"At some point in my career when they tell me to stop acting I will probably transition into writing and directing," he joked, reports Female First. "But I am going to keep acting until they tell me to stop, when the acting police come and take me away."

The star went on to say that he will likely wait until he can focus solely on directing before tackling a skill like filmmaking.

"It is one of those things where for the last three years I have been buried with working on Community and promoting Community, that has been my main focus for my professional career; my main focus is watching my two sons grow up," he explained.

"The main focus has been making sure that Jeff Winger is watchable and hitting the comedy and doing The Soup at the same time.

"Those have taken up so much time that directing something is in the back of my mind but it is not at the forefront - so much preparation goes into even directing an episode for television. We will see down the line if I get the opportunity to do that."

Community airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC.
