Danny McBride Stars in The Foot Fist Way “Hand Job” Scene
The Foot Fist Way is often referred to as the film that made Danny McBride’s acting career. This is an accurate statement. McBride, along with his college classmate Jody Hill (who directed the indy comedy) and their friend Ben Best (who plays a role in the film and has since become a producer on subsequent films they have teamed on) got together for a film they didn’t expect anyone would see. That was until Will Ferrell and Adam McKay saw it and trumpeted it’s virtues throghout Hollywood. This led to the beginning of several careers, most notably and visibly McBride’s, who stars in the HBO series “Eastbound and Down.” A star of sorts was thus born.
McBride starred in the 2006 comedy about a Tae Kwon Do instructor who’s a little full of himself. This scene captures that statement truthfully and quintessentially. In this classic scene, McBride’s Fred Simmons is sitting in his Ferrari with one of his weak students. He is waxing philosophically (for him) about why his life is in full on struggle mode, with his wife temporarily leaving him over her performance of a lewd act. Simmons explains the act and subsequently a few other things in this brief, but hilarious clip. Enjoy!
