Alison Brie joins 'Scream 4': Can we get a 'Community' serial killer episode, please?

She’ll play Neve Campbell’s character’s ambitious/jealous personal assistant, according to The Hollywood Reporter. With those large eyes that can either read sweet and innocent or crazy, that sounds like another perfect casting — right up there with Adam Brody as a rookie cop who received part of his training from CSI.

As thrilled as I am by Brie’s first blockbuster role, I’m even more looking forward to the Community episode I expect to capitalize on her involvement with the Scream franchise — and not in a pointless BonesAvatar way. I mean a full-submersion, serial killer-on-campus episode in the vein of the paintball masterpiece, “Modern Warfare,” which was, hands down, one of the funniest half hours on TV last season. Just think of the possibilities with Abed (Danny Pudi): He’d use past film plots to anticipate the killer’s next move. And he’d definitely be a suspect. (Along with the dean.)

Scream 4 hits theaters in April 2011. Let’s go for a two-parter during May Sweeps. Who’s with me?
