Joel McHale on His Upcoming Stint on ‘Sons of Anarchy’: “I had a ball of a time doing it”

Joel McHale is most known for his snarky commentary on his E! show The Soup or contributing to NBC’s zany comedy, Community.  So his guest spot on the notoriously dark Sons of Anarchy might come as a little shocking.

McHale is set to appear in two episodes on the FX drama, starting with the fifth season premiere on September 11.  “They came on The Soup and then Kurt [Sutter, the creator] said, ‘Would you wanna come on sometime?’  I’m like, ‘Yes!’—and that’s how I said it too—and so it worked out.”

For now, McHale is keeping mum on his role.  “I’m not going to say [if I kill anyone], because Kurt Sutter, the creator, will—it’ll be like a cartoon in that it’ll be like, ‘I can say this,’ and then I’ll turn around and he’ll be standing right there ready to punch me in the face,” he told Yahoo! News.  “No, I got to work with the lovely and beautiful Katey Sagal—most of my scenes were with her, but I did get to work with Jimmy Smits a couple of times and he’s pretty fantastic.  I had a ball of a time doing it.”

McHale had nothing but nice things to say about his visit to the Sons of Anarchy set.  “That operation was incredible over there,” the comedian said.  “The amount of stunts and locations that they’re doing in one day and on location is amazing…it is impressive.”

    When I heard the news a few months ago that Joel would be on Sons of Anarchy I was really wondering what kind of character he would play. Now I’m just ready for the new season to start and for the mystery to be solved. This season promises to be explosive with some new characters accompanying Joel and a more in-depth story line. I’m really interested to see how SAMCRO will get along now that JAX is in charge and anyone that thinks Clay will just sit idly by has another thing coming.
