Historical reenactors

Posted by Melissa Tunstall on Fri, Jun 6, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Back in January, revelers, historians, and general Charleston lovers gathered at Royal American for their shot of drunken fame during the taping of Drunk History’s second season. And now, we know what celebrities took part in the filming.

And boy is it a list. According to Entertainment Weekly, David Cross, Tony Hale, Alia Shawkat (all three from Arrested Development), Adrianne Palicki, Zach Gilford, Jesse Plemons (another trio from one show, this time it’s Friday Night Lights), Paul Scheer, Nick Kroll, Jason Mantzoukas (all from The League), Terry Crews, Joe Lo Truglio, Courteney Cox, Johnny Knoxville, Laura Dern, Patton Oswalt, Charlie Day, Jack Black, Casey Wilson, and Jack McBrayer will be in the second season. But that’s not all. Lisa Bonet, Jason Momoa, Matt Walsh, Tim Heidecker, Michaela Watkins, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Busy Philipps, Jason Ritter, Jerry O’Connell, Jon Daly, Emily Deschanel, Brett Gelman, Bobby Moynihan, Nathan Fielder, Steven Yeun, Retta, Ken Marino, Jayma Mays, Martin Starr, Jeffrey Ross, and Jaleel White — yes that’s Urkel — will also appear.

We’re hoping for Weird Al to play John C. Calhoun — or at least an Urkel sighting in the Holy City’s episode.
The second season premieres on July 1 on Comedy Central at 10 p.m. and will be set in Birmingham, Ala. No word yet as to when the Charleston episode will air.
