'Community': Malcolm McDowell Heads to Greendale (Exclusive)
Malcolm McDowell is poised to make history, or at least teach it.
The Franklin & Bash actor has booked a guest-starring role on NBC's cult favorite Community, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.
The actor, whose numerous TV credits include gigs on Entourage, Heroes and CSI: Miami, will check in to Greendale and play a history professor on the upcoming fourth season of the Sony Pictures Television comedy. He's poised to appear in two episodes as Professor Cornwallis.
McDowell joins Little Britain's Matt Lucas as having booked multiple-episode gigs on the series, which returns in its new 8:30 p.m. Friday time slot starting Oct. 19.
He's repped by Markham, Froggatt and Irwin and CR Management.
