Joel McHale Joins X-Files Reboot

The X-Files is returning and the anticipation is killing us!  David Duchovny & Gillian Anderson are reprising their roles as Fox Mulder & Dana Scully.  The list of guest stars starts off with a surprising addition. First to sign on is Joel McHale, current host of The Soup and the star of Community.

McHale is set to play Tad O’Malley, the anchor of a conservative Internet news network (think Bill O’Reilly) who becomes an unlikely ally to Fox Mulder.

The X-Files will return on January  24, 2016 on FOX for a six episode run and promises to deliver the same epic storytelling the series is known for.  The show’s creator, Chris Carter, is leading the way for the series to return to TV.  The last time we saw Mulder & Scully was in the 2008 movie, The X-Files: I Want to Believe.
