The Community actor and The Soup host will portray a conservative Internet news anchor who becomes an unlikely ally of David Duchovny’s Mulder.

McHale just completed work on Community Season 6 and also surprised TV viewers a few years back when he showed up for a dramatic turn on Sons of Anarchy.

The X-Files will air six episodes in 2016, kicking off on January 24. In addition to Gillian Anderson and Duchovny, cast members Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis will return to the series as well.

Matt Richenthal is the Editor in Chief of TV Fanatic. Follow him on Twitter and on Google+.
