Brace yourself: Firefly references are coming.
“When Annie (Alison Brie) and Professor Hickey (guest star Jonathan Banks) team up to navigate Greendale’s corridors of power, they must contend with Bob Waite (Fillion), the politically savvy head custodian who’s not afraid to get his hands dirty but is smart enough to wear rubber gloves.”
Fillion is a fan of the show who has visited the set before, so look forward to some good chemistry with the regular cast. And, of course, where Nathan Fillion goes, Firefly references follow. In the past, Community hasn’t even needed his help for that – they’ve referenced the show on their own – so expect a ton of them. Let’s start taking bets now. Will the rubber gloves be blue?
I’m in favor of any opportunity for Fillion to show off his comedy chops (though I’d also like to see him as a serious villain again someday à la Caleb from Buffy – the man can do anything). He gets to be charming on Castle but not full-on goofy, so it’ll be great to see him have to opportunity to let loose a little. All evidence points to this being A. really funny in itself and B. a major nerdgasm. Shiny.
