Joel McHale lands a spot opposite Mila Kunis in Seth MacFarlane's Ted

Every week when I watch NBC's Community I wonder, "Why isn't Joel McHale in more movies?" He's hilarious on that show, and finally losing that "guy who hosts The Soup" label. Well it seems in 2011, my question is being answered.

McHale is set to star in three films next year, THE BIG YEAR with Owen Wilson and Steve Martin, WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER with Anna Farris and SPY KIDS with Jessica Alba.

But now he's adding a fourth title, as he's just landed a part opposite Mila Kunis in Seth MacFarlane's TED. The film stars Mark Wahlberg as a guy trying to marry his girlfriend (Kunis) who is constantly being hit on by her creepster boss (McHale), but first he must deal with his teddy bear (voiced by MacFarlane), who came alive from a childhood wish and is currently a womanizing, boozing slacker.

Yeah, that last part caught me off guard too, but it sounds like a decently funny concept. I'm a fan of Wahlberg in comedies these days. Not so much in video game movie adaptations though...

Extra Tidbit: McHale is also hosting the Independent Spirit Awards tomorrow.

He's a great actor. Community is the funniest show on television and it would be great to see McHale in more movies.

I'm also on board with having him play The Flash or Deadpool.

The vulgar, crude language will be oh so shocking. McFarlane is just a mastermind I tells ya' . . .

Good call, Ted gets better and better each week. I still say Joel McHale is a great replacement for Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. Maybe they'll make him the Flash.

I thought the same thing about Flash, but he's turning 40 this November so I doubt they'll even look at him even though he could easily pass for 30 (especially with those hairplugs ;)) and is in surprisingly good shape.

Green Box for Joel McHale
Red Box for that fucking teddy bear subplot that came out of left field.

Thus making this gray.
