Alec Baldwin wants to visit Portlandia


Hank Williams Jr's best friend forever Alec Baldwin says that after he checks out of 30 Rock, he wants to go on vacation in Portlandia.

On his podcast, "Here's The Thing," Baldwin asked Portlandia star Fred Armisen if he could make an appearance on the IFC comedy. And Alec Baldwin gets what Alec Baldwin wants...or else.

"I think you would come from Southern California and you’d order all kinds of meats; a meat aficionado," Armisen said. "People think of it as a veggie place, but it’s actually a very meaty place. They’re very into ... yeah, it’s very like cured meats and sausages, but we haven’t explored that that much."

Baldwin didn't want to just be a meat aficionado though - he wants to be a meat salesman.

"[I could have] all kinds of charts and graphs of the loins and the sections of the pig and the cow and the organs," he said.

Chloe Sevigny is heading to Portlandia in season 3 as a new hipster on the block. Just what Portland needs more of, right? 

"Portlandia" returns to IFC in January.

Have you seen Portlandia? I've heard good things but am not sure I want to sit through that much Armisen. He tends to wear on me after a while.

I came to the show from the other side of it. I haven't watched a full episode of SNL in over 20 years at least. That is fully from a lack of interest and liking very few if any of the clips I have seen. So when I heard it was a spin-off of SNL I avoid it. That was until I heard who the mayor was and I checked it out. What I found was easily one of the best shows on TV. I love it and it is one of only a couple of shows I get excited about when the new ones are on. The other being Doctor Who and yeah I still have not seen their work on SNL.
