Biography
Something of a modern-day Renaissance man, the multitalented Danny McBride began as an actor, in outings such as the Mel Brooks spoof Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) and The Hidden 2 (1994) ,and also did frequent work as a stuntman. He branched out into different areas in a major way as the co-screenwriter, associate producer, and second unit director of the sci-fi movie Underworld (2003), an action-packed, über-gothic vampires vs. werewolves saga headlined by Kate Beckinsale that lit up the international box office. He capitalized on the success of this outing by executive producing, scripting, and co-authoring the story of the sequel, Underworld: Evolution (2006), also a monetary winner, and one that essentially reprised the story of the first film. He is not to be confused with Danny R. McBride, the character actor frequently associated with Jody Hill and Judd Apatow, who worked at about the same time and appeared in such films as Pineapple Express (2008), Observe and Report (2009), and 30 Minutes or Less. McBride would also find tremendous success on the series Eastbown & Down.
