Great news for all of those who miss “Community,” and at least want to see all of the show’s actors doing something fun with one another once again: They will get a chance to on at least one upcoming episode of “Dr. Ken” this season.
According to a new report from Entertainment Weekly, Joel McHale and Danny Pudi are set to join former show star Ken Jeong on his self-titled sitcom, where they will play two characters who impact his world in one way or another.
McHale – Known for being former attorney Jeff Winger on the NBC / Yahoo comedy, Joel here will play an attorney named Ross Kirkland who specializes in malpractice. He has a history with Ken, and things get even more complicated when Ross’ daughter starts to date Ken’s son Dave. Shouldn’t this be entertaining? We like that it is a twist against the adversarial relationship that the two had on “Community,” where there Jeong was more of the outsider in Chang coming into McHale’s group.
Pudi – Known for playing the oh-so-eccentric Abed, here Danny will be taking on a very different type in Julie’s boyfriend. He somehow manages to have a complete hold over her, which is interesting given that on the surface, he seems to be a very nice guy and very easy to like.
Like “Community,” “Dr. Ken” is also somewhat ratings-challenged; however, at the same time it retains consistently almost all of its lead-in from “Last Man Standing,” and it has at least a decent shot at getting renewed for a second season as a result of that.
