I'm a cannibal, hombre! We're gonna f--kin' eat your a$$!
~ Danny McBride

Danny McBride (as himself) is one of the main characters and the secondary antagonist in This Is The End.  He portrays himself as a selfish, homicidal idiot who uses up the food and water that the rest of the cast is carefully trying to ration. He is actually a cool guy at first due to his friendship with the protagonists, Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen but later ended when his rival James Franco kicked him out of the house.


Apocalypse Began and The Living Misfortune of the Group

Danny comes to James Franco's house without being invited. He falls unconscious from drinking lots of alcohol in Franco's bathtub therefore he failed to notice that an apocalypse was happening on Earth and Jay, Seth, Jonah and Craig became forced to stay with Franco at his house to stay alive, with each agreeing to preserve their limited food supply as much as possible. Danny then takes out Franco's food to make breakfast for himself without permission and when all the 5 celebrities were sleeping. Danny used up almost all the food they had left such as eggs, cereal and bacon to make a huge all-you-can-eat for himself. James quickly objects to Danny using up most of their food without asking them. Next, Danny started using up much of their limited water supply complaining that he deserves it since he's more thirsty and weighs more. Franco objects to being patient with Danny any longer, complaining that patience was a mistake since Danny has an overeating habit and that he saw him visibly gain weight while they were all hiding in Franco's house. After the group finally has enough, they kick him out of James Franco's house. McBride storms out of the house without hesitation.

Be a Cannibal Leader

Danny McBride became cannibal pack leader!

Later, the surviving characters run into Danny again, who has become the leader of a gang of cannibals with Channing Tatum as his sex slave/pet. Seth Rogen and Jay Baruchel escape, but James Franco is eaten by the gang because in spite of his heroic sacrifice that caused him to be Raptured, the Rapture fails miserably due to him flipping off Danny. As James begs to be sent up again, he asks what did he do wrong, and Danny lectures, "You were being petty!" before ripping into his face and tearing off his nose to start eating him. However Danny is unable to eat Seth and Jay as they escape. Danny is never seen again, leaving his fate unclear.


The viewer however can tell that because the world was incinerated by fire, earthquakes and sinkholes, Danny and his gang may have starved to death not being able to find food or water, and it is unlikely they will find any other humans to eat besides Franco. Another likely fate for Danny is he was killed by Satan or one of his demons since he wasn't very far from them.



  • Danny eating James Franco because he became a cannibal is ironically how James said he wanted to in the movie Pineapple Express 2.
  • Ironically the real Danny McBride is said to be nothing but a sweet heart, shows that Danny's real life self was somewhat being the opposite of his villainous self in the film.
  • According to Evan Goldberg, the ending of the movie had featured Danny and James Franco smoking together with Adolf Hitler (which confirmed that both of them indeed entered Hell), but was cut because Seth and Evan deemed that it would have been too much.
  • According to Seth Rogen, doring the filming, Danny McBride was the person who made everyone laugh and break character the most. At one point, it took 18 takes and over an hour for the cast to get a joke on film because Mcbride's delivery kept making everyone laugh.
