As reported by ABC News, Chevy Chase has recently checked into rehab for “an alcohol-related issue.” He’ll be at the Hazelden Addiction Treatment Center in Minnesota for what a rep is calling a “tune-up,” with a TMZ report adding that Chase “wants to be the best that he can be.” Chase previously underwent a rehab stint back in the ‘80s, checking into the famous Betty Ford Clinic to recover from a painkiller addiction.

Chase has two movies in the works, Dog Years and The Christmas Apprentice, with IMDB saying that the former is still filming. Also, a bit of Chase’s backstory will be explored in director David Wain’s A Futile And Stupid Gesture, which is a biopic about National Lampoon co-founder Douglas Kenney. Chase will be played by his old Community co-star Joel McHale, and he’s surprisingly fine with it.
