The actor played Troy Barnes in the hit series, which followed the adventures of a group of community college misfits. Since then, Glover has had a hugely successful career and his busy schedule was rumoured to be the reason for the Community movie delays.

"Everybody is hating on me on the internet for this!" he laughed. "Everybody's kinda like 'We know that you're the reason.' Maybe I was last year — maybe — but not this time."

When asked if there was a script for the movie, Glover claimed: "I haven't read it yet. I haven't gotten it yet. I think Dan's [Harmon, Community creator] working on it.

"But that's all I know!" he added.
