With his long-standing feud against Dan Harmon having come to an end after the show’s creator and former head writer left Community at the end of last season, Chevy Chase should feel rather contented in his role.
But, unfortunately, the Caddyshack star has once again been voicing his opinions regarding NBC’s comedy, and, once again, he has only bad things to say. At an event to celebrate the DVD release of Community’s second season in jolly old England, Chevy spoke frankly to Huffington Post‘s UK branch about why he decided to star in the show anyway:
“It was a big mistake! I saw this pilot script, thought it was funny, and I went into the room where they were casting and said ‘I would love to play this guy.’ Then they mulled it over. Then they hired me and 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.”
Hardly a resounding story of creativity is it? Chase then went on to reveal that he prefers to work in movies and that he thought that a sitcom “is probably the lowest form of television.”
But it wasn’t all so bad. Chevy loves the vast cast that he works alongside which includes Donald Glover, Joel McHale, and Jim Rash, but he then saved room to divulge the host of movies he turned down. He really is just coming across as a crazy and grouchy old man.
