A few weeks ago brought us 'Eastbound & Down''s most surprising cameo yet when Marilyn Manson strolled through the scene sans makeup, but last night's series finale, "Chapter 29," really brought out the big guns. Not only did Sacha Baron Cohen make his series debut, but so too did Lindsay Lohan and 'True Blood' star Alexander Skarsgård in a surprising flash forward!
If you've seen 'This Is the End' (or can just imagine a movie where Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill and Jay Baruchel are all co-starring together), you can imagine what the outtakes must've been like. Six of the funniest dudes around just coming up with weird s--- to make each other laugh. And that's pretty much what the 'This Is the End' gag reel is - funny dudes making each other laugh.
Like 'Homeland' before it, HBO seems to have gotten wise to the fact that this past Sunday may have proven an altogether difficult spot to launch new programs, even after AMC's airing of the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, "Felina." To wit, the premium cable network has made available Kenny Powers' final(-ish) 'Eastbound & Down' season premiere, along with 'Office' co-creator Stephen Merchant's new dating comedy 'Hello Ladies'!
In addition to the 'Breaking Bad' series finale, 'Homeland' season 3 premiere, and the absurd amount of television dominating our Sunday nights, HBO's 'Eastbound & Down' will trot out its fourth and final season premiere this Sunday with Chapter 22, picking up with Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) in a vastly different state than we're used to. HBO has released the first two clips of the season, but what will it take for Kenny F---in' Powers to get his fire back?
September 29 will see 'Eastbound & Down' star Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) rising from the ashes for one last flame-out, bringing the acclaimed HBO series to a close with its fourth and final season, and you'd better believe Kenny is fired up about it. The first full-length trailer for 'Eastbound & Down' season 4 has hit before the premiere, and you'll need to see for yourself how high La Flama Blanca rises!
We're still coming to grips with the fact that Danny McBride's Kenny Powers will soon retire for good, f---in' taking 'Eastbound & Down' out of our lives forever. Before the fourth and final 'Eastbound & Down' premiere, however, Kenny Powers has risen from the ashes to deliver a fresh new set of posters and an epic new teaser to boot.
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.
We've been tepidly curious of HBO's forthcoming original movie 'Clear History,' which to date has only shown us a brief teaser and photos of stars Jon Hamm ('Mad Men') and an unrecognizable Larry David ('Seinfeld'), but now the full trailer has shown us the light. In addition to an army of celebrity guests, the full 'Clear History' trailer has Larry David back on HBO at his 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' finest.
This is the way the world ends; not with a whimper but with an extended improv session featuring Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and a fleet of other popular young comics. On an ordinary night in Los Angeles, the straight-up-biblical apocalypse begins. After the Rapture, our six heroes board themselves up in Franco's Hollywood mansion and wait for a rescue. It never comes. Supplies dwindle. Tensions mount. 'This Is the End.'
One of the gimmicks behind Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'This is the End' is that the cast is loaded with celebrities playing themselves. But that gets interesting when you have a performer like James Franco, whose life has become an art project. In this new featurette, you can see how the actors approached playing themselves.
