'Eastbound & Down' Heads to Mexico For Season 2, Taps New Regulars
By NELLIE ANDREEVA Thursday April 22, 2010 @ 3:52pm PDT
EXCLUSIVE: Season 2 of HBO’s Eastbound & Down is coming together. The setting for the underrated comedy starring Danny McBride will move from North Carolina to Mexico, with Michael Pena and Ana de la Reguera joining as new regulars. In the first season finale, former professional baseball pitcher Kenny Powers (McBride) quit his physical ed teaching job for an offer to join the Tampa Bay Rays but, after the offer fell through, he dumped his girlfriend and was last seen driving away with a worried look on his face. 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. Production on Season 2 will start next month in Puerto Rico, which will stand in for Mexico. Mexican-born De la Reguera co-starred on another project set in Mexico, the 2006 feature Nacho Libre, as well as the recent release Cop Out.
I still don't know if I've ever seen someone cast as a "professional baseball player" that throws as poorly as Danny McBride...the guy is supposed to be an ex fire baller, and he throws like he's literally never thrown a ball in his life. I saw like 20 minutes of Land of the Lost yesterday, and he happened to throw a rock in one scene...and he could barely do that either...that's what reminded me
"if this was America, you'd have a radar gun"
"Ashley Schaffer BMW, Ashley Schaffer BMW, Ashley Schaffer BMW, WOO!"
I can't get enough of that line.
Don't know when I'm gonna get to see this. I'm gonna miss Ms. Mixon's luscious breasts this season though.
I'm recording it right now. I'll watch it tomorrow.
Sure, why not? Make sure you have your passport.
how incredibly unfunny
"Look at the goddamn sax player from 'Lost Boys' trying to rub the language barrier in my face."
Then I will hold you down and spit her percolations all over you until you're as greasy as the day she regrets pushing your big fat ass out her big fat cunt.
yes, a David Gordon Green episode!
and i'm w/ Kenny--tits over ass. gawd, i miss Katy Mixon.
I want this show to be on everyday forever.
I am neither foxy, nor a lady.
