POP POP! Community has been off the air since 2015, and we miss the quirky group of community college classmates. The sitcom that started as a Spanish study group full of misfits ended up spawning six seasons of television (and hopefully a movie.)

We got quotable lines

While we wait for a class reunion, here’s a bit about what the cast has been up to since the sixth season wrapped on Yahoo over five years ago.

Joel McHale (Jeff Winger)

Since his time as Greendale Community College’s favorite sarcastic, narcissistic, and often-shirtless lawyer (without an actual degree), McHale has acted in a number of shows including The X-Files, Difficult People, Santa Clarita Diet, Dr. Ken (with Community’s Ken Jeong), and Stargirl. In 2016, he starred as an annoyed Gen X magazine editor working with a crew of millennials in the short-lived Sitcom The Great Indoors.

The witty former host of The Soup has also racked up an impressive amount of hosting gigs including Card Sharks, the Tiger King reunion special, and of course the aptly named Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale. And of course, we could never forget his episode on RuPaul’s Drag Race where he appeared to annoy the crap out of Michelle Visage. If there is a phrase to describe Mr. McHale it is “booked and busy.”

Gillian Jacobs (Britta Perry)

On Community, Gillian played the overly woke Britta Perry, the gang’s supposed moral compass, who typically caused more problems than she solved. Since starring as the problematic activist, Gillian has helmed numerous movies including Life of the Party alongside Melissa McCarthy, Netflix’s comedy Ibiza, the horror film Come Play. She also starred in the Judd Apatow’s down-to-earth comedy series Love with Paul Rust among her myriad of television roles. She appeared on Dr. Ken, Rick and Morty, and of course convinced me to buy countless cans of Diet Coke in her pre-trailers movie theater ads.

Danny Pudi (Abed Nadir)

Abed of “Troy and Abed in the Moooooooooooorning” fame. Community’s neurotic, film-obsessed nerd was always pushing the show into more meta territory (hence the six seasons and a movie line). Since the shuttering of his beloved community college talk show, Danny Pudi has been especially adept at snagging voiceover acting. He voiced Brainy Smurf (shocking) in Smurfs: The Lost Village, Tiny in Harvey Street Kids, and Huey in DuckTales. He also appeared on Dr. Ken (sensing a trend?), and according to Instagram, is training for marathons and still looks like he’s 24 despite being 42.

Yvette Nicole Brown (Shirley Bennett)

Before dipping out of the show’s sixth and final season, Yvette joined her classmates around the study table as Shirley, the sugary sweet, usually kind, but sometimes judgmental Bible thumper. (Although it turns out she really knows how to party too.) Yvette, like Shirley is also a HARD WORKER. Since leaving Community, she’s appeared in over 35 projects. Everything from voiceover roles in Elena of Avalor and Lego Star Wars to reoccurring characters in Mom and The Mayor. She hosted Talking Dead, guest judged on The Masked Singer, and you guessed it, appeared on Dr. Ken.

Alison Brie (Annie Edison)

Annie may be the youngest of the group, but she’s also the uptight overachiever with something to prove, a role that Alison has stepped into often while she waits for the Community movie to start filming. Mrs. Dave Franco has appeared in number of films including How to Be Single, The Disaster Artist (with her hubby), and The Post. This past year she starred as a pair of anal, power-hungry menaces in Promising Young Woman and Happiest Season. On the television side, she recently concluded a problematic role in BoJack Horseman, and wrapped on the critically acclaimed female wrestling comedy GLOW (which may also get a film?) She wrote and starred in Horse Girl in 2020, as well as in her husband’s directorial debut The Rental. She too was in Dr. Ken.

Donald Glover (Troy Barnes)

On Community, Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino played the lovably dumb jock (an OG himbo if you will.) Since dipping out of the show mid-Season 5 however, Donald not only grew a beard and had three kids, but also transitioned to more serious projects. On the film side, Donald’s jumped into major franchises like Spider-Man, Star Wars, and The Lion King, while over in TV Land, he’s scooped up multiple Emmys and Golden Globes for his hit show Atlanta.

As Childish Gambino, he’s released two new albums and won five Grammys (although sadly not one for his fake Black Justin Bieber song from Atlanta.) Next up, Donald will be teaming up with…checks notes…Malia Obama over at Amazon for a massive producing deal and starring alongside Phoebe Waller-Bridge in a Mr. & Mrs. Smith remake.

Ken Jeong (Ben Chang)

Finally we get to Dr. Ken himself. After he was an actual real life doctor, but before he was Dr. Ken, Ken Jeong played Benjamin Franklin Chang aka Ben aka Senor Chang aka Kevin aka El Tigre Chino, the Spanish teacher turned evil mastermind turned mole person living in the college’s air ducts.

Since Community’s end, Ken has starred in films such as The Duff, Goosebumps 2, My Spy, and Scoob! He also fought his way into the cast of Crazy Rich Asians. Outside of the titular role in Dr. Ken, Ken Jeong has appeared on Fresh Off the Boat and Magnum PI. Perhaps his greatest work to date however is shouting delightfully unhinged guesses with Jenny McCarthy as to the identities of The Masked Singers.

Chevy Chase (Pierce Hawthorne)

Before Chevy exited the show in Season 4 due to conflicts with Community’s creator Dan Harmon, he played the eccentric, arrogant, and extremely unpolitically correct millionaire Pierce Hawthorne. While Chevy Chase was the show’s biggest star prior to airing, he has appeared in only a handful of projects since. His films include Hot Tub Time Machine 2, the National Lampoon sequel Vacation, and 2019’s The Last Laugh with Richard Dreyfuss. Recently he spent five weeks in the hospital and then told reporters the television industry is full of “shitheads,” so Chevy is alive and well it seems.

Jim Rash (Craig Pelton)

Dean Dong! Jim Rash’s Dean Pelton was such a hit during his appearances in the first two seasons that he was promoted to a season regular in season 3. He spent most of the series trying to legitimize the chaotic community college, find excuses to wear costumes, and flirt with Jeff. While an actor, Jim is also the screenwriter of The Descendants and The Way Way Back, and since 2015, has worked behind the scenes on both Thoroughbreds and Downhill. He’s also snatched voice roles in shows like Mike Tyson Mysteries, DuckTales, and Star Wars Resistance, and has popped up in episodes of Angie Tribeca and Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Oh, and of course, he was also in Dr. Ken.
