While we’re all waiting for Community to come back on the air, star Gillian Jacobs has been busy padding out her movie schedule. The latest addition for the comedienne is writer/director Steven Brill’s Walk of Shame, a picture that already boasts Elizabeth Banks, James Marsden and Ethan Suplee. The picture centers on a news anchor (Banks) who finds herself out on the street after a drunken one-night stand with no money, identification or means of travel. Her shameful trek across Los Angeles is fraught with misadventures as she attempts to make it to a career-changing job interview. Jacobs will play the protag’s best friend. Hit the jump for more.
THR reported that Jacobs will star in Walk of Shame along with other cast members Willie Garson and Bill Burr. She recently wrapped the horror comedy Milo from writer/director Jacob Vaughan, which centers on a man plagued by a demon living in his intestines. Her other recent features include the dark comedy Teddy Bears and the Don Scardino comedy, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, starring Steve Carell, Jim Carrey, Steve Buscemi and Olivia Wilde. Jacobs is currently filming the indie crime thriller, The Lookalike, starring Justin Long, Jerry O’Connell and Gina Gershon.
Jacobs and the rest of the Greendale crew will be seen on the small screen when Community returns to NBC starting February 7th.
