With the seventh and final season of Mad Men off to a great start, seeing how much Don, Joan, Peggy and the gang have changed over the years is more obvious than ever. One of the most dramatic transformations of all is that of Trudy Campbell, played by the talented Alison Brie, who goes from being head-over-heels in love with her husband Pete Campbell, to kicking him out of their family home in season 6. We caught up with the actress, currently starring alongside Adam Scott in a series of hilarious videos for Smirnoff, to find out what it was like developing Trudy as a character, and how she grew from year to year.
“It’s really interesting working on a TV show like this where everything that happens to the character is a constant surprise,” Brie tells InStyle.com exclusively. “I think Trudy started out seeming very superficial and driven by money and appearances. We definitely saw real growth as she struggles with trying to conceive and start a family, which makes you realize that she has more at stake in this life, and has deeper wants and needs than it appeared.”
The members of the Greendale Gang devise a scheme to reclaim their beloved community college.

Episode 5.13 – Basic Sandwich

Lest all those utterances of “six seasons and a movie” be lost in time, like tears in Internet comment boards, some serious discussion has begun about fulfilling Community’s blood oath by whatever means necessary. Last week, Dan Harmon told HitFix he believed in the “shamanism” inherent in the throwaway joke that’s since become the show’s mantra, believing he’s now predestined, through powers beyond his control, to not only see the series through that sixth season, but also to make the movie. “If the movie has to be made out of clay and duct tape in my basement, then that’s how the movie will be made, because there has to be closure,” Harmon said, sounding, as always, both invigorated and a little insane. “The title of the book about the show is not Community, An Interesting Journey Into A Show No One Ever Watched. The title of the book is obviously going to be, Six Seasons And A Movie. So it’s already over.”
Now TV Guide says there has been some actual talk about that movie—and particularly about who might also be there, overseeing things in Harmon’s basement—reporting that there’s been some consideration about bringing in Fast & Furious director Justin Lin to helm the fated film. Lin, of course, directed several Community episodes, including the episode that actually made paintball cool again (without saying that out loud). And if he’s unavailable, the article reminds that the show also has former executive producers Joe and Anthony Russo, who recently graduated to Captain America, as well as Super Troopers director Jay Chandrasekhar. So, plenty of people with feature film experience for destiny to lay its icy hand upon.
