Vince Gilligan’s next project will take him in front of the camera: The Breaking Bad creator/executive producer will guest star in an episode of Community, EW has learned.

Gilligan will make his acting debut by playing a smooth-talking gold digger who winds up exacerbating a fight between Annie (Alison Brie) and Abed (Danny Pudi). The episode, which is being filmed this week, will likely air in late winter or early spring.

Gilligan, who also will exec produce AMC’s Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and CBS’ detective drama Battle Creek, won’t be the only Bad alum appearing on NBC’s community college-set comedy this season. Jonathan Banks will play a criminology professor in 11 episodes. (Banks’ former co-star Giancarlo Esposito popped up in seasons 3 and 4.)

Other famous faces who will grace season 5 of Community include Walton Goggins, Nathan Fillion, Robert Patrick, Paget Brewster, Kumail Nanjiani, Tim Heidecker, Eric Wareheim, Katie Leclerc, Ben Folds and Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz. John Oliver, Rob Corddry and Brie Larson are among the returning guests.

Community kicks off season 5 on Jan. 2.
