When Jessica Alba gets cast in Spy Kids 4 after working with Robert Rodriguez a few times, it’s easy to shrug shoulders, place the movie in the pile of misfit toys, and go about your day. On the other hand, when one of the funniest comedians blazing a trail through his career joins the cast, it at least warrants another look.

According to Variety, it’ll be a small role Joel McHale is stepping into, but it’ll be a small role which finds him married to Jessica Alba. Her character heads back into the spy world (just when you thought she was out!), and McHale’s husband character is also a spy-busting journalist type which makes this Spy Kids 4: The Valerie Plame Story.

His casting should give some spark to the film. Unfortunately, it also gives away the twist that Spaghetti Cat is the main villain.
