According to the Hollywood Reporter, Portlandia is returning January 9th to IFC—but unlike last year when Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein wouldn't stop hogging the camera, this season promises to prominently feature a slew of deserving and underrated Portland-based actors and entertainers. Such as? Longtime Portland actor and resident, Tim Robbins! Director/actor/Voodoo Doughnut cashier, Penny Marshall! 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer (AKA Storm Large's next door neighbor and vocal coach). Timbers Army member/bicycle activist/OregonLive commenter and Bridesmaids star Kristen Wiig! And Lake Oswego resident Andy Samberg (I know, I know... not technically Portland—but close enough!).
Congrats to all of these unsung Portland talents who will finally get their day in the sun—and a bird on it!
