Marilyn Manson is taking his love of the HBO show Eastbound and Down, which stars Danny McBride as washed-up ball player Kenny Powers, to another level. McBride says he routinely gets "weird e-mails" from the goth-rocker.

"I get weird e-mails from Marilyn Manson now," Danny tells MTV. "He sends me weird e-mails in the middle of the night of what he's watching on TV, and you can hear him giggling in the background. One time he literally sent me a 'Peanuts' special I guess he was watching, sometimes it's 'Eastbound,' infomercials, anything."

And even though he's relentlessly stalking his hero and trying to make a case for a role on the show as Kenny Powers' sidekick, don't expect to be seeing Manson on the show anytime soon.

"You know, I equate it to this: Marilyn likes the show, and maybe it would ruin it for him, if he appeared on it," McBride said. "When I was a kid, I worked at Kings Dominion, an amusement park. I loved that place so I thought it would be cool to get a job there, and it's like the quickest way to ruin the all the magic. I hate that amusement park now."

Sorry to dash your hopes, Marilyn, but you'll just have to keep enjoying the show the same way the rest of us do!
