Early Life: Daniel Richard "Danny" McBride was born on December 29, 1976, in Statesboro, Georgia but he was raised mostly in Virginia. His parents went to Georgia Southern in Statesboro and he was born when they were juniors in college. The young family lived in Statesboro until his parents finished school and then moved to California for a little bit. McBride's father worked as a prison guard in Lompoc. Then he got transferred to D.C. to work with the Federal Bureau of Prisons when he was in first grade, so the family moved to Burke, Virginia, for about a year, then out to Fredericksburg, which is where he grew up.
His mother, Kathy Rudy, and his stepfather both worked at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, as civilian support. McBride has English, Jewish, Scottish and Irish heritage. He was raised Baptist. His mother performed sermons at church using puppets. He was raised in Spotsylvania County, Virginia. His parents divorced when Danny was in sixth grade. He graduated from Courtland High School and attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and became one of the "Three Flavas" along with well-known director Jody Hill and Kris Baucom.
Career: After college, Danny moved to Los Angeles to try and launch an acting career. He worked as a cameraman for VH1's Behind the Music and the History Channel until he landed a role in the 2003 film All the Girls. In 2006, Danny and a group of friends wrote, directed, and produced a low budget comedy, starring Danny, called The Foot Fist Way. The low budget movie was written by McBride along with friends and fellow college alum Jody Hill and Ben Best while the trio was still in school back in North Carolina. The movie became an underground hit in Hollywood and eventually found its way to comedy superstars Will Ferrell and Adam McKay.
He wrote and starred in the HBO original comedy series Eastbound & Down (also a collaboration with Hill and Best), as Kenny Powers, a washed-up former major league baseball pitcher with anger management issues. The series was produced by Gary Sanchez Productions, and the pilot episode premiered on February 15, 2009, featuring Will Ferrell and Craig Robinson. On April 8, 2009, HBO announced it had renewed the series for a second season. On July 2, 2012, HBO renewed the series for a fourth season. The series ended on November 17, 2013. In March 2009, because of his role as Powers, he received an offer to play professional baseball for the Pensacola Pelicans, a minor league team in the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball.
In 2010, he signed an endorsement deal with K-Swiss shoes and played the eponymous roadie in the Tenacious D music video for "Roadie" in 2012. McBride starred in the HBO comedy series Vice Principals from 2016 to 2017.
In January 2018, two trailers were released online for what was supposedly a Crocodile Dundee sequel, titled Dundee: The Son of a Legend Returns Home. The film was said to star McBride as Brian Dundee, the son of the original Crocodile Dundee. The trailers also feature cameo appearances by Australian actors Chris Hemsworth, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Margot Robbie, and Ruby Rose. From the beginning, various aspects of the campaign made some publications believe that film was an elaborate hoax. It was later reported that these ads were actually part of a lead up to a Super Bowl commercial for Tourism Australia.
McBride and David Gordon Green co-wrote the script for Halloween, the 2018 sequel to 1978's Halloween (1978). Since 2018 McBride has been the face of bookmaker Coral's television commercials in the United Kingdom, playing a character called "Sports Rodstein," described as "the world's biggest sports fan." In late 2018, HBO ordered The Righteous Gemstones, a new show from McBride and his Rough House Pictures label, straight to series. The show, a comedy, is centered on a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed, and charitable work.
Danny has also starred in a number of big-budget films including Hot Rod, The Heartbreak Kid, Superbad, This is the End, Tropic Thunder, The Pineapple Express, Despicable Me, Alien Covenant, and many more.
He voiced a character in Connected, a fall 2020 release of an animated feature film.
