Community Exclusive: Saturday Night Live Star Brings Christmas Cheer to Greendale

Community will be getting into the Christmas spirit with a little help from a Saturday Night Live star.

TVLine has learned exclusively that SNL standout Taran Killam — who recently wowed the crowd opposite Melissa McCarthy in that epic Hidden Valley Ranch sketch — will guest star on the NBC sitcom’s Yuletide installment as Greendale’s bound-to-be kooky choir director. His episode is slated to air in December.

Fun fact: Killam’s Community gig sets the stage for a reunion with executive producer Neil Goldman, who cast the actor some seven seasons ago on Nobody’s Watching, his WB pilot-turned-web sensation with Cougar Town boss Bill Lawrence. (Take a peek at the proof here.)

Killam’s other TV credits include Scrubs (where he also worked with Goldman), How I Met Your Mother, The Amanda Show and MADtv.
