It turns out that “Community” creator Dan Harmon wasn’t the only person former cast member Chevy Chase had a feud with.

Series star Joel McHale paid a visit to “The Howard Stern Show” this week, where he opened up about Chase’s disdain for the series and noted that Chase would look to get rough if necessary.

When he was asked about Chase’s attitude toward the show, McHale stated, “He just didn’t want to be there.” He went on to note that when he tried to talk to Chase about enjoying the ride, “he would just try to fight me … He physically wanted to fight me.”

After making headlines for insulting Harmon (who later departed the NBC program) and using the N-word on set, Chase left the show last November but will appear in most of the upcoming new season of the series.
