Ed Helms to play Rusty Griswold in 'Vacation' reboot



movies_rusty.jpgRusty Griswold was played by a different actor in every National Lampoon's Vacation flick, so it's fitting that yet another will play the grown-up son in a Vacation reboot. The star of The Hangover films is in negotiations to star in New Line's Vacation, says and Variety.

"The new version of the vacation adventures of the quirky dad and his family will follow Rusty, who now has his own family misadventures on the road," Variety says.

Personally, I'd have preferred they'd focus on Cousin Eddie's daughter Vicki, who seemed to have a nice career plan worked out for Sin City's adult scene in 1997's Vegas Vacation. But to each his own.
