Community Exclusive: Tricia Helfer Tapped to Geek Out With Abed

Tricia Helfer CommunityMethinks Constable Reggie would approve of this: Tricia Helfer is coming to Community.

TVLine has learned exclusively that the Battlestar Galactica alumna will guest-star in a Season 4 installment of the quirky NBC comedy.

Putting to good use her inner geek goddess, Helfer will drop by as Lauren, a drop-dead gorgeous superfan of the (fictional) cult-hit Inspector Spacetime.

As previously reported, the coming season’s fourth episode centers on Abed attending a convention for the Doctor Who-esque series. There, he’ll befriend a fellow fanboy, played by Little Britain‘s Matt Lucas.

Helfer most recently co-starred in NBC’s ill-fated The Firm and guested on Criminal Minds‘ Season 7 finale.

Community‘s senior year — and new time slot — kicks off Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30c.

    Number Six! (seasons and a movie)

  2. Six, that is one very sexy geek goddess.

  3. LC says:

    OMG a possible love interest/flirtation for Abed? Cannot wait cannot wait cannot wait!

  4. Angela says:

    Wow, she’s gorgeous. Should be fun to see her and Abed interact.

  5. wordsmith says:

    I was wondering who they were going to cast for this role. Great choice.

  6. liddad says:

    As long as she approaches Abed then I’m fine with it! (You know, as previously established how he prefers it)

  7. She was great in her guest role on CHUCK. I imagine she will be great in this too.

  8. Steven says:

    At least it’s not Summer Glau.

  9. JWB says:

    Abed attends a convention and wackiness ensues. This season will suck without Dan Harmon at the helm.

  10. Jimmy says:

    A shame she can’t find something more permanent. The woman is far too talented to be stuck in the boring get guest roles.

  11. JC says:

    I’m hoping that Karen Gillan will get a cameo in this episode as she has tweeted about her love of Community and Inspector Spacetime in particular.

  12. Kristina says:

    Awesome! Sounds like a fun episode :)

  13. Lipstick Socialism says:

    OMG, BRILLIANT!! I wish Tricia would get a series regular role. I MISS HER!

  14. inevitable troll says:

    cool cool cool.

  15. Ella says:

    Amazing news! I hope her and Abed have a romantic connection, that would be awesome.
