Casting news for Community and Office spin-off, The Farm

08.17.2012by:

Let's start off with the little sitcom that could-- COMMUNITY.

Malcolm McDowell will guest star on the show as history teacher, Professor Cornwallis for two episodes. This will be awesome. I don't think Greendale is ready for this. The same article also says that Matt Lucas (LITTLE BRITAIN) will be on several episodes this season.

COMMUNITY returns to NBC on October 19th. Just in time for another Halloween episode, or at least me hopes.

The second bit of casting news involves THE OFFICE spin-off, THE FARM. This show will be all about Dwight Schrute and family on the beet farm and bed & breakfast. Majandra Delfino (ROSWELL) is joining as Dwight's youngest sister, Fannie. The character left the farm for Boston then returns divorced and with a kid. Watch out, Mose eats the young.

A first introduction to the new show will come when THE OFFICE returns for its ninth season on September 20th.

They just need to pull the plug on The Office.

I'll give them credit for doing the best they could with James Spader, but let's be honest. The show hasn't been the same since Carell left. The Jim and Pam dynamic is no longer interesting (which always happens with long-time TV couples finally hook up, e.g.: Moonlighting), and I'm just not buying into Andy and Erin thing anymore. Rainn Wilson is still good but I'd like to see him do... something non-Dwight for a while. I really feel like the show has been on its last legs for some time,

I really feel like the show has been on its last legs for some time, they need to accept that it's over and move on. If another season of The Office must happen, let it be the last one, and write an ending to the show.

Good news/bad news

I've always found Dwight to be the least interesting character on The Office... so him and his weird clan getting a spin off isn't something I'm thrilled about. Community can really do no wrong, and adding McDowell is just another in a long list of A+ decisions.

I love Community...

but do we really think it will last past this season, moving to Friday nights?

Super excited to see McDowell in Community, and I agree, their Halloween episodes are the best.

Can't wait for Community. I can't help but think that this "Farm" show will be the death of both itself and the Office though.

Anytime Malcolm McDowell is in anything, it pleases me! The guy is simply amazing! (A key reason i love Franklin and Bash on TNT). As for this Office Spin-off... i seriously doubt it will be a hit, just have a final season, bring back Michael Scott for a few episodes (the final 5 i'd say) and call it a day!

Since the cast and Dan Harmon continue to endorse the new season of Community I'll give a try. Malcom McDowell seems like a nice intimidating edition. Majandra Delfino is so hot that I have a hard time believing that her and Dwight share the same DNA. Here's hoping that they reveal that she's adopted or something.
