FACE TIME with Kevin McHale
Heat Magazine (19-25 July 2014)
How the hell does a Glee star end up hosting a new E4 panel show called Virtually Famous?
It’s a bit random for a US TV star to end up hosting a UK panel show. How did it come about?
It was random. I did an episode of Whose Line Is It Anyway? [the improvised comedy show, which is still running in the States], and one of the producers was working for Talkback in London and she suggested me as a host. She had to explain what the hell panel shows were first, because we don’t really have them in the States.
This show is about online and social media stars. How does it work?
It’s about the internet’s biggest contributors. The people who made those classic YouTube clips, for example, We actually bring these people on to the show.
Do you have to do loads of research on the British panelists?
Yeah, quite a lot, although I’m starting to suspect the producers intentionally keep information from me! It’s becoming a running joke that I don’t know the shows that guests are famous for. We had Rachel Riley on, and I had no idea what the hell Countdown was. It sounded really boring as a concept and I couldn’t believe you only win a dictionary.
Is it true you’re a big Anglophile?
Yeah, growing up I was obsessed with Britain. I had British flags in my room and was really into the band McFly when I was 13.
It’s the last season of Glee this year - will you be emotional when it finishes?
It will be weird.
Is there one Glee moment that was your favorite?
Hmm…selfishly, when we did Proud Mary as a wheelchair number. And let’s just say not all of the cast were great at using their wheelchairs!
Virtually Famous starts on E4 on Tuesday 10pm
