Portlandia Season 2 To Feature Guest Appearances By Eddie Vedder, Isaac Brock And Other Musicians
IFC delivered some good news for fans of their returning comedy series Portlandia. Not only is the seriesí second season set to premiere a little bit earlier than originally planned, but itís also set to include a bevy of known musicians, who join the list of guest stars in the seriesí second season.
As far as the above mention of the series returning ďa little bit sooner,Ē the series is only returning a few days ahead of the originally scheduled date. IFCís update says Portlandia, which stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein and pokes fun at the trendy Pacific-northwest scene, is set to return for its second season on Friday, January 6th at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT (as opposed to Monday, January 9th).
Joining Kyle MacLachlan, Penny Marshall, Jack McBrayer, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Tim Robbins, Andy Samberg, Amber Tamblyn, and Kristen Wiig among the series upcoming guest stars are musicians Isaac Brock (Modest Mouse), Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) Johnny Marr (The Smiths), singer/songwriter Joanna Newsom, Annie Clark (St. Vincent), and Pearl Jamís Eddie Vedder. Given Vedderís involvement in the Seattle grunge scene back in the 90ís, his participation in the series seems particularly fitting, considering the relatively close proximity of the fictional locale of IFCís hilarious little series to Seattle.
IFC doesnít say much about what these musicians will be doing on the show other than to say that they ďwill be taking up temporary residence in the showís satirical and dreamy rendering of Portland, Or.Ē Vague but... awesome.
