Comedy Central’s adaptation of classic FunnyorDie sketch “Drunk History” exceeded our wildest expectation across its first season, bringing in countless celebrities both to inebriatedly narrate and star in their best recollections of world events. Now that season 2 has been set for a summer 2014 debut, Comedy Central has revealed the full roster of guest stars, including some famous faces from ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Friday Night Lights,’ ‘Game of Thrones‘ and many, many more.
Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, we’ve learned that season 1 stars Stephen Merchant, Winona Ryder, Chris Parnell, Jack Black, Casey Wilson, and ‘30 Rock‘ alum Jack McBrayer will all pop up in new roles. Paget Brewster and Jen Kirkman will return among the titular drunk narrators, joining new additions Jonah Ray, Phil Hendrie, Duncan Tressell, Molly McAleer, and Morgan Murphy.
As if that weren’t enough, we can also expect appearances from ‘Arrested Development‘ stars David Cross, Tony Hale, and Alia Shawkat, ‘Friday Night Lights’ vets Adrianne Palicki, Zach Gilford, and Jesse Plemons, ‘The League”s Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, and Jason Mantzoukas, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine”s Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio, along with Courteney Cox, Johnny Knoxville, Laura Dern, John Lithgow, and Jordan Peele.

Said ‘Drunk History’ co-creator Derek Waters:
Casting season 2, I had one thing in mind — to keep clear eyes and a full heart so I wouldn’t lose. I was lucky enough to get several cast members from Friday Night Lights as well as the Hollywood Hall of Fame of my favorite dream actors to work with, no matter what their IMDb star meter is.
