Community may not land as many big names as, say, The Good Wife, but they sure as hell know how to attract guest stars that appeal to the show’s core audience. They’ve had Josh Holloway, Giancarlo Esposito, Tony Hale, Taran Killam, LeVar Burton, John Goodman, and Michael K. Williams. This season, Jonathan Banks (who plays Mike Ehrmantraut on Breaking Bad) will have a role that recurs throughout most of the year and now they’ve added “Justified’s” Walton Goggins.
Can he outdo his Venus Van Damme character on Sons of Anarchy and finally land the guest Emmy nomination that has eluded him? From TV Guide:
Goggins will play Mr. Stone, a mysterious, emotionless man that the Greendale gang encounters. Mr. Stone comes armed “with a dangerous accusation, a tantalizing offer and a devious plan that will change the group forever.”
I have no idea what that accusation might entail, but with the episode filming next week, it’s likely an early episode, and maybe that “tantalizing accusation” will be what leads to the ouster of Donald Glover’s Troy Barnes, who is only signed on to the fifth season for five episodes.
