Jonathan Banks will be guest starring on the upcoming fifth season of “Community.” Best known for his role as Mike Ehrmantraut on “Breaking Bad,” the actor will appear in several episodes of the show.
His character is Professor Pat Nichols, who is being described as intense and from New Jersey. He is a former military man and police offer, and will teach criminology at Glendale Community College. Annie (Alison Brie) will be enrolling in his class. Banks will first appear as the multi-episode arc in the second episode of the fifth season. He is expected to appear in 11 episodes altogether.
Season five of “Community” is seeing a few changes. Original showrunner Dan Harmon is back and Donald Glover (who plays Troy Barnes) will no longer appear as a series regular, but a recurring guest star so he can concentrate on his music career.
NBC has yet to announce a premiere date for season five of “Community.”
