Could Abed be getting a love interest on the upcoming season of “Community“? This may be a little bit of a stretch at the moment, but what we can say at the moment is that we are at least going to see Danny Pudi’s character interact with someone just as passionate about the world of Inspector Speacetime as he is.
According to TVLine, the show is casting an actress in her thirties who is not only attractive, but also a secret fan of all things science fiction. Basically, they are a geek stuck inside the body of someone you would not think would be a geek. She is going to end up meeting the Greendale 7 while at a convention for the show’s version of “Doctor Who,” and we have a pretty good feeling that there is going to be an entire horde of guys following her through every hallway.
So who is going to be playing this part? That much is still a mystery, but we are sure that producers are going to be looking to cast just about every big name in science fiction in order to find the right person for the job here. Summer Glau is one name that the original report put out there but we have a feeling that there will be plenty more who are considered. (Of course, Glau would be pretty ironic given how she was a cast member on “The Cape” — which “Community” ruthlessly skewered leading up to their “six seasons and a movie” catchphrase.)
Who do you think should play this character on the show? We want to hear some of your thoughts below! Also, be sure to visit the link here find out just who else from the world of science fiction will be stopping by the show this season.
