Personal life

McHale was born in Piano, Texas. He later moved to Santa Clarita, California, where he attended Academy of the Canyons, a public high school. Looking back on his time there, he said "I hate being categorized so I intentionally didn't belong to a clique. I was friends with everyone."

He appeared in Zoey 101 for three episodes, The Office, and Ruthless, a short, in 2007. McHale would be in two episodes of the hit HBO show, True Blood, in 2008.
