Yeeesh, would you look at this crew. Pre-diabetic De Niro and an overly-dehydrated Chevy Chase looking like they are about to bring back another sequel to Weekend At Bernies. I hate to say it, but Burt Reynolds’ condition shocked me the least. It’s not exactly a secret that his health has been dwindling. Rumors of him having aids since the 80’s have always permeated, so it’s no surprise to see him propped up on a stool like a one of Jeff Dunhams puppets.
But would you look at Chevy and De Niro? This has to be the fattest De Niro has been since his dramatic weight change in Raging Bull except something tells me this isn’t for a role. Wasn’t it yesterday that he was running with Zach Efron on the beach with a 6 pack? Man they weren’t kidding when they talked about metabolism changes when you get old.
And Chevy?! Jesus Chevy, somebody get this man a Sham-Wow or something. Pop that jacket off you lunatic, your sweating like a blind lesbian in a fish market. Guys wearing a winter jacket, with what looks like an entirely fake prosthetic neck, and its about 70 degrees out. I guess hes just nervous because if he loses his grip, one of the most iconic actors of the 20th century is going down like Mr. Glass in a train station.
“Hey Chev, your sweating, why don’t you pop that jacket off?”
“Who me?! No ! I’m Fine! Griswalds blood always runs cold, don’t you know that Rusty?”
