Is anyone not guest-starring on Community this season? Already Vince Gilligan, Jonathan Banks, Walton Goggins, Mitch Hurwitz, David Cross, and Nathan Fillion have been tapped. Before the day is through, don’t be surprised if the show also casts Cybil Shepard, Bob Dole running mate Jack Kemp, and you for guest spots. Until then, TV Line reports that Chris Elliott will be stopping by. He’ll play the founder of Greendale Community College, Russell Borchert, who vanished decades ago because of a sex scandal. What’s that? Apparently, retired infomercial pitchman Ron Popeil, 2012 Nobel laureate for literature Mo Yan, and the Ikea Monkey have also just been cast. (One will have an affair with Annie’s Boobs, but which?)
