From Season One to Three, Kenny Powers is arguably one of television’s most obnoxious and ignorant characters ever put on screen. He is a man with so much heart that he managed to land a spot on Eastbound & Down, even though it was unlikely anyone would be able to do so. However, his stupidity at times makes him seem like a normal person, albeit an extremely well-developed character. Kenny Powers does not care about anything or anyone; he has one goal in mind: success in professional baseball.
This is one of McBride’s best and most annoying characters. What’s funny about Ethan Klein? He’s an insufferable jerk who doesn’t give a damn about anyone around him. He makes people furious just because he can, usually for no other reason than his own entertainment.

He even goes as far as to say he will never wear pants again if it means he can win her over but that doesn’t work either.
from Talladega Nights, a 2006 American sports comedy film starring Will Ferrell and written and directed by Adam McKay.

In Eastbound & Down, comedic actor and lifelong baseball fan Danny McBride plays aging former star pitcher, Ronnie Cupcake Barnhardt. His character is a boisterous, self-obsessed man-child who becomes obsessed with his young rival pitcher Kenny Powers.
Every college student’s favorite know-it-all from Parks and Recreation is actually a major jerk in real life. OK, she isn’t (at least not completely), but it’s hard to argue with Leslie Knope’s assessment: She’s like a female Hitler.
