by at . Comments

Community has often, hilariously compared itself to The Breakfast Club.

Now, in an inspired bit of casting, one of the stars from that iconic film will guest star on the NBC sitcom.

TV Guide Magazine confirms that Anthony Michael Hall will appear on a the December 10 episode. His character will brawl with Joel McHale's Jeff Winger.

“We all freaked out when Hall’s casting was announced. I blushed profusely," said Alison Brie (Annie). "I couldn’t help but let him know that I’ve been a big fan. It’s funny, because Annie’s the nerdy character, and we referenced The Breakfast Club in the pilot and in episodes.

Over two decades ago, Hall also appeared with Community's Chevy Chase in the comedy Vacation.
