‘Portlandia’ Season 3 to Get Weird With Patton Oswalt, Roseanne, ‘SNL’ Stars
Portland might be known for its weirdness, ’90s-era quirk, and even entire professions devoted to putting birds on things, but with all the celebrities floating through, you’d think it’d be the next Hollywood. Regardless, IFC’s ‘Portlandia‘ has managed to obtain some impressive star power in its third season, including everyone from Fred Armisen’s ‘SNL‘ castmates, to comic everyman actor Patton Oswalt! Who else is on ‘Portlandia’ season 3’s epic list of names, and when might we see them?
The dream of the ’90s may be alive in Portland, but the dream of the celebrity gawker is alive in ‘Portlandia.’ The third season of IFC’s quirky absurdist comedy will hit screens on January 4, with a winter special debuting in advance in December, all with a rather lengthy list of guest stars.
According to Entertainment Weekly, ‘Portlandia’ will see the likes of legendary comedienne Roseanne Barr, Juliette Lewis, Patton Oswalt (also soon to appear in ‘Justified‘ and ‘The Newsroom‘), Rose Byrne, George Wendt, ‘SNL’ stars Bill Hader and Bobby Moynihan, Jim Gaffigan, Matt Berry, Matt Lucas, J. Mascis, Dirty Projectors, and even tennis great Martina Navratilova. The season already boasted regular appearances from Chloe Sevigny, and return spots from Kyle MacLachlan, Jeff Goldblum and Kumail Nanjiani.
Sadly no Alec Baldwin, for now.
What say you? Which of ‘Portlandia’ season 3’s many guest stars are you most excited to see? The new season debuts January 4 on IFC, with the winter special airing on December 14.
