John Goodman joins NBC’s “Community”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Adding John Goodman to anything makes it better. But when you slide the effortless actor into an already-humming comedy machine like “Community,” we legitimately can expect greatness.
Goodman will join the incredibly funny Thursday night sitcom as the Vice Dean of Greendale Community College’s air conditioning program. Yes, you read that right. Network sources confirmed to THR that Goodman will appear in at least six episodes, where he’ll clash with Joel McHale and the brilliant Jim Rash, who plays the school’s official dean.
“The Greendale Community College only has one part of it that is actually nationally renowned, and it’s their air conditioning repair program,” showrunner Dan Harmon told Vulture. “And it’s sort of a separate annex on the campus that puts itself above the rest of the school, and ironically has more power than the campus itself.”
Goodman’s not the only coveted cast member added to the ensemble. Michael K. Williams, who played the brilliant Omar on HBO’s “The Wire,” has joined the show as a biology teacher.
