For Joel McHale, living vicariously through his character Jeff Winger on NBC’s Community (8/7c) is a license to behave badly. “I get to play this egomaniac womanizer,” he says. “Hopefully I was never like that, but on screen I get away with it and look forward to saying it out loud. I like the character because he’s flawed, truly selfish.” Meanwhile, this multi-tasking Man of the Moment continues to host The Soup on E! and has roles in two upcoming movies, What’s Your Number? and The Big Year. He gave short, sweet and suitable answers to our six-pack of advice questions.
