Exciting news!! According to an exclusive report from Entertainment Weekly, Chloë Sevigny will be joining the cast of the Peabody Award-winning IFC comedy Portlandia for the show’s upcoming third season.
Fred and Carrie are getting a new roommate.
Academy Award nominee Chloe Sevigny is joining the cast of Portlandia for the hipster comedy’s third season. The Big Love alum will play Alexandra, a Portlandite who moves in with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s characters (who, naturally, are named Fred and Carrie).
Sevigny follows in the footsteps of actors like Jeff Goldblum, Kristen Wiig, and Tim Robbins, all of whom appeared in Portlandia‘s second season. Kyle MacLachlan will reprise his role as the mayor of Portland in Season 3 as well.
For whatever reason, EW has removed the original article from their website for the time being, but we presume this is still a credible report.
Update Aug 22: The article is now back online on the EW website, confirming Chloë’s casting on the show.
Portlandia stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Season 3 is currently filming in Portland, Oregon and is expected to premiere January 2013 on IFC.
