Birthplace: Rome, Lazio, Italy

Joel McHale became one in a long line of wry, rapier-edged comedians to make a name for mercilessly eviscerating pop culture on E! Entertainment Television's signature comedy show before riding that job to fame well beyond the cable channel. Though having only minor acting credits under his belt, McHale's host duties for "The Soup" (E!, 2004-2015) earned him such buzz that in 2009, he was tapped to star in the much-anticipated NBC sitcom, "Community" leading to TV Guide to chose him as one of its "Fresh Faces of Fall 2009." A member of the University of Washington Huskies national championship football team, he made a name for himself as anything but a dumb jock, translating his snarky, iconoclastic dissection of "the festering petri dish of celeb culture" into stand-up comedy, as well as on-call pundit status on news shows such as "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" (MSNBC, 2003-2011). Along with the ratings success of "Community" came feature film offers, including a turn alongside Matt Damon in director Steven Soderbergh's "The Informant!" (2009). Demonstrating that rare capacity for both sarcasm and nice-guy affability, McHale - like Steve Carell before him - leveraged a small but zealous cable following into a more multifaceted acting career.

QUOTES FROM Joel McHale CHARACTERS

Mr. Weenie says: [Getting taken away by Bob and Bobbie] No! No!

Elliot says: [Terrified, witnessing all this] Noooo!

Elliot says: Giselle!

Elliot says: Isn't this great, Boog?

Boog says: What's great?

Elliot says: Well, not great that Weenie's been kidnapped, but great that we're livin' life on the edge! It's just like old times! Two guys, out on the road!

Elliot says: Have you seen my new horns? They're completely natural!

Boog says: [Disguised as a sheepdog] Elliot! Weenie! Thank goodness you safe! [Elliot and Mr. Weenie scream] Shh! What are you doin'?!

Elliot says: Who are you?!

Boog says: What do you mean?! I'm your best friend!

Elliot says: McSquizzy?!

Boog says: [Putting his hands on his hips] McSquizzy?! He doesn't even like you!

Elliot says: [Hands on hips] Look, I'm not talkin' to some random, overweight sheepdog about my personal relationships! [Crosses arms]

Boog says: It's me! Boog!

Elliot says: Boog's fat. [Whacks Boog's belly] No way.

Boog says: [Annoyed] Elliot!

Elliot says: Huh? Wow! It IS you! Did you lose weight?

Boog says: When did you start thinkin' McSquizzy was your BFF?!

Elliot says: Oh! Heh heh. Well, you were hibernating. And we were hangin'. Turns out we have a lot in common. [Puts his hands on his hips] We both like nuts.

Boog says: YOU are nuts!

Elliot says: Rabbit fight!

Boog says: Giselle, we gotta stick together out here. We're partners, right?

Elliot says: [Long gasp] BOOG! You traitor! [Pointing to Giselle] And you, traitor ex!

Giselle says: [Looks offended]

Elliot says: Enjoy your new-found partnership!

Boog says: Oh, come on, Elliot...

Elliot says: I don't need any of you! I'll find Mr. Weenie on my own! So long!

McSquizzy says: Hey! You're goin' the wrong way, ya choob!

Elliot says: [Sarcastically] Oh, thank you very much! This is a shortcut-- [Falls down the edge and screams] I'm okay, guys. You don't care.

McSquizzy says: Not really! Was that too harsh?

Boog says: Look, man. We need Giselle. She's a good tracker.

McSquizzy says: Yeah! And without her, we never would've found Weenie and that giant, tin-canned thing!

Elliot says: [Scoffs] Beginner's luck!

Elliot says: [scoffs] Beginner's luck!

Elliot says: Who are you?

Boog says: What do you mean? I'm your best friend!

Elliot says: McSquizzy?

Elliot says: BING! Shhh.

Elliot says: I can live without them!

Elliot says: Aaahhh!

Elliot says: I win!

Mr. Weenie says: Where are the others?

Elliot says: Oh, they're rescuing Mr. Weenie and Buddy. [Notices Buddy] Hey, Buddy.

Elliot says: RABBIT FIGHT!

Elliot says: Married!

Elliot says: I'm okay, guys.

Elliot says: [Along with Mr. Weenie] AAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

Elliot says: Shhhhh.

Elliot says: Bing!

Elliot says: [Investigating the Pet Paradiso parking lot] BING! Shhh.

Elliot says: I'm okay, guys! You don't care!

Elliot says: [After falling off the cliff] I'm okay, guys! You don't care.

McSquizzy says: Not really! Was that too harsh?

Elliot says: [Repeated line] Aaaahhh!

Elliot says: I'm not talking to a random, overweight sheepdog about my personal relationships. [Crosses his arms]

Elliot says: [After the argument; to Giselle] Hmph!

Elliot says: [after the argument; to Giselle] Hmph!

Elliot says: Forever AND after?

Elliot says: Who are you?

Boog says: What do you mean? I'm your best friend!

Elliot says: McSquizzy?

Boog says: McSquizzy? He doesn't even like you!

Elliot says: Look, I'm not talking to some random overweight sheepdog about my personal relationships.

Boog says: It's me, Boog!

Elliot says: Boog's fat. No way.

Boog says: [Annoyed] Elliot!

Boog says: [annoyed] Elliot!

Elliot says: Wow, it is you! Did you lose weight?

Boog says: This plan will never work!

Elliot says: Don't doubt me, number two friend. Trust the plan.

Elliot says: We're not even married yet, and you're already telling me what to do.

Elliot says: Close to you!

Elliot says: Why do these birds and ducks suddenly appear every time you're near?! Unless, like me, they long to be close to you.

McSquizzy says: You're going the wrong way, you choob!

Elliot says: Oh, thank you very much. This is a shortcut-- [Falls off a cliff]

Elliot says: Oh, thank you very much. This is a shortcut.. [falls off a cliff]

Boog says: Giselle, we gotta stick together out here. We're partners, right?

Elliot says: [Long gasp] Boog! You traitor! [to Giselle] And you, traitor ex! Enjoy your new-found partnership!

Boog says: Oh, come on, Elliot...

Elliot says: I don't need any of you. I'll find Mr. Weenie on my own!

Boog says: [After Elliot's horn falls off] Ooh, that just ain't right.

Elliot says: Oh, come on!

Boog says: Look, man, we need Giselle. She's a good tracker.

McSquizzy says: Yeah! And without her, we never would have found Weenie and that giant, tin-canned thing!

Elliot says: Beginner's luck!

Elliot says: Giselle!

Elliot says: RABBIT FIGHT!

Elliot says: Isn't this great, Boog?

Boog says: What's great?

Elliot says: Not great that Weenie's been kidnapped, but great that we're living life on the edge. It's just like old times! Two guys, out on the road!
