"Community" returns to air this Thursday, February 7th at 8pm with David Guarascio and Moses Port serving as the new showrunner, and will feature Chase's Pierce Hawthorne for what's reportedly the majority of its 13-episode season. Promoting the premiere on "The Howard Stern Show," star Joel McHale opened up about his difficult costar, as seen in the clip below, saying "he didn't want to be there." When asked by Stern about Chase's use of the n-word on set, an incident reported on by TMZ, an amusedly rueful McHale notes "yeah, you shouldn't be throwing that around," and explains that "he was protesting his character's racism -- he didn't like the way his character, Pierce, was going. He also said in the past that Richard Pryor said it was okay for him to call him that. He used that!"
