First Look: Eastbound and Down with Danny McBride

Kenny Powers was supposed to be baseball's next big thing, but when he got to the big leagues, his obnoxious personality (and his not-so-fast fastball) became his ticket right back out. He thought he'd mount a comeback, of course — but for now, he's plotting his next move from his brother's couch while working as a substitute gym teacher. As HBO puts it, "Every kid has a great ball player they look up to. Kenny Powers is not that guy."

Powers — played by Danny McBride, sporting an amped-up version of his Pineapple Express mullet — is the central figure in Eastbound and Down, a new comedy series premiering Sunday on HBO following Flight of the Conchords.

He's a funny guy. I liked him most in Tropic Thunder, where he also sported an unfortunate mullet-type hairdo. Is he part of the Frat Pack? I forget who's in that besides Will Ferrel.
