Danny Pudi is Not Abed.

Danny Pudi's slick, yet stilted line delivery as Abed Nadir on “Community” is one of the show's great perks. He's full of great putdowns, pop culture references, and indefatigable energy, and it's such a convincing persona that Pudi himself is often confused for being the fictional nerd. He set the record straight with us before the “Community” panel at PaleyFest.
