"Seinfeld" veteran Jason Alexander tweets that he's filming an episode of the NBC sitcom "Community" this week
"Community" might be losing a Chevy Chase, but it's gaining a Jason Alexander.
Former "Seinfeld" star Alexander, who played neurotic bumbler George Costanza on the series, will guest-star on the beleaguered (but cherished) NBC comedy, and while the actor is tight-lipped on the details, he promises that the episode will be a doozy.

"Filming a crazy episode of 'Community' this week," the actor tweeted early Tuesday. "Can't say much about it but it's a fun one."
It is not known what role Alexander, who guest-starred on "Two and a Half Men" earlier this year, will play on the series. An individual familiar with the casting told TheWrap that Alexander's episode will air in late spring next year.
Last month, news broke that Chevy Chase — who plays Pierce Hawthorne on the series — is leaving "Community," following an ugly standoff with the show's creator and former showrunner, Dan Harmon, and an incident when he reportedly tossed out the N-word, after complaining about his character's racism. Chase will appear in most of the episodes of the upcoming fourth season.
"Community" returns to the air Feb. 7.
