Marilyn Manson Sends E-Mails to ‘Eastbound & Down’ Star Danny McBride
Marilyn Manson probably wouldn’t argue with the assertion that he’s creepy. He’s made a lucrative career out of being weird. You needn’t look further than his array of terrifying contact lenses and self-inflicted stage wounds for evidence of Manson’s out there nature. The singer is also a massive fan of HBO’s ‘Eastbound & Down,’ and MTV reports that Manson expresses his unconditional love for the series by randomly and obsessively sending e-mails to series star Danny McBride.
“I get weird e-mails from Marilyn Manson now,” said McBride, aka the hilariously self-unaware Kenny Powers. “He sends me weird e-mails in the middle of the night of what he’s watching on TV, and you can hear him giggling in the background. One time he literally sent me a ‘Peanuts’ special I guess he was watching. Sometimes it’s ‘Eastbound,’ infomercials, anything.”
Manson has even expressed his desire to appear on the show, which McBride thinks might ruin the shock rocker’s experience f the series. “You know, I equate it to this: Marilyn likes the show, and maybe it would ruin it for him, if he appeared on it,” McBride reasoned. “When I was a kid, I worked at Kings Dominion, an amusement park. I loved that place so I thought it would be cool to get a job there, and it’s like the quickest way to ruin the all the magic. I hate that amusement park now.”
Are you listening, Marilyn? Does that sound like a thinly-veiled hint? I can only wonder how Manson will fill his hours when the show, which is currently in its second season, goes off the air after its third season, which is how McBride and the show’s creators have always intended the series to end.
