In an interview with Vulture, Danny McBride praised Lindsay Lohan's performance on the finale of season four of Eastbound & Down, which is also expected to be the series finale. Here are highlights:
On Lindsay Lohan's performance: "She was actually great. What was most interesting was the news stories that followed. She was kind enough to come in and do a very small thing for us, and there was coverage on it for a week — even made-up stories about the crew's reaction to what she had done. She was great and did a good job, but it was just very interesting to see how that news cycle works around her. I can't imagine how you would get used to that."
On if he wanted to cast her in his new HBO pilot: "Yeah, that was completely false. Not that I wouldn't do that. She was totally cool, and we enjoyed working with her, and if something was right we'd definitely do it again. But I saw that and was like, That's fucking insane — that's a completely made-up story. But at least I'm in made-up stories that have to do with work and not ones about cheating on my wife or anything."
On if there will be a fifth season of Eastbound & Down: "I think this is it. I'm cautious to say that, because we really thought we were done after last year. But once we put our pens down and stopped working, this flurry of ideas came. We love this show. We love writing for this character. We love the fan base. But we wouldn't want to overstay our welcome."
