Joel McHale: What the star of The Soup makes of British TV

25 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Community star and host of the Us answer to TV Burp performed for Barack Obama recently. But if he thought that was tough, now he has to sit through Last Of The Summer Wine

Joel McHale is still buzzing after the comedy gig of a lifetime. Earlier this year, he got the call from Barack Obamas office to do a turn at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner (previous performers: Jay Leno, Conan OBrien, Bob Hope). It was the most exhilarating and weirdest moment of my life, he says. It was like someone said, Hey, ever parachuted before? Nope. And then you just get pushed off a cliff.

McHale will be known to TV comedy aficionados as overbearing egotist Jeff Winger in Community, but the role that scored him the White House gig is his weekly stint as host of the E! channels live TV-recap show The Soup essentially a trendier, »

Joel McHale And Tony Hale Parody ‘Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee’

7 July 2014 4:28 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Jerry Seinfeld's idiosyncratic Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee has become a popular target for parodies, and the latest comedians taking aim at Seinfeld's web series are Joel McHale and Tony Hale. Hale joined McHale on The Soup, where they created their own version of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee centered around cocaine. The video begins, as all Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee episodes do, with a description of a classic ride. Once Community star McHale has finished waxing poetic about his 1959 Ford Skyliner, he picks up Hale, and the man best known for his role as Buster Bluth proceeds to point out all the houses in the neighborhood where it is possible to score coke. The parody arrives during a week of milestones for both Seinfeld and The Soup. July 5th marked the 25th anniversary of the debut of Seinfeld, while July 1st served as the 10th anniversary of E! »

Watch Joel McHale and Tony Hale Score Some Coke

5 July 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The Soup host Joel McHale one-ups Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee with the spoof "Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine." He tools around Los Angeles in a 1959 Ford Skyliner with Veep's Tony Hale and asks him lots of casual questions about his work and fiendish cocaine habit. "So Tony, you get a lot of cocaine around here?" Of course! Tony tells him, "I was doing Taming of the Shrew high in a parking lot in the East Village." Eventually, things take a turn for the worse, because cocaine. Don't do drugs kids! »

Watch Joel McHale and Tony Hale score drugs in 'Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine'

5 July 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

L.A.-area dealers, beware: Tony Hale will not pay for his drugs.

That’s one of the many takeaways from “Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine,” The Soup’s Joel McHale-hosted spoof of Jerry Seinfeld’s friendlier, Coffee-ier web series. The video shows the cult-sitcom star picking up the, um, other cult-sitcom star for a nice top-down ride around Southern California. They discuss Arrested Development, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and how Tony Hale likes to numb away his shameful past with the power of cocaine.

Funny stuff! And hey, it’s not a bad day for an on-point homage to Jerry »

Expectation vs reality: Sherlock, Hannibal and 5 more surprise TV hits

5 July 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Some television shows feel like they're going to be smash hits before anyone's seen a frame of footage; usually because of the writers working on it, the network's reputation with its genre, or the popularity of the actors involved.

Other programmes even feel like they're simply too big to fail; such as HBO's Game of Thrones and AMC's The Walking Dead, which also benefit from having rich source material to mine and a ready-made, evangelical audience.

But what about the TV shows that felt like bad ideas before they'd aired - or even during their debut season - yet managed to overcome widespread uncertainties and grow into well-regarded programmes it's hard to imagine we were ever unsure about?

Let's take a look at some recent examples of popular TV shows that didn't initially feel like they'd work, but proved the doubters wrong...

Exclusive On Set Interview: Joel McHale - Deliver Us From Evil

3 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Fans of "Community" and "The Soup" might be surprised when they see the Joel McHale that’s appearing in the supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil when it debuts this week in theaters everywhere...

Light of the usual trademark levity McHale has perfected, his character, Butler, is a physically intimidating cop with a penchant for daggers.

Standing in the pouring rain after a scene where McHale was chasing someone (or something) through the weathered streets of the South Bronx, Joel’s sense of humor suddenly came roaring back, even though the surprisingly tall comedian still towered over us as we started the interview in between takes.

Joel McHale: Hello, nerds.

Dread Central: What led you to take your first role in a horror film?

Jm: It’s my fourth.

DC: Really?

Jm: Nah, I can’t remember. What made me want to take it? Because it’s an incredible »

Exclusive On Set Interview: Scott Derrickson - Deliver Us From Evil

3 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Scott Derrickson, as evidenced by this interview, is one of the most thoughtful, sure-handed American directors the genre has working in the field today. If you’re not convinced of that after Sinister alone, then Deliver Us From Evil just might make you a believer.

Inspired by the true events of officer Ralph Sarchie and his dealings with the occult and assistance with actual exorcisms in some of the darkest corners of New York City, Derrickson and company will do their worst in trying to convince us that these occurrences are based in fact.

In doing so, Derrickson will also probably wind up scaring the crap out of you.

When we spoke to Derrickson on set in the South Bronx back in July of 2013, his usual soft, inviting demeanor was still on full display even though he was neck deep in the minute-to-minute stress of shooting a nuanced film that »

'Deliver Us From Evil' Review: 10 Things You Should Know About the Eric Bana Horrorfest

2 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Deliver Us From Evil" is the latest sweaty summer offering from Scott Derrickson, the co-writer/director of "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and "Sinister." Eric Bana stars as Ralph Sarchie, a special ops police officer in one of the most dangerous precincts in Manhattan. Sarchie and his partner (played by Joel McHale) are used to seeing the worst that humans can do to each other, but some of the crimes on their beat have a supernatural flavor to them. Enter Father Mendoza (Edgar Ramirez), a priest who smokes and drinks and performs exorcisms. Sarchie's no believer, but when things start going bump in his house -- and threatening his wife (Olivia Munn) and child -- that's another story.

Derrickson and co-writer Paul Harris Boardman were inspired by the real Ralph Sarchie's tales of supernatural stuff he saw during his career as a NYPD, as detailed in his book "Beware the Night. »

Joel McHale is not a name you’d expect to see involved in a horror film. From his incredibly funny hosting gig on E Entertainment’s “The Soup” to his work in films such as Ted and of course on the fan-loving series “Community,” he has a knack for earning a laugh or two. The guy is very funny. Thankfully, while he does display his humorous side in the horror thriller Deliver Us From Evil, he also shows off a little skill from drama »

Yahoo Saves Community For 13-Episode Sixth Season To Air On Yahoo Screen

30 June 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Community fans can finally breathe. Just when things were beginning to really look hopeless, Yahoo as stepped in, and is going to give us the chance to see the sixth season.

Community fans are certainly a vocal crowd, and the show has managed a sort of cult status, in addition to ratings that are, in today’s world, actually not all that bad. McHale and crew will get at least 13 more episodes of community college (because who knows what will happen if the run does well enough) in their continuing effort to never graduate from anything.

The news makes for an interesting step for Yahoo Screen, and hopefully one that marks a future trend.

Get all the info below, and make sure you keep your sights set on Community. Given the last six or seven episodes of the show, I have a feeling this could be one of those truly »

'Community' Season 6 Will Debut Exclusively on Yahoo! Screen

30 June 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yahoo and Sony Pictures Television today announced that Community will return this Fall for a highly-anticipated sixth season, with 13 new episodes available exclusively on Yahoo Screen.

See you in the fall. #CommunityLivesOnpic.twitter.com/HSIzD0StT9

— Yahoo Screen (@YahooScreen) June 30, 2014

Community is a smart, exuberant comedy that is consistently ranked as one of the most inventive and original half-hours on television. This ensemble comedy centers around a tight-knit group of friends who all met at what is possibly the world's worst educational institution - Greendale Community College.

At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup), a fast-talking lawyer who was dis-barred until he could earn a legitimate degree. He chose Greendale, thinking he could breeze through the mediocre school without a hitch. However, he soon found himself the reluctant leader of a disparate group of misfits, all stuck at Greendale for different reasons.

Joel McHale Says He Has No Interest in Hosting a Latenight Talk Show

30 June 2014 12:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joel McHale has made it clear that he is not interested in his own latenight show.

“F— no!” McHale told Conan O’Brien on the TBS laffer Friday night. “Who would do that? That is so much work, right? I’d be worried I’d die under an avalanche of used suits.”

“I’m funny about once a week,” McHale remarked, referring to the scheduling of his E! talk-show “The Soup.” “I’m on the E! network, where can you go higher from there?”

The statement effectively quashes rumors that McHale would step in to replace Craig Ferguson, who will be exiting CBS’ “Late Late Show” at the end of the year.

Rumors began swirling that the “Community” star would take over for Ferguson when he retweeted a photo of him with CBS chief Leslie Moonves and his wife, Julie Chen. However, McHale clarified that the photo was just that — a photo. »
