Joel McHale on Doing 'The Soup' 2.0 for Netflix and Why He Won't Target Trump

"Trending news, pop culture, social media, original sketches and more come together."

If that sounds suspiciously like McHale's former unscripted vehicle, E!'s beloved snarkfest The Soup, you're not far off. In fact, the actor and host doesn't do much to dispel the notion that the show is, more or less, The Soup 2.0, right down to its mixture of green screen commentary and pretaped sketches. This time, though, they're casting the net even wider.

"Now we're going to make fun of everything," McHale tells The Hollywood Reporter....

Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet Season 2 Adds Joel McHale & More

Netflix’s gory but lighthearted zombie comedy Santa Clarita Diet has added former Community star Joel McHale to its season 2 cast.

The series’ initial marketing campaign was pretty inventive, with little being initially known about Santa Clarita Diet, before the big reveal that married realtor Sheila (Drew Barrymore) had died, and now lived on a diet of human flesh.
