She'll play... Alison Brie, an actress who has been cast on a community-college set comedy by Dan Harmon
Okay, now this is starting to get out of hand.
Another Community alum will share the screen with Ken Jeong on Dr. Ken, it was announced Monday. Alison Brie will appear in the season finale, joining the previously announced Dan Harmon. Harmon, of course, is the creator of Community, the show that served as Jeong’s former TV home.
In “Ken’s Big Audition,” airing March 31 on ABC, Brie will play… Alison Brie, an actress who has been cast on Harmon’s new comedy that’s set at a community college. (Let the meta wash over you.) After seeing Ken land big laughs at an open-mic night, Harmon asks Ken to audition for a role on the show. Alison acts opposite Ken in his audition, and soon becomes “uncomfortable with Ken’s bold acting choices.”
Next, Brie will star in Netflix female-wrestling comedy GLOW, which debuts in June.
Jeong has lured many of his former castmates to his family/workplace comedy. Jonathan Banks will guest-star as Ken’s old professor on Friday’s episode. Gillian Jacobs and Yvette Nicole Brown appeared last month, while season 1 included guest spots by Joel McHale, Danny Pudi, and Jim Rash.
The countdown to Donald Glover and Chevy Chase is on. Same for Starburns.
Dr. Ken airs Fridays at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
