According to Chicago Tribune, actor and comedian Joel McHale will be the featured performer and host of the annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. The event will be attended by members of the media, celebrities, and the U.S. president.
McHale is the star of NBC's comedy "Community" and is the host of E! network's "The Soup." "He's sharp, funny, and just the type of comic who can navigate the unique challenge of our dinner, making fun of Democrats, Republicans and especially the news media," WHCA President and McClatchy Co political editor Steven Thomma said in a statement.
In a Twitter post after the announcement, McHale said: "My material will be equally offensive to all & over within 30 min - just like a Congressional work year."
After guest starring on NBC's oft-overlooked Community, everyone's favorite space cowboy turned crime solver, Nathan Fillion, bought the entire crew pizza. Surveying the crowd of hungry workers was a cutout of Nathan as Captain Hammer from Joss Whedon's acclaimed Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog. Nathan seems like such an awesome guy.
