Born in Georgia and raised in small-town Virginia, he grew up around “alpha-male rednecks and all these dudes with this crazy confidence that didn’t really have anything to back it up.” A quiet kid who shied away from cowboy boots and wanted to go to film school, he found his loudmouthed, narrow-minded peers intimidating. He started making movies in his back yard, many of which he didn’t realize until later were uncomfortably dark, explaining in a 2011 interview “I’ve always loved comedy that wasn’t appropriate for my age.I was always into shit that was way dirtier than what I should have been watching, and I loved anything that felt naughty.In fifth grade I had all of Eddie Murphy’s memorized.It was the funniest shit I had ever seen.” Even if that’s all you know about Danny Mc Bride, it explains a heck of a lot about some of his most memorable characters, and how we react to them. He went to North Carolina School of the Arts to become a writer/director, not to act.Early in his career, he appeared in episodes of Judging Amy and NYPD Blue.He was arrested in 2009 for his involvement in an oxycodone drug trafficking scheme.
