McHale joins the gritty FX drama as Warren, a handsome con man who picks the wrong person to double-cross.

Additional details surrounding his role are being kept under wraps, but we can confirm that he’ll be working closely with Sons matriarch Katey Sagal. (The actress cryptically tweeted the above photo of the two together on set Thursday.)

This guest spot reunites McHale with Sagal and SOA creator Kurt Sutter, who both dropped by the actor’s other series, E!’s The Soup, last November. (Press PLAY below for a peek at their hilarious cameo.)

    Joel on SoA = Win

  3. Lia says:

    more stunt casting, who’s next? Sponge Bob ?

  4. Dick Whitman says:

    I have yet to see if Joel can pull a dramatic role so I’m letting the Community enthusiast in me write my reaction: AWESOME!

  5. Chris says:

    This is too epic to be real

  6. Carmen says:

    SO EXCITED! Especially because he’s gonna be working with Katey! Can’t wait to see those two together!

  7. Ari says:

    Is this true? I just can’t believe it. I want to believe it but I’m having a hard time doing so.

  8. Jellymoff says:

    I saw the headline in my facebook feed and thought it was a joke. Cool!

  9. Gerald says:

    I love the show, but this almost seems like a joke. I mean, JM is perfectly fine in Community but I just don’t think I can take him seriously as a dramatic actor….

  10. M says:

    I think Joel is going to be fantastic as a dramatic actor. Can’t wait!

  11. Andre says:

    Anyone doubting Joel McHales ability to Drama has clearly never seen The Informant or have forgot about his cameo n Spiderman 2 brief but dramatic with one joke during it.

    He can do Drama and Mr. Sutter knows how to write peoples strengths.

    ps This is definatly happening u can confirm on Sutters Twitter account

    The thing is – actors who do comedy really well always seem to be able to pull off ‘straight’ drama much better than ‘dramatic’ actors are able to switch to comedy. I’m sure he’ll do a great job…

    • Temis says:

      I’ve noticed that too – don’t dismiss a comic actor, I’ve seen many instances where they can switch to drama without missing a beat.

    • Jason says:

      I heard somewhere Joss Whedon has a similar outlook as well. Apprently actors who can make you laugh can easily flip that switch to make you cry. Congrats Joel!

    Does anyone know when the new season begins? Thank You

  14. Abe Froman says:

    Joel was in TED.

    SoA has funny bits too, so I see no reason why he shouldn’t be in it.

    Community isn’t a full on comedy either

  15. Angela says:

    Oooh. Okay, will be keeping my eyes peeled for those episodes. Can’t wait to find out when that’s expected to start.
