As if you needed another reason to get excited about the upcoming season of one of the best shows on television, Michael K. Williams will be joining the cast next semester as a prison-taught Biology professor. From Warming Glow:
Showrunner Dan Harmon described the reasoning at the “Community” Comic-Con panel:
“It is what it seems like,” he said. “I want to add a layer of intensity to ‘Community.’ If the show’s ever been too weird to attract new viewers, you can add water to have less flavor and hope it threatens less people, or you can threaten the hell out of everyone with the kind of intensity and flavor that people will get tired of pretending isn’t awesome… If we’re too cartoonish sometimes, then let’s add the opposite of cartoonish. Let’s add a little element of ‘The Wire’ to ‘Community.’”
Here’s hoping that video clip up top represents next year’s Emmy nominations.
