** Dino Stamatopoulos [[http://www.ew.com/article/2012/04/27/community-law-order-death expressed discomfort]] with playing Star-Burns, citing the amount of hours required to wait on set, his dislike of having to be touched so often so that the make-up for his character could be applied, difficulty with learning his (limited) lines acting, annoyance with Joel [=McHale=] (specifically regarding a conversation about Stamatopoulos' teeth), and feeling like there wasn't really much to the character. He also expressed anger when Dan Harmon was fired from the show following Season 3, and refused to reprise the role until Harmon was eventually brought back on for Season 5.

** Several of Donald Glover's songs as ChildishGambino have lyrics that can be interpreted, if not outright stating, that he wants to leave the show.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorSharedBackground: A number of incidental details about actors transfer to their characters. For example, both Abed and Danny Pudi are half-Polish on their mother's side; while Troy, like Donald Glover, was raised a Jehovah's Witness. Annie mentions her birthday as being in late December, which might mean that she shares Alison Brie's birthday (December 29th).

* HeyItsThatGuy: The show advertises itself this way.
** One commercial specifically referred to Ken Jeong (Senor Chang) as "that guy from ''{{The Hangover}}''."
*** Apparently he teaches Spanish when he's not [[RoleModels commanding an army of LARPers]].
** The actor who plays Abed's dad also plays the principal on [[DuelingShows Dueling Show]] Series/{{Glee}}.
--->'''Jeff:''' ''(upon seeing him approaching)'' "[[RealitySubtext Holy... war.]]"
** [[Series/TheDailyShow Senior Community College Correspondent John Oliver]].
** The accounting teacher/debate coach is [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Wayne Jarvis]]!
** Leonard is McNulty from the Twilight Zone episode, ''A kind of stopwatch'' (who was just as obnoxious as Leonard.)
** Donald Glover (Troy) is from moderately well known online comedy troupe Derrickcomedy, creators of such [=YouTube=] classics as "Bro Rape" and"Spelling Bee".
*** For alternative hip-hop fans, it's more of a HeyItsThatVoice - or at least it would be if ChildishGambino[[note]]"Donald Glover" transformed by a "Music/WuTangClan name generator" online[[/note]] didn't openly identify himself as Donald Glover and repeatedly reference his role as Troy in his songs. Dude can rhyme a ''lot'' harder than "donde-esta-la-biblioteca".
*** The rest of Derrickcomedy also cameo as a sketch group that feeds Pierce movie riff jokes in season 1.
** Danny Pudi (Abed) was in several commercials before doing this show, from [=McDonald's=] snack wraps to the Blackberry "butt dialing". He has even appeared as an annoyed customer in a Walgreens training video.
** Wait, how did [[MadMen Trudy Campbell]] get here? Why is she nineteen? Shouldn't she be, like, seventy? And why is she Jewish?
*** Oh my god, you can't just ask people why they're Jewish.
** Oh hey, it's Creator/JayJohnston as a police officer, ''[[TheSarahSilvermanProgram yet]] [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment again]]''.
** In "Beginner Pottery", some of the study group takes a pottery class taught by [[Series/ArrestedDevelopment Buster Bluth]] while the others take a sailing class taught by [[Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan Steve Austin]].
** The pool coach is [[Series/BoyMeetsWorld Shawn Hunter]]'s dad! Also, Slinky The Dog in ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory3''!
** Yes, Chevy Chase is now [[Series/SaturdayNightLive ready for primetime]].
** Star-Burns is the creator of ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' and ''WesternAnimation/HighSchoolUSA''.
** [[Film/HarryPotter Lee Jordan]] is Magnitude. Who the hell saw that coming.
** The pregnant girl in Abed's [[MeaningfulBackgroundEvent child-delivery background story]] in The Psychology of Letting Go is [[TheHardTimesOfRJBerger Jenny Swanson]].
** Apparently [[GreysAnatomy Nurse Rose]] has a thing for guys with impossibly good hair, and a pattern of getting ditched for other women and disappearing forever. Sorry, Professor Slater.
** Two of the stoner set are [[{{Series/Chuck}} Morgan Grimes]] and [[Series/BreakingBad Badger]]. Well, at least they're in college...
** This film answers the question of what would have happened to [[Film/AnotherEarth Rhoda on Earth 2]] - she would have gone to community college instead of MIT, and not been a lesbian.
** "Custody Law and Eastern European Diplomacy" has Creator/EnverGjokaj as Lukka, again showing his affinity for accents.
** [[Film/GroundhogDay Stephen]] [[Series/{{Glee}} Tobolowsky]] as the ''WhosTheBoss?'' professor in "Competitive Wine Tasting".
** The Vice-Dean of Greendale's Air Conditioning Repair Annex is John Goodman.
** [[TheGuild Zabu]] goes to Greendale and plays Abed in Abed's short films.
** [[Series/TheWire Yo, Jeff. You come at the Biology Professor, you best not miss.]]
** [[Series/FreaksAndGeeks Bill Haverchuck]] grew up to be a Poli Sci teacher.
** Those who saw {{Series/Justified}} first might be alarmed to see psychotic stoner Travis Travers as Dr. Rich.
** Hey, it's Creator/PattonOswalt!
** The DragQueen who sang about having a "pocket full of Hawthornes" is none other than [[RupaulsDragRace Shangela.]]
** [[Series/{{Workaholics}} Blake]] doesn't think Pierce is on the list for the Bar Mitzvah.
*** And [[Series/{{Workaholics}} Adam]] is Jeff's estranged half-brother.
** Shut up, Leonard, everyone knows you can [[Series/TheTwilightZone control time]]!
** [[Series/TeenWolf Lydia Martin]] is in biology lab with Troy and Abed in [[Recap/CommunityS1E10EnvironmentalScience Environmental Science]].
** [[LizzieMcguire Lizzie McGuire]] of all people as the school AlphaBitch?
** [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Keith Dudemeister]] is the original [[AnthropomorphicPersonification Subway]].
** Jeff now shares an office with [[Series/BreakingBad Mike Ehrmantraut]], who is just as intimidating as he ever was working for Gus (just ask Leonard).
*** Speaking of Gus, he's Pierce's half-brother.
** Abed's Secret Service "girlfriend" was [[Series/HappyEndings Jane Kerkovich-Williams]]. And he's currently dating a bespectacled [[Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld Envy Adams]].
* HeyItsThatVoice: Annie is [[WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie Princess Uni-Kitty]]!
* [[HeyItsThatVoice Hey Its That Tune!]]: The song Britta dances to in Season 4 episode 5 is the the theme to Series/BrooklynNineNine

** In part due to the focus on nerdom in general, and later being put up against each other in the same time slot, there is a certain rivalry with ''TheBigBangTheory''. It's probably more apparently between [[FandomRivalry the fandoms]] rather than anything else.
