For what has to be the last season of Community, the show is pulling out all the stops when it comes to guest stars. Now they’ve enlisted Firefly/Castle’s Nathan Fillion to appear in an episode this upcoming season.
Here’s the scoop according to Deadline:
“When Annie (Alison Brie) and Professor Hickey (guest star Jonathan Banks) team up to navigate Greendale’s corridors of power, they must contend with Bob Waite (Fillion), the politically savvy head custodian who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty but is smart enough to wear rubber gloves.”
Wait Jonathan Banks AND Nathan Fillion are going to be in one episode? Too much awesomeness to handle.
Honestly, I’m surprised to see it took this long for Fillion to guest star. I see him talking to the cast all the time on Twitter, and he posted the photo of him stopping by the set last year. There must have been some sort of scheduling issues, as Castle keeps him pretty busy. It’s why he’s been involved in disputes with the network about wanting to get shorter work weeks for his own show.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing Fillion at Greendale as a janitor, hopefully getting in a fist-fight with Jonathan Banks because that would be awesome.
