Class reunion time! Joel McHale and Danny Pudi will be visiting fellow Community alum, Ken Jeong, on his new ABC sitcom, Dr Ken. TV Insider reports the trio will reunite in the February 5th Valentine’s Day themed episode.
From TV Insider:
McHale will play Ross Kirkland, the “snarky bulldog of a medical malpractice attorney, who’s been a nemesis of Ken’s for years. Ken finally gets his chance to go toe-to-toe with Ross when their children strike up a Romeo and Juliet-style romance.” Pudi will join in as Topher Mitchum, who is “Julie’s (Kate Simses) on-again/off-again boyfriend. Seemingly sweet and unassuming, Topher is, in reality, a manipulative Casanova, who inexplicably has Julie under his spell.”
While McHale’s Dr Ken character does not sound like a huge stretch from Community‘s Jeff Winger, for Pudi, playing a manipulative Casanova seems galaxies away from playing Abed Nadir.
For Community fans still stinging from the sitcom’s second cancellation, check out McHale’s late October comments about a Community movie.
