TVLine Items: Community Reunion, New Justice League Series and More

Greendale Community College may have closed its doors, but Dr. Ken continues to host class reunions.

Jim Rash, who played Dean Pelton on Community, is set to appear on co-star Ken Jeong’s freshman sitcom.

According to EW.com, Rash will guest-star on an early spring episode as Devon Drake, a slick, smug lawyer who is hell-bent on proving that Ken is not qualified to be an expert medical witness on a case.

Rash will be the third Community vet dropping by Dr. Ken; Joel McHale and Danny Pudi will appear in the Feb. 5 installment.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. Animation are teaming up for Justice League Action, a 15-minute animated series following Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman as they lead the DC Comics superheroes against their most infamous foes.

    A new Justice League series sounds nice, but hearing that Kevin Conroy is voicing Batman sold it for me. If you ever want to find out if someone knows who Kevin Conroy is, you just need to say one phrase:
    .
    I am vengeance. I am the night. I AM BATMAN!

      Totally agree. My worry comes from the idea that they are going to be 15 minute episodes. You cannot tell a good intriguing story in just 15 minutes.

        Has anyone watched the 15 minutes long Teen Titan’s reboot? Don’t. They made it into slapstick comedy. I fear they’ll do the same with this. Either that, or it will be a hyper violent (cartoon level, but still) toy commercial. Not enthused, at all.

    Kevin Frazier is just terrible on red carpets. Did they learn nothing from the debacle at the Critics Choice Pre show

    ‘The Arrangement’ sounds like it could be a very entertaining show. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing it and I hope that there are plenty of inside jokes about Hollywood.

    Guess people aren’t very happy about this year’s Grammys now on a Monday. CBS better not do it again next year.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Exciting there will be another Community reunion on Dr.Ken! Happy Kevin will voice Batman again in a new Justice League series!
