Sevigny (Big Love) will join the third season of the hipster comedy Portlandia as Alexandra, a Portlandite who moves in with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s characters (who, naturally, are named Fred and Carrie).”
Bieber will voice himself in an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. “The Biebs is poised to attempt to land a spot in a talent show in which Bart is playing piano, only the show’s producers aren’t too keen to put him in the lineup in “The Fabulous Faker Boy” episode.” Bierber broke the news on Twitter which was then taken down:
“Just did a voice over for the SIMPSONS!!! #swaggy,” he wrote, though the tweet has since been removed.
Howard will make a guest appearance in Hawaii Five-O third season, along with Kardashian kid Kendall Jenner within the same episode. “Howard’s scenes will take place in the flashbacks of Danno (Scott Caan) as he recalls his former life as a New Jersey cop. And apparently, the two characters are set to clash.
