IFC reports:

Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe®-winning actress Chloë Sevigny (Big Love, American Horror Story) is packing her bags and heading to Portlandia for season three of IFC's original comedy series. Created by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, the Emmy® nominated and Peabody Award-winning show depicts a romanticized and dreamy rendering of the city they love, Portland, OR. Season three is in production now and premieres in January 2013 with ten all-new episodes on IFC.

Sevigny will appear in multiple episodes throughout the third season as Fred and Carrie's roommate named Alexandra. Kyle MacLachlan (Made In Jersey, Desperate Housewives) will also return as the city's mayor. Stay tuned for more new residents visiting Portlandia during season three. Guest stars last season included Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic Park, Independence Day), Tim Robbins (The Shawshank Redemption) and Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, SNL).
Speaking of SNL, its news season (sans Kristen Wiig) begins in September.

Chloe recently took part in a reading at Ace Hotel for Pussy Riot who were then found guilty and sentenced to two years in prison. Watch video from the event below...

Mia is a killer. She's a transgender women. And she's also a father. Chloe Sevigny stars in this new original British TV series, playing the role of a contract killer who learns she fathered a son 10 years before. The indie darling, best known for playing provocative roles in avant-garde films (American Psycho, Dogville) and most recently the cold and independent shopaholic Nicki in Big Love, is back in yet another deep, complex role.

how did that event help the Pussy Riot girls in any way? Just a way for rich hipsters to say they did "something" while actually accomplishing nothing. No one went to the embassy. No one did anything at the UN. ACLU? Just like Occupy shit; your mouths move but your ass just cant get out of Whole Foods long enough to get something done. Just the venue makes money and the celebs feel like they "did something" love this new NYC you idiots made. all talk- no balls, no talent, no credibility.

That's not true it doesn't do anything. It gives the celebrities free publicity.
