Yvette Nicole Brown (born August 12, 1971) is an American actress, singer, and comedian. Brown has appeared in numerous commercials, television shows, and films throughout her career. She starred as Shirley Bennett on the NBC comedy series Community. She had a recurring role on the Nickelodeon sitcom Drake & Josh as Helen Dubois, and voiced the character Cookie on the American-Canadian animated series Pound Puppies. Brown currently stars as Dani in the 2015 version of The Odd Couple on CBS.

Brown has also had small guest roles in television shows such as That 70's Show, The Office, Boston Legal, Chuck, and The Soul Man. In addition to television, she has had supporting roles in films such as (500) Days of Summer, Tropic Thunder, Repo Men, and Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.


Formation et débuts (années 2000)

Yvette Brown a pris deux cours de théâtre, un à l'Université d'Akron où elle a été diplômé, et l'autre à Hollywood.
Elle apparait dans le clip vidéo "1-4-All-4-1" de East Coast Family pour Biv10 Records. Mais Yvette Nicole Brown dit que même si elle a aimé cette expérience elle pense que la musique n'a jamais été faite pour elle.

Yvette Brown joue d'abord dans des publicités avant d'entrer en 2000 dans les séries télévisées et dans les films quelques années plus tard.

Elle enchaîne d'abord les comédies La Guerre à la maison, Malcolm et Phénomène Raven. À partir de 2004, elle décroche deux rôles récurrents : la série jeunesse Drake et Josh de la chaîne Nickelodeon ; puis elle est au casting de la sitcom The Big House, portée par Kevin Hart.

Entre 2006 et 2008, elle parvient aussi à faire des apparitions dans un registre dramatique : la série médicale House, la série adolescentes Privileged, mais encore le film Dreamgirls.

Percée télévisuelle (années 2010)

En 2009, c'est la révélation : l'actrice est au casting de la nouvelle série Community. La série est acclamée par la critique, à défaut de récolter de bonnes audiences.

La même année, sortent d'autres projets, notamment au cinéma - (500) jours ensemble , Palace pour chiens, L'Abominable Vérité.

Mais parallèlement à la série, elle continue les petits rôles : en 2010, elle tient un second rôle dans le film d'action Repo Men. Puis en 2011, elle reprend son rôle de Helen dans la deuxième saison de l'épisode de Victorious intitulé "Helen Back Again". Elle fait aussi un caméo dans la série comique d'action Chuck. En 2013, elle apparait aussi dans le blockbuster jeunesse Percy Jackson : La Mer des monstres.

Entre 2010 et 2013, elle fait aussi la voix de "Cookie" dans le dessin-animé Les Pitous (Pound Puppies). Elle joue aussi dans des publicités pour Hamburger Helper, Big Lots, Pine-Sol, Comcast, Aquapod, Shout, Fiber One, les yaourts Yoplait, les pizzas DiGiorno, Dairy Queen, et Time Warner.

En 2014, elle quitte Community au bout de sa cinquième saison, pour raisons personnelles. Elle préfère prendre un petit rôle dans une nouvelle série, The Odd Couple, avec Matthew Perry. La sitcom s'arrête au bout de trois saisons, en 2017.

Elle enchaîne aussitôt avec une nouvelle série, The Mayor, aux côtés de Lea Michele et Brandon Michael Hall. La série est cependant un échec et s'arrête au bout d'une courte saison de 13 épisodes.

While in Central City, Louisiana, orphans Andi (Emma Roberts) and Bruce (Jake T. Austin) manage to sell a rock in a box to a pawn shop to buy food for their dog, Friday, a Jack Russell Terrier. However, they are quickly caught and marched off to the police station, where their social worker, Bernie Wilkins (Don Cheadle) picks them up and takes them back to their foster parents, Lois and Carl Scudder (Lisa Kudrow and Kevin Dillon, respectively), who appear not to care for either Andi or Bruce. When the two demand to know where their foster children have been, Bernie covers for them, telling them that it was his fault they were late. Despite his sympathies towards the two siblings, he warns them that they are playing a dangerous game by deliberately getting into trouble in order to escape Carl and Lois, since they could get fostered separately, something that both orphans are desperate to avoid. During Bernie's visit, Friday returns home and Bruce quickly bustles Bernie out of the door, since Friday's presence is to be kept secret.

Hook-handed Vietnam veteran Staff Sergeant John "Four Leaf" Tayback's (Nick Nolte) memoir, Tropic Thunder, is being made into a film. With the exception of newcomer supporting actor Kevin Sandusky (Jay Baruchel), the cast—fading action hero Tugg Speedman (Ben Stiller), five-time Academy Award-winning Australian method actor Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey, Jr.), rapper Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson), and drug-addicted comedian Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black)—behave unreasonably. Rookie director Damien Cockburn (Steve Coogan) cannot control them during filming of a large war scene, and production is reported to be one month behind schedule a mere week into production. Studio executive Les Grossman (Tom Cruise) orders Damien to resume filming as planned, or risk its cancellation.
