If you aren’t watching “Community,” you’re missing out. The NBC comedy, starring Joel McHale as smooth-talking ex-lawyer Jeff Winger, is one of the funniest shows on TV and a must-watch for pop culture junkies. McHale, also the host of “The Soup” on the E! Network, has been tiptoeing his way into feature films over the past couple of years.
Now, Variety reports the up-and-coming actor has joined Jessica Alba in Robert Rodriguez’s reboot of his own Spy Kids franchise, titled Spy Kids: All the Time in the World.
In the fourth entry in the franchise, McHale is set to play a “spy-hunting reporter married to Alba’s character.” Alba joined the project a while back, based (presumably) on her positive working relationship with Rodriguez – she starred in Sin City back in 2005 and recently worked with him again on Machete. In this film, she’ll play a reactivated former spy who is the stepmother of the new Spy Kids.
I’m glad to see McHale further establish himself in the feature film world, and I’m sure this movie will easily be a lot of fun for the audiences it’s aiming to please.
Spy Kids: All the Time in the World will hit theaters on August 19th, 2011.
