Joel McHale shoved the HitFix microphone into my chin, forehead, front teeth and up my nose while at the San Diego Comic-Con this year. The “Soup” host and comedian, as predicted, showed no holds barred when it came to handling press interviews for the second season of NBC’s “Community,” but was scant (surprise!) when it came to details and spoilers.
He did say that the cast had already previewed the first two scripts of Season Two, and that shooting would begin soon. As for McHale’s character Jeff’s romantic turmoil with Britta (Gillian Jacobs) from Season One would be tackled “head-on” ASAP.
“The good news is that… all the questions left hanging in the season finale are answered head-on, there’s no ignoring of any of the issues left hanging. And Betty White,” he slyly mentions. The hot-topic “Golden Girls” gal will play an anthropology professor at Greendale Community College this fall. Will she be on for more than one episode? “I hope she does. Betty, please.”
McHale also teased that his character will be sporting a new breast in the middle of his torso and that he’s been brushing up on his (South) German accent.
