Sooooo meaty! Here is Joel McHale (Community, The Soup, Spy Kids 4, Bill Nye The Science Guy) as bank manager Mr. Jacks in Spiderman 2.


Thanks for the submission, generaldopeness!

Danny Pudi can be seen these days as the pop-culture obsessed Abed Nadir on Community, but in 2006 he appeared in 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls as Raj, one of the staff members at the Yale Daily News.

Thanks to everyone who submitted this one! 

POP POP! It’s a find from across the pond! Luke Youngblood recently took a paintball bomb for the team on NBC’s Community as the enigmatic Magnitude, but back in 2001 and 2002, he attended Hogwarts as Lee Jordan in the first two Harry Potter movies.

Before crying his way into our hearts as the lovable ex-jock Troy Barnes on Community, Donald Glover appeared briefly in two episodes of 30 Rock - once as a TGS intern, and later as a gay member of a graduating class being treated to a commencement speech from Tracy. Both appearances were probably due to the fact that he used to write for the series before he got involved with Community.

Thanks to lollercoaster for the submission!


Blink and You Miss It Moment: Cougar Town’s Dan Byrd and Busy Phillips appeared on Community. :D


How many of you guys spotted these famous faces in last night’s episode of Community? 

The music video for Aerosmith’s Cryin’ features a couple of familiar faces, including Alicia Silverstone (known primarily for the 90s film Clueless) as the female lead through the video, with an appearance by Josh Holloway (of Lost fame) as a diner patron and thief, making his appearance around 3:30.

Before opting to head to Greendale Community College as adult learner Shirley Bennett in Community, Yvette Nicole Brown worked as an unnamed secretary at a greeting card company in the (seriously fantastic - everyone should watch it) movie (500) Days of Summer

A truly British show, The IT Crowd is about your standard nerds, and it’s been really successful across seas and has a decent following in America. However, when a network attempted to create an adaption of it for American viewers, it was a disaster and never made it past the pilot episode. Who starred as the main “Standard Nerd,” Roy? No other the Community’s Jeff Winger and host of The Soup, Joel McHale.

Thanks to fahndi for the tip!

You might know Yvette Nicole Brown as Shirley on NBC’s Community, but from 2004-2007 she was Helen on Nickelodeon’s Drake and Josh.

Thanks to Ben, our super special sibling/ISAFF contributor, for the submission!

You may know Ken Jeong from The Hangover or Community, but you probably don’t know him as an improv student alongside Michael Scott in an early episode of The Office.

BONUS: The Daily Show's Wyatt Cenac chilling in the background. Thanks to Pete for pointing that out! 

Nice find, bushparty!

Many of you probably remember this classic T-Mobile commercial regarding the importance of a cell phone that doesn’t accidentally butt-dial everyone in your contact list when you sit down, but how many of you remember the butt-dialing culprit as Community's Danny Pudi?

Joel McHale, most commonly known for hosting The Soup and starring as Jeff Winger on Community (also for his appearances on Will & Grace and Bill Nye), had a one time guest appearance on Pushing Daisies as a murdered dog breeder with four wives. 

Thanks to teatran for the submission!

"Human Being" Jim Rash can be seen as the hilariously awkward Dean Pelton on NBC’s Community these days, but in 2004 he played a nervous passenger on the plane to Paris next to Rachel in the Friends finale.

Before he was Abed on Community, Danny Pudi was one of Dale’s Purity Pledge Brothers on the first season of Greek.

Thanks to colormelauren for the submission!

Woah! We knew that Glee and Community had some really startling similarities but we did not expect to see Principal Figgins (Iqbal Theba) playing Abed’s dad on this episode of Community!

Nice find, kristinislost!
