Will Ferrell Displays His Glorious Mane in New ‘Eastbound & Down’ Pic

January 2012 will mark the return of a great American: An American who doesn’t feel the need to class up his speech, or his wardrobe, or his facial hair. An American named Kenny Powers, who will bring Eastbound & Down back to HBO. Danny McBride will be joined once again in the series by frequent collaborator Will Ferrell, playing Powers’ arch nemesis, car dealer Ashley Schaeffer.

Some fans claimed to be underwhelmed by Ferrell’s past performances on the series. However, even the worst Will Ferrell is still a supremely watchable and entertaining Will Ferrell. And even the worst episode of Eastbound & Down is a pretty damn funny episode of television.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
