Joel McHale is a super fan of The X-Files. McHale will also be on The X-Files. Needless to say, McHale is stoked.
"I was pretty intimidated by being on one of my favorite shows of all-time, and i had to shave," The Soup host told E! News during a recent sit-down. "I was so excited…It was like I had won some sort of lottery that i got to be on this show."
The X-Files is coming back for a six-episode event series with leads David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising the iconic roles of Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively. Chris Carter, the show's creator, is back as writer and director for several episodes. When The X-Files returns, well, things are a little different, yet the same.
