The family comedy A Merry Friggin Christmas follows Boyd (Joel McHale) who, along with his family, is forced to spend a dreaded Christmas at his parents’ house with his eccentric father (Robin Williams) that he has been avoiding for years. But when he realizes that he left his son’s gifts at home, Boyd and his father must hit the road in a blizzard to retrieve the gifts before sunrise and save Christmas. The film also stars Lauren Graham, Candice Bergen, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Tim Heidecker, Clark Duke and Oliver Platt.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Joel McHale talked about being a part of telling this father-son story, why the holidays seem to bring out the worst in families, and his fondest memories of working with Robin Williams. He also talked about how it feels to be doing Season 6 of Community for Yahoo, returning to work on November 17th with a bigger budget, and that they didn’t get picked up until the last day of their contract, along with why he decided to renew his contract hosting The Soup through 2016.
