He’s quick on his feet and handsome to boot, and Joel McHale seems to have charmed his way into a very high profile gig.

The “Community” star was selected as the headliner for the forthcoming White House Correspondents Association Dinner and President Barack Obama may have his hands full.

WHCA President Steven Thomma explained, “We’re thrilled that Joel will headline the dinner when we celebrate our centennial.”

“He’s sharp, funny and just the type of comic who can navigate the unique challenge of our dinner, making fun of Democrats, Republicans and especially the news media. Washington can use a little good-natured ribbing.”
