Jeff Winger should have a Thanksgiving to remember this year on Community, because it also will double as a sort of Father’s Day. That’s right, Jeff (Joel McHale) will finally come face-to-face with his estranged dad, William Winger, and William will be played by… James Brolin. Community‘s producers tell EW that the Emmy winner (Marcus Welby, M.D., Hotel), spouse of Streisand, and father of Josh, will guest-star in the NBC comedy’s Thanksgiving-themed episode, titled “Cooperative Escapism in Familial Relations.” In the episode, which airs in November, Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) hosts an awkward gathering at her place with the study group, while Jeff  winds up at the house of his father, whom he hasn’t seen since he was a kid, and a different kind of discomfort ensues.

Brolin has popped up in recent years on such shows as The Defenders and Psych. Community returns for a 13-episode fourth season on Oct. 19.

Joel McHale and Alison Brie star in this comedy about a college study group—which has received second life on Yahoo.
