Select columns from result set of stored procedure

I have a stored procedure that returns 80 columns, and 300 rows. I want to write a select that gets 2 of those columns. Something like

SELECT col1, col2 FROM EXEC MyStoredProc 'param1', 'param2'

When I used the above syntax I get the error:

“Invalid Column Name”.

I know the easiest solution would be to change the stored procedure, but I didn’t write it, and I can’t change it.

Is there any way to do what I want?

I could make a temp table to put the results in, but because there are 80 columns so I would need to make an 80 column temp table just to get 2 columns. I wanted to avoid tracking down all the columns that are returned.
