Up for ‘Down’
That “Bienvenidos a Mexico” sign on the lawn at Paramount Studios didn’t fool anyone. It was really just a place to scarf down tacos and quesadillas after taking in the secondseason premiere of HBO’s “Eastbound & Down,” which finds burned-out ballplayer Kenny Powers ( Danny McBride) moving to cock-fightin’ Mexico.
Party guests posed for pictures with a donkey wearing a sombrero, and “Eastbound” cast members Michael Peña, Steve Little, Ana de la Reguera, Craig Robinson, Deep Roy and Efren Ramirez celebrated the series’ second chance at bat. Comedy mafia members-in-good standing Seth Rogen and Adam Scott of “Parks and Recreation” were also there to cheer them on. Will Ferrell, an executive producer and occasional cast member, came to rally the troops. The premiere brought out big “Eastbound” fans Marilyn
Manson and Don Johnson, whose names you will probably never again see together in the same sentence.
