Casting Update: Community Casts Matt Lucas in Season 4

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Matt Lucas has been cast to star in the new season of Community.

In a move that should make Community fans a little less wary of the Dan Harmon-less Season 4, the show has cast British comedian Matt Lucas as Greendale’s newest faculty member.

Lucas will appear in multiple episodes as a history professor who used to teach at Oxford and whose commitment to academic rigor is a challenge to the community college’s learning environment, TVLine has learned exclusively. But as Ask Ausiello hinted a few weeks ago, the prof’s polished exterior may be hiding a trainwreck of a personal life.

Best known to American audiences as one of Kristen Wiig’s roommates in Bridesmaids, Lucas made a name for himself in the British sketch comedy series Little Britain. An American version of the show later aired on HBO.

Community‘s fourth season premieres Friday, Oct. 19.
