David Spade Remembers Chris Farley on the 20th Anniversary of Tommy Boy
The comedic actor posted a remembrance of the late Chris Farley on Facebook
Tommy Boy hit theaters 20 years ago on Tuesday, and star David Spade took to Facebook to remember his late costar and friend Chris Farley.
“I was very lucky to be in this movie with one of the all-time funniest mother f——, the late, great Chris Farley,” Spade wrote. “It’s hard to read but on the poster it says, ‘David let’s stick together!’ Signed by Chris.”
“We gave each other autographed posters as a joke back then,” Spade wrote. “Now I see it in my office and skim over it because if I think about that for more than 5 seconds I’ll start bawling. Like now. As Chris would say, what a p—-. #RIP”
When Tommy Boy hit theaters in 1995, Spade and Farley had already spent five seasons performing alongside each other on Saturday Night Live. The film was Farley’s first major role after SNL, and he’d re-team with Spade the following year in another comedy, Black Sheep.
Farley died of a drug overdose on Dec. 18, 1997.
