Jason Sudeikis joins third season of “Eastbound & Down”
This year has been pretty big for Jason Sudeikis, aside from his job as a cast member of Saturday Night Live, he has been beefing up on his feature film work. Most recently, he co-starred in HORRIBLE BOSSES, which came out just this past Friday. Although his film career is blossoming at a very fast rate, he doesn't seem prepared to give up on television just yet.
Sudeikis is now going to be involved with the third season of Jody Hill's HBO series, Eastbound & Down.
For those of you who haven't seen the show before, it follows Kenny Powers (Danny McBride), a brash, drug-abusing, ex-baseball player after he has lost the spotlight. The first season followed him as he moved back to his hometown, the second season placed him deep in Mexico. The third season will mark his return to America. Sudeikis will be playing Shane, one of Kenny's new friends for the season.
Sudeikis is a perfect example of what casting on Eastbound & Down should be like. Although we know nothing more about his role, he seems like the perfect person to play against McBride's Kenny Powers. I can't wait to see what they do with his character this season.
You can see Sudeikis in HORRIBLE BOSSES, which is playing in theaters right now. He will next show up in A GOOD OLD FASHIONED ORGY, which opens on September 2.
