Gillian Jacobs talks Community and Julliard on the Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins

5 Mar

Paul F. Tompkins Speakeasy series where the drinks are flowing as much as the conversation is a TV Ate My Wardrobe favorite, as is this week’s guest Gillian Jacobs. The Community star talks about why she got into acting (it’s kinda heartbreaking, but she seems over it), the rigorous training at Julliard and why she was on probation there and her foray into independent film making. She also discusses the pop culture references on Community and which ones she didn’t get when they first shot a now iconic episode. They also cover the return of Dan Harmon and Jacobs reveals what she wouldn’t do again. It’s a really fun conversation and there’s a good rapport between Jacobs and Tompkins.
