One doctor has offered his opinion about why the actor/comedian looked to be in such poor health. According to Radar Online, his condition may be the result of steroids and Cushing syndrome.

Is Chevy Chase Sick? Comedian's Health In Question Following SNL
Fans are worried about Chevy Chase's health after his appearance on the red carpet for the SNL 40th anniversary special on Sunday. During an interview with Carson Daly, the actor/comedian was sweating profusely and looked bloated. His voice also sounded strained.

He said of his time on the iconic series: "I left after the first year because I thought this isn't going anywhere... I liked [hosting]. I liked it. But I missed it more for not being a part of the cast because I left after one year, I had reasons to leave.

15 Celebrities Who've Had Near-Death Experiences (NDEs)
Many celebrities have come close to death, whether through car crashes (Tracy Morgan), surfing accidents (Gerard Butler) or drug overdoses (Eminem), but only a handful have had what can be described as near-death experiences (NDEs). These are people who have died, seen something on the other side, and have come back to life.

In 2001, actress Sharon Stone ("Basic Instinct," "Total Recall," "Casino") had a brain aneurysm that nearly killed her. She described the incident to Katie Couric, saying she felt like she had been shot in the head. The impact was so great, she fell over the sofa.

28 Celebrities Who Use Stage Names
Many celebrities have changed their names before they hit it big, and for many reasons. Let's take a look at some of the biggest stars who didn't take their birth name to Hollywood.

Katy Hudson didn't want to be confused with Kate Hudson, so she took her mother's maiden name and became Katy Perry.

Oprah Winfrey's name is iconic, but it's not actually her real name. It's Orpha, after the biblical figure. However, so many people mispronounced her name while she was growing up that the mispronunciation stuck.

Barry Manilow was born Barry Alan Pincus. He took his mother's maiden name...

Jay Pharoah made his debut as President Barack Obama this weekend on Saturday Night Live - after being introduced by the actor he replaced in the role, Fred Armisen. Ever since the phenomenal take on the 2000 election and the debates before it, the casting of comedic takes on presidential candidates has more buzz than the next James Bond. Here's a quick history of SNL's presidents:

Fred Armisen/Jay Pharoah: Barack Obama. SNL had a decision to make when it came to casting Obama for the upcoming 2008 election. Kenan Thompson was the only African American on the cast, but his heavy build wa...

"Community" star Joel McHale hopes the public war of words between his co-star Chevy Chase and show creator Dan Harmon will lead to a spike in ratings for the show because the series has yet to get picked up for a fourth season.

Chase famously lashed out against Harmon during a expletive-laden voicemail earlier this month, calling the scriptwriter an a**hole and an alcoholic. The message went viral after Harmon aired the clip at a Los Angeles comedy club.

The pair has continued to hurl insults at one another, with the writer confessing he should not have gone public with the audio.

The creator of Chase's comedy show "Community" played the tape for an audience of at a Los Angeles comedy club, revealing, "I was airing my dirty laundry for a chuckle."

In the voicemail, Chase took aim at Harmon, insisting the show is suffering due to his "bad writing."

Q&A: John Landis Talks 'Three Amigos!' Turning 25, And Gives Insight On Other Classics

11/22/2011 2:30pm EST
Three Amigos
In the 1986 comedy “Three Amigos!” Steve Martin quips, “You dirt-eating piece of slime! You scum-sucking pig! You son of a motherless goat!” Every time you hear the insult, it’s almost impossible not to laugh with Martin’s matter-of-fact delivery. What makes the statement even more comical though, is that Martin’s character has no idea he’s pissing off, a bad guy, who’s ready to shoot him for the outrage.

“Three Amigos!” tells the story of three unemployed actors (Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short) who mistakenly travel to a Mexican village for a celebrity appearance. This is n...

'Community' Recap: Competitive Ecology

10/10/2011 7:55am EDT
community 3
The most recent episode of NBC’s “Community” is, in some ways, one of its most meta and self-referential outings. Greendale Community College’s motley study group always seems to be spending more time arguing and screwing off then actually studying (a serious complaint from the show’s critics). In “Competitive Ecology,” the writers, in their unique way, address those who take issue with that aspect of the show.

The team’s Biology professor, Dr. Kane, tells the class that they’ll be partnering up to build a terrarium which will be due the next day. Instead of letting the students choose the...

‘Community’ Recap: Biology 101

9/23/2011 10:04am EDT
One of the most entertaining aspects of NBC’s “Community,” now entering Season Three, is its ability to never take itself too seriously. From “Pulp Fiction”-inspired episodes to claymation hallucinations to Sergio Leone-style paintball competitions, “Community” is one of the most inventive shows currently on television.

The episode kicks off with an over-the-top musical number featuring the entire cast (save Chevy Chase’s Pierce Hawthorne who left the group at the end of last season) which describes the characters’ goals for this year (meaning season). As it turns out, the sequence is just...

James Franco And Anne Hathaway To Co-Host Oscars

11/29/2010 2:00pm EST
James Franco and Anne Hathaway have been selected to co-host the 83rd Academy Awards telecast on February 27, 2011. It is the second year in a row that more than one host has been selected, with Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin performing the duties last February.

The most interesting twist is that both hosts are in consideration for awards. Franco is considered a favorite to win Best Actor for his performance in Danny Boyle's 127 Hours, whereas Hathaway has a long-shot chance at Best Actress for Love and Other Drugs.

It is only the second time since 1987 that more than one host has been sel...

Before tuning in for the premiere of “Community” this Thursday on NBC, we were lucky enough to chat with co-stars Joel McHale and Alison Brie about going back to school for a sophomore season and all the crazy chemistry on the set of their hilarious hit comedy.

Fan favorites, Joel McHale and Alison Brie play the study group’s de facto leader, Jeff Winger, and its most studious pupil, Annie Edison.

Check Out The 30th Anniversary Of 'Caddyshack,' On DVD & On Demand Jun 8

6/6/2010 7:20am EDT
The smash success "Caddyshack" became a prototype for countless other wacky T&A-tinged teen comedies of the early 1980s.

At an exclusive country club for WASPish snobs, an ambitious young caddy (Michael O'Keefe) from an overpopulated home eagerly pursues a caddy scholarship in hopes of attending college and, in turn, avoiding a job at the lumber yard. In order to succeed, he must first win the favor of the elitist Judge Smails (Ted Knight), then the caddy golf tournament which the good judge sponsors.

Of course, there are love interests as well - one good, one naughty - not to mention s...

Quentin Tarantino is set to follow in the footsteps of stars including Chevy Chase, Richard Pryor and Bruce Willis with an induction into New York's legendary Friars Club.

The Pulp Fiction director will be the focus of the organization's annual 'roast' later this year, which sees honorees ridiculed in mocking tributes.

Friars Club President Freddie Roman hopes the moviemaker takes the mockery in good humor, telling New York Post gossip column PageSix, "Having seen Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, I pray that he understands that we only roast the ones we love."

Callie Cameron
Will Farrell and his co-executive producers Adam McKay and Chris Henchy have brought the Internet comedy phenomena to television with the new HBO series ‘Funny or Die Presents’. Actress Callie Cameron plays a retro and well, slutty secretary who stars in the opening and closing scene of every episode. We are fans of the website so we were excited to get the chance to chat with Callie about her experience on the show.

You might recognize Cameron from the Old Spice commercials of Super Bowl 2005 fame. She also did a spread in Maxim magazine and was voted one of the hottest wom...

'Community' Recap: 'The Art of Discourse'

4/30/2010 9:10am EDT
Put on your homage-spotting caps, it's another new episode of Community.

After last-week's dead-ringer mafia movie/Scorcese parody, the writers took on the godfather of college hijinx flicks- Animal House.

It all begins with Abed, the catalyst for all the meta self-awareness in the Greendale universe, trying to complete his freshman year bucket list by recreating gags culled from classic college comedies.

Troy agrees to be his Morgan Freeman character and is promptly pantsed by Abed, who is disappointed Troy isn't wearing the traditional white heart-print boxers. Troy returns the favor (...

This week's episode of Community, "Beginner Pottery," uses the same premise as "Introduction to Film," something the characters acknowledge when Jeff comes to them with a blow-off class suggestion.

Abed and Annie choose to join him, while Pierce shows up in nautical regalia in order to convince the group to take a one-week boating class. Shirley and Britta are on board, as well as Troy, who says, "A black person on a boat? I gotta see this. I'm in."
