Pedro Pascal will read Pierce Hawthorne’s will in a COMMUNITY table read

Don’t call it a repilot.


Pedro Pascal is joining the Community cast in a table read of season five episode four, “Cooperative Polygraphy.” The Mandalorian actor is taking the place of Walton Goggins, the Justified and Django Unchained hardass, who is unable to reprise his role as the executor of Pierce Hawthorne’s will.

The episode follows Harmon’s return to the show following the gas leak year, and the subsequent death of Chevy Chase’s character, Pierce Hawthorne. It’s a bottle episode in which Goggins puts the study group through a psychological harrowing as he reads Pierce’s final will and testament. In typical Community fashion, though, by the end of the episode everyone is left with their own seeds of hope to remember Pierce by.

The news comes from Community creator Dan Harmon’s Instagram, in which he writes “The incredible Walton Goggins can’t make it so Pedro Pascal will play Pierce’s lawyer. He’s on some Disney show where Boba Fett’s in college with Yoda’s niece. In keeping with that theme, the part of Troy will be played by Lando.”

Yep, even Donald Glover will be there – in spite of the fact that he only found out about the Community cast group chat this weekend, when the crew got together on Ken Jeong’s podcast to reminisce about the good old days, and catch up on what everyone’s up to now.

Although Harmon says he’s unsure when the Community table read will be available for viewing, Variety reports that the Community table read will be live on Sony Pictures TV’s “Community” YouTube page on May 18, at 2PM PT. Till then, don’t worry. Just fat dog it.

Update: A previous version of this article did not include the table read’s premiere date.
