Rusty from 'National Lampoon's Vacation' Married Christina Applegate, Turns Out
You know all the times you've watched National Lampoon's Vacation and thought, "Man, I hope Rusty ends up with Christina Applegate"? Well, your dreams are about to become reality. According to THR, Applegate is in talks to play Rusty's wife in the upcoming Vacation reboot, which sees Rusty finally aging and mutating into his fourth form, that of new vacationing patriarch Ed Helms. The character is described as "strong-willed," but otherwise isn't really characterized or even given a name beyond "wife." Are they sure they don't want Leslie Mann for this?
