'BREAKFAST CLUB' ALUMNI ANTHONY MICHAEL HALL TO GUEST STAR ON HOLIDAY EPISODE OF NBC'S COMEDY SERIES 'COMMUNITY'
HALL'S APPEARANCE MARKS THE FIRST TIME HE'S WORKED WITH CHEVY CHASE SINCE THE TWO STARRED IN 'NATIONAL LAMPOON'S VACATION'
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. November 2, 2009 -- Anthony Michael Hall, who rose to fame in the '80s as one of the members of the infamous "brat pack," will guest star in the holiday episode of NBC's comedy series "Community" airing Thursday, December 10 (8-8:30p.m. ET). Hall will haunt the halls of Greendale Community College as a campus bully who ultimately challenges Jeff (Joel McHale) to a fight. "Community" is a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who form a study group and like in the classic film "Breakfast Club" end up learning a lot more about themselves than they do about their course work.
Hall rose to fame in the 80's with breakthrough performances in John Hughes' series of teenage angst films, he captured the shy, withdrawn, and often overlooked pain that we've all gone through. As an adult, his transitional film work and starring role in the successful TV series, "The Dead Zone" showed us that drama is well within his grasp as an actor. Most recently, his work on "The Dead Zone" has allowed him to extend his talents into producing.
"Community" is a Krasnoff Foster Entertainment, Harmonious Claptrap, Russo Brothers production, Universal Media Studios production in association with Sony Pictures Television. Russ Krasnoff ("The Soloist"), Dan Harmon ("The Sarah Silverman Program"), Joe Russo ("Arrested Development"), Anthony Russo ("Arrested Development"), Garrett Donovan ("Scrubs"), Neil Goldman ("Scrubs") and Gary Foster ("The Soloist") serve as executive producers.
