There has been some confusion over what character Matt Lucas will be playing in Season 4 of Community. TV Line has spoilers that clear up the picture.

When Matt Lucas was originally announced as a guest star on Community, it was reported by several news outlets that he would be playing the gang’s new History professor. But then Malcolm McDowell’s guest starring stint as said professor was announced, and everyone asked, well then, who is Lucas playing?

TV Line now reports that Lucas will play a character named Toby, a fanboy whom Abed meets at an Inspector Spacetime convention. Abed and Toby will quickly discover that not only are they kindred spirits, but they’ve “met” before online. That will cause some tension between best buds Abed and Troy.

No word yet on which episode Lucas is set to appear in when Season 4 of Community returns on October 19.
