Joel McHale Covers 'Emmy' Magazine

Joel McHale strikes a pose in this spread for Emmy magazine’s latest issue – he’s also the mag’s cover model!

Here’s what the 39-year-old Community star and host of The Soup had to share in the mag’s first issue of 2011:

On TV experiencing another golden age: “”Someone once told me that 90 percent of all art is crap, and 10 percent is tremendous. I think it’s the same way with TV. And there’s just more TV than there was, so the more crap we see, the more great stuff there is. It’s getting worse and better at the same time. Anyway, it must be a golden age. I’m on two shows!”

On what he said to convince his wife to move to L.A. so he could pursue acting: “Just give me five years to see if it can work. And if it doesn’t, I’ll go back to Seattle and I’ll do weather and traffic on a country station, and that’ll be fine.”

On how he’d always wanted to act: “Acting was always my first love. That’s what I trained as. I just ended up doing all these other things in between.”

    I just saw the movie with “The Informant” and he was good. I wasn’t expecting to see him so it was quite a shock when he came on screen. He’s handling his fame better than the guy that did Talk Soup. Remember that guy got an ABC job and he quit and never found success. Atleast Mchale is careful not to quit The Soup yet.

  • AmICynical?

    Love this guy…makes it very hard for me to stay on the treadmill at the gym when I’m tuning in to The Soup :)

    I love Joel and the entire Community cast.
    Now that Friday Night Lights is over (sob!) Community is my favorite ensemble cast on TV.
