Joel McHale revealed the Community cast is all in for a reunion movie! On behalf of Q Mixers, the actor, who played Jeff Winger on the NBC sitcom, opened up about the movie plans and how that viral table read, which benefitted pandemic relief, put the plans in motion.
“If you had told me a little over a year ago that there was a chance of a Community movie, I would like, ‘Yeah, maybe,’ but after that table read, we were like, ‘Oh, hey, look, we’re all here and we all like each other!'” Joel said in an interview to HollywoodLife.
The former The Soup host admitted they “just need the money” to make the movie happen now. “To make movies, you need — no matter how you slice it — you’re going to need a little bit of money to make it,” he said.
Joel McHale added that he can’t believe how successful Community has been since it went off the air after its sixth season in 2015, although it was always kind of about to be canceled, it had good success on the streamers. “I was just like, ‘God bless,’” he concluded.
