Joel McHale addresses Chevy Chase’s dislocated shoulder during a physical altercation on the set of COMMUNITY

The fan favorite TV series Community is finally getting the next movie we’ve been waiting for. The old cast is returning to reprise their roles…that is, except everyone Chevy Chase, who played the character Pierce Hawthorne on the show. Chase, who is best known for his Nation Lampoon’s Vacation films, as well as classic comedies such as Caddyshack AND Three Amigos!he has a reputation for being difficult to work with, and has been very vocal in hating the making of the show Community, at one point calling the cast unfunny hacks. His co-stars aren’t exactly sad to see him go either.

In a recent episode of Michael Rosenbaum Inside you podcast, protagonist of Community, Joel McHale described a section of his 2016 memoir, Thanks for the money, which included a “step-by-step on how to fight Chevy Chase.” When Rosenbaum asked whether their on-set altercations were verbal or physical, McHale confirmed that multiple physical incidents had occurred. First, McHale joked: “It was an advanced joke. You know, jokes, and then they always turned into sex.

From there, he described the reality of the situation, saying, “It would get a little controversial. It got to this point… I got in trouble once because I hurt him. I dislocated his shoulder.”

The series ran for six seasons, from 2009 to 2014. Chase was the series’ protagonist for the first four seasons, returned to a guest role in the fifth season, and then did not return for the final season. It seems like it was for the best and no one will really miss him in the movie. I hate when actors I like to watch in movies and shows turn out to not be good people in real life.
