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.” ”

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

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.
