Pedro Pascal Added to ‘Community’ Virtual Table Read


As if it wasn’t incredible enough that the cast of Community is reuniting for a virtual table read, series creator Dan Harmon has taken to Instagram for one more special announcement about the upcoming event — as Walton Goggins will be not available, Pedro Pascal will be filling in for the role of Pierce’s estate executor and polygraph expert Mr. Stone.

Harmon describes Pascal with the most appropriate of introductions, “He’s on some Disney show where Boba Fett’s in college with Yoda’s niece.” We might need to rethink any future summaries of The Mandalorian going forward, since Harmon has clearly nailed it.

The virtual table read, along with a Q&A of fan questions, will be shown on May 18 at 2:00 p.m. PT via Sony Pictures Television’s Community YouTube page. Participating cast members are: Joel McHale, Donald Glover, Gillian Jacobs, Danny Pudi, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Jim Rash, and Ken Jeong, along with Pascal and Harmon. They will be reading the season 5 episode, “Cooperative Polygraphy,” in which the study group meets in the library after Pierce’s funeral.

The purpose of this exciting reunion is to benefit COVID-19 relief efforts, with two charities being targeted in particular — José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen and Frontline Foods. You can go here to donate.

Lindsey joined the Nerds and Beyond team in 2018. If she's not writing or out and about with her camera, she's probably watching anime, nerding out over Star Wars, reading manga, and definitely forgetting to water her plants. And waiting for the Genshin loading screen to pop up. Contact:
