The NBC series Community has a history of securing top flight talent to play professors at Greendale Community College. That tradition will continue with the news that Malcolm McDowell has signed on to play Professor Cornwalis, the study group's new history teacher in Season 4.

The actor, who also stars on TNT's Franklin & Bash, will appear in two episodes this season, although it isn't known when he will first appear. He joins a long line of Greendale 7 teachers, including Ken Jeong, John Oliver, Betty White, and, most recently, Michael K. Williams. Little Britain star Matt Lucas will also guest star this season, in a multi-episode arc.

Community moves to Friday nights this fall, kicking off Season 4 with "History 101" on Friday, October 19 at 8:30 PM ET on NBC.
