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)

‘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)

David Gordon Green to Make Biopic About ‘The Barefoot Bandit’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-gordon-green-to-make-biopic-about-the-barefoot-bandit/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/david-gordon-green-to-make-biopic-about-the-barefoot-bandit/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 You may or may not know the story of Colton Harris-Moore, the teenaged burglar who has remained at large for the last two years, having stolen (and crashed) several vehicles, boats, and aircrafts in that time. He was once witnessed fleeing a burgled home in western Washington State with no shoes, leading to the nickname "the Barefoot Bandit." He's also known as "the Teen Houdini," "the Boy Who Could Fly," and "the Shoeless Asshole." (That last one was coined by me.)Taking Flight: The Hunt for a Young Outlaw is a book proposal about Harris-Moore's insane legend to which David Gordon Green and his Rough House Pictures brosefs Danny McBride and Jody Hill now own the film rights. And understandably so. Pooping outdoors. Eating garbage. Stealing pies from window sills. Constantly on the run from Ranger Smith. This kid is living the life!! (Variety)

Danny McBride to Star in ‘L.A.P.I.’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/danny-mcbride-to-star-in-l-a-p-i/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/danny-mcbride-to-star-in-l-a-p-i/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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)
