Robots, water slides, girls dancing as Santa Claus, machine guns, roller skating, the fourth season of Eastbound and Down has it all.

HBO is well-known for original dramas, but HBO comedies are pretty good too. Two of the more popular ones are returning soon, and new videos have been posted to tease the new seasons.

That teaser is a bit less formal, but very clever and cool – which is the niche that show has certainly carved for itself.
Fans of either show should check out the videos below. Read More »

In Eastbound and Down, Kenny Powers has stood atop the worlds of baseball and pure assholery. (If that wasn’t a word, it is now.)

Kenny Powers is now the CEO of K-Swiss, and he’s going to destroy the world of product marketing and branding, the better to rebuild it in his own image. His approach to business is explained in a video after the break. It is laden with guest appearances, including Michael Bay. And, as anyone familiar with Eastbound and Down would likely assume, this is some NSFW shit. Read More »

Saturday Night Live veteran Jason Sudeikis has been doing pretty well for himself as a movie star lately, with three separate big-screen projects in 2011 alone — Hall Pass, Horrible Bosses, and the upcoming A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy — but he hasn’t left the small screen behind quite yet. The actor has just signed on for a recurring role on the upcoming season of HBO’s baseball comedy Eastbound & Down as Shane, a new friend of former Major League pitcher Kenny Powers (Danny McBride).
The next season of Eastbound & Down will be the third and most likely final season of the series, and will premiere in early 2012. [Variety]
After the jump, Kristen Bell gains two new suitors, and Nip/Tuck star Julian McMahon takes on the finance industry.
