Donald Glover is not in the “Community” cast group chat
The ‘Community’ fandom received a rare treat!
The cast of the hit NBC sitcom reunited on the “Darkest timeline, A podcast hosted by two of the show’s former stars, Joel McHale and Ken Jeong. Eight of the original actors filmed the virtual reunion after a tabletop reading of an older episode, according to ET Online.
Gillian Jacobs, Donald Glover, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie and Jim Rash have joined creator Dan Harmon. Chevy Chase was notably absent from the podcast. (Her character was killed off in season five and, therefore, was not involved in the reading that spurred the reunion.)
On the podcast, the gang remembered their unique synergy and made a few jokes in the process. But when Brown asked Jacobs to share a video in the group chat, Glover had a rude awakening: he’s not there.
“Is there a group chat?” I am not in this group chat ”, Glover said. “I literally, after that, I was literally going to say, ‘We should have a group talk.’ Is there no group chat ?! “
Brown said everyone in the group thought Glover was too busy. This is not an unfair assumption. Glover’s abrupt departure from the series sparked controversy among his die-hard fans, but turned out to be a positive career development. Glover won five Grammys as rapper Childish Gambino and two Emmys for his series “Atlanta”.
“So you didn’t all put me in this group chat” He asked, as everyone laughed. “Wow, that’s pretty funny. Then I was going to say to myself, “I should start a group discussion. If I had started one, would you have told me there was already one?
Jeong joked that no, they wouldn’t have told him. The table read of the “cooperative polygraphy” of season five will drop on Youtube May 18 at 2:00 p.m. PT. The reading will raise funds for World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods by José Andrés, in addition to donations made by the “Darkest Timeline Podcast”.
