Danny R. McBride on Conan!

Most people who know me probably believe I think NCSA-grad Danny R. McBride is the best thing that has happened to movies since taking the lens cap off of the camera. Okay, so it's true. The man is hilariously southern without being condescending clown. And when I see a Danny R. McBride character acting like a country boob, I laugh because I have actually met people around here like his characters - something you could never say about Larry "The Cable Guy," who's really not even a southerner.

2008 is set to be McBride's year to regulate. After being the best thing on-screen in the comedy duds, Hot Rod and The Heartbreak Kid, he's got some major movies coming opposite stars Ben Stiller (Tropic Thunder), Owen Wilson (Drillbit Taylor), and even Will Ferrell (Land of the Lost). And if that wasn't crazy enough, the dude is starring in his own indie comedy, Foot Fist Way.

A hit midnight screening from Sundance in 2006, Foot Fist Way stars McBride as a hick martial arts instructor from Concord, NC. The movie was also directed by fellow NCSA grad Jody Hill. I've met a lot of southern martial arts instructors in my time with all of them being at least somewhat bizarre. Maybe it's the fact that many of them emulate what is supposed to be a peaceful western existence while getting their rocks off on violent Steven Seagal flicks and AC/DC records.

I've been dying to see Foot Fist Way for a long time, something that has been unbearable since Paramount Vantage - the company who acquired the rights to the film - has been in the practice of setting up release date after release date, only to cancel one or two months back and do the same thing again. Well, it looks like they might be playing it for real this time. McBride recently appeared on Late Night with Conan O' Brien yesterday, in the guise of Fred Simmons, the character he plays in the film.

Watch as Simmons tells Will Ferrell off while performing amazing 'demo' stunts with his team of martial artists:



And if you're still interested, you can check his movie's website out here.
