Exclusive: Yvette Nicole Brown gives updates on Community revival and Rick & Morty!
Yvette Nicole Brown has been the woman about town since her breakthrough mainstream role on the cult favorite NBC sitcom Community, landing various key roles in acclaimed hits such as The Mayor, Elena of Avalor and CBS’ Mom. Like the rest of her cast, she is definitely ready for a reunion with Community‘s creator Dan Harmon!
While attending the premiere for Disney+’s upcoming family adventure Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, Brown took a moment to chat with ComingSoon.net, where she gave an update on Harmon’s work on the long-in-development Community revival film, as well as her hopes to work with him in other capacities.
“I hit up Dan Harmon more often to get a role on Rick and Morty,” Brown said. “That’s where the money is, Rick and Morty is going to last forever. I don’t even care who I play, I could be the black woman in the corner saying, ‘Hi, hi.’ I don’t care what it is, I just want to do a voice on there. I know that Dan’s going to write the Community movie someday and when he does, we’re all going to show up, whenever it is, we’re ready to do it just like you guys are ready for it.”
Brown played the lovable single mother Shirley Bennet in a main role capacity for the first five seasons, as well as a recurring role on the Yahoo-revived sixth season, but despite her frequency of working in the voice-over world, she has yet to make her debut on Harmon’s acclaimed Adult Swim series. The sci-fi comedy hit has so far seen guest appearances from Joel McHale as Hemorrhage in the second episode of the third season “Rickmancing the Stone,” Gillian Jacobs as Supernova in the fourth episode of Season 3 “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender” and Jim Rash in the seventh episode of Season 2 “Big Trouble in Little Sanchez.”
A film revival of the NBC hit sitcom has been discussed for nearly six years since its original conclusion on the primetime network, with a recent update coming at Vulture Festival in November where Harmon stated that he’s been trying to work on it but is uncertain about the project, as he’s unsure whether he can live up to the expectations of fans and even his stars, who are all very ready and excited to return for more.
