Up for ‘Down’

Los Angeles Times - - The Guide - — Irene Lacher

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.
