Danny McBride talks the end of Vice Principals, the brilliance of Walton Goggins, and bringing your creative vision to life

Vice Principals, which wrapped up its second and final season tonight, is certainly similar to work Danny McBride has done before. Much like Eastbound & Down, it’s a madcap creative vision that asks us to be both entertained and repulsed by a troubling protagonist. In the case of Vice Principals, there are two of…

In its season two premiere, Vice Principals is more ambitious, vicious, and funny than ever

The first season of HBO’s Vice Principals took awhile to find its footing. In fact, it might be more apt to say that each episode of the eight-episode first season contained something brilliant and evocative, but those moments were often countered by some sloppy storytelling and a muddled sense of morality that made…

Danny McBride stares down a tiger in first teaser for Vice Principals season 2

The first season of HBO’s unhinged comedy Vice Principals ended on a twist, with Danny McBride and Walton Goggins’ achieving their dream of becoming Co-Principals only to have McBride get shot by a mysterious man in a mask.

Danny McBride warns us not to go looking for any comic relief in Alien: Covenant

Danny McBride was easily the strangest addition to the Alien: Covenant cast, but the Eastbound & Down actor wants to make it clear that you shouldn’t go looking for any comedic relief in Ridley Scott’s follow-up to Prometheus—from him or anyone else. In an interview with HitFix, McBride admitted he’s just as surprised…

The vicious struggle on HBO’s Vice Principals is only part of its appeal

If those who can’t do, teach, then it stands to reason that many principals also have stymied ambitions. These school officials must first pay their (union) dues as educators before moving on to administration. But does that ascension fulfill those deferred dreams? That’s one of the central questions of HBO’s Vice…

Vice Principals’ Walton Goggins on why he’s usually cast as a loose cannon

Walton Goggins is one of the most interesting and innovative actors working today. He’s played everything from a slave overseer to a transgender prostitute, though his characters are generally gritty, somewhat sadistic, and always a little off-kilter. In HBO’s Vice Principals, which premieres this Sunday, July 17,…

You’re only getting 2 seasons of Vice Principals, so sit down and shut up

Eastbound And Down creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill’s new HBO project, Vice Principals, will come and go as fast as a baseball hurled by a man with a goddamned rocket for an arm. Speaking at the show’s premiere last night, McBride made it clear that the series—about the destructive war and alliances between two…
