“The X-Files” will soon be back on the air with a new miniseries, and perhaps no one is more excited about that than Joel McHale.
The comedian is set to guest star on the show as “the anchor of a popular conservative Internet news network who becomes an unlikely ally for Fox Mulder,” and when McHale visited HuffPost Live on Wednesday, he couldn’t stop gushing about the opportunity.
“I have been such a huge fan of the show and the movies, so to be on set with them was truly surreal and thrilling and fun, and I still can’t believe my good fortune for being on the show,” McHale said. “And the script — it’s Chris Carter, so the script is dynamite, and he’s so nice on set.”
McHale had equally rapturous praise for the lead actors of the series.
