Joel McHale is married to Jessica Alba ... on the big screen.
Variety reports that the Community star is joining the cast of Dimension Films' Spy Kids 4 as the husband of Alba's character. The trade describes McHale's character as "a spy-hunting reporter." And wouldn't you know it? Alba's wife (and stepmother to McHale's kids) is a spy who gets reactivated.
Writer-director Robert Rodriguez will be back behind the camera for this 3D project, which is slated for release August 19, 2011. Production begins soon in Austin, TX.
The stars of the first three films -- Antonio Banderas, Alexa Vega and Daryl Sabara -- will reportedly appear in cameo roles.
