As if Joel McHale was not busy enough courtesy of “Community” and his work on “The Soup,” he has now found yet another way to both stretch his schedule and work his way into dramatic television — an arc of “Sons of Anarchy” season 5.
On the same day that the “Community” panel was happening at Comic-Con Friday, it was revealed that McHale is specifically going to play the character of Warren, a con man who somehow managed to get himself involved in some nasty business after making the wrong person angry with him. Based on this description alone, we have a feeling that is is probably not going to end well.
We know that McHale is going to appear in at least two episodes, and it shouldn’t impact his abilities to perform on “Community” in any way. (After all, show producers and studio Sony Pictures TV have the right to nix any other potential TV gig if they feel it is going to interfere with their production thanks to his series regular status.) McHale and “Sons of Anarchy” showrunner Kurt Sutter do have a history together, as he and his wife / show star Katey Sagal have stopped by “The Soup” in the past. The two shows also have something else in common — despite each receiving rave reviews and having plenty of loyal fans, they tend to get routinely snubbed by Emmy voters. Will that continue again this year? We have a feeling we are going to find out as the nominations are announced within the next week.
Do you think that this is a good move for both “Sons of Anarchy” and McHale? To find out more information about “Community” at Comic-Con this year, be sure and check out the story over at this link.
