Last fall, Fred Armisen was in Portland to film the final season of Portlandia. He's hardly given us any time to miss him: He's already coming back, this time to shoot his mockumentary series, Documentary Now, which co-stars Bill Hader and began filming in the Portland area today.
Portland casting company Weeble Mountain recently announced that the company was hiring extras for the show's third season, which will film in and around Portland from June 4-27.
Documentary Now premiered online in 2015 with DRONEZ: The Hunt for El Chingon, a parody of Vice News, in which Armisen and Hader play tote-carrying, mustachioed journalists who are assassinated while investigating an infamous Mexican drug cartel.
The show went on to get picked up by IFC, the same network that aired Portlandia. It's received two Emmy nominations, both for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series. One episode, about a fictional '70s soft-rock group called the Blue Jean Committee, even inspired an album.
Documentary Now's third season will premiere in 2019. The call for extras is still open—specifically, they're looking for pro bowlers and "a chubby kid with a great sense of humor."
