'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?"

EXCLUSIVE First Look: Meet Security Guard Chang on 'Community'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 21st 2011 7:45PM
Ken Jeong as Chang, 'Community''Community' fans know this better than anyone: Ben Chang is crazy, y'all.

Ken Jeong's twisted character went from Senor Spanish teacher to study group stalker to possible daddy of Shirley's baby (thank god little Ben Bennett was born black and tail-less), but we've got the exclusive first look of him in his new role: Greendale security guard.

Yes, the game is Chang-ing for 'Community' Season 3 (premieres Thurs., Sept. 22, 8PM ET on NBC).

Instead of still trying to be one of the gang, it sounds like Chang will be using his new-found power over the Human Beings to try to scare them into hanging out with him again. Or maybe he's taken the search for Annie's Boobs just a bit too far.

Check out Chang in full uniform after the jump!

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.)

Ken Jeong's Parents Are Still in Therapy Over His Career Change (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 29th 2011 2:20PM
Ken Jeong shows off his moves on 'Live With Regis and Kelly'These days Ken Jeong gets laughs as a comic actor, and occasionally by dancing, as he did Wednesday on 'Live With Regis and Kelly' (weekdays, syndicated), strutting his stuff to Maroon 5's 'Moves Like Jagger.' But that wasn't always the case: Jeong's original career path doctor. But he wanted to be in show business so badly that he started doing stand-up comedy and improv while completing his residency in internal medicine.

"And your parents were understandably devastated," said Kelly Ripa. "Yes," replied Jeong, "they are still in therapy getting over it right now. But now they get those thirty dollar checks every week, you know what I'm sayin', yo!"

Jeong used to include some medical material in his act, and said he surprised some on the 'Hangover' set with his knowledge, slipping out of character to give specific, detailed instructions to one of Ed Helms's sick friends over the phone. "Jaws dropped," said Jeong. But he went back into his goofy character voice, just to reassure everyone his focus was in the right place.

Isaiah Mustafa Cheers Up His Fellow Astronaut on 'Love Bites' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 24th 2011 3:21AM
Isaiah Mustafa, 'Love Bites''Love Bites' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC) continues to be a fun diversion for summer, like a fluffy romantic comedy where you know every beat of the plot, but it manages to pull you along regardless. With it's anthology format revolving around a core group of characters and plethora of guest stars, it's reminding us more and more of 'Love Boat' each week.

This time around, we got a strange little story set up in space where somehow Ken Jeong is allowed to be an astronaut. More expectedly, he provided a little bit of comic relief as well. Eddie McClintock ('Warehouse 13') was convinced his girlfriend was cheating on him, but he learned that her picture was cheating on him as well with Jeong's character in the bathroom.

Ken Jeong Overshares About Pubic Hair Trimming (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Sep 15th 2010 4:25AM
During his role in the hit film 'The Hangover,' Ken Jeong did some full-frontal nudity. On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 11PM ET on TBS), George Lopez has some questions about this -- questions that might not totally be necessary. For example: "Is that your penis in the movie?" (And for the record, the answer is "Yes." Yes, it was indeed Mr. Jeong's actual penis. "Unfortunately," he adds.)

But full nudity may not be the most embarrassing thing that Ken's had to do for the sake of his acting career. While talking with Lopez, Mr. Jeong reveals an unfortunate "trimming" incident which took place during the 'MTV Movie Awards.'

Seth Rogen, Elizabeth Banks on 'Stand Up To Cancer'Actor Ken Jeong only gets naked for the deep films, when it's "integral" to the plot. Yeah, right. Like in 'The Hangover.' And he also strips down for his dermatologist, he explained on 'Stand Up To Cancer' (Fri., 8PM ET on BIO). Live on the fund-raising telethon, his doctor looked him over for signs of skin cancer.

Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks continued the discussion of skin-cancer screenings. The stars of 'Zack and Miri Make a Porno' didn't shy away from specifics. Rogen admitted that guys can even "get skin cancer on your stones."

"In fact, you can get skin cancer anywhere you have skin," added Banks. "That's why skin self-examination is critical." Rogen opined: "Your man berries will thank you for it."

Also in the clip: Will Smith, Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe.

Jay Leno and Chelsea Handler Flirt, Struggle With 'Sexual Tension' on 'The Tonight Show'Chelsea Handler was the guest on 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC). And while Chelsea was talking with Jay Leno, some sparks flew between the two rival talk show stars. Jay started out by congratulating Ms. Handler on her new gig as host of the MTV Video Music Awards. Chelsea said this in reply: "They were actually gonna ask you to do it, but then they realized you're too old." Ouch!

In response, Leno fired back with this: "Yeah, I didn't sleep with a guy [to get the job] either." Oh, snap! That's pretty harsh, coming from Jay. This was also a thinly veiled reference to the fact that Chelsea used to date the CEO of the E! Network, which led to rumors that she got her 'Chelsea Lately' job via having sex with the boss.
