If you had any doubt about the necessity, validity, integrity or any other –ity of the new Tomb Raider movie, this bit of casting news should immediately mitigate any and all of your concerns. Walton Friggin’ Goggins has joined the cast of the upcoming reboot, in which he’ll play — oh come on, like we need to even tell you — the film’s villain. And with that piece of casting, Tomb Raider was just elevated from “Yeah, sure, I guess I’ll see this movie at some point” to “Can I pre-order my tickets now or nah?”
By the grace of Givens, we’ll have Walton Goggins back on TV as early as Sunday’s Vice Principals premiere, even if many will forever associate the Justified actor with his more colorful alter-ego, Boyd Crowder. FX put a pretty perfect cap on Boyd’s tale by the series finale, but by Goggins’ own admission, it might be time for a breakout return.
Who wants to wait until Sunday night for a taste of Danny McBride and Walton Goggins’ Vice Principals? Certainly not you, now that HBO has a first full clip of the Eastbound & Down spiritual successor, complete with new photos and more Bill Murray. Who couldn’t use more Bill Murray?
After the end of Eastbound & Down, many were surprised to see Danny McBride jumping back into HBO comedy so swiftly with Vice Principals. Like Eastbound, however, the commitment may not be so rigid, as McBride says Vice Principals is firmly set to end at the close of its two-season order.
The concept of Danny McBride squaring off against Walton Goggins had HBO’s Vice Principals a lock from the start, though one had to wonder what else the series had to offer beyond a cartoon rivalry. See for yourself in the first full trailer and a new featurette, as the two leads find an enemy more loathsome than each other.
As if the prospect of Danny McBride returning to HBO alongside the likes of Hateful Eight alum Walton Goggins weren’t enough to get you onboard for Vice Principals, have we a very Murray surprise for you. See for yourself in the latest trailer!
Sure, HBO may have had a few eyes on an anticipated Sunday premiere, but we all know Danny McBride and Walton Goggins are the real draw. See for yourself, as HBO’s Vice Principals gets an impressively profane new trailer ahead of its July premiere.
Sure, this Sunday will kick off HBO’s spring 2016 with the likes of Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley and Veep, but what of summer? Never you fear, for Dwayne Johnson’s Ballers will arrive in July, along with the long-awaited debut of Danny McBride and Walton Goggins’ new comedy Vice Principals.
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.
The names Danny McBride, Walton Goggins, and the minds behind Eastbound & Down were more than enough to sell us on the new HBO comedy Vice Principals, but the first trailer really puts it over the mark. See for yourself in the new footage, along with a first poster and a July premiere.
