Wow, he sure talks a lot about money.

Q: Your character on Community is a millionaire, is there anything you have ever blown a lot of money on?

CC: Anything I have blown a lot of money on? Well, I have three daughters and a wife - that's four women, and I'm working on a sitcom, so you could say that I am just trying to stay alive!


no, chevy, he's asking you what the largest single order of cocaine you have ever made and then consumed. try to keep up.

Is there a phrase for when a broken clock stops being funny but manages to say something true?

Dan Aykroyd is a UFO nut. He is also somewhere around ten thousand times better than Chevy Chase on every metric I can think of.

The most meta episode of Law and Order I can recall was when Chase was clearly playing Mel Gibson (the sugartits episode "ripped from the headlines"). One famously unlikeable person playing another so well...

Come on, Chevy isn't even in the same league of unlikeable as Gibson. Chevy Chase is simply a bit of a dick. He difficult to work with, but I probably still wouldn't mind meeting the guy. Mel Gibson is completely unhinged anda raging asshole.

"Chevy was notorious for his highly verbally abusive treatment of the cast and crew over the years. He once suggested a sketch where Terry Sweeney (an openly gay cast member) had AIDS, and the sketch showed viewers how much weight he lost every week."

Sounds like a great guy.

Well, he grew up rich.

By all accounts, Chevy Chase isn't quite as crazy as Mel Gibson, but he's more than a 'bit of a dick', he's a raging asshole: http://gawker.com/5899097

That was a weird interview. I checked the date a few times, just to make sure I wasn't reading last year's news. Season 3 finished. The upcoming season will be season 4. Why are they saying "must be back for season three"? Why are they showing a "sneak peak" of season 3 at the bottom?

I guess this is the thread where I admit my hatred of Dan Aykroyd. What a smug asshole. Yeah, yeah, "that's the joke", etc. No matter how good something may be, if he's in it I end up hating his character.

/Cool story, bro

Is it just me, or does this interview make Chevy Chase sound like a raging asshole? I thought he'd be super cool, but he just comes off as a complete condescending douchebag.

This is by far the nicest interview I've read of his in like 20 years.

Yikes. Just yikes. Consider me completely disillusioned on Chevy Chase.

So you're the one who was still illusioned on him.

He's been a raging asshole his entire life. Sort of like Gwyneth Paltrow, he was born on third and thinks he hit a triple. He grew up wealthy, had tremendous success at an early age with SNL, and never learned an ounce of humility. Tom Shale's book about SNL from a few years back couldn't find a single cast member from any era to say something nice about him.

Do yourself a favor and don't read "Live From New York."

Apparently, Chevy was a prima donna before the pilot even aired and the rest of the cast hated his guts.

Dan Aykroyd is a UFO nut because he thinks UFOs might exist. He just just believes in unknown unknowns!

Apparently Chevy Chase is a gigantic asshole.

My hope is that the journalist doing the interview was playing a huge hidden joke on Chevy and asking questions as if he (the interviewer) were Chris Farley.

Go back and read those questions in Farley's voice. Those mindless fanboy questions start to sound better with a lot of ahhs and umms in there.

"National Vacation" I liked "National Vacation in Europe" better. He was also in "Golf Caddy Shelter" He was awesome in that.

Dan Akroyd is terrible. Chase is a much better actor and a much funnier guy. I don't care how much of a jerk he is.

Akroyd is consistently the weakest link of the good movies he's in. Blues Brothers was great because of Belushi and all the wonderful music, Ghostbusters was funny because of Bill Murray, and Caddyshack 2 and Blues Brothers 2000 were unforgivable.

If Mel Gibson is crazy as in mentally ill then he at least has an excuse for being an asshole. As far as I know Chevy Chase isn't crazy.
