David Guarascio and Moses Port, who took over Community from the disgraced Dan Harmon, spoke at the Community Panel at San Diego Comic Con today.
The new showrunners have a tough job ahead of them, as many fans of the show have been fearful that the lost of Harmon's guiding voice will lead to big changes to the feel of the beloved cult show. On stage at the Community panel with the cast of the show, the pair addressed the concerns directly:
"We're not going to screw it up. The only thing we care about is keeping it the weird wonderful gem it always has been."
Also discussed at the panel were casting ideas for Jeff's father, who will join the cast in season four. Joel McHale, who plays Jeff, has the following to say:
"Channing Tatum would be great; Jessica Biel would be a great father for me; anybody from the cast of 'Green Lantern,' really. People have talked about Bill Murray because my character, his last name is based on that. Someone like John Laroquette would be great, someone like John Cleese would be terrific. I think we should mix it up and make it like Eddie Murphy or something. Jackie Chan would be great. I hope maybe it's Meryl Streep, she can do anything, she's very versatile. It'll be great to sink my teeth into."
Community returns for at least a half a season on NBC this fall.
