Joel McHale Covers 'Emmy' Magazine
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.”
