Chevy Chase stars in NBC's comedy "Community" as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom.

One of the most honored and beloved actors of his generation, Chevy Chase first came to national prominence as a writer and performer with the original cast of NBC's "Saturday Night Live," for which he won two Emmy Awards. Soon after he had endeared himself to television audiences, Hollywood beckoned and Chase made his feature film debut in the comedy-thriller "Foul Play" with

Goldie Hawn. His many memorable films include: "Caddy Shack," "Seems Like Old Times," "National Lampoon's Vacation," "Fletch," "National Lampoon's European Vacation," "Spies Like Us," "The Three Amigos," "Funny Farm," "Caddyshack I," "Fletch Lives," "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," "Memoirs of an Invisible Man," "Cops and Robbersons," "Man of the House," "Vegas Vacation," " "Snow Day," "Ellie Parker," and "Funny Money."

In 1992, Harvard's Hasty Pudding Theatricals, the nation's oldest undergraduate dramatic group, honored Chase as its "Man of the Year."

Chase began his career in comedy as a writer and performer for "Channel One," a local New York underground revue that satirized television. "Channel One" later became the basis for the film "The Groove Tube." He has written for Lily Tomlin and the Smothers Brothers, and earned a Writers Guild of America Award for writing "Alan King's Energy Crisis, Rising Prices and Assorted Vices" TV special. In addition, he won an Emmy Award for co-writing "The Paul Simon Special."

In 2007, Chase received critical acclaim for his guest-starring role on NBC's award-winning series "Law and Order." He followed that return to the small screen with a two-episode guest-appearance on the drama series "Brothers and Sisters." Most recently, Chase guest starred on the NBC series "Chuck" and has completed production on the feature film "Stay Cool," with Winona Ryder and Sean Astin, which is scheduled for release in late 2009.



Chase resides in New York with his wife, Jayni, and their three daughters. He moved to the Northeast over a decade ago to be continually accessible to the needs of his family, including three daughters just entering adolescence, feeling that their needs would require more than just a mom and a working actor. He has been simply a "dad" as the kids have grown through changing seasons, hormones, and schools.

Now that they are 20, 24, and 26 years old, he has decided to once again get back to the work he loves: making movies and television.
