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)

Keira Knightley Bra

That’s right. Keira Knightley is cashing checks from the Syfy now. Though it won’t entail she roll around in cake with Deborah Gibson or go toe-to-toe with a Piranhceratops.

Knightley will loan her voice to Tinkerbell in the upcoming mini-series “Neverland.” Syfy’s live-action retelling of the classic story features other real non-Richard Grieco actors as well. Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins, Charles Dance, Raoul Trujillo and Charlie Rowe have all signed on for roles.

The story follows Rowe’s Peter, and his group of pickpocket friends. Rhys Ifans plays their mentor Jimmy Hook, who has them snatch a magical orb that sends them to Neverland. There they encounter magical tree spirits and pirates who are on the hunt for the secret to eternal youth.

I’m surprised to hear that there are none of Syfy’s horrific, hybrid monsters appearing in the series. J.M. Barrie’s original featured an alligator. It must be killing the execs at Syfy not to splice it with a snapping turtle or wild boar. At the very least, they could make it humongous. (Deadline)
