Although Chevy Chase plays the inept, sometimes-villainous Pierce on Community, it appears that the actor himself may not be any better than his fictional, sitcom counterpart - and a feud between he and series creator Dan Harmon has escalated so much that the future of role on the series may be coming to an end!
According to multiple sources, the actor has been notoriously difficult since day one, and walked off the set of the series on the last day of shooting last month without filming one of his scenes - the apparent close-out of the series finale - for which he claimed to not have received the script, while other assert he simply did not find it funny.
Later, during the wrap party, Harmon reportedly got up and not only scolded the actor in front of his wife and daughter, but encouraged the cast and crew to join him in saying "fuck you" to him! In response, Chase left the party, and left his boss an equally nasty voicemail, which has now leaked onto the internet!
As you know, Patton's Oswalt's wife Michelle McNamarapassed away suddenly in April, and he still struggles to cope with the devastating loss.
Speaking with The Times, the stand-up comedian recounted the heartbreaking morning he found the true crime author had died in her sleep -- a day he says was the "the second worst day of his life," the first being when he had to tell the couple's seven-year-old daughter, Alice, that her mother had passed.
Oswalt recalled telling his wife -- who had been working long hours investigating "The Golden State Killer" -- to "sleep until you wake up." So, McNamara took some Xanax and went to bed.
