Alison Brie Talks TOY’S HOUSE, COMMUNITY Season 4, the Picture of Her as Captain America, THE LEGO MOVIE, GET A JOB, and More

     February 7, 2013


One of the many films to premiere at Sundance this year was director Jordan Vogt-Roberts offbeat coming-of-age comedy Toy’s House.  Written by Chris Galletta, the film is about three unhappy teens (Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias) “who flee to the wilderness where they build a makeshift house and live off the land as masters of their own destiny.”  Toy’s House also stars Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Megan Mullally, and Mary Lynn Rajskub.

Shortly after the premiere I sat down with Alison Brie for an extended interview.  We talked about her reaction to the photoshopped picture of her as Captain America, the Sundance experience, how she got involved with Toy’s House, what it’s like to play “Ron Swanson’s Daughter,” the new season of Community and how it feels without Dan Harmon, and more.  In addition, we talked about her role in the upcoming comedy Get a Job, pilot season, if she would consider doing another TV series once Community ends, the process of performing voice work on the upcoming animated film The Lego Movie, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
