Joel McHale may Replace Craig Ferguson and Host the WHCD

While Joel McHale is slated to take the coveted position of Craig Ferguson, this is unlikely to occur according to the acclaimed comedian. He spoke in an interview to Howard Stern on Tuesday morning of how he had not received any phone calls regarding the issue. 

He also said that were he offered the position he would still not consider doing it. “No one’s called,” says McHale, who is hosting the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner on Saturday. “I don’t think I could even do it with Community. I’m under contract. I don’t think legally I could.”

The reason given by McHale was that he was working on a contractual basis. It is in the nature of television contracts that they don’t allow any leeway as far as appearances on competing networks are concerned. Sometimes a brief cameo role may be tolerated, but on the whole it is the strict policy at TV broadcast shows to forbid outside assignments. 

Meanwhile, CBS could be up for some criticism from the public if it takes on McHale. Already Stephen Colbert is a white male and with McHale who is another white male joining the ranks, diversity would have to be kissed goodbye. 

McHale has gone ahead to laud Ferguson as a man of absolutely world class distinction. He said that he wondered what Ferguson lacked since he was such a great talent in his own right. 

“I thought he was so damn good at it,” McHale added about Ferguson. “He makes gobs of money, he doesn’t have to do anything anymore. His stand-up [career] is huge. He’s world famous when it comes to his stand-up. He makes way more money than that than it does with his late-night show.”

Listen the interview of Joel McHale On The Howard Stern Show.

However, one avenue that is still open for McHale is the WHCD (White House Correspondents Dinner). He is the main man (besides President Obama of course) who will get to host the proceedings of the event. 

Also called Nerdprom, the WHCD prompted a tweet from McHale that since no nerds would be there, he was definitely out. This was of course a rather jocular take on the matter. 

McHale will be present on the occasion and there is simply no doubt about that. Even former President Bill Clinton will be there and address the crowd of White House correspondents.

Now in theaters, is Deliver Us From Evil, a supernatural crime thriller that writer/director Scott Derrickson describes, “Serpico meets The Exorcist.”  While this may seem like the most unlikely pairing since Abbot and Costello first encountered The Wolfman, it’s actually a pretty good assessment of the film’s tone and style.  The Jerry Bruckheimer production tells the very-loosely-based-on-fact story of Ral ...
