Fred Armisen on "Portlandia"
by Sheryl Stewart,posted Feb 17 2011 3:43PM
There's a strange feeling of deja vu I get when I watch "Portlandia". I know these are fictional characters. I know that's SNL's Fred Armisen in a wig, but sometimes I could SWEAR I've run into them at New Seasons or Stumptown. I just know angry bike guy has zipped right in front of me when I'm looking for a parking spot on NW 23rd. That says a lot about the attention to detail Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein put into this show....so eerily accurate, it almost feels like a documentary sometimes. Haha!
I jumped at the chance to chat with Fred Armisen about "Portlandia" and what he loves and finds so amusing about our city and.....well, US. He also shared a little about what he'd like to do in the upcoming season 2, which films this summer. I hope he's serious about giving me a small part. ;-) Enjoy!
