Joel McHale joins X Files revival
Star of Community & The Soup is the first new face for the 2016 series.
Joel McHale (Community, The Soup) has signed up to star alongside David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in The X Files revival.
He will play Tad O’Malley – the anchor of a popular conservative internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Mulder (Duchovny).
McHale is the first newcomer to be added to a cast that already includes Duchovny, Anderson (Scully) and Mitch Pileggi as Walter Skinner.
The role is his first role since Community wrapped up its sixth series, screening in Australia on Stan.
The X Files is set to return in January 2016.
