Nathan Fillion to Guest Star on 'Community'


Nathan Fillion on Firefly


Hold on to your hats 'Community' fans (for the purposes of this sentence I choose to assume you're all wearing hats), the fifth (and possibly final) season of NBC's little sitcom that could just landed a big fish. As first reported by Deadline, Rick Castle himself, Nathan Fillion, has signed on to make a guest appearance in an upcoming episode.

Of course, 'Community' fans still probably know Fillion best for his breakthrough role as Capt. Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds on the beloved cult sci-fi series 'Firefly.' Two people who definitely remember that are 'Community' characters Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi) and Troy Barnes (Donald Glover). It was revealed in season two's 'Intermediate Documentary Filmmaking' episode that Abed and Troy have an agreement that if one of them dies, the other will stage the death to look like a suicide caused by 'Firefly's cancellation. Now that's commitment.

Fillion will play Greendale's scheming head custodian Bob Waite in his as yet untitled episode. He'll be sharing scenes with fellow guest star Jonathan Banks, most recently seen as Mike on 'Breaking Bad.' Annie (Alison Brie) will also be heavily involved in their plotline. Fillion is a long time fan of 'Community,' and even visited the set last year. It doesn't at all surprise me that he's finally appearing on-screen, but I do wonder what the heck took so long for producers to make it happen. I'll leave you with the aforementioned scene from season two:

That's just going to be awesome... But, yeah, this is probably the end for Community.
