Comedy television worlds are colliding at Greendale Community College in ways that you might not expect. Of all people, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz will take a step out of the writer’s room appear in an upcoming episode of Community. Hurwitz will be playing Preston Koogler, a student at Greendale who is an insatiable party animal.

Also appearing in that episode will be Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, creators and performers on Adult Swim’s gleefully absurd Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, and stars of 2012’s masterful film The Comedy. The two Adult Swim stars will play the roles of Roger and Billy. Not much is known about their characters as of yet, but the two will play some role in the Dean’s upcoming plans for the school. The two oddball comedy writers will certainly add a splash of kookiness to a show that already flirts with crazy.

Season 5 of Community has already snatched up a number of guest stars including the likes of Nathan Fillion, Johnathan Banks, and Walton Goggins. The Greendale Community College enrollment list is already looking completely packed this year.
