Well, if Allison Brie can do Mad Men, then Gillian Jacobs deserves a prestige show to join, too. And that show will be HBO’s Girls. After news that Community has been cancelled, the cast been filing their unemployment and seeking work elsewhere. It appears that Lena Dunham is hiring.

Jacobs won’t appear until episode five as Mimi-Rose, which is also the name of that episode. So it’s probably more than a cameo. From there, Gillian will stick around, though it’s unknown how big a part she’ll play. Maybe just watch the damn show, ok? Do you need to know everything ahead of time? IT’S ABOUT THE JOURNEY. GOD!

Donald Glover took a controversial turn in the early episodes of season 2 as Hannah’s boyfriend, ostensibly to combat criticism that the show lacked diversity. However, his appearance was so fleeting and inconsequential that all it did was fan the flames further.

Maybe Gillian Jacobs is joining because people complained there weren’t enough white girls being represented.

Dan Harmon‘s return to Community has made a big difference. While he was away, the show’s attempts to tickle the that little flap of skin at the base of our skulls that triggers warm, fuzzy nostalgia feelings were more of a punch than a tickle. Now that he’s back, they’re doing an episode entirely animated in the style of G.I. Joe and it doesn’t feel like a punch to the back of the head at all. Thanks goodness he and his tickly brain fingers are back.

It seems that NBC now knows that there is no Community without Dan Harmon. And knowing is important.

I Britta’d that one.

In Walk of Shame, Elizabeth Banks plays a young woman unaware of how doors work who embarks on an epic journey to get across town. After her friends drag her out to help get her groove back, she meets James Marsden and falls for his Pinocchio cheekbones and willingness to let her come at him with a knife. However, she finds herself having some difficulty getting to work the next morning when her car is towed and is forced to walk through the James Marsden’s terrible neighborhood. It’s filled with hookers, drug dealers, thugs, and child perverts. But, hey, that’s the price you have to pay if you want those nice exposed brick walls.

Sometimes excessive stress can cause intestinal problems like a demon that climbs out of your rectum and kills people. It is rare though.

Ken Marino stars in Bad Milo as Duncan, a stressed out guy who finds himself suffering from a vengeful butt-demon. When Activia is unable to help him with this issue, Duncan attempts to befriend the creature and keep its insatiable appetite at bay. Think Little Shop of Horrors meets the bathroom scene from Dumb and Dumber.

Gillian Jacobs Accepts Challenge To Act Believably In ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2′ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gillian-jacobs-accepts-challenge-to-act-believably-in-hot-tub-time-machine-2/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gillian-jacobs-accepts-challenge-to-act-believably-in-hot-tub-time-machine-2/#comments Fri, 07 Jun 2013 16:24:23 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=255242 It's the role every girl at Julliard dreams about.

They may have been separated by his frustrated, explosive, sometime-racist outbursts on the set of Community, but Gillian Jacobs and Chevy Chase will be reyooned on a set that knows how to treat a guy. The Julliard-trained Jacobs has joined the cast of Hot Tub Time Machine 2 in a role only described as the female lead. Chase will be reprising his role as the hot tub/time machine repairman, while Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, and Clark Duke reprise their roles.

As previously reported, newcomer Adam Scott will replace John Cusack because he just didn’t make very much sense in a movie about a time-traveling hot tub. (Deadline)

Gillian Jacobs is the complete package: Funny, attractive, and funny. Yes, you’re allowed to use “funny” twice when describing a woman’s characteristics. Jacobs—a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—is best known for her role on NBC’s hilarious and severely underrated series “Community.” Prior to scoring the part, she appeared in a number of small television and film roles, including a stint on the short-lived series “The Book of Daniel.”

Gillian Jacobs Joins Steve Carell’s Not NBC-Related ‘End Of The World’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gillian-jacobs-joins-steve-carrells-not-nbc-related-end-of-the-world/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gillian-jacobs-joins-steve-carrells-not-nbc-related-end-of-the-world/#comments Wed, 18 May 2011 00:43:34 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=212600 Gillian Jacobs ("Community") will join Steve Carell ("The Office") for Mandate's 'Seeking a Friend for the End of the World'. Will they do the secret NBC handshake?

Gillian Jacobs is the blonde girl from “Community.” She’ll join ex-Dunder Mifflin manager Steve Carell for Mandate’s Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. I’m sure they’ll have a lot of NBC stuff to talk about on the set, and they might even do the secret NBC handshake. (It’s the one from “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.”)

The plot involves an asteroid heading to earth, Keira Knightley and Carell on a journey to find Carell’s lost love before the world is destroyed, and a waitress they meet who’s tweaked out on ecstasy – which is where Jacobs comes in. Hopefully she won’t do the real drug while filming, because the “Fresh Prince” handshake is tricky to do on E. You know isn’t tricky, though? Getting a nice backrub.

Shooting for End of the World has already begun. The cast also includes Adam Brody and Rob Corddry. (Hollywood Reporter)

Sacha Baron Cohen is holding court to determine who will be in his latest movie The Dictator. The following actors will try to curry Cohen’s favor, and have their rivals… eliminated.

Anna FarisKristen Wiig and “Community” star Gillian Jacobs are all vying for the female lead. Wiig is doing so with awkward line readings and tiny plastic hands. However, Cohen and his producers are still looking around, so a three-way cat fight between them might be for naught. Well, you might be able to sell the DVD of the fight itself, at least.

Meanwhile, Jason Mantzoukas “The League“) is in negotiations to play the sidekick to Cohen’s lead. Apparently his ability to improvise, or “generate top-of-the-head make-’em-ups,” as theater people call it, is highly valued for this loosely scripted movie. The plot is described as “the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.” I’m sure Paramount is just wondering how big the merchandising potential will be, and whether or not we see a penis swinging around on-screen, up close.

Larry Charles (Borat, Bruno), an important member of the Cohen Crew, returns to direct.

‘Community’ Halloween Episode Preview http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-halloween-episode-preview/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-halloween-episode-preview/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This morning I have for you a preview of the upcoming Halloween episode of "Community." Zombies have taken over Greendale. The producers have also managed to make all the characters' costumes funny again, as well as indicative of their unique personalities. Jeff is so vain that he always goes as something effortlessly attractive. This year he's David Beckham. Brilliant. And wait until you see Senor Chang. "Community" is without a doubt one of the best shows on television, and it's perplexing to me that no one watches it. You and I might watch it, but everyone else is tuning into "The Big Bang Theory" and not DVRing the little college sitcom on NBC at the same time. Some affiliates across the country are even dropping it from their lineup due to the fact that no one in their city gives a crap. That is not a good sign, folks. Once affiliates start dropping programs it's not long before it gets yanked from the schedule altogether. Let's watch this Halloween episode and save this show from going the way of "Arrested Development." Check out the preview after the jump...

‘Community’ Christmas Episode Pulls a ‘Rudolph’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-christmas-episode-pulls-a-rudolph/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/community-christmas-episode-pulls-a-rudolph/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Community" creator Dan Harmon's Christmas wish just came true. No, not a third season, stupid. He gets to live his dream of creating an entirely animated episode of his sitcom. This season's Christmas episode of "Community" will be created in the pain-staking stop motion style of the Rankin/Bass animated specials we all grew up on. Harmon recounts how this opportunity presented itself. “It’s something that I’ve always wanted to do but, I never anticipated having the ability to do it,” he admits. But “Jeff Gaspin at NBC woke up one morning and thought "Community" should do an animated episode. I was like, ‘Well, that’s weird, because that’s the kind of stuff I’m usually suggesting and guys like him veto.’” Sounds awesome. Early buzz already has this (and the Halloween episode) topping last season's Paintball Episode. Sure, it will strain a few animators' eyes and backs, but I feel like it's worth it. Dibs on the Gillian Jacobs doll! (EW)
