Community is continuing to rack up impressive guest stars for its upcoming fifth season. Chris Elliott is the latest person to be dropping by for an episode, TV Line reports. If you don't want to see spoilers stop reading now. Elliott will be playing Russell Borchert, the peculiar founder of Greendale Community College, who vanished decades ago after a sex scandal.

When Adult Swim's Eagleheart returns tonight, the show will feel a little different. For one, the season premiere is the first 30-minute episode (it usually runs 15 minutes), but the major change to Eagleheart this season is that the writers are telling one long, serialized story like a TV drama.
I've seen four episodes of the 10-part season, called Paradise Rising, and it finds Eagleheart expanding the scope of its storytelling and character development while going off into some stranger, more unexpected tangents than the show has explored in the past. It's still the fast-paced, joke-dense series it was in seasons one or two, but the focus on an ongoing [...]
Chris Elliott appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman last night, and since his career really began when he started writing and performing bits on Letterman's Late Night show, it's not a huge surprise that his appearance, ostensibly to plug his new returning Adult Swim show Eagleheart, really was just one giant, marathon-themed sketch. Even Dave seemed impressed.

Comedy hero Chris Elliott's next movie is a pretty surprising one: a Hugh Grant rom-com. THR reports that Elliott has joined the cast of an untitled independent romantic comedy starring Grant and Marisa Tomei. J.K. Simmons, Bella Heathcote, and Allison Janney also play supporting roles in the movie, which follows an Academy Award-winning screenwriter (Grant) who hits hard times and has to teach screenwriting at a university, where he falls for a single mom student (Tomei). Elliott will play a Shakespeare professor and Hugh Grant's nextdoor neighbor who's looking for love. The movie is being written and directed by Marc Lawrence, who made previous Hugh Grant rom-coms [...]
