'Community' star Alison BrieRaise your hand if you want to meet Annie's new rival!

Yeah, that's what we thought, 'Community' fans. For two seasons, Annie Edison's overachieving ways have endeared us to her, buttoned-up attitude, sweater sets, half ponytails and all.

Judging by these exclusive photos from the second episode of Season 3 (premieres Thurs., Sept. 22, 8PM ET on NBC), Annie (Alison Brie) will finally meet her match in what the hilariously un-PC people behind 'Community' are calling -- wait for it -- Asian Annie.

Asian Annie looks like a force to be reckoned with and (special bonus!) one of these pics also gives the first glimpse of their new poli-sci professor, played by 'Party Down' alum Martin Starr. Looks like he's taking Asian Annie's side in the girls' stare-down, but luckily Jeff's (Joel McHale) got Annie's back.

Take a look at the photos after the jump and tell us: How do you think Annie will react to her new classroom competition?

'Community' Hires Martin Starr as Greendale's Latest Professor

Martin Starr'Community' is on an awesome person guest-casting roll: First Michael K. Williams signs on to play a fresh-out-of-jail biology professor, then John Goodman inks a deal as the new vice dean of the school of air conditioning repair. Now another beloved actor will join them in the faculty lounge.

Martin Starr, king of the critically acclaimed but prematurely canceled TV series (RIP, 'Party Down' and 'Freaks and Geeks'), will guest star as a poli-sci professor and Model UN advisor, TVLine reports.

The gig is currently a one-off, but you never know on 'Community' -- Starr could be back eventually.

According to TVLine, the deal came about after Starr filmed a movie this summer with none other than Alison Brie.

The 'NTSF:SD:SUV::' Cast Talks Acronyms, Guest Stars & the Shake Weight (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jul 18th 2011 4:40PM
You've seen the over-the-top promos, you've probably spied a hilarious on-set picture or two and, of course, everyone's familiar with the show's acronym-happy inspirations -- now we'll finally be thrust into the universe of 'NTSF:SD:SUV::' (premieres Thurs., July 21, 12:15AM on Adult Swim).

Originally thought up as a funny interstitial during Adult Swim's late-night programming, the show now follows the adventures of a band of misfits who are at the top of their game when it comes to fighting terrorists. Yes, it's the 'National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle,' now in 15-minute episode form.

NTSF:SD:SUV::
I got to hang out on the show's set with Rebecca Romijn, Martin Starr, June Diane Raphael, Brandon Johnson, Kate Mulgrew and creator and star Paul Scheer, who describes his strike force leader perfectly: "It's like if Michael Bay and Jack Bauer had a baby, it would be me."

Watch the set visit video interviews after the jump to get a taste of the show, and to hear more gems from the hysterical cast. Like Starr's thoughts on his pal Raphael sleeping with the boss (she's married to Scheer), Romijn's dish about her hubby Jerry O'Connell doing a guest spot and Mulgrew spouting lines and going places where no 'Star Trek' captain has gone before.

EXCLUSIVE First Look: Paul Scheer's New Adult Swim Show 'NTSF:SD:SUV::'

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 29th 2011 5:35PM
Adult Swim fans, one of the funniest fake network interstitials ever is now a TV show. And, judging by these exclusive photos, it's going to be SFA. (That's So Freaking Awesome for the uninitiated.)

SNTSF:SD:VU::

'National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle' -- or the tongue-twisting acronym 'NTSF:SD:SUV::' -- was created by our pal Paul Scheer, who also stars (with hair!) as a member of an elite group of government agents tasked with protecting one of the country's biggest terrorist targets: San Diego.

Now San Diego might not sound like a hotbed of terrorist activity, but you'd be surprised at what Mexico, Canada and even Guam have cooking in southern California.

Normal for a Day on 'Party Down'If you were a rock star, would you yearn for a normal life? That's the question on 'Party Down' (Fri., 10PM ET on Starz). Fictional rocker "Jackal Onassis" is a Marilyn Manson-style star who has grown tired of the fame, the money and the endless groupies. So he decides to swap lives with one of the hapless 'Party Down' employees.

'Party Down' - 'Jackal Onassis Backstage Party' Recap (Season Premiere)

(S2E01) Lydia: "Me and Escapade left him back in Wapato." Casey: "Escapade? That's your ... car?" Lydia: "My daughter, the future star."

It's hard watching 'Party Down' knowing that this show will likely not be back for a third season. But, set aside all the casting news -- virtually all of the cast is committed to new pilots and series star Adam Scott is going to 'Parks and Recreation' -- and 'Party Down' is just as enjoyable as it was last season. The writing remains sharp and quick, while the sardonic wit that makes this show so special continues to flourish.

The season 2 premiere finds the caterers backstage at a concert of the fictional rocker Jackal Onassis (Jimmi Simpson). Henry (Adam Scott) has been promoted to team leader and Ron (Ken Marino) is no longer with the team, but runs into them at the concert. Kyle (Ryan Hansen) and Roman (Martin Starr) are still there, not finding much success in their careers yet.

Gone Too Soon: 'Freaks and Geeks'

Freaks and Geeks
Created by Paul Feig and produced by Judd Apatow, 'Freaks and Geeks' is one of those rare television treasures that no one saw or appreciated until it was too late. Okay, that's unfair. Critics, the press and the loyal fans who did find the show on NBC immediately knew that it was something special. Unfortunately, it didn't find wide enough appeal to last beyond its first season.

Ironically, the show's cast of virtual unknowns now reads like an all-star comedy troupe, which is a testament to the brilliant casting that went on behind the scenes of the show. Finding such talented kids, and then coupling them with brilliant writing crafted on of the most revered television shows of all time.

Where are the Freaks and the Geeks now?

by Danny Gallagher, posted Apr 3rd 2009 10:02AM
freaks and geeksFreaks and Geeks is not only a cult classic among TV fans, but it's also one of TV Squad's favorite "Ol' Yellers". Those are the shows that were taken out back and shot down by the networks before they had a chance to fully develop, despite the crying, whimpering, snot-producing pleas of those who loved them most. It may not be clever, but it sounded a lot nicer than "stillborns".

So it's no surprise that the show made a cameo appearance in a recent AOL interview with mega-superduperstar Seth Rogen on the heels of his new movie Observe and Report about a rogue mall cop who is more tazer-happy than the campus police at the University of Florida.
