Fox’s upcoming X-Files revival will be packed with familiar faces, from Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) to the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis), but it will also feature a fair share of series newcomers. Today, it was announced that The Flash‘s Robbie Amell and Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose would be taking on pivotal parts in the six-episode series.
Amell is said to be playing the “smart, smooth” Agent Miller, while Ambrose will take on the “sharp, confident” Agent Einstein. In typical X-Files fashion, not much more than that is known about either character.
Mitch Pileggi is also returning for the new string of episodes as Skinner, while other fresh faces include Joel McHale (of Community and The Soup fame) as a conservative talk show host who allies himself with Mulder under unexpected circumstances, and Annet Mehendru, Flight of the Conchords‘ Rhys Darby and »

Joel McHale opened the 2015 Espys Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a lot of jokes for athletes and sports fans. As always, the host of “The Soup” nailed the sarcasm: “I know I’m the E! personality that you are so interested to see.”
He didn’t hold back anything during his opening monologue, handing out the digs left and right. He came out playing horse to Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza and then noted that Donald Trump’s first act as president would be deporting Espinoza back to Mexico; and that the jockey would be fined by the NFL for whipping a three-year-old… horse, that is.
The evening also supplied many more burns and highlights:

Joel McHale is a super fan of The X-Files. McHale will also be on The X-Files. Needless to say, McHale is stoked. "I was pretty intimidated by being on one of my favorite shows of all-time, and i had to shave," The Soup host told E! News during a recent sit-down. "I was so excited…It was like I had won some sort of lottery that i got to be on this show." The X-Files is coming back for a six-episode event series with leads David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising the iconic roles of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively.

Ariana Grande is not—we repeat not—safe from Joel McHale!

Still shocked to hear Russell Wilson is not having sex with his girlfriend Ciara? You aren't alone! Just a few days before Joel McHale hosts the 2015 Espys, we had to ask The Soup co-host about the biggest pop culture headline taken from the world of sports. As it turns out, the comedian is almost at a loss for words. "First of all, he's the greatest quarterback in Seattle Seahawks history for winning that Super Bowl and going back a second time," he told E! News exclusively. "About their dating? I think it's fine." But did he hear what the champion recently shared with San Diego Pastor Miles McPherson? You know, the moment where he said "God spoke to me" and »

As Joel McHale, known for “Community” and “The Soup,” prepares to host the 2015 Espy Awards, he shared with Variety what’s in store. The E! host even joked about fellow network star Caitlyn Jenner, who will receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award, drawing most of the attention.
“I can’t imagine what event is happening during this awards ceremony that would just draw people to it… I think it’s me,” he noted with heavy sarcasm. “Finally the guy from the Dunkin’ Donut ads that were all over Facebook last month is hosting an awards show!”
McHale was understanding about responding to his umpteenth take on Jenner’s Espy award. “I think I’ve answered more questions about Caitlyn than Caitlyn has,” McHale said.
“Call Me Caitlyn” may have been the most recent headline-grabbing story about an athlete, but the sports section provided a lot of other fodder and scandals. »

"We were nominated in the category of best thing that isn't a show. We got in a lucky year to be up against the President and Zach Galifianakis," says "The Soup" executive producer K.P. Anderson about his show's first-ever Emmy nomination last year (watch below). He adds, "It was really exciting. It was a great night.
