'American Idol's' Katharine McPhee having 'hysterical' time on 'Community'

katharine-mcphee-320.jpgIt's just as we suspected: Katharine McPhee is having a blast on "Community."

"Having a great time on the set of NBC's Community! Ken Jeong is hysterical! But pretty much everyone rocks!" she tweeted Monday (Jan. 11).

As Zap2it reported, the "American Idol" finalist will guest star on the NBC sitcom playing Chevy Chase's step-daughter as well as a possible love interest for Jeff (Joel McHale). What? How can he do that to Britta?

Well, if the tweet is any indication, it appears that perpetually angry Senor Chang (Jeong) will also be in the episode. Si, es bueno!

Former "Idol" contestants are performers at heart, so it's no surprise that some have also pursued acting. In fact, Carrie Underwood was recently announced to guest star on an episode of "How I Met Your Mother."

McPhee has performed in high school plays and musicals. Her professional acting credits include appearances on "Ugly Betty," "CSI: NY" and the big-screen comedy "The House Bunny."
