The third season of Portlandia is in production right now and the first news is coming out of the set and, boy, is it exciting: Academy Award-nominated and Golden Globe-winning actress Chloë Sevigny (Big Love, American Horror Story) is packing her bags and moving to Portlandia!
Sevigny is moving in with Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s aptly named characters Fred and Carrie. Sevigny will appear in multiple episodes throughout the third season as Fred and Carrie’s new roommate, Alexandra. Hope she knows how to separate the recycling properly!
In other casting news, we are thrilled that Kyle MacLachlan (Twin Peaks, Desperate Housewives) will be returning as the Portlandia’s beloved openly reggae mayor. Stay tuned for more new residents visiting Portlandia during season three. As you know, guest stars last season included Andy Samberg (SNL, Lonely Planet), Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption), Johnny Marr (The Smiths), Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, SNL).
Now let’s all watch this clip and imagine Chloe Sevigny waking up next to Fred and Carrie, she should be used to it after all that time on Big Love, right?
The third season of Portlandia comes to IFC in January
