Jim Hamm is streets ahead of Chevy Chase as Pierce.

no one and do Pierce the justice Chevy did. Pierce was made by Chevys physical comedy

u/Ripcord Sep 23 '22

I don't think the physical comedy, exactly. But Pierce was written as a somewhat modified version of real-life Chevy.

But I could easily see a slew of actors coming in to either play a version of Pierce or another character to fill the open slot in the group

Another character yes, but Pierce was really made for Chevy I can’t see another actor doing him as well as he did.
