What made Jody Hill and Danny McBride’s Eastbound and Down such a joy? It often boiled down to finding out just what the f*ck will Kenny Powers do next.
Vice Principals, the next series from Hill and McBride, looks likely to bring even more debauchery, this time casting Walton Goggins alongside McBride. Goggins has been funny in flashes on shows like The Shield, Justified and in Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, but he’s rarely had a chance to play a purely comedic role.
You can see two new exclusive “yearbook photos” for Vice Principals here. Goggins is above. Kimberly Herbert Gregory — whose character is taking the position that McBride and Goggins’ characters are fighting for — is below.
Vice Principals premieres on HBO July 17, at 10:30 p.m. ET.
