'Community': Malcolm McDowell Arrives To Teach The Greendale Gang (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Get a sneak peek at Malcolm McDowell on "Community"!

The study group at Greendale Community College has their next class all picked out: They'll take "The History of Ice Cream," which should get them all easy A's.

There's a small problem with their plan, however: They don't get into the popular class, and they have to take European History instead. McDowell (who, ironically enough, appeared in "Easy A") plays their new professor, and he's about as happy and well-adjusted as all their previous teachers (which is to say, he's not happy and well-adjusted at all).

Experience the new teacher's pomposity in HuffPost TV's exclusive clip above from "Alternative History of the German Invasion" (airing Thurs., Feb. 28 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC). By the way, Thursday's episode also features the return of the German foosball jerks from last season, as well as the re-appearance of Chang (Ken Jeong).

Check out NBC's official episode description bellow:

After losing out in registration for "The History of Ice Cream," the study group begins their European History class with Professor Noel Cornwallis (Malcolm McDowell, "Entourage," "Franklin & Bash"). To make matters worse, the group encounters the return of the arrogant German students from last season, which Jeff (Joel McHale) and Shirley (Yvette Nicole Brown) faced over the foosball table. Meanwhile, much to Dean Pelton's (Jim Rash) dismay, Chang (Ken Jeong) makes his return to campus.

"Community" airs on Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
