Joel McHale stars in "Community" on NBC as Jeff Winger, a fast-talkin' lawyer whose degree has been revoked.

On the big screen, McHale stars as a charming but sleazy boss in Seth MacFarlane's live-action comedy of a boy and his teddy bear, "Ted," opposite Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis.

McHale was recently seen in "What's Your Number?," with Anna Faris, and "The Big Year," with Steve Martin, Jack Black and Owen Wilson. McHale was previously seen as a spy-hunting reporter married to Jessica Alba's character, the stepmother to his kids, in Robert Rodriguez's "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D." McHale also served as the host of the 2011 Independent Spirit Awards.

Joel McHale is perhaps best known as the star of "The Soup," a weekly entertainment show that satirizes pop culture and current events. He also serves as a writer and producer on the show. His quick wit and sharp comedic timing have made "The Soup" a pop culture phenomenon and led to the success of "The Soup Presents" specials. He also performs his stand-up act around the country to sold-out audiences.

In 2009 McHale was seen in director Steven Soderbergh's dark, comedic thriller "The Informant," opposite Matt Damon. In the film, he plays an FBI agent working with agri-business insider Mark Whitacre (Damon) to stop a price-fixing scam. The film is based on Kurt Eichenwald's 2000 bestseller, "The Informant: A True Story."

Born in Rome, Italy and raised in Seattle, Washington, McHale became a cast member on Comedy Central's "Almost Live," a show from a group of Seattle-based performers that featured a mixture of skit comedy and stand-up. Following his run on "Almost Live," McHale completed the Actor's Training Master Program at The University of Washington. After moving to Los Angeles, he landed roles on "Will & Grace," "CSI: Miami" and, most recently, "Pushing Daisies." He also jumped onto the big screen with roles in "Spider-Man 2" and "Lords of Dogtown."

McHale currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife and his two sons.
