Joel McHale To Host The Next ESPYs

(via Deadline)

We’re guessing that McHale will feel a little more comfortable doing roast jokes of professional athletes than having to do roast jokes about journalists and politicians, then follow President Obama in front of some of the world’s most powerful people.

The ESPYs are returning in July and they have gotten Joel McHale to come aboard for host the night’s festivities. You’ll get to see it broadcast live on ABC, which will undoubtedly will make for some memorable moments, both planned and unplanned.

The ESPYs have only had Samuel L. Jackson return as host, but we’ll all see if McHale pulls off a hosting job that will have him back on July 15th.
