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).
Happy! is produced by Universal Cable Productions. Executive producers Grant Morrison (Batman, The Invisibles) and Brian Taylor (Crank, Gamer) co-wrote the pilot teleplay. Neal Moritz, Pavun Shetty and Toby Jaffe of Original Film (The Fast and the Furious franchise), Meloni and showrunner Patrick Macmanus also executive produce.
