Joel McHale: I’m Always an NBC Fan, Even ‘The Biggest Loser’

By , March 5, 2010

“I think NBC has always been at the cutting edge of network comedy,” McHale told Fancast at Wednesday’s PaleyFest 2010 event for his sitcom. “Thursday night comedy on NBC is one of the most famous nights in network TV and has been for years. To be included in the same group as Amy Poehler, Steve Carell and Tina Fey, just to be in that company, is awesome.”

At the suggestion of trash-talking his own network, McHale joked, “Trash NBC? Why would I do that? No, hey, I love ‘The Biggest Loser,’ I really do.”

On this Thursday’s episode, McHale disrobes and displays a sculpted physique for a nude pool game, opposite veteran comedy actor Blake Clark. He shared details of the nude shoot with Fancast.

“As soon as I found out I was going to be naked, which was about a week and a half or two weeks in advance, at the table read, I said, ‘Oh, I should now starve myself of all sugar and all carbs and try to do some push-ups,’” McHale says. “I was like, ‘Oh boy, here we go.’ I had a lot of eggs, which was really pleasant for my family. The nudey underwear was so tight and small, I could put regular underwear over it. If you put tighty-whiteys over it, you wouldn’t even know.”

Is ‘Community’s Annie Ready To Loosen Up?

By , February 4, 2010

Fancast visited Community, and here is the highlight from their visit:

It was comedic chaos when Fancast visited the set of NBC’s ‘Community‘ (Thursdays at 8/7c).

Things started out innocently enough with Ken Jeong dressing down Chevy Chase – or, technically, the veteran actor’s alter ego – as an “Old Navy hipster doofus,” but then they swiftly spiraled out of control thereafter.

“I play 18 on the show, but I think some of the writers forget that I have a nice rack!” laughs Brie, who braves a bikini (and less) in this month’s issue of Complex. Referring to Annie and Jeff’s flirtation, she says, “The fan feedback was crazy. There are even YouTube videos about them” – more often than not forwarded to the actress by the taunting and Internet-savvy Jeong.

Brie says that while such viral mash-ups are “flattering and I appreciate that people are making them, it’s funny to see [Annie and Jeff] cast in a totally different light.” Whether the study buddies’ spark is reignited in future episodes, she says, remains to be seen.
