Far and beyond her notoriety as an actor is Alanis Morissette’s fame as a singer/songwriter. However, one cannot ignore her impressive resume of on screen performances. She has played guest roles on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm, Nip/Tuck and Weeds. And as far as movies go, she pretty much nailed playing a character who is none too easy to capture: God. This time around, Morissette will be venturing to NBC’s funniest new sitcom, Up All Night.
The series has not exactly been musically oblivious. The winning character of Ava (Maya Rudolph) has celebrated her past as a successful music artist. And we’re about to meet her former bandmember in the form of Morissette. Reportedly, the artist will play a hip-hop star who toured with Ava as part of their band Sound LLC throughout the 1990s. And that…is magical.
I know Morissette is a polarizing figure in the music-loving community; I happen to be a staunch supporter. For the lot of you who are in the same camp, tune in to Up All Night on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. Morissette’s will join Rudolph, Will Arnett and Christina Applegate on an episode set to air sometime in early 2012.
