Chevy Chase Leaves “Community”
Greendale Community College scores another dropout.
Chevy Chase, known for his role as Pierce Hawthorne on the NBC series "Community", has left the show effective immediately, a source tells Deadline.com.
Chase had had some well-publicized run-ins with show producers, and recently told Huffington Post U.K., "It was a big mistake [taking the role]! 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."
Community will return for its fourth season Feb. 7.
