The list of Community guest stars continues to grow with each passing day, as the show deals with the loss of Chevy Chase and the imminent departure of Donald Glover by recruiting enough famous people to fuse into one giant, celebrity Voltron to replace them. Before he becomes the torso, Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz will play “ultimate party animal” Preston Koogler, returning the favor to Dan Harmon for playing a “yurt clerk” on the last season of Arrested Development. And until they lock together to form the right leg, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim will play Roger and Billy, who factor into one of Dean Pelton’s “grand plans for Greendale.” They join all those other new and returning guest stars like Jonathan Banks, Walton Goggins, Nathan Fillion, John Oliver, LeVar Burton, Brie Larson, Ben Folds, Robert Patrick, Kumail Nanjiani, Paget Brewster, and Rob Corddry in this upcoming season—as well as in the massive body of StarBot, who will at last take Glover and Chase’s place at the study table, then deliver their lines in a voice that booms with the power of combined celebrity. “BUTT STUFF,” StarBot will say. “EARTHA KITT.” [via The Wrap]
