Alison Brie on 'Community' feud: 'It's a little rift in the tides'

By
Community star Alison Brie has downplayed reports of a feud between co-star Chevy Chase and series creator Dan Harmon.

Chase - who plays Pierce on the NBC comedy - recently left Harmon a string of abusive voicemails, later branding Community "a mediocre f**king sitcom" .

"I think that there have been rumors of more dramatic feuds on other shows that have been long-term successes, so I think when it's a slow news day on the internet, anything is big news," Brie told Vulture. "But in the scheme of things, it's a little rift in the tides."

The actress, who plays Annie, added that Chase is still a "fun" presence on set.

"Chevy is still amazing at physical comedy," she said. "I can't speak for anyone else. But... I personally... hang out with him [and] get along with him. We are friends."

Brie insisted that the Community cast are more concerned about the show's future than the reported feud.

"This year, I think our biggest concern is coming back for a fourth season, and that was heavy in the air all year because we were pulled off the air halfway through shooting our [third] season," she explained.

"So I think everyone's focus was just on bolstering each other and then keeping in touch with the fans and doing good work and showing the network why we should continue to be on the air.

"That's means more to me than whatever mini-dramas are happening behind the scenes; they're not at the forefront of everyone's mind all the time."

Community continues on Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC. In the UK, the series airs on Tuesdays at 10.30pm on Sony Entertainment Television.
