The Community cast audition for Dean Pelton’s latest movie

Jim Rash (Dean Pelton in Community) and Nat Faxon (Ben and Kate) have a new movie out next month in the US called The Way, Way Back. However, apparently (i.e. not at all), the cast of Community auditioned for Rash’s role in the movie. Watch the vid below to see Gillian Jacobs, Joel McHale, Danny Pudi and Yvette Nicole Brown (and Will Forte, from Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock) in action.
