Danny Pudi in his element

Danny Pudi, star of “Community,” “DuckTales,” and the upcoming feature film “The Tiger Hunter,” grew up in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles as a young adult to chase his dreams.

For Chicagoly, Photographer Devon Meyers caught up with Danny in Southern California to do a shoot at Lacy Park in Pasadena.

Afterward, Devon said: “Danny has completely restored my faith in actors. He was completely void of ego and willing to do whatever was asked in the one-hundred-four-degree heat. He just seems like an intelligent and passionate guy who just glowed when we spoke about his family and living in Pasadena. It was a creative joy to work with him.
