'Community' Star Jim Rash

Harmon Firing Had Zero

to Do with Chevy Feud

"Community" creator Dan Harmon's firing from his own show came shortly after his very public view with Chevy Chase -- but fellow cast member Jim Rash says one thing has nothing to do with the other. 

Our photog caught up with Rash -- who plays Dean Pelton on the show and won an Oscar earlier this year for co-writing "The Descendants" -- outside a theater in Hollywood last night. He told us that the cast "couldn't love him more" and the decision to not re-new Harmon's contract was totally out of their hands.

Harmon blogged yesterday that he heard the news the same way everyone else did ... and never even spoke to the people at Sony (who produce the show).

The "couldn't love him more" line is total BS. I know someone that works on the show. Everyone HATES Harmon and the studio was looking to get rid of him for a long time. He is an alcoholic and a jerk.

I hope Harmon gets blackballed from Hollywood. Chevy is awesome and didn't deserve the treatment he got from this douchebag

He is being a little careful. But it is to be expected, why rock the boat.


I love Jim Rash though. By far the funniest part of the oscars when he mocked Angelina Jolies leg stance right after she was on stage.

The whole spat with Chevy Chase was a publicity stunt to hype the show's return from hiatus. Duh.
Chevy is the most gifted physical comic in the cast, and will be there to the end.
