     May 10, 2012

The study group wouldn’t be the same, or would not have even formed, if it weren’t for Jeff Winger’s desire to get with Britta. Each one of the characters on the show bring something wonderfully unique to the group, but Jeff clearly is the leader, though that hasn’t always been the case.  Now we’re just a couple of episodes away from the season finale of Community, and it’s been pretty up and down for the whole Greendale crew.  Not only have they dealt with death and the Blanket/Pillow war, but the entire cast and crew had to deal with a long hiatus in between this third season.

A few weeks ago Collider got the chance to speak with several of the actors from Community.  We got the chance to sit down with Joel McHale, the jokester, who not only talked about the hiatus but the future of the group and the great guest stars they got to work with this half of the season.   Hit the jump to watch the interview.

  • Talking to reporters who haven’t watched the show
  • Jeff and Shirley moments
  • “I don’t think what we’re doing [in the show] is odd or niché.”
  • Any hiatus references in the show
  • Dreams of a Blade Runner version of Community
  • “Parody” episodes, Law & Order episode
  • The Civil War-like episode (Pillows and Blanket episodes)
  • The character death (Starburns)
  • Talking even more about the Law & Order episode
  • Joking about getting guest stars then talking about the real guest stars
  • Who Joel would want as a guest star on the show
  • Jeff’s growth throughout Community
  • Señor Chang
  • Jeff, a younger version of Chevy Chase?
  • Will they ever graduate?
  • If the third season was the last season, would the season-ender be a good closer
