We’re not quite ready to accept that we’ll seen have seen the last of Kenny Powers, as ‘Eastbound & Down‘ prepares to unleash its final season upon us this September, but at the very least the all-American legend is going out with the help of his friends. In addition to ‘Party Down’ star Ken Marino’s season-long role, ‘Django Unchained‘ and FOX’s ‘Rake‘ star Omar Dorsey has joined the cast for a recurring role in season 4.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dorsey will take the role of Dontel Benjamin, a flashy former NFL player who became a loudmouth talk-show host. HBO describes Benjamin as aggressive and obnoxious, rarely letting anyone get a word in edgewise. In addition to Marino and Dorsey, Tim Heidecker of ‘Tim & Eric’ fame has also joined as Gene, a “vanilla” guy in Kenny’s neighborhood who has nothing in common with Kenny and lacks a basic sense of humor.

Premiering on September 29, the fourth and final outing for Kenny Powers (‘This is the End‘ star Danny McBride) picks up the action several years later and finds Kenny living the American Dream with his family in North Carolina. Kenny’s HBO return will also set up the debut of Stephen Merchant’s new HBO comedy ‘Hello Ladies‘ on the same night.

Well, what say you? Are you excited to see Kenny Powers back in action, even if ‘Eastbound & Down’ season 4 ends up the last trip to the ballpark?
