In Community (Season 3 premieres Sept. 22 on NBC), Alison Brie plays Annie, an less creepy Tracy Flick-like character who excels at everything. So what do you do to dethrone such an overachieving character? You cast an Asian American actress. Specifically, Irene Choi.
You may recognize Choi’s face from some shows such as Entourage, Greek, and Wilfred, but in Community she will give Annie a run for her money as an equally ambitious (if not more) student who will probably kill to be the best. Think of her as Sunshine Corazon to Rachel Berry on Glee — except more tolerable and funnier.
