Greendale Community College is getting a visit from a familiar browncoat. According to Deadline, Castle and Firefly star Nathan Fillion is slated to guest star in the upcoming season of Community. Fillion will play Bob Waite, a politically savvy head custodian who battles Annie (Alison Brie) and Professor Hickey (fellow guest star Jonathan Banks) for Greendale supremacy.

Community's brand of topsy turvy meta plots make for the perfect venue for Fillion's geeky IMDB profile. We never knew we wanted a Firefly-inspired paintball episode so completely until we heard that Mal Reynolds would be taking a couple extra-curriculars in his spare time.

Fillion is actually a huge fan of the show. The actor visited the set last year and spent time hanging out with the cast. Fillion's guest role follows the news that Jonathan Banks (star of the recently wrapped up Breaking Bad), will be appearing as a guest star as well. Hopefully, these two actors attract the attention of their previous show's fan bases and increase Community's paltry ratings.
