LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Chloe Sevigny is moving from Utah to Portland – and just like on her recent series “Big Love,” her living arrangements will be just a little out of the ordinary.

Sevigny will be guest-star on the upcoming third season of IFC’s hipster-skewering comedy “Portlandia,” the network told TheWrap. Sevigny will play Alexandra, who moves in with Fred and Carrie (played by the series’ creators and stars, Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein).

Sevigny will also star in the upcoming second season of Ryan Murphy‘s FX drama “American Horror Story: Asylum” as Shelly the Nymphomaniac, a patient who runs up against Jessica Lange, who’ll play the head of the east coast mental institution where the second season is set.

“Portlandia” returns for its third season in January.

EW.com first reported the news of Sevigny’s “Portlandia” casting.
