As I said on the latest episode of the Laughspin Podcast, writers, producers and directors are, more and more, utilizing the it-takes-a-village approach to creating quality comedy television. In other words, there’s seems to be an increasingly inflated number of guest stars, cameos and story arc players embedded within many of our favorite full-time cast members on our favorite shows. Allow us to submit Portlandia’s updated list of guest stars for its third season, which premieres Jan. 4 at 10 pm ET. Here are the folks who will be joining Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein in the hipster-iest town in America:

Roseanne Barr
Matt Berry
Jim Gaffigan
Rose Byrne
Bill Hader
Juliette Lewis (pictured)
Matt Lucas
J Mascis (musician)
Dirty Projectors (band)
Bobby Moynihan
Martina Navratilova (tennis great)
Patton Oswalt
George Wendt

Indie darling Chloe Sevigny will appear on a few episodes as well, playing Carrie’s new roommate Alexandra. And Kyle MacLachlan, Kumail Nanjiani and Jeff Goldblum will make return appearances.

As an added bonus, IFC will air what they’re calling a “pre-premiere” episode on Dec. 14 at 10:30 pm ET, wherein Fred and Carrie find themselves in the middle of a Portland winter, a season never before featured on the show. The episode will be available on IFC.com, the show’s Facebook page and iTunes the following day!
