Season 4: Eastbound & Down
Character Guide - Season 4 (The Final Season)
The fourth season plot is centered around Kenny and his family, so there are not too many new major characters added for season 4.
- Guy Young
- played by: Ken Marino
- Guy Young is an ex-teammate of Kenny Powers, and witnessed the “vintage KP” party days in Atlanta firsthand.
- Now that he’s retired, Guy is the lead host of Sports Sesh, a roundtable format sports show.
- He thought Dontel was ruining his show, so he invited Kenny Powers on the program to take him out. His plan worked on the second try, and now there’s a new pain in the ass co-host on the Sesh.
- Dontel Benjamin
- played by: Omar Dorsey
- Dontel Benjamin is an ex-basketball player, turned co-host of Sports Sesh.
- Known to be obnoxious and argumentative, Dontel uses rude hand gestures and his “na, na, na, na, na” catchphrase to interrupt show guests and other co-hosts.
- At first he embarrassed Kenny Powers, but then he got shown up, and shoved off the stage by Kenny during his second appearance. Doubt we have seen the last of Dontel...
- Jed Forney
- played by: Jon Reep
- Jed Forney is a 3-time Winston Cup racing champion, and co-host on Sports Sesh.
- He is also the owner of an un-named chicken franchise (chicken chains), that has been described as “nasty ass.”
- Kenny Powers will probably seek some franchise and investment advice from Jed at some point.
- Jimmy Clay
- played by: Michael Beasley
- Jimmy Clay is a retired Hall of Fame linebacker, who has co-hosted on Sports Sesh for 6 years.
- Jimmy is described as a “laid back character until someone pushes his buttons.”
- When Kenny Powers made his first appearance on the Sesh, Jimmy critiqued his Run-DMC black jeans, and tassled cowboy shirt.
- The Neighbors (Gene and Dixie)
- played by: Tim Heidecker Jillian Bell
- Gene and Dixie are the Powers’ straight-laced neighbor friends. In actuality, they are friends with April, and have to put up with Kenny.
- You get the impression they are miserable in their own lives, but they definitely take pleasure in watching Kenny fail, and April having to cope.
- After Kenny socked Gene in the face, both families’ friendships will become very awkward, or end soon.
- April Powers, Toby, and Shayna
- played by: Katy Mixon
- After Toby, Kenny and April had a daughter Shayna, named after Shane Dog.
- While Kenny was busy working at the rental car company, April was the true breadwinner of the family with her award winning real estate skills.
- April was afraid she would lose Kenny Powers the husband if he got famous again. But she supports his TV career — so far.
- The Janowskis
- played by: Steve Little Elizabeth De Razzo
- During the past 5 years, Stevie and Maria have cranked out 4 kids — Kenny, Kendall, Kendra, and (no name).
- The kids hate Stevie and treat him with zero respect, just like Maria does. Stevie can barely make ends meet for the family, or get his d*ck to work.
- At first he declined another adventure with his ex-idol Kenny Powers, but now he’s on board with his new quest for fame and fortune.
