Already unpopular on the Community set - he told The Huffington Post UK this year that signing on for the NBC sitcom was a "big mistake" - Chevy Chase really got himself in trouble during the filming of a recent episode.

NBC announced today that the comedy legend will be on the Emmy-winning crime drama this season, playing a TV star who is pulled over for drunk driving while wearing blood-soaked clothes, and whose surprising religious prejudice comes out after his arrest.

The episode, entitled "In Vino Veritas," is slated to air on Friday, November 3.

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 Emmys. He has since starred in more than 20 films, including National Lampoon's Vacation and its three sequels, Fletch and Caddyshack.

One of the many great Caddyshack quotes that could be reused in this new Law & Order episode could be when Chase's character is pulled over: "What brings you to this nape of the woods, er, neck of the wape, officer?"

Classic.
