Fall TV Preview

Community's Danny Pudi Spies Chuck Cameo

Cougar Town isn’t the only comedy series crushing hard on Danny Pudi. Turns out the folks over at Chuck are also infatuated with the Community scene-stealer.

As first reported by AOL TV, Pudi is set to make a cameo in the fifth episode of Chuck‘s fifth and final season.

Who will he play? “Can’t say,” a show insider tells TVLine. “It would spoil it.”

Last season, Community loaned Pudi out to Cougar Town as part of an ongoing lovefest/talent sharing arrangement between the two shows.

Chuck‘s farewell season kicks off Oct. 21. Community, meanwhile, returns with its third season on Sept. 22.

  • I’ve been watching Community since the beginning (love me some Joel McHale) and I am slowly building a crush on Danny Pudi. The more I watch him, the more I love him.

  • Any idea if he will be in the episode as Abed, like in Cougar Town, or if it will be a completely separate character?

    • Doesn’t the story say that is not being revealed?

  • For all we know Lester could be stalking the actor Danny Pudi from NBC’s Community . . . did I just blow your mind?

    • Not a bad theory! And Jeff would not be far behind, no doubt.

  • I hope this is the start of Abed making cameos on a ton of different shows. Like where’s waldo!

  • I just discovered Chuck, had no idea it existed, no marketing done for it anywhere. I love it and it’s ending already! I love me some Adam Baldwin. I’m looking forward to seeing Danny Pudi, he is very versatile and will fit in well.

  • Two of my favorite shows and actors collide. BEST DAY EVER! Now I need some Chuck love on Community.

    • @Becca I agree with you…Maybe after the 5th season finishes up..They can make room in the study group for Team Bartowski :) If even for just one episode to see some interaction between Zac Levi and Chevy Chase…They could spend the entire episode trying to figure out where they had met before…lol. Plus Joshua Gomez would fit in perfectly with Troy and Abed…Even Capt. Awesome could have a nice run on the show.

  • one word, AWESOME!!

  • I was hoping this would happen ever ever since I realized Danny Pudi’s friends with Zac Levi in Comic-Con. Also, Josh Schwartz knows Community showrunner Dan Harmon and Danny’s done a nice little cameo before on CT. I’m sure this stint on Chuck would be just as awesome!
