'Community' May Be Just a Figment of Joel McHale's Imagination (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Dec 9th 2011 12:00AM
'Community' cast - 'The Soup'With 'Community' airing its final scheduled episode this week (Save Greendale!), the cast stopped by to visit Joel McHale on 'The Soup' (Wed., 10PM ET on E!) with some startling news. When McHale asked why Chevy Chase wasn't with them, Ken Jeong told him, "There is no Chevy. He's a figment of your imagination."

Eventually, after Adam Scott and Nick Kroll joined them on set, it was revealed that not only were the pair of them also figments of his imagination, but so was the entire cast. Mankini explained: "This is just a delusion you created so you wouldn't have to face the face that you only work at E!"

Alison Brie chimed in, "If 'Community' were real, don't you think you would have seen a commercial for it on NBC?"

The 'Community' Cast Previews Their Gleeful Christmas Extravaganza Episode

by Maggie Furlong, posted Dec 8th 2011 10:00AM
Last year's 'Community' Christmas episode ranks at the top of my list of favorite holiday-themed TV episodes ever. So how will this year's stack up?

Well there's no funny clay figurines or stop-motion animation, but that's not to say it won't be as magical or uncontrollable as Abed's adventure last season. I mean, we already know there will be a rap video. In 'Regional Holiday Music' (Thurs., Dec. 8, 8PM ET on NBC), the Greendale glee club is sidelined, so the study group has to step up to sing in their place.

I caught up with Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Gillian Jacobs on the 'Community' set to hear more about their song-and-dance-filled holiday celebration, Troy and Abed's sweet rap, why this episode will be particularly gif-worthy and the "very awesome character" that 'Saturday Night Live' funnyman Taran Killam is playing.

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 19th 2011 2:50PM
Donald Glover's had a busy, up-and-down week. First, the bad news: 'Community' was benched when NBC released its midseason schedule. But Glover has got a few other projects going on. He performed a song from his new 'Childish Gambino' rap album on 'Conan,' and tonight his hour-long stand-up special 'Donald Glover: Weirdo' premieres on Comedy Central at 11PM ET.

Check out some preview clips of the special after the jump, which feature Glover joking about writing raps on his iPhone, why he always wears protection and the one white guy who can get away with using the N-word.

'Community' Sneak Peek: Greendale's Most Famous Alum, Luis Guzman, Stops By

Luis Guzman on 'Community'If you're a hardcore 'Community' fan, then you've probably already goatee'd yourself on social media sites in support of the show. You also probably know that Greendale's most famous alum is stopping by tonight (Thurs., Nov. 17, 8PM ET on NBC).

In 'Documentary Filmmaking: Redux,' Dean Pelton directs the gang in a new commercial for Greendale, which also features fan-favorite students like Magnitude (Pop pop!), Fat Neil, Starburns and Leonard. Also stopping by: the most famous former Human Being of all, actor Luis Guzman, who, as we know, also happens to be immortalized with a statue on campus.

And just like last season's documentary episode, Abed takes over a bit, filming the filming of the commercial for his own archives.

I caught up with the 'Community' cast on set to talk about the Real Luis Guzman vs. Statue Luis Guzman -- here's what stars Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, Alison Brie, Donald Glover and Gillian Jacobs had to say about "The Guz."

'Community' Sneak Peek: Take a Look Inside Troy & Abed's Apartment (PHOTOS)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 13th 2011 2:30PM
Troy & Abed... in ascots!Tonight's episode of 'Community' is awesome. Just getting that out there.

Titled 'Remedial Chaos Theory,' the entire episode takes place at Troy and Abed's new apartment, where a little housewarming party is in full swing. And by full swing, we mean there's Yahtzee. Naturally.

The story breaks off into different timelines, showing us how each person in our favorite study group changes the dynamic ... and not all of the timelines are pretty.

There's repeated head bumps, a shooting, drug use, a horrifying Eartha Kitt story and possibly a make-out session with a fan-favorite couple. The greatest part about it is that not all of these timelines actually took place ... or did they?

We'll have to wait until next week to find out what's real and what isn't, but for now just take a look at these very real, very hysterical decorations from Troy and Abed's place. (Torg not included -- you have to watch to see him.)

'Community' Season 3 Preview: New Teachers, Romance & Something Called Torg

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 22nd 2011 12:00PM
'Community' Season 3 starts off with a hallucination, some epic TV references and a quick and fun musical number (Thurs., Sept. 22, 8PM ET on NBC) -- and that's just in the first episode.

I visited the set to find out more about the season premiere, titled 'Biology 101,' and what else is coming up for our favorite Greendale Human Beings.

'Community' cast
We know Annie gets a new nemesis in "Asian Annie," Chang is now a security guard and Troy and Abed are roommates (with Annie moving in with them soon, too), but what's changed for the rest of the study group?

Comic-Con Q&A: The 'Community' Cast Gives Scoop on Season 3 (VIDEO)

by Laura Prudom, posted Jul 23rd 2011 8:30PM
CommunityWe know the 'Community' gang will be taking biology in Season 3 (premieres Thurs., Sept 22, 8PM ET on NBC), and news broke this morning that Michael K. Williams (a.k.a. Omar from 'The Wire') will be popping by to play their new professor.

What we haven't heard yet? "Me, Annie and Abed move in together," Donald Glover spilled. " I hope I'm allowed to say that." Creator Dan Harmon said it was more of a possibility for Annie to move in, but did confirm that Troy and Abed will be living together this season: "They definitely are living together, Ernie and Bert-style, from the beginning of the season." What does Danny Pudi think about that? "I think our room will be a blanket fort."

Then there's Dean Pelton (a.k.a. Jim Rash) who's been bumped up to series regular -- so, obviously, expect plenty more awesome costumes this year. "I think I have officially become just a doll for the writers to imagine what else my body should be put in," Rash laughed. "They saw my legs and they were like, 'Oh man, we gotta get more of that on TV.'"

We caught up with Harmon, Glover, Pudi, Rash and stars Joel McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown, Gillian Jacobs and Ken Jeong on the Comic-Con red carpet to find out a little more about the new season. (And, while Alison Brie wasn't there, Annie's Boobs was, shilling the Season 2 DVD.)

Watch the video to see who has a secret, who wants to learn more at Greendale, who's taking a position of authority and who's losing an arm. (Kidding about one of those ... we think.)

'Cougar Town' Stars Pop Up on 'Community' -- Will the Character Crossovers Go Both Ways?

by Alex Moaba, posted May 7th 2011 1:18PM
NBC has released a picture from next week's 'Community' season finale (paintball part deux, part deux) that appears to confirm rumblings we've been hearing that a multi-network 'Community'-'Cougar Town' crossover episode is in the works. This development marks an awesome next step in the referential love-fest that's been going on between the two shows for well over a year.

What's the evidence? Check out 'Cougar Town' actors Dan Byrd and Busy Philipps standing behind 'Community' actors Donald Glover, Danny Pudi and Alison Brie in the background of this photo.


Pretty cool, right? The two shows have been engaged in a friendly ping-pong game of mutual admiration lately, and now it's really starting to get fun.

'Community' Cast Talks About Josh Holloway, Crazy Costumes & Paintball (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted May 2nd 2011 9:00AM
By now we've all heard a lot about 'Community''s big two-part paintball season finale (part one airs Thurs., May 5, 8PM ET on NBC; part two airs May 12), but what do we really know?

Well, Josh Holloway is guest starring as the mysterious Black Rider, and his old pal Chevy Chase was happy to have him and his dimples on set. Not surprisingly, everyone admits to having a massive crush on Holloway: "I was flirting with him. I don't care," Donald Glover said; "Dreamy with a capital "D," Joel McHale agreed.



Also, there's a Sergio Leone western theme for the first part, but the costumes and theme change a bit for part two, welcoming a 'Star Wars' theme -- sort of. There are stormtroopers running around and Danny Pudi's Abed looks a lot like Han Solo when he takes off his serape, but Yvette Nicole Brown's Shirley is dressed as Father Guido Sarducci.

Yep, so it'll be about as random as 'Community' fans have come to expect from the show.

Will 'Community' Go Back ... to the Future? Star Donald Glover Hopes So (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Mar 23rd 2011 12:00PM
'Community''s Donald GloverWhen you're starring in a hit TV show that loves to spoof pop culture, regularly employs unbelievable storylines and literally has no rules, the idea of a "dream episode" could certainly become a reality.

I'm hoping that's the case with Donald Glover's ultimate 'Community' episode.

Imagine Chevy Chase as a crazy old doctor, obsessed with time travel; Alison Brie as a hot teen of the 1980s, complete with faded denim jacket; and Joel McHale as a beefed-up bully in the 1950s. Then let your jaws drop as Donald Glover zooms by on his hoverboard, collar popped, jamming to some Huey Lewis.

Yes, I'm asking you to imagine a time, with or without the help of a DeLorean, when we might be lucky enough to see a 'Back to the Future' episode of 'Community.'

Donald Glover Was Hired at 21-Years Old to Write for '30 Rock' (VIDEO)

Donald Glover, 'Lopez Tonight'Donald Glover has had a pretty quick rise to fame, but it may have started even sooner than you realized. On 'Lopez Tonight' (Weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), the 'Community' star talked about the email he received that changed his life. It was a job offer from '30 Rock' to be a writer.

"How did you send the material to them in the first place," George Lopez asked him.

"I emailed it." But don't send off that script just yet: The producers had asked him to submit some material. At 21-years old, Glover thought it was some kind of joke, but before he knew it, he was on staff, and would stay there for three years.

"And you left on your own?" Lopez asked.

Behind the Scenes of 'Community's' Halloween Episode

by Laura Prudom, posted Oct 28th 2010 11:55AM
Joel McHaleGreendale Community College is a very special kind of educational establishment, catering to the drop-outs, the rejects, the elderly and even those who like to forge their qualifications.

It's also one of the most entertaining places to spend 30 minutes of your time on a Thursday evening, even up against such ratings heavy-hitters as CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' and Fox's 'Bones'.

Perhaps you've never seen an episode of NBC's 'Community,' now in its second season (quite likely, since the show is criminally underrated), but if you only watch one Halloween episode this year, you should make it this one -- it's even on at a special time, 8.30PM ET, so you don't have to choose between those geniuses on CBS and the ... different type of geniuses that populate 'Community'.

Besides, this episode has zombies, and Ken Jeong in skintight Spandex; what more could you ask for from a TV show?

Donald Glover, Ferguson Hold Hands, Discuss His Mother (VIDEO)

Donald Glover Holds Ferguson's Hand on 'Late Late'On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson introduced guest Donald Glover as he held hands with the 'Community' star. "Is this getting awkward?" asked the host, gesturing to their hands. "No," said Glover, smiling and peering into his eyes.

Once they were seated, Ferguson asked about pets. Glover, who's also a musician, said he tours too much to have one. What about his dating life? Glover wouldn't give details in order to avoid a call from his mother the next day. Speaking of her, the host said in a leading way, "You know I like your mom."

"She talks a lot about you," joked Glover. "You should visit."
"I usually do when you're on tour," replied Ferguson. Oh, that Craig, such a penchant for innuendos...

The 'Community' Cast Opens Up About Their Chicken Obsession & Tonight's 'Basic Rocket Science' Episode (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Oct 14th 2010 1:45PM
Last season of 'Community,' fans went clucking crazy over the chicken fingers episode. Earlier this season, the cast tweeted pics of their Chick-Fil-A-catered bash for Yvette Nicole Brown's birthday. And now, the Kentucky Fried Colonel himself is leading the Greendale Gang into space. (Sort of.)

What is it with this cast and chicken?

I visited the set while they were shooting tonight's big 'Apollo 13' homage (airs 8PM ET on NBC), aptly titled 'Basic Rocket Science,' where the gang gets locked in a KFC-branded flight simulator and takes a giant step for Greendale Human Being-kind.

Check out my interviews with the hilarious cast to get a sneak peek ...
