Alison Brie is pulling double duty this season, starring in two critically acclaimed shows. One is a compelling drama and the other a chuckle-loaded comedy. It must be quite a challenge transforming from Pete Campbell’s doting wife on Mad Men to uptight college student Annie on Community. I wonder if she ever gets them mixed up? Does she ever arrive on Mad Men as her Annie character, giving her husband sass instead of a neat scotch? No, I imagine she’d get a slap across the face from Matthew Weiner for such insubordination. And if it were vice versa on the set of Community, you’d better believe Chevy Chase would berate her until tears rolled down from those big, blue eyes. We could hope it would all be in good fun, but back in the day Chevy used to make actresses cry for sport.
A word from Alison: “When I was in college and growing up I was like, ‘It’s comedy for me! I’m so funny!’”
Take it easy there, Alison. You’ve proven yourself as a dramatic actress, but we still haven’t seen enough of the sitcom to be convinced of your comedic chops. Talk to the writers and see if they can work in some pratt falls and spit takes, and possibly a bottle of seltzer water. Then you’re sure to get our vote.
