Danny McBride Interview
I was just ready for a change. I love Los Angeles but I’ve been there for 20 years. L.A. is a city where I’m a workaholic. You run into people from work, there’s billboards about every other thing going on in town – it’s hard not to keep wanting to work. I was looking at photos of my kids, seeing how quickly time is moving, and was like, “I’ve got to figure out a way to slow this down a little bit.” When we were in L.A., my son [told me], “I want to learn how to ride a bike.” I was like, “For what? You’re not going to be able cruise down fucking Mulholland on this thing!” [Laughs] Here, we’re not living behind walls. He can walk down the road. And none of my friends in L.A. had kids. I’m 40 years old and all my friends were still going to clubs – I felt like I was a teen mom. Here, everybody has kids.
It also gets you out of the L.A. bubble.
It really does. Being around people that have nothing to do with film gives me ideas. I can walk down the street and get an idea for something that I know is unique to here. Whereas you walk around L.A., you’re seeing the same thing everyone else is seeing. I’ve actually written more since I’ve been here than I have over the last year in Los Angeles. Who knows? Maybe two years from now, I’ll be trying to crawl my way back, but right now, it’s been such a needed change.
Yeah, I was born in Statesboro, Georgia. My parents went to Georgia Southern there. It took me until later in life to realize they probably didn’t mean to have me when they were juniors in college. [Laughs] I was probably conceived at some frat party. We were there until they finished school, and then moved to California for a little bit. My dad worked as a prison guard in Lompoc. Then he got transferred to D.C. to work with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, when I was in first grade, so the family moved to Burke, Virginia, for about a year, then out to Fredericksburg, which is where I grew up. It was a farm town with a little shopping mall. That was it.
What did your mom do growing up?
At first, we were a pretty religious family. We went to church every Sunday, Bible study on Wednesdays, so I spent a lot of time sitting around waiting for my parents to finish teaching Bible school. When we moved to Virginia, she got into puppet ministry. She bought these puppets, her and my dad built this stage, then she’d do these children’s ministry things at church. She did that for a while, then got a job working at a department store.
Did the religion stay with you through the years?
No. My parents got divorced when I was in sixth grade. My family had dedicated all this time going to this church, and now, it was just my mom, me and my sister. We expected the church would help us out. Instead, it was people wanting dirt on my mom and talking about the divorce. She stopped going and was like, “I’ll still take you and your sister.” For a few months, she would drop us off. Then finally, it was like, “What are we doing? Fuck church!” [Laughs]
What were you into as a kid?
I was really just into movies. I campaigned my family to get a VCR. When I got a little older and a kid in our neighborhood got a video camera, we started making movies.
What were they like?
Terrible! They were all rotten. But I have them all still. Everything was always horror movie-influenced. We’d take the most simple concept and then it would always end up with all of us killing each other, screaming, chasing each other around with guns and knives.
know what people respond to with him.”
Were you funny growing up?
I was exactly how I am now. You look at those movies and they suck – but it’s the same exact sense of humor. I’d make these radio tapes when I was in second grade, third grade, where I’d do fake interviews with like Pee Wee Herman or Mr. T. I’d do all the voices. I found one of those tapes and I’m doing some commercial for a fake nacho stand, called Dan’s Nachos and Lemonade. It’s just me as a second grader with this little kid voice, talking about, “If you don’t like nachos, come to the back: We’ve got cocaine, beer and cigarettes!” [Laughs]
How’d you end up in film school in Winston-Salem?
It’s really funny: I equate my whole career to one afternoon when I was a senior in high school. In the middle of English class I had to piss. I walked down the hall to go to the bathroom and passed this kid who’d moved to the school a year earlier. I was like, “Where are you going?” “I’m going to drop this application off for North Carolina School of the Arts.” “What’s that?” I’d been looking at film schools, but back then it really was just USC or NYU, and there was no way my parents could afford to send me to those places. So I was trying to figure something else out. This kid said, “There’s a film school there that just opened a year ago.” I went home, researched North Carolina School of the Arts and I could afford it, so I applied. I got in. He didn’t. [Laughs] I stole his spot!
You’re living the life he could’ve had.
I robbed him! But at that place my first year, Jody Hill lived on one side of me, David Green lived on the other. I’ve worked with those guys ever since. It’s just crazy: Of all these big choices you make in life, something like my bladder telling me I have to piss alters the direction of my life.
When you first met David and Jody, did you guys click right away?
I met Jody the first night there. Both of us didn’t know anybody – but we were both wondering where we would get weed. [Laughs] So the first night, I went on some journey with him to try to find weed at our new school, then we smoked it together. It was a lifelong friendship after that. David was a year ahead of us; I met him right at the beginning. But then I was watching a bunch of people’s films from last year and David just had this crazy movie called Would You Lather Up My Rough House? It made me laugh so hard. You could see he had a vision and a voice. I just instantly thought he was awesome.
