John Goodman, one of the most underrated actors in my opinion, will be joining the cast of Community for a multi-episode arc. He will recur in at least six episodes as Vice Dean Laybourne, the head of Greendale’s air conditioning repair school. He will become a thorn in Dean Pelton’s side and possibly create problems for our favorite study group.
We recently reported that Michael K. Williams (Omar from The Wire) will appear as an ex-con biology teacher for the gang. Williams can also be seen in HBO’s prohibition era drama Boardwalk Empire.
With the cast additions, this season is shaping up to be a great season. Let’s hope more people catch on to what is the funniest show on TV.
You can currently see Goodman in DirecTV’s Damages, where he plays the gruff CEO of a Blackwater-type military contractor.
