Season five of "Community" is upon us (the show returns Thurs. Jan. 2 at 8:00 p.m. on NBC), and I got a chance to talk to stars Alison Brie and Gillian Jacobs about the show's new season, the return of Dan Harmon and "nerd boners" for Nathan Fillion (who will be guesting this season).

In addition to all the stars who will be appearing on the show (including Robert Patrick and "Breaking Bad" star Jonathan Banks), they have a few suggestions for people they'd like to come play. Brad Pitt, clear your schedule!

Will you be watching tonight?
