On the same day NBC’s Community posted a series low, its co-star Ken Jeong was cast in ABC’s comedy pilot Spy. The casting of course is in second position to Community, but ABC is clearly betting that the cult comedy won’t come back next season. Based on the UK series, Spy centers on Tim (Rob Corddry), a well intentioned father of a highly intelligent and verbal son (Mason Cook), who also happens to be his complete opposite, who inadvertently takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself a worthy father. Jeong will play the lithe and mischievous Examiner. The role is played by Robert Lindsay in the original series. Jeong is the first Community cast member to book a pilot. After an encouraging start to its fourth season earlier this month, Community dropped off precipitously, posting a series-low 1.1 18-49 rating for its episode last night. »
