TVGuide.com reports that Nathan Fillion will make a guest star appearance on the NBC comedy COMMUNITY during its upcoming fifth season.
The Castle star will portray Bob Waite, described as a "politically savvy janitor, who will Face Off against Annie (Alison Brie) and her criminology professor Buzz Hickey (guest star Jonathan Banks)."
Fillion will join a roster of upcoming guest stars on the comedy including Walton Goggins, Rob Corddry, LeVar Burton and John Oliver. The comedy is scheduled to return midseason on NBC.
Heading into its fifth season, "Community" is a smart, exuberant comedy that is consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original half-hours on television. This ensemble comedy centers around a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world's worst educational institution - Greendale Community College.
At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talking lawyer who was caught with a phony college degree. Winger was dis-barred until he could earn a legitimate degree and chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. He, however, soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.
The study group includes Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs), who dropped out of high school to "change the world" and soon found herself in her thirties with no marketable skills; Shirley Bennett (Yvette Nicole Brown), a religious housewife who landed at Greendale after a messy divorce and is now blossoming into a headstrong entrepreneur; Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi), a socially awkward, but well-meaning, pop culture savant; Annie Edison (Alison Brie), a high-strung perfectionist; Troy Barnes (Donald Glover), a former High School Football star still trying to find his way; and, Ben Chang (Ken Jeong ), a former Spanish teacher who is either insane or an evil genius, or both.
