In the words of Shirley herself, “ooh, that’s nice!”

EW has confirmed that Yvette Nicole Brown, who’s known for playing the god-loving and guilt-mongering housewife Shirley on Community, has been cast in the CBS reboot of The Odd Couple. Brown will play the messy Oscar Madison’s (Matthew Perry) assistant Dani.

Brown joins a cast that includes Thomas Lennon as neat-freak Felix and Wendell Pierce as Teddy in the new version of the iconic ’70s sitcom. Brown is replacing Sarah Baker in the role, which is being adjusted from series regular to a recurring part to accommodate Brown’s schedule on Community.
