Who Is The Real-Life Kenny Powers?
Kenny Motherfuckin’ Powers is too big of a legend to be inspired by just one man. And there are many imitators, like this guy and this guy and this guy. But did you know that there real-life Kenny Powers who died in 2009? He was a badass Hollywood stuntman, responsible for many stunts in the Burt Reynolds classic Smokey and the Bandit. He’s also a mix of legendary MLB racist John Rocker and Phillies pitcher Mitch “The Wild Thing” Williams, who had one of the raddest mullets in baseball history.
I dream of Kenny Powers coming out of retirement a couple years from now for an Eastbound And Down Christmas special. They show was just too damn great to be shelved from our lives forever.
