Joel McHale's two-episode arc on "Sons Of Anarchy" as a fast-talking con-man named Warren begins Tuesday, Oct. 16, and in an interview with TV Guide, McHale previewed the role, hinting that his character might not survive trying to rip Gemma off.
When asked if his character's odds of survival were high, McHale replied, "Oh no, they are not."
The "Community" star and "The Soup" host spilled a few more details in an earlier video interview with EW. "I got to shoot a gun and then run and shoot, and then jump over an embankment, and I nailed it," McHale said, before mentioning that he was about to shoot a nude scene.
He may have been joking, but then again, "Sons Of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter proved with Walton Goggins' recent cameo that he likes to put his guest stars in compromising situations.
"Sons Of Anarchy" airs Tuesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on FX.

Lisa Whelchel, "Survivor: Philippines"
We don't think preppy, wealthy Blair Warner could have roughed it on "Survivor," but <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/20/survivor-cast-announcement-season-25-philippines-_n_1811264.html" target="_hplink">Lisa Whelchel, the actress who played the "Facts of Life" character for nine years, is joining the cast for Season 25 in the Philippines</a>. Really, we just hope that Whelchel -- who is now a Christian author, singer and speaker -- also somehow involves Mrs. Garrett (Charlotte Rae), Jo Polniaczek (Nancy McKeon), Natalie Green (Mindy Cohn) and Tootie Ramsey (Kim Fields) in the show.
Parker Posey, "New Girl"
We were initially excited that Leslie Mann would guest star on the Season 2 premiere of "New Girl" as "shot girl." But when she had to back out due to scheduling conflicts, we were equally happy to see <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/06/parker-posey-joins-new-girl-cast_n_1747608.html" target="_hplink">Parker Posey take her place</a>. The actress will play the woman Schmidt (Max Greenfield) hires to work at his party in celebration of the removal of his penis cast. There's no way it won't be hilarious.
Phoebe Tonkin, "The Vampire Diaries"
It was only a matter of time before Kevin Williamson took one of the stars of his now-defunct "Secret Circle" and put them on his other hit, "The Vampire Diaries." And we're very happy it's Phoebe Tonkin. The Aussie actress had the American mean girl act down as evil witch Faye Chamberlain and now, Tonkin is heading to Mystic Falls as Hayley, a wild, free-spirited friend who Tyler (Michael Trevino) has history with. As long as Tonkin works those incredibly expressive eyebrows, the performance is bound to be great.
Tina Majorino, "Grey's Anatomy"
From "Andre" to "Corrina, Corrina" and "Veronica Mars" to "Napoleon Dynamite," Tina Majorino has spent the majority of her life on screen and this year, she's stopping by Seattle Grace. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/17/tina-majorino-greys-anatomy_n_1795746.html" target="_hplink">Majorino will guest star on "Grey's Anatomy,"</a> though there are no details yet about her character.
Kate Hudson, "Glee"
After a string of not-so-great rom-coms, <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/14/sarah-jessica-parker-glee-kate-hudson_n_1514505.html" target="_hplink">"Glee" is giving Kate Hudson the opportunity to revisit the musical talents</a> that impressed audiences in "Nine."

Maura Tierney, "The Good Wife"
Welcome back to TV, Maura Tierney! After "The Whole Truth" fizzled, we anxiously awaited the day Tierney would find her way back to us. Now, that time has come, and it's on one of TV's best dramas to boot? Wonderful. We can't wait for the mini "ER" reunion when Tierney shows up on "The Good Wife" opposite Julianna Margulies.
Lucy Lawless, "Parks & Recreation"
Ever since <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/07/lucy-lawless-parks-and-rec_n_1261022.html" target="_hplink">Lucy Lawless told us she had to pass up the role of Tammy 1 on "Parks & Recreation"</a> we've been dreaming of the day she'd get her warrior princess behind to Pawnee. Well, it's finally happening and to sweeten the role, Lawless will be sharing many scenes with Nick Offerman. Yep, Xena and Ron Effing Swanson.
Jennifer Hudson, "Smash"
How do you invigorate a show about chasing your dreams? Add an actress who launched her career on a reality show only to become an Oscar winner. We can't wait for the duets between "Idol" alums Katharine McPhee and Jennifer Hudson on "Smash."
Kathryn Erbe, "Law & Order: SVU"
"Law & Order: SVU" showrunner Warren Leight has been treating fans very well. The former "Criminal Intent" boss has embraced the rich history of the "Law & Order" universe and continues to utilize former players in key roles. This fall he's bringing in Kathryn Erbe from the "Criminal Intent" universe and we couldn't be happier.
Ciarán Hinds, "Game of Thrones"
The reaction was all over the map when this "Political Animals" veteran was cast as the much-feared King Beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder. Some fans thought he was a great choice, others thought the 59-year-old actor might be too old for Mance. The main thing to recall about Hinds is that he has tremendous presence -- his Julius Caesar on "Rome" was one for the ages. So bring on another "GoT" king; we think Hinds will be grand.
John Barrowman, "Arrow"
Not much is known about the character that Barrowman, best known as Capt. Jack Harkness on "Doctor Who" and "Torchwood," will play on the CW's superhero show. We do know that he'll be recurring, however, and his Starling City character is a well-to-do acquaintance of the Queen family. But come on, he's got to be some kind of secret superhero -- or supervillain -- right? We can only hope!
Miriam Shor, "The Good Wife"
From "Swingtown" to "GCB," Shor has often been a standout, which is why we've been waiting for her to get a really prominent role on a hit show. That's why, when Kristin Chenoweth had to bow out of her "Good Wife" guest arc due to an on-set injury, we're elated that the producers cast the dependably good Shor, who'll play a reporter covering the Florrick campaign.
David Morrissey, "The Walking Dead"
Morrissey has been a mainstay of top-notch British dramas for years now, so it's exciting to see him in a high-profile role on an American show. And it's even more intriguing to think about this respected character actor taking on a role as tough and fierce as the Governor, one of the most legendary figures in the "Walking Dead" universe. Given how talented he is, we're optimistic that he'll bring a lot of heft and skill to Season 3 of the AMC drama.
Rob Corddry, "Happy Endings"
When we heard that <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/23/happy-endings-season-3-year-of-penny_n_1695437.html" target="_hplink">control freak Jane (Eliza Coupe) would be getting a job</a> on the ah-<em>mah</em>-zing ABC comedy next season, the mind boggled at what career path she might choose. Admittedly, selling cars wasn't our first guess, but the choice to cast comic genius <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/11/last-man-standing-recast-greys-anatomy_n_1767870.html" target="_hplink">Rob Corddry as Jane's boss</a> (the "Car Czar") means we're certain that the storyline will leave us all very happy.
Malcolm McDowell, "Community"
Time will tell whether "Community" without Dan Harmon will be the "Community" we fell in love with, but at least the NBC comedy is still making spectacular casting choices. Following in the footsteps of Betty White and Michael K. Williams, the "Clockwork Orange" icon will appear as the Greendale Seven's new history professor in at least two episodes next season.
H. Jon Benjamin, "Suburgatory"
Perhaps best known for his distinctive voice, which he uses to great effect as the titular characters on "Archer" and "Bob's Burgers," Benjamin will be escaping the recording booth to play Tabitha, Dallas' (Cheryl Hines) unlicensed and unorthodox new life coach. Expect him to interfere in Dallas' new relationship with George (Jeremy Sisto) quite spectacularly.
Sean Hayes, "Smash"
With Eric McCormack otherwise engaged on TNT's "Perception," we're happy to accept a "Jack and Grace" reunion in the meantime. Debra Messing's "Will and Grace" co-star will drop by NBC's musical drama for multiple episodes as <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/13/sean-hayes-smash-season-2_n_1773507.html" target="_hplink">Terrence Falls</a>, a TV star making his Broadway debut -- and becoming a major thorn in Ivy's (Megan Hilty) side in the process. <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/23/debra-messing-smash-season-2_n_1823125.html" target="_hplink">Messing recently admitted that she specifically asked the writers for scenes</a> with Hayes during his arc.
Malin Akerman, "Suburgatory"
Malin Akerman's headed to the 'burbs, and we couldn't be happier. Not only will her character's free-spirited nature shake up the tightly-wound Chatswin, but Tessa's (Jane Levy) finally getting a mom!
John Slattery, "Arrested Development."
Roger Sterling on "Arrested Development?" Yes please! "Mad Men" actor John Slattery will join Michael, Tobias, Job and the rest of the Bluth gang for the fourth season of the quirky comedy. Details of Slattery's character are being kept under wraps, but he's set for a multi-episode arc.
Josh Gad, "New Girl"
After a bad breakup with Russell (Dermot Mulrony), Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is long overdue to be wooed. Luckily, "1600 Penn" actor Josh Gad is coming to the rescue in the season premiere of "New Girl" as a beer delivery guy who falls for Jess' adorkable ways.
Bobby Cannavale, "Boardwalk Empire"
"Nurse Jackie" and "Third Watch" veteran Bobby Cannavale joins "Boardwalk Empire" as Gyp Rosetti, a brutal New York gangster who wants to buy some of Nucky Thompson's booze. The only problem? Nucky has decided to sell exclusively to Arnold Rothstein. A new trailer shows that the dispute may push Rosetti and Thompson to war. Time will tell if the conflict will be compelling enough to fill the dramatic void that Jimmy Darmody's character left behind.
Yvonne Strahovski, "Dexter"
Former "Chuck" star Yvonne Strahovski brings her talents to "Dexter" as Hannah McKay, a woman with a dark, mysterious past who gets called in by Miami Metro to consult on a case. There's plenty of speculation that her character may be Dexter's love interest this season.
Jimmy Smits, "Sons Of Anarchy"
Jimmy Smits comes to "Sons Of Anarchy" as Nero Padilla, a Latino gangster who Gemma starts hooking up this season. His character is sure to butt heads with a weakened Clay, who's recovering from being shot by Jax after he beat Gemma within an inch of her life. While Smits' memorable run as Miguel Prado on "Dexter" Season 3 shows the potential he can bring to "Sons," he isn't the only guest star coming to the FX biker drama this season: Joel McHale, Harold Perrineau and Ashley Tisdale will also join the cast.
