'Cougar Town': 'Community' Star Danny Pudi Makes Special Appearance on Finale (Video)
If you’re a regular viewer of ABC’s Cougar Town or NBC’s Community that there is a cross-network lovefest between the two shows.
Throughout the series, Community’s Danny Pudi (who plays the quirky Abed) has hinted here and there that he is a big fan of Cougar Town — maybe even a superfan. So much so that in the season finale of Community, which aired a week ago, Cougar Town series regulars Busy Philipps and Dan Byrd made a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance near the end of the episode.
(And remember Abed’s story about appearing as an extra on Cougar Town during the Pulp Fiction episode? Turns out, it may actually have been true.)
Cougar Town boss Bill Lawrence had to return the favor, with a subtle (or not so subtle, depending on your interpretation) cameo by Pudi’s Abed in the background of a scene between Philipps and Byrd while the cul-de-sac gang was in Hawaii.
Check out the Cougar Town finale below:
