This Just In: James Brolin is a (fictional) deadbeat dad.
Joel McHale first hinted at the casting via Twitter Tuesday morning when he posted a pic of the two on set together. A spokesperson for the show, however, is unable to confirm Brolin’s casting at this time.
Brolin — who won Emmy gold in 1970 for his role on Marcus Welby, M.D. — counts The Defenders, Psych and Law & Order: SVU as his most recent TV appearances.
Community’s senior year — and new time slot — begins Friday, Oct. 19 at 8:30/7:30c.
