Chris Hemsworth is preparing to workout his funny bone. He’s signed on to join The Hangover‘s Ed Helms for a new movie in the National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise, Vacation.
The Australian hunk will show off his comedic skills in another follow-up to the original 1983 film, which was directed by the late Harold Ramis and starred Chevy Chase, Beverly D’Angelo and John Candy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he’ll be taking on the role of Stone Crandall, Audrey Griswold’s husband. Day is reportedly making a cameo a river rafting guide.
Helms has already signed on to appear in the new movie as Rusty, who was played by former child star Anthony Michael Hall in the first Vacation movie. Christina Applegate will also star as his wife.
The new movie follows Rusty Griswold, the son in the franchise’s hapless Griswold family, as an adult experiencing his own family break.
It’s rumored that Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will make cameos in the film.
