There will be some new names behind the scenes when Community begins shooting its fourth season, but now the show is enrolling some new actors, too. TV Line reports that the show has hired Little Britain's Matt Lucas to play a history professor at Greendale, and he'll recur in multiple episodes. You may still be grieving the absence of showrunner Dan Harmon, but are you encouraged?
