Does joining a show that you already know is ending feel any different? "It doesn't change," he said. "We have so much fun on the show. [Creators and executive producers] Danny McBride and...

Ke$ha has written a tribute essay to her favorite television character for the latest issue of Rolling Stone magazine, revealing she'll miss Kenny Powers when comedy series Eastbound & Down ends after its current season.

The 26 year-old singer admits she's "obsessed" with Danny McBride's irreverent former baseball star character, and she feels she can relate to the "all-American hillbilly white-trash hero" on a "really deep level" and she's upset she never got the chance to make a cameo on the show, like Marilyn Manson, who agreed to appear without his ghoulish make-up on a recent episode...

"You have to be very humble to start over," says Latin actress Ana de la Reguera when we connect very early on a Monday morning.

That's something she knows firsthand. She's just now arriving home after working through the night. It's not the kind of work schedule you'd expect for an actress who's considered "one of the most influential Latinas in the United States" according to Univision and who's been feted by - or on the cover of - various international publications like Glamour Mexico, Vogue Latinoamerica, and People en Espanol.

While all the accolades in Latin America are appreciate...

Kenny Powers is back, and he hasn't given up on getting back into major league baseball - he may have to make a few stops to get there. HBO has released the trailer for the second season of Eastbound & Down, and Kenny has apparently crossed the border to bring his talents to Mexico.

In the trailer, Powers (Danny McBride) runs onto the field draped in an American flag while the Mexican announcers try to pronounce his name correctly. He's also got a new cornrow haircut, a gun (which he shoots often and somewhat randomly), and participates in a cockfight.
