"Community" has cast B.J. Novak to guest-star in the Season 5 finale this spring. "The Office" star will make a cameo playing himself.

Other details about the role are spotty, but EW.com reports that Novak will be a "TV star in a sexy new series." Obviously, the series is not "The Office," not if "sexy" and "new" are the descriptors.

Although there is no set date for the Season 5 finale -- which would double as the series finale if NBC doesn't go the "six seasons and a movie" route -- it is expected to air at some point in April. Novak will appear in the first half of the two-part final episode.

"Community" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on NBC and will return to the schedule on Feb. 27, following the Winter Olympics.
