Joel McHale and Alison Brie star in NBC's "Community" (Thursdays @ 8pm) as Jeff Winger and Annie Edison respectively. We had the chance to have a quick phone conversation with this dynamic duo via phone last week.LAist: You've mentioned ["Community" series creator] Dan Harmon (see our vid interview with him) a few times in past interviews and I'm just wondering what it's like to work with him and you've also mentioned some of the writers coming and bringing things by to you. Do you have any kind of input what happens with Jeff and Annie? Maybe you could illuminate this a little bit.

Joel McHale: I - as far as like us putting input into the story or something, I - no, not at all. I trust Dan implicitly. I mean, he's - I would follow him into any battle because his - the things they come up with every week are so fantastic.

And so I don't know where it's going and I'm always excited to be - what we read the next week at the table read.
