Photo: Marilyn Manson's Alter Alter Ego Is Eastbound & Down's Kenny Powers
Danny McBride is a magnificent actor and is fortunate enough to have HBO's Eastbound & Down to wreak havoc in all of his mulleted glory. Its second season premieres September 26, and there are plenty of fans who are ready for more of McBride's juice-headed tale of a former pro baseball player who is now stuck teaching gym class.
One such fervent supporter is none other than our goth-rock superstar Marilyn Manson. Co-director David Gordon Green recently spilled the beans to Interview magazine: "Yeah, Marilyn Manson, he's fucking obsessed with the show. He goes so far as to dress up like Kenny."
See the photo evidence below.
Additionally, and somewhat tellingly, Manson has a film project in the works with E&D co-director Adam Bhala Lough called Splatter Sisters -- and it does not involve mullets. Manson plays the leader of a death metal band who is the controlling force behind two drifter teens who are on a killing spree across California. His on-and-off muse, Evan Rachel Wood, lovingly photographed with her man by John Mayer recently, is also involved. Much more about that here.
