While there is little doubt at this point that “Community” is not the series that it was for the first three seasons, there is still reason to be excited about the road ahead. This is still a show with one of the best casts out there, and it also has more multi-faceted starts out there than anyone. What other comedy can you think of that has a “Mad Men” star, a “Hangover” scene-stealer, a host of an E! comedy show, a professional rapper, a “Saturday Night Live” alum, and an Oscar-winner all listed as series regulars?
We have already seen some of these actors show their other talents on the show (including Donald Glover’s rapping), and now, Joel McHale has told E! News in a new interview that we will be seeing the Oscar-winning writer Jim Rash use his talents for good a little later this season:
“The great Jim Rash wrote an episode which is a Freaky Friday episode in the vein of Jodi Foster’s Freaky Friday and so, that one was really fun.”
So who ends up changing roles during this episode? In a perfect world, and considering who the writer is for this episode, we would love to see Jeff Winger try to swap places with Dean Pelton and experience what his life would be like. (Then again, the Dean would probably find some insanely perverse pleasure in getting to live as his favorite student.) Some other great possibilities including Pierce and Britta, Troy and Britta, and really just Chang with anyone.
Do you think an episode penned by Rash will be the highlight of “Community” season 4? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below, and you can see our most-recent episode review over at the link here.
