Chloe Sevigny Joins Cast of Portlandia, Reads in Support of Pussy Riot

 

 

Via EW:  

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 MacLauchlan will reprise his role as the mayor of Portland in Season 3 as well.

DDR’s favorite Show Portlandia has gone big time.  I mean Oscar big time.  Chloe Sevigny has been in a bunch of great films (Kids, and Boys Don’t Cry come to mind) but now, Portlandia brings her up to a whole new level.  The only question is:  Will she try the Marion Berry Pancakes or the Fritatta?? Season 3 of Portlandia starts early next year.

In related news, Sevigny just did a reading in NYC in support of the recently jailed Pussy Riot.  Check that out below.  Nice to see a Massachusetts native doing well (She was born in Springfield):
