For his next starring role, he’ll play… well, a henchman. Variety says Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to the graphic novel “Hench” for McBride to co-write and star.
The story follows Mike Fulton, an ex-football star laid low by an injury. Without much in the way of job training (or smarts), Mike goes to work as a henchman to a series of supervillains.
No word yet on when filming will begin, and whether it’ll impact season two of McBride’s HBO series “Eastbound and Down.”
