Joel McHale can act. This is also not likely to be a serious show. I just wish Berlanti weren't involved.

Well, Paul Rudd and Chris Pratt haveshown that primarily comedic actors cantake on superhero roles anddeliver a great performance. Best of luck to McHale with the role. Hopefully hes a Paul Rudd Antman and not a Seth Rogen Green Hornet.
