Vulture.com — Gillian Jacobs is an emoji enthusiast. She often accents her tweets with those tiny little graphics, from simple smiley faces to pizza to piles of cartoon dung. But just how fluent in emoji is the Community star? We put her to the test by translating some of the most famous lines from movies, TV, and literature into emoji, and then challenged Jacobs to translate them back into English. The pressure was on, and although she hit some stumbling blocks, Jacobs did shockingly well! Want to see if you can do better than she did? Watch the video below! (Or should we say, “cartoon eyes” “TV icon” “arrow pointing down”?)
I’ve been sending some people some confusing messages.
Backstage.com — “I’m not in the full sausage factory,” smiles Gillian (hard “G”) Jacobs when Backstage’s photographer asks if she’s immersed in awards season madness. She might have added “yet,” were she not so modest. Though it is her five seasons as Chuck Taylors–loving, liberal agenda–spouting firebrand Britta Perry of NBC’s “Community” that have made her small-screen famous, the six films awaiting release are what will take her to the next level.
Though “Community” has earned some of its best reviews from fans and critics alike for its current season, the show continues to struggle in the ratings, something Jacobs attributes to modern viewing sensibilities. “I feel like we’re Generation 2.0 for TV where our viewership is not sitting down at eight o’clock on Thursday night,” she says. “A lot of people watch ‘Community,’ but DVR viewings only count if you watch within a certain time. Binge-watching is also becoming a thing, where people watch six in a row. You’re really not counted then.”
There is Perry in Jacobs and vice versa. “I like that she tries hard, makes mistakes, and is often wrong, but she doesn’t give up and her heart’s in the right place,” Jacobs says. “Those things are very relatable. We’re all slight hypocrites who fall short of our ideals. I like that she keeps on keeping on. I just hope I have a bit more self-awareness and more of a sense of humor than Britta!”
While Jacobs raves about the on-set atmosphere of “Community”— “We actually like each other and miss each other when we’re not together!”—she’s also currently conflicted by film offers she feels she can’t turn down. “I just want to be in the mix for projects I want to work on,” she says, including the Ed Helms–created Yahoo! Web series “Tiny Commando.” Then again, Jacobs notes that she’s “a workaholic. I just feel best when working. But I’ve realized that you need life experiences, too. I’ll get that.”
Backstage.com – Gillian Jacobs graces our cover this week, and she chats with Backstage about her role in NBC’s “Community” and her time at Juilliard. Check out a sneak peek from the feature below!
Gillian Jacobs on Her Busy Year - Fans of Gillian Jacobs will have a lot to celebrate in 2014, with six feature films coming up. Jacobs breaks down what we can expect from her in all of them.
“Walk of Shame” (out April 25) - “Elizabeth [Banks] is an L.A. reporter who gets stranded. I’m her best friend, and James [Marsden] is a guy who’s had a one-night stand with her and is helping me look for her as she’s going on her misadventures. I admire Elizabeth hugely. She’s a wonderful actress; believable in any genre you throw her into.”
“Hot Tub Time Machine 2” (out Dec. 25) - “I play Adam Scott’s fiancée. He’s a new addition to the cast. I knew it was going to be an awesome group. They did not disappoint.”
“Black and White” - “I play the idiot girlfriend of Kevin Costner’s best friend and law partner [Bill Burr]. I had such a wonderful time shooting this film and was so happy to work with Bill Burr again. Everyone else had to be really serious with lots of crying scenes, and I got to be a total idiot.”
“Life Partners” - “I’m one of two best friends; one straight—that’s me—and one lesbian—that’s Leighton [Meester]. We’d never met before, but I really think we have that best friend chemistry. This film has such a great supporting cast, and it was so refreshing to do a movie written and directed by women.”
“No Way Jose” - “This one’s basically a cameo. The amazingly talented Adam Goldberg wrote, directed, and starred in it. I’m his crazy ex-girlfriend, so I basically have one fun, drunk, crawling-on-the-floor-and-trying-to-get-him-back scene.”
“The Lookalike” - “This is a drama but was almost like a soap opera for me, because I play two parts. One character isn’t in the movie very long, and then I’m the look-alike for myself. I don’t know if I pulled it off. We’ll have to see!”
