Except that on Sunday, HBO premiered the new Danny McBride comedy Eastbound & Down and it was freakin' hysterical!
If you are a fan of The Foot Fist Way (and you should be) or McBride's work in Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express, then you are gonna love Eastbound & Down. McBride plays a former major league relief pitcher who is a cross between John Rocker and Mitch Williams. He returns home after bombing out of the bigs and gets a job as a substitute gym teacher. This is a bad, bad guy. Racist, misogynistic, drunk, steroid abuser...you name it. But so much fun to watch. A real douchebag. I laughed out loud throughout the entire show.
And it was just the first episode. Gina Gershon and Will Ferrell haven't even shown up yet!
Here is the HBO Making Of promo for it. Enjoy.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. All the douchebags are doing it.
