There’s something about Alison Brie that attracts men like moths to a flame. It has to do with a rare-in-Hollywood combination of her smoldering good looks, comedic goofiness and down-to-earth attitude. She first came to our attention in Mad Men, but it’s really in Community that her talents shine through. We’re thrilled that it’s back on air.

San Francisco’s popular comedy festival, SF Sketchfest, is expanding further into music. Now in its 13th year, the two-week-long festival features 12 “music meets comedy” events. At the top of the bill is the return of Maya Rudolph’s Prince cover duo, Princess, while actress Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men), also a Sketchfest veteran, is bringing her harmonizing trio, The Girls.
Huge thanks to Ray over at Simply Gillian for this gorgeous new photo of Alison and the cast of Community!

Are you guys done now?
We’re done – I’m just walking off the lot now. And it’s so strange, because they’ve already broken down the whole set. We’re only shooting these thirteen episode seasons, so they tear down the entire thing. It’s so sad.
And they’ll build it again next year?
Right, right. Or maybe never again. Maybe that’s why it’s sad.
So you’re talking to me instead of celebrating?
Yeah, you’re helping me through the pain.
How does it feel to have the gang back together?
It’s great. I’ve seen the first episode and some of the other ones and they’re just great. It’s so wonderful having Dan [Harmon] back. The material is excellent. I think it’s better than it’s ever been, which is super strange for the fifth season of a show. Having done last season without Dan, I think that everyone was really rejuvenated to have him back and to be back at all. Every year we think that we’re not coming back, especially last year, so there was general excitement just to be back and have Dan back and see what he was going to come up with. And as we shot the season, the material just got better and better.
