Fred Armisen is raising some flags…
The 54-year-old half-Venezuelan American actor has joined the cast of HBO Max’s pirate comedy Our Flag Means Death, joining stars Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi.
The series hails from writer David Jenkins, Garrett Basch and Dan Halsted.
Created by Jenkins, who also serves as showrunner, Our Flag Means Death is based loosely on the true adventures of Stede Bonnet (Darby), a pampered aristocrat who abandoned his life of privilege to become a pirate.
Armisen joins the cast in a recurring role. Details about his character have not been revealed.
The ensemble cast also includes Ewen Bremner, David Fane, Nat Faxon, Nathan Foad, Joel Fry, Leslie Jones, Samson Kayo, Guz Khan, Rory Kinnear, Matt Maher, Kristian Nairn, Con O’Neill and Vico Ortiz.
Our Flag Means Death is executive produced by Waititi, Jenkins, Basch and Halsted.
Armisen’s recent credits include Portlandia, Los Espookys and Documentary Now!
