Glover spoke to Cinemablend at Comic-Con and stated that he really wants to do a Back to the Future episode, has an idea for it, but it isn’t well-formed. That resulted in the following exchange between co-star Gillian Jacobs and Glover.
Glover: It’s really hard to do. Time travel is already hard. Jacobs: We can’t actually break the laws of physics. Glover: We’ve never had actual magic on the show. Time travel is tricky. It would have to be some sort of, like, mistake. But a mistake big enough that it can sustain a whole episode, but also small enough that it doesn’t fuck up the rest of the world. So it’s hard. I had an idea, but it’s not well-formed.

IMDb has a review of the Community cast members. Here are the highlights:
People: Yvette Nicole Brown
“This has been a season of revelation for Shirley, and revelation for me playing Shirley,” Brown said. “There are layers to this woman.
It’s been fun to play her because I’m trying to figure out if she did used to be an alcoholic, and if she has possibly hooked up with Senior Chang in a bathroom for Halloween, what does that mean for who she really is? Is she a Christian who’s struggling? Is she a hypocrite? And that’s a lot of meat!” ”
People: Ken Jeong
“Last year, I knew what to expect,” Jeong explained. “My character was more structured. I taught a Spanish class, and I kind of knew that rhythm very well.
“Now, I just really get to play. And I love the fact that he’s not in the study group. It’s like Wile E. Coyote never catching the Roadrunner. It’s like Charlie Brown never kicking the football that Lucy takes away. I love the pain that he goes through.” ”
Gap is launching its Holiday campaign-”Want”- which includes a series of videos featuring Donald Glover.
The videos answer the question-if you could give anything in the world, what would it be? In Donald Glover’s video, he speaks passionately about giving back to Community Connections, which offers mental health services to both adults and youth of District of Columbia. What’s cool about this video-and all of the videos in the series-is that you can support various causes by sharing them with your friends and family. For every “Like” a video receives on Facebook , $1 will be donated to the charitable organization featured in the video, up to $150,000. Plus, each time someone “Likes” a video, Gap will give them a little something for themselves-30% off one regularly priced item.
I just started catching up on NBC’s ‘Community‘ and I really love this show! What’s the next step for Jeff and Annie? – aurore59 Poor Annie will get “the talk” when Season 2 arrives this Thursday at 8/7c. And things will be fine… until a few scenes later, when they will be very not fine. You have never seen the fan hit so hard by so much.
Mystery Team Sword Club, ASSEMBLE! The Donald Glover for SPIDER-MAN campaign has officially begun. It all started when the idea of casting an African-American Spider-Man in the upcoming Marc Webb SPIDER-MAN reboot was purposed and Glover’s name was casually thrown into the ring. Soon, Glover (who most recently stared in the cult hit MYSTERY TEAM and stars on NBC’s Community) caught wind of the idea and it’s all snowballed from there.
Obviously pleased with the idea of playing Spider-Man (honestly what nerd wouldn’t be?) Glover went to work on getting the buzz out. The “hash-tag” #donald4spiderman was created and the subsequent re-tweet bomb dropped.
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.
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).
