As the fourth, slowly suffocating season of Community approaches, the time has arrived for the annual casting of cult TV figures, and TV Line reports that the show has found an especially cult-y one. Matt Lucas—the Bridesmaids co-star popular with fans of the sketch comedy show Little Britain and that other strange, niche cult known as actual Britain—has signed on for a multi-episode arc as a yet-to-be-determined character. (Previous reports that he would be playing a history professor who used to teach at Oxford, despite sounding perfectly plausible, were apparently inaccurate.) Lucas' unnerving presence could possibly reassure fans worried that the Dan Harmon-less Community will be "less weird," were it not all but impossible to reassure those people right now.
