If 'Community' has a future, will Walt Goggins be part of it?
Fans who turn into tonight's (Thursday,Jan. 16) "Community," or catch up on it later on the DVR, will get to see "Justified" star Walt Goggins guest-star as Mr. Stone, an investigator with a connection to former study-group member Pierce (who was played by ex-cast-member Chevy Chase).
The very straight-laced Mr. Stone gives a lie-detector test to the study group, causing them to reflect on how they view themselves and their place in the world.
While Mr. Stone turns out to be a bit different than fans may initially expect, playing the part made Goggins a little nervous.
"I said yes to two things," he tells Zap2it. "I'm a fan of 'Community'; I've been a fan for a long time. I haven't seen every episode, but I've seen enough. I think they're some of the smartest people writing today. Dan [Harmon] is an incredibly bright man.
"It was fun. It was definitely an opportunity for me to put myself in a situation that made me insecure. They're very good at what they do. It's their world; it's their playground. They have a cadence and a rhythm to how they interface with each other.
"It was daunting to me to step into it; but that only took about 10 minutes."
Asked if Mr. Stone could come back, Goggins says, "I can come back. Sure, I can come back. Would I come back? Absolutely."
