‘Eastbound & Down’ Series Finale: Lindsay Lohan Joins as Kenny’s…Wait, What?!
The moment we learned that Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) would say his big f—in’ goodbyes to ‘Eastbound & Down,’ we knew the acclaimed HBO comedy wouldn’t go down quietly. Noise barely begins to cover the end, however, as we’ve learned that iconically down and (f—in’) out star Lindsay Lohan will appear in the ‘Eastbound & Down’ 2013 series finale with a surprising relation to Kenny Powers.
Via TMZ, of all places (where else for Lindsay Lohan news?), we’ve learned that Lohan will appear in the finale as the adult version of Kenny’s illegitimate daughter, presumably appearing in a flash-forward to “a wedding scene set many years in the future.” TMZ proposes that the appearance could potentially lead to a spinoff, but we very much doubt the notion.
Premiering on September 29, the fourth and final outing for Kenny Powers (‘This is the End‘ star Danny McBride) picks up the action several years later and finds Kenny living the American Dream with his family in North Carolina. Kenny’s HBO return will also set up the debut of Stephen Merchant’s new HBO comedy, ‘Hello Ladies,’ on the same night.
In addition to ‘Party Down’ star Ken Marino’s season-long role, ‘Django Unchained‘ and FOX’s ‘Rake‘ star Omar Dorsey has joined the cast for a recurring role in season 4. Tim Heidecker of ‘Tim & Eric’ fame has also joined as Gene, a “vanilla” guy in Kenny’s neighborhood who has nothing in common with Kenny and lacks a basic sense of humor.
Well, what say you? Will Kenny Powers party with Lindsay Lohan to close out ‘Eastbound & Down’ for good, or will Lohan’s appearance prove as tumultuous as her ‘Glee’ stint last year? Watch the latest trailer below, and give us your thoughts in the comments!
