Dan Harmon Wants Bill Murray To Play Jeff’s Dad on Community
Community fans wondering why the show hasn’t yet shown Jeff’s dad have their answer. Dan Harmon admits in this interview that he’s been pushing back that storyline “in the hope that some miracle will happen” and Bill Murray will deign to play the role. I guess the whole Chevy Chase-Bill Murray feud makes this casting pretty improbable, but man, how great would that be?
Harmon goes on to talk about possible spinoffs and plotlines once the characters have graduated from Greendale, as well as his respect for obsessive online viewers of the show. “I do try many times a season to put Alison [Brie] in a situation, wardrobe-wise, that I know is going to end up as an animated GIF file,” he says. Harmon, you sneaky genius.
