Chevy Chase leaving COMMUNITY

Posted on November 21, 2012 at 3:17 pm by David "Snackbar" Edmundson

20121121-151143.jpgComic icon Chevy Chase is leaving the gang at Greendale Community College. If Community ever returns for its 13 episode run though, Chase’s Pierce Hawthorne will appear in the bulk of the episodes. Insiders are reporting that 10 or 11 episodes have already been filmed, and Chase does appear in those, but he will not appear in subsequent episodes. Chase had a public distaste for original creator and show runner Dan Harmon before he was removed earlier this year. When asked by the Huffingtin Post, why he joined the Community cast he said;

“It was a big mistake! I just sort of hung around because I have three daughters and a wife, and I figured out I might as well make some bread, every week, so I can take care of them in the way they want … The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television.”

Class act Mr. Chase. I’m kind of disappointed at his recent behavior, but it seems to validate his career long reputation of being difficult to work with.
