It’s kind of incredible that Danny McBride is capable of essentially playing variations on the same obnoxious, narcissistic and myopic character without audiences ever growing tired of his schtick. Unlike similarly repetitive character actors, McBride continues to both amaze and amuse with his crassly inappropriate and delightfully dumb humor, and Vice Principals is no exception. HBO’s latest miniseries is a more than worthy successor to Eastbound and Down, reuniting McBride with directors Jody Hill and David Gordon Green for another devious comedy — this time set in the world of high school administration.
Danny McBride and Jody Hill work so beautifully together — the pair gave us both The Foot Fist Way and the incredibly hilarious HBO series Eastbound and Down. The duo will soon reunite for another HBO series (Vice Principals), but in the meantime they’re getting to work on another new film, Hill’s first since the amazingly cringe-inducing 2009 film Observe and Report.
April Fools’ Day is an occasion marked by silliness. Many websites choose to celebrate by tricking their readers with goofy pranks. But for every one of these hoaxes that’s funny, there are ten more that are terrible (plus our budget would not allow us to turn the site into ScreenFlush, the #1 place on the Internet dedicated to movie toilets, for a single day). So instead, let’s honor some humor professionals; the men and women who’ve made the best comedies of the last 25 years.
When we last left Danny McBride's Kenny Powers at the end of season three, things seemed pretty well wrapped up. In fact, creators Jody Hill and McBride always talked about how they wanted to have a trilogy structure to the show, and conclude with a third. But it looks like the story isn't over, and we know exactly what Kenny Powers would say.
Jody Hill, best known for creating and directing 'Eastbound and Down' and 'Observe and Report,' has a certain genius for portraying delusional redneck-y types, best personified by frequent star and collaborator Danny McBride. So who better to take on 'Dukes of Hazzard' than Hill? Who?
