'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.

Yvette Nicole Brown Save CommunityThe "Save 'Community'" movement has friends in high places at NBC, according to series star Yvette Nicole Brown.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Brown said an executive -- Edwin Chung, the senior vice president of primetime at NBC -- came to a 'Community' table read wearing his homemade T-shirt two days after NBC announced its plans to shelve the series.

"This is someone who's kind of in the process with us and knows that it's not ideal that we're not on the air," she said.

'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?

EXCLUSIVE 'Community' Season 2 Behind the Scenes Clip & DVD Giveaway

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 6th 2011 10:00AM
'Community''s Yvette Nicole BrownWe love Shirley on 'Community' almost as much as we love Yvette Nicole Brown, so this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the Season 2 DVD (out today) is a real gem.

Creator Dan Harmon sat down with Brown -- in her full Father Guido Sarducci get-up from their last paintball duel, naturally -- to pat himself on the back for something he believes he achieved this year. "I fully and completely captured the 'Black Woman Experience' with your character this year," Harmon said straight-faced, to which Brown appropriately let out one of her fabulous signature laughs.

The clip also shows Harmon and Joel McHale reenacting a scene between Shirley and Britta (Gillian Jacobs), horrible imitations and all, before really diving into what's important: Season 3.

So what does Brown want to see happen for Shirley this season (premieres Thurs., Sept. 22, 8PM ET on NBC)? Note: We wholeheartedly support all her ideas!

Now for the fun part: Watch the video and tell us what YOU want to see happen in Season 3 in the comments. We'll select one lucky winner at random to receive the 'Community' Season 2 DVD.

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.)

'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.

Yvette Nicole Brown on Her 'Community' Pregnancy and Stalking Guest Stars (VIDEO)

Yvette Nicole BrownIn the world of 'Community,' getting your dream guest star on the show can be easy as asking.

Star Yvette Nicole Brown actively campaigned for her character Shirley's husband, Andre, to be played by Malcolm-Jamal Warner. And just like that, it happened!

"Lord knows I talked about him enough on the set in the first season," Brown told me when she stopped by TV Squad's offices recently to dish about the NBC comedy (Thursdays, 8PM ET).

"The idea that they actually listened to my foolishness and my campaigning and brought this wonderful man on set has made me happy beyond belief."

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?

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 ...

The Show Girl's Set Visit-O-Rama: 'Fringe,' 'Private Practice' & 'Community' (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 17th 2010 10:00AM
FringeIt's a set visit-o-rama this week, and I've got fun scoop from the casts of some of my favorites: 'Fringe,' 'Private Practice' and 'Community.'

At 'Fringe,' stars John Noble and Jasika Nicole dish about the new season and the issues with Nolivia/Bolivia/Altlivia. (I also have some exciting news about episode 4.) Then I hit 'Private Practice' to talk Shonda Rhimes crossovers -- both the big 'Grey's Anatomy' one this season, and a possible one with her new Hawaii-based Doctors Without Border drama 'Off the Map.'

Then it's over to 'Community,' where Yvette Nicole Brown dream casts her TV sister. (All together now: That's nice.) And I get risky and ask multi-tasker Alison Brie a risque 'Mad Men' question about little Sally Draper's big, um, personal scene this year. (Yes, she blushed.)

'Community' Cast Talks Betty White, Dream Guest Stars & Topping the Paintball Episode (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Sep 8th 2010 4:50PM
I added a few must-watch new shows to my DVR last fall, but of all the returning sophomore shows this year, I'm most excited for 'Community.' If they proved anything in Season 1 (with episodes focusing on paintball wars, awkward school dances and chicken fingers), it's that they can -- and will -- do just about anything.


I visited the set of 'Community' to catch up with the cast before Season 2 premieres (Thurs., Sept. 23, 8PM ET on NBC), and the episode they were shooting that day was epic ... but more on that closer to premiere. For now, don't you just want to see your favorite Greendale Human Beings in action?

Joel McHale, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Gillian Jacobs and Donald Glover gave me the scoop on Betty White's stint on the show, what other guest stars they'd love to have on and how they're actively trying to beat the fan-favorite paintball episode. I also got some Britta vs. Annie questions in there, found out who might be hooking up with Senor Chang (the hysterical Ken Jeong) and got the best treat of all: a nipple dance from Danny Pudi.

Watch and enjoy!

'Community' - 'The Art of Discourse' Recap

'Community' - 'The Art of Discourse'
(S01E022)
I don't even go to college anymore (because I went at the right age ... DUH!), and those damned three teenagers were driving me crazy, too. Not crazy enough to do what the above scene is depicting, perhaps, but it makes me wonder how we let our teenagers survive into adulthood. They're almost too annoying.

It's nice to see, though, that as adults we are able to stay above their juvenile antics. We'd certainly never reciprocate in kind. We have our own pranks to pull. After all, that's what college is all about. It's on Abed's list.
