McHale: Working with Bana is dream

Joel McHale says that starring in Beware The Night is a dream come true, because he gets to work with Eric Bana.

The Community star plays a New York City police officer - a colleague of Eric's character - in Scott Derrickson's upcoming supernatural thriller, which is shooting on location in the Bronx and is scheduled for a 2015 release.

"Just to be in it, I was so thrilled, and then knowing I got to work with Eric Bana, who is one of my all-time favourites, was just a dream come true," he said.

"Then you've got Olivia Munn in there and Edgar Ramirez is amazing. This cast is dynamite, except for myself," he added.

The 41-year-old actor continued: "It's kind of a horror film at some points but it's about these cops in the Bronx... and it's a very violent, harsh movie, but with a really good story, and I'm thrilled I got cast in it."

Joel, who also presents E! reality spoof The Soup, said the Kardashian family are "pretty easy" to work with despite the fact he makes fun of them on the show.

"They're incredibly nice. I've never witnessed diva behaviour from them, which means they're pretty easy to work with, which is one of the reasons they continue. So many reality stars are, their egos become so awful and then they just peter out," he said.

He added: "The Kardashians are incredibly savvy and they know if they are being talked about, then that's good. For a while I know that they weren't (happy) and the Kardashians were going, 'Can you stop doing that?'

"But when we make fun of Bruce (Jenner,) no one has stopped me from doing that - until Bruce comes up and punches me in the face."
