will be the beginning of a new franchise that will pick up where the original movies left off, with Rusty taking over as the resident buffoon father. I hope that Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo make cameo appearances. It will not be a Vacation film without them.
