After initially making her name as the daring indie darling in films including "Kids" and "Boys Don't Cry," Chloe Sevigny has found a second home on the small screen in recent years. After starring turns as a polygamist bride in "Big Love" and transsexual killer in "Hit and Miss," and in addition to her upcoming turn in "American Horror Story" Season 2, Sevigny has now signed on for Season 3 of sketch comedy "Portlandia."
Entertainment Weekly reports that the 37-year-old actress will play Alexandra, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's new roomie. No word yet on what brand of idiosyncratic Pac-Northwesterner Alexandra will represent or exactly how many episodes Sevigny will appear in. What we do know is that anyone who moves in with Fred and Carrie's on-screen alter-egos better have an active obsession with "Battlestar Galactica":
"Portlandia" Season 3 premieres in January 2013 on IFC.
