21 Jump Street star (the new one, not the Johnny Depp one) Brie Larson will join the ever-expanding list of guest starts for Community’s fourth season.
TVLine reports that Larson will appear in the seventh episode of the now-delayed fourth season, which will feature Dean Pelton planning a Sadie Hawkins dance. Naturally this does not bode well with Britta, who plans a “Sophie B. Hawkins” dance having confused Sophie B. Hawkins with Susan B. Anthony. Britta’d it.
No word on who Larson will be playing yet (fingers-crossed for the ghost of Susan B. Anthony) but she is the latest high-profile guest star to sign on for season 4. Malcolm McDowell will be the gang’s new history professor. James Brolin will take the role of Jeff Winger’s estranged dad, despite the internet’s impassioned and unrealistic pleas for Bill Murray. Everyone’s favorite Cylon, Tricia Helfer, will be appearing as an “Inspector Spacetime” superfan. And British comedian Matt Lucas will be appearing to drive a wedge between the Abed and Troy bromance.
In addition to 21 Jump Street, Brie Larson has previously popped up in a host of excellent, Community-fan friendly fare like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, United States of Tara and The League.
