Ahead of the season 3 premiere of Derek Waters’s Drunk History tomorrow night, Entertainment Weekly sat down for an interview with Waters about the show, and he revealed some of the celebrity guest stars slated to appear throughout the season: Will Ferrell (Roald Dahl), Octavia Spencer (Harriet Tubman), Josh Hartnett (Clark Gable), Jason Momoa (Jean Lafitte), Alia Shawkat (Virginia Hall), and a Las Vegas-set episode featuring Sam Rockwell (Bugsy Seigel) and Dennis Quaid (Lucky Luciano). Waters revealed in July that Maya Rudolph (Griselda Blanco), Giancarlo Esposito, Parker Posey, Jake Johnson, and Taran Killam will also show up in guest roles.
Waters told EW that the season will have more themed episodes – including one all about journalism featuring David Simon – and Miami, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New Orleans, and Oklahoma will also get their own episodes. The Miami episode will feature a story narrated by a drunk Dan Harmon: “I mean, with Dan Harmon, I’ve never been more drunk, and never will be that drunk again,” Waters said. “That was a learning experience. I’m not going to beat Dan Harmon. Usually I try to get to their level or a little below — and with Dan, that was the drunkest I’ve ever been.”
