I’m a big fan of Eastbound & Down, and, for better or worse, I get paid to talk about television for a living. So when I tell you that this week’s episode of Eastbound & Down contains what might be the strangest ten minutes of television I’ve ever witnessed, please understand that I am not using hyperbole.

Will Ferrell returns as car dealer Ashley Schaeffer who, in Kenny’s absence, is forcing Stevie Janowski to toil at a Kia dealership. This doesn’t sit well with Kenny, who wants to enlist Stevie’s help in raising a kid. I can’t go into great detail about what transpires, but I can say that it involves cannons, transvestites, and a lot of confused Korean businessmen.

So do yourself a favor and skip the Oscars in favor of Eastbound & Down, because unless Billy Crystal smacks someone’s genitals with a spoon, the Oscars won’t compare. Watching Kenny over at Buzzer Beat would probably be even better, since you’d surely watch some of the other quality sports videos housed at that site. (Thanks for entertaining our quick, shameless plug.)

The Eastbound & Down teaser just didn’t tease us well enough. Here we get our first substantial look at the mayhem that Kenny Powers unleashes on Florida. Jason Sudeikis plays his teammate and new best friend in such a douchey way that it’s cringe-worthy. In other words, it’s excellent.

Most important to note, however, is that it looks like Kenny might be in trouble with a Ruff Ryders-esque motorcycle gang. I wish DMX had a role this season.

The new season premieres February 19th on HBO. (Pop Candy)

Kenny Powers > Poor, Underprivileged Children http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/kenny-powers-poor-underprivileged-children/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/kenny-powers-poor-underprivileged-children/#comments Mon, 09 Jan 2012 14:00:42 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=241862 Dr. Cock N Balls is back in the game.

Eastbound & Down returns for its third and final season Sunday, February 19th on HBO. Last time we saw Kenny Powers, he was south of the border, searching for his estranged dad and another shot at the majors. Those efforts put him back on the map, so to speak, and now he’s in Myrtle Beach pitching for the Mermen, which means Kenny Powers goes to Spring Break. Originally, the series was only planned to last one season, but I think we all can agree that Kenny at Spring Break is a story that needed to be told.

This season, Danny McBride is joined by Jason Sudeikis, Steve Little, Katy Mixon and Ike Barinholtz.

As writer and star of”Eastbound and Down,” Danny McBride already has the coolest job. Now he’s looking for another.

He tells The Playlist that he wants to get behind the camera for his next project.

“We’re writing the last season of ‘Eastbound’ and we’ll shoot that this summer and then I’m trying to develop something to get behind the camera. I went to film school and that’s where I met Jody and David and I was focusing on being a writer and director there and I really would love to step into that role so I’m really trying to focus on doing that next.”

It’s still vague what he might want to direct. There’s a whole stable of films in development at his shingle Rough House Pictures. He could easily hop on Olympic Sized Asshole or Bullies. But stay away from Taking Flight. David Gordon Green called dibs and he’s pretty good with that long chain with a knife on the end of it.

America’s Pitcher Kenny Powers isn’t interested in becoming a fixture on your HBO screen. The star and creator of “Eastbound and Down,” Danny McBride and Jody Hill recently announced at “Paleyfest” in Los Angeles that their beloved program would not continue after the upcoming third season:

“We never really had an interest in turning the show into anything traditional,” McBride said. “We approach each season like it’s one long movie.”

Bad news for anyone who hoped to see”Eastbound and Down” eventually feature Kenny Powers performing a dangerous water skiing stunt or hang out with the Beach Boys. I guess this also means we won’t see a Kenny Powers movie. Is life even worth living anymore? (via TV Squad)

What an age we live in.

When I was a young man, seeing a topless scene on TV was all but impossible, aside from the occasional native woman on PBS. But thankfully, things have changed. Now, anyone who isn’t too poor to afford premium cable can easily watch some tig ol’ bitties whenever the mood strikes. What an age we live in.

The following 15 scenes are all from HBO’s lineup. We tried to spread it around to include several different shows, which is why five of your favorite girls from “Entourage” or”True Blood” probably didn’t make the cut. Sorry, but that’s life. Besides, at the end of the day, you’re still looking at naked breasts.

Also, in case you didn’t guess, all the links to video are NSFW.

15. Kristin Proctor – “The Wire”

In season two of “The Wire,” Kristin Proctor has a very brief, yet very memorable role as the girlfriend of Nick Sobotka. To be honest, I don’t remember much of her dialogue. But I do remember this amazing and somewhat pointless topless scene.

14. Rebecca Creskoff -”Hung

HBO’s “Hung” doesn’t get the same amount of buzz that other shows on the network seem to get. But based entirely on this picture or Rebecca Creskoff naked, I’m going to give the show another chance.

13. Katy Mixon (Body Double) – “East Bound and Down”

Katy Mixon plays April Buchanon, the buxom brunette elementary school teacher who steals Kenny Powers’ heart. Speaking of stealing, if I didn’t know any better, I’d swear she was shoplifting melons. Unfortunately, we don’t get to see said melons, as she uses a body double. But whoever they hired did a really, really good job.

12. Claire Van Der Boom -”The Pacific

The Pacific” isn’t exactly your go-to series for topless scenes. However, I felt the need to include it. Why? Because without the few glimpses of nudity the series provided, it might have been the most depressing show in history. Thank God for tits. Also, there were a few other topless scenes that might have been better, but this actress’ last name is “Van Der Boom,” and that goes a long way in my book.

11. Polly Walker – “Rome”

You can’t do a show about ancient Rome without showing some skin. Well, you can, but nobody wants to watch an hour-long show about Cato the Younger’s wacky senatorial adventures. That’s where Polly Walker (Atia) comes in. Her breasts have more screen time than Lepidus, and he was in The Second Triumvirate! Ugh, you don’t care, do you? Fine, just look at the titties.

Longshanks   Ana de la Reguera is one hot latina actress often mistaken for Penelope Cruz. Who wouldn't be distracted by those beautiful eyes and slender built? Yet Ana, who is already a soap opera star in Mexico, has been able to branch out on her own with supporting roles in this past year's Cop Out and the much awaited new season of "Eastbound & Down." Kenny Powers, you're one lucky douchebag SOB. A word from Ana: "Wrestling is ungodly Ignacio" from Nacho Libre More pics of Ana after the jump...

‘Eastbound and Down’ Heads Down Mexico Way http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/eastbound-and-down-heads-down-mexico-way/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/eastbound-and-down-heads-down-mexico-way/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 The wait is almost over. The second season of "Eastbound and Down" will officially send K F*CKING P south of the border to Mexico, where the drugs are more dangerous and nobody works past noon. Michael Pena and Ana de la Reguera join the cast while most of season one's cast sit this one out. Everyone except for Kenny's stalker Stevie Janowski, thankfully. In Season 2, hiding from his problems, Kenny finds himself in Mexico where he joins a local baseball team. Crash co-star Pena will play Kenny’s friend and owner of the baseball team he joins. De la Reguera will play Kenny’s love interest in Mexico. Because of the new setting, most of the cast members from Season 1 of the show will have little or no presence next season with the exception of Steve Little whose character Stevie Janowski will track Danny down in Mexico. Casting is underway for the role of Kenny's father.Filming begins in May, but that's just not soon enough for me. I'll scrape a chalk dash for everyday that passes without a new episode on the side of my television. Like they do in the fancier prisons. (Deadline)
