Yeeeeeah, Danny McBride likey. The comedic actor who hails from North Carolina is attached to star in L.A.P.I., which will be directed by his good bud Jody Hill. Based on a pitch from writers Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan, the studio won’t give it up and tell us what it’s about except McBride will play a beaten-down, hardboiled private investigator, or as Hollywood-types call it, a P.I.
McBride and Hill most recently teamed on the HBO comedy Eastbound and Down, of which season 2 should be premiering rather soon. They probably also most recently teamed on a basket of blazin’ buffalo chicken fingers. Why? Because that’s what guys do on Thursdays. (Variety)
