If you’ve read a single post on Warming Glow over the last month, then you likely already know that “Community” is set to return tonight on NBC. Here’s the funny thing about “Community,” though: For a show that’s such a huge phenomenon on the Internet, most people don’t actually know much about the actors behind some of their favorite characters. With the exception of Joel McHale and Chevy Chase, the cast of “Community” was largely unknown before the show debuted in 2009. Most of the actors, however, have been working in various roles in television and movies for years. Few, however, would recognize their pre-”Community” work.
I spent a few hours doing some sleuthing, however, and came up with 25 Facts about the pre-show careers of the cast of “Community” that most of us weren’t aware of. Until now. I don’t know how much most of this will change your perception of the actors, but at the very least, fans of 90s hip-hop (DANGER?) may see Yvette Nicole Brown in a completely different light.
