‘Community’ & ‘Cougar Town’: A Match Made in TV Heaven?

By , March 29, 2011

As fans of NBC’s “Community” know, last night’s (Thursday) episode, “Critical Film Studies,” began with Jeff Winger (Joel McHale), wearing a suit straight out of “Reservoir Dogs” (OK, it was actually out of “Pulp Fiction,” but it’s the same suit), walking to to a dinner engagement.

In voiceover, he says, “It was my friend Abed’s birthday. I had met Abed at community college almost two years earlier. His obsession with pop culture had always alienated him. He’d quote movies, pretend his life was a TV show. He watched ‘Cougar Town.’ It was as if he didn’t want people to like him.”

At dinner, Abed (Danny Pudi) tells Jeff of his love of the ABC sitcom “Cougar Town,” co-created by Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel, and tells an elaborate story that ends with him having an accident in his pants (in the story he’s telling, not at dinner).

Danny Pudi of ‘Community’ Talks about Latino Hips, Starburns, and Joel McHale’s Christmas Card

By , May 5, 2010

Small Screen Scoop has an interview with Danny Pudi of Community, here are the highlights:

Hey Danny. I was wondering where would you like to see your character Abed go in the next few months or maybe even next season. What would you like to see when the screen editors give you a script and you read it, where would you like that character to end up?

Danny Pudi: You know, I don’t know. And it’s hard for me to – I’m really open about this. I feel so already challenged and fortunate in terms of what I’ve been given and I’m just thankful that my character is not just a one dimensional character. There’s a lot to him, you know.

I think times have changed a lot from the days of, you know, of back in the early 90s when I was growing up and you had (Mel Siemen) Street Fighter or Abu on the Simpsons or, you know, magic rocks protecting Indian villages in Indiana Jones. And the fact that I get to play a character that’s really well rounded and kind of odd and quirky and exploring the world, it’s just so wonderful because I always feel like every week is going to be a fun, new adventure.

So I’m excited to see what happens. You know I think one of the cool things that we’ve been exploring is Abed’s progression as a film maker, including these Webisodes. And in the episode, I don’t know if you recall, the Valentine’s Day episode where I help Joel’s character, Jeff Winger, make a really, a really believable drunk (dial) to Britta and I think you get to see a little bit more of Abed’s directing skills there.

So I’m excited to see more of that, you know, and to see kind of where that takes him. That’s always a – that’s a fun thing for me to explore. And also because I didn’t go to school for film, I feel like I really am learning a little bit more about film making so it’s kind of a great job.

How do you think Starburns would fair against other super heroes.

Danny Pudi: I mean if you saw his – if you saw Starburns: El Star Prince, I think being half mortal and half of the stars, definitely he’s got an advantage against anybody who is human.

The other thing is that no one’s really going to expect there to be laser beams coming out of his Starburns, out of his sideburns, so you can probably get through any metal detector. And I don’t know, also it’s like being able to have his phone and a laser coming out of the side of his face, it just also makes it easy in terms of like if you have to run or anything like that. He doesn’t have to carry too much baggage.

I would think Starburns over most super heroes out there, I don’t know, I’m trying to think if anybody mortal would beat him. I would be interested in seeing him versus Batman. I think that would be kind of just a cool match up. Even though Batman is human – kind of a fun thing to watch.

Q & A With ‘Community’ and ‘Mad Men’s’ Alison Brie

By , April 27, 2010

Hollywood.com has an interview with Alison Brie from Community; here are the highlights:

We’ve seen you do a lot of comedy (Community, Hot Sluts) and in that work the humor seems to come from of your composure and dead pan. How did you develop that? Was it from a particular influence?

Hmmm, good observation! I don’t know where this started exactly. I’m sure a lot of my comedic sensibilities on-screen just come from my day-to-day sense of humor and the way I joke around with my friends. I’ve always surrounded myself with funny and bizarre people and in turn developed a repartee with most of my friends and colleagues that involves one or both of us slipping back and forth between deadpan and total zaniness. Danny Pudi is a major culprit of this, as we spend most of our time together on set doing very specific odd-ball bits behind the camera that nobody else can really quite grasp.

Also, I think it’s important in comedy to be able to define your role in any particular bit; are you creating the comedy or reacting to it? On ‘Community’ we have so many comedic geniuses on the show and everyone gets a chance to go real broad at times and have big physical comedy moments and at other times it is merely your job to play it straight while someone else flies off the handle. I think some of my favorite moments on the show have been reacting to Ken Jeong, who is friggin’ hilarious and can improv and take a scene to it’s very limits and all I really have to do is keep a straight face, which isn’t always that easy. I suppose I also have to credit my college, CalArts, for giving me lots of practice at maintaining conviction behind your own character’s intention in a scene – so when Ken’s ranting and raving and everyone on the crew is losing it and just cracking up, I’m able to stay in character and focus…most of the time!

As of now, you’re regularly balancing cerebral drama in Mad Men with absurdist humor in Community. Which do you prefer? Which comes more naturally?

I cannot pick a favorite! (terrible answer, I know) The truth is that as different as the shows are from one another, and they couldn’t be more different, they are equally fulfilling. The real gift is the opportunity to do both at the same time, which is also a wonderful challenge and great practice! I suppose the comedy comes a bit more naturally to me, but that is one of the things that makes doing both projects so great. We have so much fun on the set of ‘Community’, joking around and trying to find new ways of making things funny. On ‘Mad Men’ the challenge is often to find and articulate the depth and nuance of a character’s emotions in a given situation. The struggle is what makes that fun and the fearlessness and freedom that I find on the set of ‘Community’ help inform the work I do on ‘Mad Men’, and vice-versa. After 3 years of working with such delicate specifics on ‘Mad Men’, it is easy to find comedic twists and turns on ‘Community’ while still giving the character some depth and perspective.
