Chevy Chase Calls His Time On “Community” Nothing But A “Big Mistake”!

Chevy Chase is calling his days at Greendale Community College a mistake!

Chevy Chase is calling his days at Greendale Community College a mistake!

In a new interview with Huffington Post UK, the “Saturday Night Live” alum said that his time spent on his show, “Community”, has to be some kind of mistake:

“It was a big mistake! I saw this pilot script, thought that 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…”

And yes, apparently Chase has a lot to take care of at home:

“My wife has just been in the Antarctic, and Cuzco in Peru, and Lima, and Machu Picchu … she likes to travel. That was about a month of traveling, and that will take about a year of work.”

Chase, who was speaking at the season two DVD launch party for the show, said that while he’s done television for the past few years, he definitely loves making movies more:

“I prefer movies because the money is better and certainly because you really know where you stand when you are making movies, and I have made a lot of them: 50 something, I don’t know. The hours in this kind of show are not commensurate with the actual product. The hours are hideous, and it’s still a sitcom on television, which is probably the lowest form of television. That’s my feeling about it.”

So why stick around?

“I think the reason I have stuck around is because I love these kids, the cast — they are very good.”

Well for our sake, hopefully he stays in love with the cast a little while longer…

You can catch the fourth season of “Community” starting Friday, October 19th at 8:30pm on NBC.
