Thesps to play college administrator in six-episode stint

John Goodman has signed up for a six-episode stint on the NBC comedy “Community.”

He’ll play an administrator at Greendale Community College’s air-conditioning repair school to kick off the series’ third season, which bows Sept. 22.

Goodman, who has kept busy racking up TV credits lately coming off stints on “Treme” and “Damages,” will return to his comedic roots. He enjoyed a long run on ABC hit “Roseanne.”

“Community” grabbed another HBO alum for this season, with Michael K. Williams set to play a professor. Williams is best known for playing Omar on “The Wire.”
