Eye on Emmy: Alison Brie Embraces Her Spot Within TV's Elite Community of Funny People

Emmys
COMMbriefinale_DW

Alison Brie was once a drama queen. Though today she is best known for playing both sweet and saucy Annie on NBC’s quirky comedy Community and Mad Men‘s over-the-top scene stealer Trudy, Brie was once a theater student studying the works of Shakespeare on the road to achieving her “naïve” goal of becoming an actress who does only serious stage and film work. Five years later, she’s enlisting her inner funnygirl (and eliciting Emmy buzz) for not one but two acclaimed TV gigs, plus a supporting role in Judd Apatow’s latest film comedy, The Five-Year Engagement.

Joel McHale seems to be everywhere these days. Over the past year, he’s established himself as a respected comedian (touring the country with his standup gig); expanded his burgeoning movie career (he has three films slated for release in 2011 and spent May in Boston shooting the dark comedy Ted opposite Mark Wahlberg); and continued his run on two TV gigs, hosting E!’s weekly satirical clip-show The Soup, and starring on NBC’s buzzy sitcom Community as Jeff Winger, the acerbically charming womanizer with a proverbial heart of gold.

It is the latter that might finally garner some industry recognition for McHale in the form of a 2011 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series… READ MORE


Emmys 2011: Sizing Up the Lead Comedy Actor Race — Including Our 6 Dream Nominees

Emmys_LeadActor_Comedy_514_2

Last year’s Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series race was a David-and-Goliath tale, as relative newcomer Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) brought down comedy giant Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) by denying him a third consecutive win. This year, in addition to both of those likely repeat nominees, there’s also Steve Carell to consider. Having bid farewell to The Office, his swan song season becomes Emmy’s last chance to award him for his seminal role. Will he grab gold? Or will a lovable long shot like Community’s Joel McHale emerge from the pack to change the game? REVIEW CONTENDERS & VOTE


Exclusive Video Preview: Community's Paintball War, With 'Sawyer' and Annie's (Actual) Boobs

ABrie_JMcHale_514

“Raised stakes.” “Explosive.” “Colorful.” “Graphic.” “Sawyer.

Those are just a few of the words the cast of Community use to describe the NBC comedy’s “epic” two-part finale (kicking off this Thursday at 8/7c), which is filled with Western regalia and another brutal paintball battle. I was on set for Night 1 of the season-ending shoot — with Lost‘s Josh Holloway in my direct eyeline — to chat with the Greendale gang about what to expect from the “Modern Warfare” follow-up, and guess what? It’s everything they teased above, and more. WATCH VIDEO & READ MORE


Community's Brand-New 'Clip Show': We Preview 12 of the 78 (!) Can't-Miss Moments

Lewis Jacobs, Still Photographer, 2011

The Community crew has really been holding out on us! Sure, we’ve seen an adventure or two (zombiepocalypses, paintball wars) over the years, but this Thursday’s installment (NBC, 8/7c) presents Greendale in a whole new light — one alternately featuring ghosts, glee clubs, and a great love (or loathing) of something called The Cape. As “clip” shows go, this episode is rather epic, boasting some 78 separate (and brand-new) scenes. I’m here to dish on 12 of the standouts. Plus, find out what the cast and creators have to say about the laborious undertaking. READ MORE
