Starring: Danny McBride
Every Kid Has A Great Ballplayer They look Up. Kenny Powers Is Not That Guy.
|Former Major League pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) used to have it all: fame, endorsements, and a lucrative contract. Now, after hard living took its toll on his fastball, Kenny has found himself crashing with his brother's family and teaching gym class at the North Carolina middle school he once attended. Wherever he goes, Kenny wreaks havoc with his boorish behavior and even makes a pre-emptive romantic strike on his former high school squeeze, now teacher engaged to the school principal. Out of baseball, and discarded by the game he abused so well, can Kenny succeed in his plot to triumphantly return to the big leagues?|
"If you thought "Tropic Thunder" was the funniest movie of the year and that everything Will Ferrell touches makes you laugh until you squirt Diet Pepsi out of your nose, then you will love Eastbound & Down. Linda Stasi, New York Post
Editor's NoteAfter throwing pitches in the major leagues, baseball star Kenny Powers (Danny McBride, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS) takes the ultimate demotion: teaching physical education at his former middle school. Nevertheless, Powers's truculent personality is still intact as he clutches to the vestiges of his fading celebrity--and schemes about returning to the stadium lights. This hilarious series from HBO was executive produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
