Director and superest Super Trooper Jay Chandrasekhar was on Sklarbro Country today and he told a story about Chevy Chase being classic Chevy Chase during the filming of Mixology Certification:
The bits are in three parts: beginning, and move along, and payoff. … So I said, "All right, Chevy, it's time to shoot the second part of the bit," and he goes "eh, you don't need it." And I'm like, "Yeah, yeah we need it, we need it." He goes, "Nah, don't worry about it, you don't need it."

OK, here’s what we know: Dan Harmon, the creator of Community, won’t be returning to his baby next season because…well, that’s the question, isn’t it? On his Tumblr (I love 2012), Harmon wrote, "A few hours ago, I landed in Los Angeles, turned on my phone, and confirmed what you already know.

Because all words before 'rectum' are superfluous: John Goodman's Community promo features him as Greendale's villainous Vice Dean Laybourne, head of the air conditioning repair school, as he over-intimidates Dean Pelton.
