Betty White is headed to college -- community college that is.
The in-demand multiple Emmy Award winner will guest star in the season premiere of NBC’s quirky comedy “Community,” when it returns for its second season in the fall.
White, who was recently nominated for an Emmy for her much-lauded hosting gig on “Saturday Night Live,” will play professor June Bauer, an esteemed but slightly unhinged anthropology professor, according to NBC reps.
We’re hoping White’s character schools Jeff (Joel McHale) and the gang and at the very least shares a steamy but awkward romance with Pierce (Chevy Chase). But we’ll settle for some of White’s off-the-cuff humor.
The beloved 88-year-old known for her role as Rose on NBC’s long running series “The Golden Girls,” has had a career resurgence with a memorable role in “The Proposal,” starring alongside Ryan Reynolds and Oscar winner Sandra Bullock; a hilarious Snickers spot that run during the 2010 Super Bowl and her new show “Hot In Cleveland.”
