Vince Gilligan is breaking "Community."

The "Breaking Bad" creator, who wrapped up his acclaimed AMC meth drama in September, has been booked to guest star on the NBC comedy "Community," in what will be Gilligan's acting debut.

As first reported by, Gilligan, whose post-"Breaking" gigs include the upcoming CBS drama "Battle Creek" and the "Breaking Bad" spinoff "Better Call Saul," will play a silver-tongued gold digger who worsens the tension between Annie Edison (Alison Brie) and Abed Nadir (Danny Pudi).

The episode is expected to air in late winter or early spring.

Gilligan's "Community" stint will constitute a "Breaking Bad" reunion of sorts; Jonathan Banks, who played meth-ring enforcer Mike Ehrmantraut, has booked a recurring role on the series as Pat Nichols, a criminology professor whose background is in the military and police work.
