There’s nothing sexier than a cute guy with an even cuter sense of humor. That’s the reason why I became a fan of Joel McHale. He’s such a riot on E!’s The Soup and on NBC’s Community.
With his dapper fashion sense, propensity to go shirtless and comfortableness with gay humor, there’s a misconception that the 41-year-old actor is secretly gay. It’s not his fault that he fuels the fantasies of gay man with his good looks and biting wit.
In a semi-serious interview with the Advocate magazine, he address the gay rumors, flirtatious advances by men, his man crushes and many more. I love a straight man who’s comfortable with his sexuality. Check out a few of my favorite excerpts from his chat with the publication.
“Community needs all the help it can get, so thank God for our gay fans. Our young gay fans especially are the loudest and most Internet-savvy. That also speaks to the quality of our show, which I think is highly intelligent.”
“That’s probably true. The first three seasons all came out of [creator and former show-runner] Dan Harmon’s brain, and instead of creating a traditional gay character, he went in the direction of Jim Rash’s character, Dean Pelton, where you’re not really sure what’s going on with his sexuality — other than the fact that he likes to play dress-up and has a Dalmatian fetish.”
“Much like in Say Anything, guys usually stand outside my house with a boombox over their head blasting the Indigo Girls. Actually, guys sometimes will tweet me, “I’m in L.A. Staying at such-and-such hotel. What do you think?” Of course, it all depends on the quality of the hotel. Back when I had just moved to L.A., before I was on any show, I was meeting a friend at a bar connected to this restaurant we went to. When I got there, I was the only one in the bar. While I was messing with my phone, I didn’t notice the whole bar fill up with men. Guys kept coming up, asking, “What’s going on, man?” I figured they’d seen the commercials I was in. Then I realized that these men were coming on to me because I was alone in a gay bar.”
“Just a very quick, courteous blowjob.”
“It’s flattering. I always find it really weird when guys flip out over someone thinking they might be gay. If a guy gets offended by that, there’s something’s wrong with him. I take it as a compliment.”
“Ooh, boy, I have so many. Josh Gad. Brian Williams. Patrick Stewart. Nathan Fillion. Kobe Bryant. Chaz Bono.”
“Because they didn’t give me any advance notice! All of a sudden on set they were like, “Hey, you wanna do this?” No. You have to pay for this ass, my friend.”
