A television personality most familiar to viewers for his stint as the host of the E! network's satirical pop-culture commentary The Soup (updated and reworked from the channel's original Talk Soup), Joel McHale grew up in the Seattle area and attended the University of Washington as a theater major, where he earned his master's in drama. After relocating to Los Angeles, McHale signed for guest roles and bit parts on series including Will & Grace and Oliver Beene, then landed a small role as Mr. Jacks in the Sam Raimi feature Spider-Man 2, followed by parts in Catherine Hardwicke's Lords of Dogtown and the sketch comedy outing The Onion Movie. On the side, McHale also emceed a series of Burger King commercials. He culled his broadest fan base on The Soup, however, distinguishing himself with sharp sarcasm and a quick wit. He had a breakthrough when he was cast as the lead in the cult hit sitcom Community on NBC, and he continued to act in projects such as The Informant!, Spy Kids: All the Time In the World, and 2012's Ted.

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?
