Here is what the 39-year-old Spy Kids: All the Time in the World actor had to share:
Just Jared: Tell us about your new film.
Joel McHale: “Robert Rodriguez wanted to have a meeting and I obviously jumped at that meeting. If I had won some sort of auction item where I could hang out with Robert Rodriguez I would have bought that! Of course I jumped at it, he pitched me the story and I couldn’t say no. All the time stopping stuff in the film I loved. Having Jessica Alba play my wife, I’m sure was some sort of huge mistake (laughs) because someone who looks like her couldn’t be with me, but then again, my wife is beautiful, so I tricked her. Jeremy Piven I am also a huge fan of, and then the rest of the cast was crazy.”
JJ: What’s your favorite Robert Rodriguez film?
JM:”Sin City is one of those movies in like the beginning of the new way of make movies. El Mariachi is a masterpiece, he pretty much invented Mexican fable storytelling, he instantly invented this genre or brought it back. I loved Desperado and Once Upon a Time in Mexico.”
