So I was out on the town last night and ended up at the premiere for the new HBO comedy series Eastbound & Down. I found myself laughing at every other line coming from main character, washed up baseball pitcher/now PE teacher Kenny Powers. Powers is by the hilarious Danny McBride; the name might not seem familiar but you'd know him as Red from Pineapple Express and his role in Tropic Thunder as well. And with Will Ferrell's name attached as Executive Producer, you know the show has the opportunity to be big and make McBride a household name. His character already has a great catchphrase already ("You're fucking out!") so .. it's only time.
Check out some great behind the scenes footage right here. Eastbound & Down premieres this Sunday at 10:30 on HBO
