Weird Al to play “Smoking Man Baby” in Happy! Season 2

Syfy’s Happy! is about to get nuts! TVLine is reporting that none other than Weird Al Yankovic is set to guest star on Season 2 of the hit TV show as the voice of Smoking Man Baby, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Per the report, the character is described as “toxic masculinity in a diaper,” or, a baby who is a “jealous, volatile baby blowhard with full tats and a cigarette always dangling from his mouth.” Sounds like a match made in Heaven!

Yankovic is just the latest guest star to join Happy! Season 2, joining the likes of Ann-Margret and wrestler Big Show.

Based on the New York Times best-selling author Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name, Happy! follows Nick Sax (Christopher Meloni) – an intoxicated, corrupt ex-cop turned hit man – who is adrift in a world of casual murder, soulless sex and betrayal. After a hit gone wrong, his inebriated life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue winged horse named Happy (Patton Oswalt). In the must-see finale, Sax and Happy are locked in a climatic confrontation to rescue Hailey (Bryce Lorenzo) from Very Bad Santa’s (Joseph Reitman) lair, as Merry (Lili Mirojnick) sets out to save Amanda (Medina Senghore) from a far more powerful foe. The series also stars Ritchie Coster (Blue) and Patrick Fischler (Smoothie).
