Josh Homme, Duff McKagan Set for Portlandia
Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and former Guns N’ Roses bass player Duff McKagan are among the musicians set to appear on the upcoming season of the IFC comedy series Portlandia.
Other musicians joining Homme and McKagan on the 2014 season include Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra, the Monkees’ Michael Nesmith and jazz duo Tuck and Patti, so it’s an eclectic bunch. Actors set to appear in some episodes include Kirsten Dunst, Olivia Wilde and Maya Rudolph.
Portlandia is the brainchild of Saturday Night Live’s Fred Armisen, who also stars in the show, and former Sleater Kinney vocalist and guitarist Carrie Brownstein. Past rock royalty who have graced the set include Jack White, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, The Sex Pistols’ Steve Jones, Sarah McLachlan and former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr.
Season four of Portlandia will begin at 10 p.m. ET on Feb. 27.
