Right now I'm just excited to be part of a tremendous cast and consistently smart as hell writing. I played 3 different 'Sanjay's in 2007, so the fact that I get to play a strange, but not one-dimensional character is pure effin' joy!

Thanks dicepants! My favorite movie is "Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark". I can watch it any time, any place.

I prefer everything with a whip.

Dan Harmon, the creator of our show is a genius. He saw Donald and I do an improvised rap in an interview and then wrote us a beautiful, non-sensical rap a few days later. That's how the tags started!

Thanks man. I love this aspect of our show. If you look around, I don't think there's a more diverse ensemble on television. But we don't let that define any character.

Thanks! 1) So many to choose from! Though it's gonna be hard to top the scene at the restaurant with Joel McHale from the last episode. The fact that I got to give a long, strange monologue that ends with "pooped my pants", is a dream come true. Anything with Star-Burns in it makes me laugh. 2) I'm sure Dan Harmon is already working on it. 3) Running, trying to make my wife laugh, reading books and watching way too much sports. Go Bulls!

I think it helped! When I auditioned for Community, the producers actually recognized me from that commercial. People still call me 'Butt-dialer' randomly on the street!

Fact: If I see you, yes. Like Homer Simpson, I love beer. I'm reading a book right now all about it. Guinness is probably my favorite.
