Yesterday we caught our first look at 'Community's Greendale gang gloriously recreated as puppets for Thursday's all-new episode "Intro to Felt Surrogacy," along with confirmation that the out-there concept episode would once again feature the 'Community' stars breaking out into song. Now, yet another preview for the highly-anticipated episode has arrived, featuring our first look at 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander! But who is the mysterious mountain man?
Even without series creator Dan Harmon at the helm, 'Community' season 4 has gone to some unique places in only the first four episodes of the season, soon to address a major milestone this Thursday as Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) comes face to face with his father for "Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations," but where might 'Community' go that it hasn't before? Why, an all-puppet episode with 'Seinfeld' star Jason Alexander, among other spoilers gleamed from PaleyFest!
The cast of 'Seinfeld' sure are having a nice couple of days, what with a 60 Minutes poll declaring the series the greatest sitcom of all time, and Michael Richards' TV return, but the best news of all might belong to 'Community.' We've just learned that a former 'Seinfeld' star will go from TV's greatest sitcom to its most under-appreciated, guesting in 'Community's upcoming fourth season. So what's the deal with Jason Alexander's top-secret 'Community' season 4 gig?
Well, if former 'Seinfeld' stars have such a difficult time launching their own sitcoms after the end of Larry David's pop-culture phenomenon, it makes sense to latch on to already-established TV's most successful shows, right? There's no way they can ruin things, at least more than Charlie Sheen did.
