‘Bob’s Burgers’ Sends Jon Hamm’s Career Down the Toilet for Star-Studded Season 3
Even as it heads into its third season beginning on Sunday September 30, it’s easy for ‘Bob’s Burgers‘ to have slipped through the cracks when it comes to FOX animation, particularly with the choke-hold Seth MacFarlane seems to have. Still, compounding the recent news of an ‘Archer’ cross-over with H. Jon Benjamin, ‘Bob’s Burgers’ season 3 is easily going to grab your attention with guest stars like ‘Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, and a deluxe feast of others you need to see to believe.
‘Bob’s Burgers’ is serving up all the fixings for season 3, and we won’t even bother with a “side of Jon Hamm” joke once you’ve seen the list of voice talent making their way through the burger joint this fall. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, series star H. Jon Benjamin served up a full platter of guest stars for the upcoming season, set to premiere on September 30.
First up is ‘Mad Men’ star Jon Hamm, portraying of all things, a talking toilet. “It’s a kind of ‘E.T.’ homage, but instead of an alien, it’s this high-end talking electronic toilet that falls off a truck and lands in the woods,” says Bouchard. “And Gene finds it, ‘E.T.’-style. It’s kind of a love story between a boy and a toilet.”
The season will also feature a Thanksgiving episode wherein recurring guest star Kevin Kline portrays the family’s landlord, pretending the Belchers are his own family, as well as a Christmas episode where “[Zach Galifianakis] plays this guy who believes he used to be a mannequin,” Bouchard says. “It’s a Christmas episode that’s kind of a very strange take on, like, ‘A Christmas Story’ meets ‘Mannequin.’”
Not to mention, real-life married couple and ‘Parks and Recreation‘ stars Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally will appear in the season’s second episode replacing the children at the diner, while running a pot farm on the side.
And that’s just the beginning! Kurt Braunohler, ‘Breaking Bad‘ star Bob Odenkirk, ‘SNL‘ alum Will Forte and Fred Armisen, David Wain, ‘Arrested Development‘s Jeffrey Tambor, Linda Lavin, Gary Cole, Aziz Ansari, Paul F. Tompkins returns, Robert Ben Garant, and Tim Heidecker will all appear over the course of the season.
