Danny McBride

Just a couple years ago, Danny McBride was practically unknown. Then a little film by first time director Jody Hill came out, titled FOOT FIST WAY. The film got the attention of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, who were attached as producers. After that, McBride had no trouble getting other roles, and is now one of the most recognizable faces in comedy movies.

McBride, along with FOOT FIST WAY director Jody Hill, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS director David Gordon Green, and Warner Bros. exec Matt Reilly have founded a new high-concept comedy powerhouse named Rough House. Mandate Pictures acquired a two year deal with Rough House, could this be a match made in heaven?

I like Danny McBride usually, "Eastbound and Down" is one of the best HBO series in a very long time, and FOOT FIST WAY was surprisingly funny. Although, I'm not sure I'll ever get the sour taste of LAND OF THE LOST out of my mouth (shudder). Regardless, I think that this could be really interesting though. McBride, Hill, and Green have a thing that's working, I personally can't wait to see what they put out.
