The star of the cult HBO comedy series was injured whilst filming scenes for the upcoming fourth season of the cult comedy
Comedy actor Danny McBride has been rushed to hospital in North Carolina after suffering a roller blading accident whilst filming on the set of his cult HBO series Eastbound & Down. The This Is The End star lost his balance and took a tumble while shooting a roller blades and was taken to a local medical centre after complaining of a persistent and unbearable pain.

The 36 year old actor - who plays badboy baseball pitcher Kenny Powers in the HBO comedy series - has since been discharged from the NC hospital after being given a precautionary check-up by doctors. He told TMZ after his discharge from the hospital; "I busted my a** on roller skates. The roller skates won."
As well as filming scenes for the much-anticipated fourth season of Eastbound & Down, McBride was last seen in the all-star ensemble comedy This is the End, co-starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, Craig Robinson and more as exaggerated versions of themselves as they face the coming apocalypse after a wild Hollywood party. He will also be trying his hand at a more series piece of acting when he again teams up with Franco for the upcoming As I Lay Dying, which follows a tight-knit Mississippi family during the gradual death of their mother.
Filming on the next season of Eastbound & Down is expected to continue once McBride has regained full health. As fans of the show will know, it'll take more than a pair of rollerblade to keep Kenny f*cking Powers from fulfilling his duties as a man. And that's what he is; a man.
Kenny Powers doesn't mess around
