Chloe Sevigny Boards 'Portlandia's' Third Season
Portland will have one more famous resident in 2013.
An IFC rep confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Chloe Sevigny will appear in the upcoming third season of Emmy-nominated sketch comedy series Portlandia, as first reported by EW.
The Academy Award nominee, best known to TV audiences for five seasons as compound expat Nicki Grant on HBO's Big Love, will play a new roommate to stars and co-creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein.
Portlandia's third run, which kicks off in January, is Sevigny's second big TV gig for the upcoming season. She'll also appear in the second run of FX's American Horror Story as a character dubbed Shelly the Nymphomaniac.
Since premiering in 2010, Portlandia has seen a host of high profile cameos from the likes of Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins, Aubrey Plaza, Eddie Vedder and Portland's recurring faux mayor, Kyle MacLauchlan.
