John on NBC Show  
Hey! The awesome gammaguilt mentioned this over at thebugle so I thought I'd post it here too. John has a part in a new NBC comedy Community. You can see him in a few clips on the link. =)

When did this happen? Why are we just hearing about it now? How am I going to handle the excitement of John and Joel McHale on the same show every week? Dammit, NBC!

Also: Awww, his first big network gig! Our little correspondent is growing up!

That was exactly my thinking!

Awww indeed! I would still love to see him on The Office too, just for funsies. =3

I found it on Twitter, the first message about it was six hours ago. I think it's actually brand new news.

Ha, and now Comedy Central blog has just picked it up. Hurrah! =)

I think it's funny that they digitally added John into the website promo photo. If you view the behind-the-scenes photo shoot you see that he wasn't there. Maybe he wasn't even in the pilot?

The video promo for the first episode has him in it, so it may actually be the opposite: he may have been there to film a few scenes, but wasn't around for any photo shoots or anything.

WOW, John made it to network TV! He hasn't mentioned it on The Bugle yet, but he did talk about doing a photo shoot for GQ. I wish him happiness and success!

This is fantastic! Now he can wash away his personal acting horror from the movie that shall not be named. Will he be on every week in a supporting role, in addition to being on The Daily Show regularly? Ooooh, that would rule.

Yah, I wonder if he'll mention it on the Bugle, if his contract allows outside of NBC's promotions.

That's what I was thinking, a chance for redemption. 'Cause this looks all sorts of awesome. It has Joel McHale, John Oliver, and two of the directors from Arrested Development. So excited.

FANTASTIC. And he says he's not an actor. :P

He's really laying the accent on thick, isn't he? Also, nice tank top.
