'Community' Is Hiring! Filling the Greendale Yearbook with More Awesome Human Beings

by AOL TV Staff, posted Jul 28th 2011 11:00AM
It's been a busy week for the casting directors of 'Community.' Greendale Community College is in hiring mode, and the faculty is freshly stocked with two new, sufficiently awesome (and yes, a little random) teachers: Michael K.

Jay Leno tries to get to the bottom of it all on the 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC).

What are Wilson's quirks? Well, he insists on wearing bright orange sneakers, which led MLB to fine him $1,000 for "non-conforming" shoes. Brian had said he was punished for having "too much awesome" on his feet.

... But that's nothing. Wilson also thinks he learned ninja skills in a dream, has a mohawk -- and now sports an enormous beard, which he dyed black. In response to this, Giants fans adopted the slogan "Fear the Beard."
