Famous pals tried to save Chris Farley



A new book out written by Chris Farley's brother says that Chevy Chase and David Spade tried really hard to help Chris with his drug addiction before he died. Farley died from an overdose back in 1997 at 33-years-old..

In The Last Days of Chris Farley, by Tom Farley and Tanner Colby, Chevy Chase says, "I told him look, you're not John Belushi. And when you overdose or kill yourself, you will not have the same acclaim that John did. You'll be a blip in the New York Times obituary page, and that'll be it. Is that what you want?"

Spade said, "I got a lot of sh!t at the end about, 'Why weren't you there for him?' But being that close, I dealt with it all the time. And in that situation, before the guy's dead, he's just kind of an asshole. Truth is, you get a junkie who's wasted all the time and moody and angry and trying to knock you around, you say, 'OK, you go do that and I'll be over here.'" I miss Chris Farley...
