Donald Glover of NBC’s Community Mystery Team

By , May 27, 2010

The mega-popular internet comedy sketch group Derrick Comedy present their first feature-length film, Mystery Team. Donald Glover of NBC’s Community wrote the film and stars as Jason, an earnest high school senior who, along with his pals Duncan (D.C. Pierson) and Charlie (Dominic Dierkes), have never seemed to grow up from their innocent days of tree houses and Hardy Boy-style mysteries. They even have supposed special abilities, like being masters of disguise or genius-level skills of deduction. Mostly, though, they just annoy Oakdale with their do-gooder meddling.

‘Big Bang’ Vs. Community

By , May 24, 2010

Grab the Thursday comedy mantle by moving Monday hit Big Bang Theory to anchor the night.

Traditionally staid CBS is making the most dramatic move for the 2010-11 TV season. Seizing the opportunity to take over the Thursday-night comedy mantle, the network will move current Monday-night hit The Big Bang Theory—which recently landed a rich syndication deal and is averaging 14.1 million viewers and a 5.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic—to 8 p.m. on Thursday. It will lead into the new William Shatner comedy $#*! My Dad Says.

“Nothing is setting the world on fire [Thursday at 8 p.m.],” noted Kelly Kahl, senior executive VP of CBS Primetime.

Formerly the time slot of iconic NBC comedy Friends, this fall Big Bang will go head-tohead with NBC’s Community, a promising comedy that is still a long way from hit status. $#*! My Dad Says, based on the Twitter phenomenon, will be competing against NBC’s 30 Rock.

Donald Glover, Community, at Comix

By , May 23, 2010

Five things TimeOut NY learned last night from Donald Glover (of NBC’s Community):

1. There is an unspoken code of conduct that comedians expect from audiences. Laughter is appreciated and welcome. Vomiting and crying, however, are not.
2. Anyone expecting to hear nonthreatening jokes from Glover’s lovable, earnest Community character for an hour was in for a crude, outspoken (and utterly hilarious) surprise.
3. A handy way to predict the direction a dialogue with your significant other is going to go: If a conversation begins with “What’d you mean by that?,” it’s not going to end with “Oh, now I know what you meant by that.”
4. Glover deserves a place in Lady Gaga’s cadre of eclectic visionaries.
5. No matter what anyone tells you, there’s no place in California that is like New York (least of all downtown Los Angeles, which is like something out of Mad Max).

Vulture: Joel McHale on Community’s First Season, the Epic Paintball Episode, and His Rippling Physique

By , May 20, 2010

Vulture’s Emma Rosenblum talks to Joel McHale of both Community and The Soup fame about transitioning from host to actor, filming the paintball episode, and obtaining his physique:

On landing an acting part on a sitcom:

Yeah, how did that happen? No, seriously, I’d always been looking for a sitcom — that was the whole reason I went on The Soup, for it to do the same thing for me as it did for Greg Kinnear, or at least if I could have 5 or 10 percent of his career, I’d be happy. And rarely do scripts make me laugh out loud, but there were a number of jokes in the Community pilot script that did that. Actually, I was on a plane, reading the script, and there was a guy watching that movie, What Happens in Vegas, that Ashton Kutcher movie, and he was getting mad at me because I was getting loud — laughing and interrupting his romantic comedy. So I thought that was a good sign.

On making the paintball episode:

I think it took about eight days to shoot 23 minutes of footage. You’d walk into the cafeteria, and they’d turned it upside down; there was a fire in it. And it was the most physical episode I’ve done, with the jumping and the stunts; it was like a boyhood fantasy of being in an action movie. They hired a paintball company and brought them in to shoot up the place. They just kept handing us loaded paintball gun after loaded paintball gun.

On buffing up:

I just starved myself and started doing push-ups every night. I didn’t have time to go to the gym, and I just chased my kids around. It was like when Rocky chased the chicken, in Rocky I, that’s basically what I was doing with the kids. And I just started doing push-ups as much as I could, ’cause knowing I was going to be naked, I didn’t want to be embarrassed. I think I ended up losing ten or fifteen pounds. I starved myself and ate hard-boiled eggs and salad. They also spray-tanned me because my skin is nearly translucent white.

The LA Times has an article about Joel Mchale, the star of Community. Here are some of the highlights:
Joel McHale has hit TV shows on NBC (“Community” on Thursdays) and E! Entertainment (“The Soup”) and movie deals reportedly in development (“The Big Year” with Owen Wilson, Jack Black and Steve Martin and “What’s Your Number?” with Anna Faris), but he knew he had really arrived when he was asked to throw out the first pitch at Dodger Stadium last month.

“That was fantastic, but I was just worried about getting it over the plate,” said the Hollywood Hills resident with a laugh. “And I’m proud to say that I did not horribly embarrass my family.”

Now wife Sarah and sons Eddie, 5, and Isaac, 2, can hold up their heads when they’re around town with Big J.
