Hailing from Seattle, Washington, and blessed with Irish and Nordic ancestral roots, Joel McHale is one of the whitest and most depressed television hosts around.
Armed with sunscreen, his Mariners jersey and plenty of Wellbutrin, Joel joined the cast of Comedy Central's Almost Live!. During that time, he realized maybe he should learn to act. Following in the footsteps of Patrick Duffy, Joel managed to complete the Professional Actor Training Program in 2000 to get his masters at the University of Washington, where he honed his craft, played videogames and discovered his true passion was single-malt scotch.
Finally seeing his day in the sun, Joel took off for Southern California to pursue a future in acting, and he fell in love...with Korean barbecue. Well satiated with marinated beef, he quickly landed parts in Will & Grace and Oliver Beene. He appears in the blockbuster Spider-Man 2, as well as the upcoming big screeners The Onion Movie and The Lords of Dogtown. Obsessed Joel McHale fans (or bored people) may also recognize him from the latest run of Burger King commercials, which feature him as the office jerk.
As host of E!'s The Soup, Joel brings his unique sense of humor and personal style (okay, so the E! wardrobe guy picks that out) to viewers as he counts down the most absurd, hysterical, wacky and surreal moments in the world of reality TV and celebrity each week. It's something he definitely relates to...other than the celebrity part.
Joel lives with his hot wife, Sarah, in the exclusive city of Glendale, California. He likes all animals.
