Fred and Carrie are getting a new roommate.

Academy Award nominee Chloe Sevigny is joining the cast of Portlandia for the hipster comedy’s third season. The Big Love alum will play Alexandra, a Portlandite who moves in with Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein’s characters (who, naturally, are named Fred and Carrie).

Sevigny follows in the footsteps of actors like Jeff Goldblum, Kristen Wiig, and Tim Robbins, all of whom appeared in Portlandia‘s second season. Kyle MacLauchlan will reprise his role as the mayor of Portland in Season 3 as well.

Sevigny will also appear on American Horror Story: Asylum this fall as a character named Shelly the Nymphomaniac.

Portlandia‘s third season premieres in January 2013 on IFC.
