Where you may have seen him: HBO's "True Blood," Nickelodeon's "Zoey 101" and the boy band NLT (Not Like Them) Character: Arty Kevin on Arty: Hes a nerd but he thinks hes cool. He didnt get the memo that hes not very cool. And he cant walk. Hes in a wheelchair. But he forgets hes in a wheelchair because he still does all the dances and everything. They work around the wheelchair. I might bump into people, but it becomes very integrated. Its just like having legs, I forget about it. On his biggest challenge: The wheelchair, because I dance. Its hard for me not to move my legs. Ive always danced. [McHale belonged to the boy band NLT (Not Like Them).] So its weird for me not to be dancing. We were doing the pilot and we were doing the big finale scene, 'Dont Stop Believin' and they were like, 'Kevin, can you please stop moving your legs to the beat?' Everybodys singing and dancing and Im trying not to move and its the hardest thing. I have to tense my legs up.
