Vice Principals Is Eastbound & Down All Over Again And That's A Good Thing

  Fans of Eastbound & Down may experience a sense of dj vu while watching Vice Principals . The dark comedies share creators, sensibilities and plots to an almost cannibalistic degree. Vice Principals isn't as good as Eastbound & Down , but it's not as good in the way that the Ramones' second album....  Read More... ...   http://www.tvguide.com/news/vice-principals-review-danny-mcbride-walton-goggins/?rss=breakingnews

‘Eastbound & Down’ Star Andy Daly Turns Racist for New Comedy Central Series (Video)

With “Eastbound & Down” wound down, Andy Daly has a new gig on Comedy Central that requires transforming himself into a overt racist — among other equally horrible and hilarious things. “Review,” which premieres on March 6, is a mock newsmagazine show starring Daly as “life critic” Forrest MacNeil, who takes on challenges from viewers interested in what it’s like to eat 15 pancakes, sleep with a celebrity, or in this case, be a racist. It’s like Morgan Spurlock’s “Inside Man” on black-market steroids.      Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/eastbound-down-andy-daly-racist-comedy-central-review

Eastbound & Down Co-creator Jody Hill on the Show’s Six Feet Under–esque Finale

  The third season of Eastbound and Down was meant to be its last, and in its finale Kenny Powers finally achieved his long-in-the-making comeback, only to realize he was ready to give up baseball for his family (“I’m in a Cameron Crowe movie!”). But then HBO decided they wanted more. A surprise fourth season was ordered, and in its finale , after realizing yet another quest for stardom (this time as a TV host), Kenny once again decided to stick with his family. The encore, with its Six Feet Under –esque climax, was excellent, and series co-creator Jody Hill promises that this time it’s really the end. Vulture spoke to him about the genesis of the idea for the finale, having to bring Eastbound to a close twice, and the possibility of revisiting the Powers family on the big screen. ( Spoilers follow for those who haven’t watched the finale yet, of course.)  Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2013/11/eastbound-and-down-finale-six-feet-under.html

‘Eastbound & Down’ Finale: Kenny Powers Goes Out on Top

(Spoiler warning: Don’t read this if you still plan on watching the stunning finale of “Eastbound & Down”) “Eastbound & Down” ended about as well as a comedy can, taking the “Six Feet Under” approach to ludicrous extremes and wrapping up Kenny Powers deranged odyssey without selling him out. We got to see Sacha Baron Cohen as a disgusting network head, Lindsay Lohan as Kenny’s grown-up daughter, and Powers (Danny McBride) burning on an African funeral pyre. He kind of accepted that family is more important than fame. But not really.  Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/eastbound-finale-kenny-powers-goes-top/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=eastbound-finale-kenny-powers-goes-top

'Eastbound & Down' series finale: Kenny Powers says goodbye, Lindsay Lohan appears

Eastbound & Down Co-creator Jody Hill on the Show’s Most Cringeworthy Moments

When Eastbound & Down co-creator Jody Hill started making the show with Danny McBride, he remembers HBO voicing reservations about the constant F-word-ing. “HBO was like, 'You don't want to say 'fuck' all the time because it loses its impact,'" Hill tells Vulture. "And we had to have a talk with them and say, 'We don't want it to have an impact, we want this to be the language of the show. That's how it works.’ It's just kind of a messed-up show.” True to his word, the show's four seasons (the series finale airs Sunday night) have seen a lot of things far more messed up than any profanity. (Quick sampler from recent episodes: Kenny treating his toddler to a viewing of The Human Centipede , and right-hand man Stevie sucking on his wife's supersize breasts in the middle of a shopping mall.) We asked Hill to walk us through six moments he found to be the most-cringe-inducing, telling us which made for the most awkward shooting days, and which one broke his heart. And as a bonus, he told us about the one scene he wanted to do but couldn't get an actor to go along with.   Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2013/11/most-cringe-worthy-eastbound-and-down-moments-jody-hill.html
