I think about a world to come where the books were found by the golden ones, written in pain, written in awe by a puzzled man who questioned, "What are we here for?" All the strangers came today and it looks as though they're here to stay.

Gillian Jacobs

Actress Gillian Jacobs. You probably recognize her as Britta Perry from NBC's Community, but there's a good chance you've also been surprised to see her pop up here and there in films like Choke, The Box, and Solitary Man. I'm convinced that the clash of Community's Britta (Jacobs) and Annie (Alison Brie) is for some what Jack versus Sawyer is on LOST or what Bill versus Sam is on True Blood. Whereas America has been obsessed with the balance of bad boys like Jacob and Edward, Community brings us back to the original Betty/Veronica rivalry. Currently, I'm team Britta despite my strong support of Team Annie last season. I wonder if there's a web site devoted to this rivalry...
