When Sons of Anarchy returns for Season 5, a new but familiar face will drop by the town of Charming.

Joel McHale, host of The Soup and star of Community, will appear on the biker drama in a multi-episode arc, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

He’ll play Warren, a con man who double-crosses the wrong person, confirmed McHale's rep to THR.

While not much else is known about McHale’s characters arc on the show, he’s sure to have scenes with Katey Sagal, who tweeted a photo of her and McHale on July 12.

“Working with a handsome stranger. Yeow! Lucky girl. Love my job,” she tweeted.

Season 5 of Sons of Anarchy, which premieres in September, will focus on Jax (Charlie Hunnam) as he tries to head up the motorcycle club after ousting his step-father Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) as president.

McHale and the cast of Sons of Anarchy are both invading Comic-Con this week. McHale attended the Community panel on Friday, and Sons of Anarchy will have a panel on Sunday afternoon.
