EUR was on the Scene with the Griswolds and 30 years later the family is heading back to Wally World, in the new National Lampoon’s “Vacation.”
This time around Ed Helms (Rusty Griswold) is behind the wheel, along with Christian Applegate (Debbie Griswold) and the sequel is in theaters now!
EUR: Your character has several mature lines…what was it like playing Kevin Griswold?
Steele Stebbins: It was weird at first, I never thought I would be saying this kind of stuff at 11 years old but then I thought…’I have to say this.’ And then after a month, I was like, ‘alright I’m going to cuss again today!’ I kind of got used to it.
EUR: How many hours would you survive on a cross-country road trip with your family and what would you do to pass the time?
Steele Stebbins: Eight or nine hours..anything passed that I would go crazy. I would sleep and play on my phone.
Evander Kane: I haven’t too many road trips with my family…but I would say 12 hours. I would watch sports on my phone.
EUR: What is the best or worst family vacation you have been on?
Evander Kane: The best was the first time we went to Disneyland because it was our first real family vacation. It was fun for me and my sisters to come down to the States, for the first time.
David Faustino: We drove up the coast with our three dogs to Cambria. They have a dog friendly city and hotels. It was the greatest time!

“Vacation” synopsis – The next generation of Griswolds is at it again. New Line Cinema’s “Vacation,” starring Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films) and Christina Applegate (the “Anchorman” films), takes the family on the road for another ill-fated adventure. The film marks Jonathan Goldstein & John Francis Daley’s directorial debut.
Following in his father’s footsteps and hoping for some much-needed family bonding, a grown-up Rusty Griswold (Helms) surprises his wife, Debbie (Applegate), and their two sons with a cross-country trip back to America’s “favorite family fun park,” Walley World.
Rounding out the cast Skyler Gisondo (“Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,” “Hard Sell”) and Steele Stebbins (“A Haunted House 2”) as Rusty’s sons, James and Kevin; with Chris Hemsworth (the “Thor” films) in the role of Stone Crandall, Rusty’s irritatingly successful brother-in-law; Leslie Mann (“The Other Woman”) as Stone’s wife, Rusty’s sister, Audrey; and Beverly D’Angelo and Chevy Chase as Ellen and Clark Griswold from the classic “Vacation” comedies.
Goldstein & Daley (“Horrible Bosses,” “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”) wrote the script, based on characters created by John Hughes. David Dobkin (“The Judge,” “Wedding Crashers”) and Chris Bender (“We’re the Millers,” “Horrible Bosses 2”) are producing, with Marc S. Fischer, Jeff Kleeman, Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Samuel J. Brown and Dave Neustadter serving as executive producers.
The directors’ behind-the-scenes creative team also includes director of photography Barry Peterson (the “Jump Street” films, “We’re the Millers”), production designer Barry Robison (“Wedding Crashers,” “Pitch Perfect”), editor Jamie Gross and costume designer Debra McGuire (“Ted”). Music is by Mark Mothersbaugh.
