No lie, this is exactly what I needed to take me to the weekend. There’s nothing like a brand new trailer for a Danny McBride show – let alone a Danny McBride show on HBO. I mean, “Eastbound & Down” is a goddamn masterpiece.
And after watching the trailer, “Vice Principals” may end up there as one of McBride’s best.
I mean, it’s a show about vice principals for God’s sake.
That’s the beauty of Danny McBride. He’s the absolute best at taking the most mundane of roles and making them endearing and hysterical characters. Something is telling me that Neal Gamby is going to become that next Kenny Powers.
The Wikipedia synopsis literally says, “Vice Principals tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals.” That role absolutely screams Danny McBride.
But don’t take my mine or Wiki’s word for it, watch the trailer and be prepared to laugh your ass off.
Anyone who has ever gone to high school (I hope that’s all of you), knows the struggle of being a VP. No one knows your name, but everyone hates you anyways. It’s a rough life and there’s nothing you can do about it.
McBride and Walton Goggins (“Justified”), are the dueling vice principals you’ve always known. They’re just funnier.
