Watch: 'Community' stars Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie & Yvette Nicole Brown at Comic-Con, Part 1
How did they react to Dan Harmon's exit? And what does Gillian want in a 'Community' movie?
A year ago at Comic-Con, I sat down with the bulk of the "Community" cast in two groups of three for a couple of long video interviews. One conversation was pure anarchy, while the other featured the funniest/furriest running gag I've ever been in a room for.
This year, I got Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Alison Brie and Yvette Nicole Brown, and while I was tempted to force some kind of sequel to "YOU GUYS!!!!," there were too many serious things to discuss about "Community" as it approaches its fourth season, including the firing of creator Dan Harmon, the hiring of new showrunners Moses Port and David Guarascio, and the way the insanity of the show's fans has buoyed the actors no matter how dark the show's fate has seemed.
Things get a bit goofier towards the end of this part of the interview, as they discuss Jacobs' plan for a "Community" movie, but look for more laughs in part 2 (coming tomorrow morning) as the actors discuss exactly how and why they've become so close and silly together.
The new season of "Community" begins on Friday, October 19 at 8:30 p.m. on NBC.
