Community star Yvette Nicole Brown thought NBC show was funny from reading first script
Yvette Nicole Brown has been on TV shows opposite Hugh Laurie, William Shatner and Larry David, and in movies opposite Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Hudson, Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Robert Downey Jr., and Gerald Butler.
Heck, she started her career by signing a contract as a Motown recording artist.
But when my daughter saw her in the cast of Community alongside Chevy Chase—who she loved in Christmas Vacation—all that mattered was—she was on Drake & Josh!
AUDIO EXCERPT: “I knew that Joel McHale was very, very smart and very funny. And I read the script. When your body has an involuntary reaction to something on a written page–it was like a no-brainer. Then you find out Chevy Chase is involved, the Russo Brothers directed it–okay, I’m in. It was an easy decision to make.”
So Yvette Nicole Brown—star of Drake & Josh AND the new NBC Thursday night sitcom Community, airing Thursday nights at 8 p.m.—welcome to Mr. Media.
