Chevy Chase and ‘Community’ creator Dan Harmon feud in expletive-laden fight

Chevy Chase is not feeling much community spirit these days.

The 68-year-old actor, who plays curmudgeonly tycoon Pierce Hawthorne on the NBC sitcom "Community," is reportedly on the outs with series creator Dan Harmon after several on-set arguments and an expletive-laden phone message.

Neither Chase's nor Harmon's reps responded to omg! Canada's requests for comment, but according to Deadline (not to mention fans on Reddit's "Community" board), Chase walked off the set on the last day of shooting last month, failing to film the final scene in the Season 3 finale.

Still smarting from the snub, at the "Community" wrap party Harmon gave a "F--- you, Chevy" speech to partygoers, who included Chase himself, along with his wife and daughter.

Following Harmon's display, Chase reportedly left the party immediately and proceeded to leave Harmon a very angry and cuss-filled phone message, which Harmon played to other people -- one of whom apparently recorded and leaked it.

"I don't get talked to like that way by anybody, certainly not in front of my wife and daughter, you goddamn a------," Chase is heard to say in the message. "I have nothing to say to you except you can s--- my c---."

The recording is unclear at times, though Chase can be heard slamming Harmon's writing and explaining that he stormed off set because he didn't get his script in time.

Though they didn't leave any messages, a number of Chase's cast mates (who include stars Joel McHale and Allison Brie) were reportedly equally appalled by Harmon's disrespectful treatment of the actor.

The "National Lampoon" alum (and source of Weekend Update on "Saturday Night Live") rose to fame in the 1980s in big screen comedies like "Caddyshack" and "Fletch," only to see his career stall in the '90s.

Though Chase has appeared on a number of series over the years ("Family Guy," "Chuck," and "Law & Order," to name a few), his only experience as a recurring cast member had been as one of the main sketch players on "Saturday Night Live" during its first season in 1975, and in the role of late-night talk show host on the short-lived and much-maligned "Chevy Chase Show."

He has reportedly felt growing pains in the sitcom genre, allegedly storming off the "Community" set several times in the middle of a scene and getting into tiffs with the show's executive producers and directors. Perhaps that is why he recently told the Huffington Post that he "can't stand sitcoms."

"I have creative issues with this show. I always have," he recently said of "Community." "It's like being relegated to hell and watching 'Howdy Doody' for the rest of your life."

Sounds like the puppet's string has been pulled for the last time.
