HBO’s ‘Vice Principals’ Reveals a Very Murray Cameo in New Trailer
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!
Late Saturday, HBO released a short new promo for the series revealing none other than Bill Murray as the show’s abdicating principal. Word of the cameo emerged from the pilot screening at SXSW, but hasn’t appeared in any of the trailers to date.
Premiering July 17 after the second season premiere of HBO’s Ballers, McBride’s Vice Principals follows a high school and the people who “almost” run it, with McBride starring as Neal Gamby, the divorced vice principal in charge of discipline at the school. Goggins, meanwhile will play Lee Russell, vice principal of curriculum at Lincoln High, as both enter an epic power struggle vying for the top spot: to be school principal.
Boardwalk Empire and True Detective alum Shea Whigham will take the supporting role of Ray Liptrapp, the new husband of Gamby’s ex-wife Gale (Busy Philipps). Vice Principals will also feature McBride executive producing alongside Jody Hill, co-creator David Gordon Green and Stephanie Laing, all Eastbound & Down alum.
You can watch the first trailers below, and stay tuned for the July 17 premiere.
