John Goodman Joins Season Three of COMMUNITY

     July 25, 2011


As we reported earlier, season three of NBC’s Community began filming today (where a perfectly self-deprecating banner welcomed the cast and crew back to set). Kenneth Williams (Omar from The Wire) recently signed on to join the cast for the upcoming season, and now there’s another new addition: John Goodman. Vulture reports that Goodman will play the vice dean of Greendale Community College’s School of Air Conditioning Repair (because air-conditioning repairmen have to be trained somewhere).

Series creator Dan Harmon revealed that the air conditioning repair unit is the school’s only national-renowned program, and holds itself in higher regard to the rest of campus. The mastermind of one of the best shows on television also confirmed that Goodman will be sharing some sure-to-be fantastic screen time with Jim Rash’s Dean Pelton.
