McBride goes medieval in Your Highness

McBride goes medieval in Your Highness

Danny McBride is like the bacon on a cheeseburger. Without it, the burger is still good, but there’s just something even more delicious when you slap a couple pieces of bacon on top.

The Lonely Island hits the big screen with ‘Hot Rod’

Hot Rod is the feature film debut from The Dudes of The Lonely Island. Andy Samberg stars as Rod Kimble, a lovable weirdo in the Napoleon Dynamite vein, who aspires to be a great stuntman like his deceased father. Rod is supported by his stunt crew of Rico (Danny R. McBride), Dave (SNL‘s Bill Hader), his step-brother Kevin (fellow Lonely Islander Jorma Taccone) and his love interest Denise (Isla Fisher). Rod’s stepfather Frank, played by Deadwood‘s Ian McShane, doesn’t respect him and thinks he’s a wimp. To try to prove his toughness, Rod frequently challenges Frank to fist fights in the basement of the home he shares with his mother (Sissy Spacek). One day, Rod learns that Frank is in need of heart surgery and unable to fight him anymore. … Read entire article »
