This Just in: Chevy Chase Is Not Easy to Work with


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.” And I’m like, “Yeah, well, we shot the intro, we shot the payoff, we kind of need the move-along section.” He goes, “Oh, I see, are you telling me about comedy?” And I said, “Well, you know, in this case, I actually am.” He goes, “Go fuck yourself!” And he gets up and he storms off.
