Martha Plimpton, Bob Costas, J.K. Simmons, Linda Lavin, Tawny Newsome, Christine Woods and Richard Kind are to guest star on Season 3 of IFC's baseball-themed comedy, Brockmire.

The show is to resume airing in the spring, but has already been renewed for a fourth season. It stars Hank Azaria as Jim Brockmire, a substance-abusing, game announcer seeking redemption after a high-profile meltdown in reaction to the discovery of his wife's infidelity.

The former 'Christmas Vacation' siblings will appear in the upcoming 'Roseanne' spinoff series.

Past cast members Amanda Peet, Tyrel Jackson Williams and Becky Ann Baker will return on a recurring basis for the eight-episode, third season. Peet plays Jim's ex-girlfriend Jules, Williams plays his best friend Charles and Baker plays Jim's sister Jean.

Hank Azaria in Brockmire

"Season 3 takes place one year after his stint in rehab, with Brockmire doing play-by-play in the radio booth for the major leagues in central Florida while maintaining his brazen and narcissistic tendencies, despite actually being on the wagon," a press release said. "When an opportunity arises for Jim and his new co-host Gabby to take over as lead broadcasters in Oakland, he must fight to change his ever-present amorality."

Brockmire started out as a viral short video on Funny Or Die. The series is written and developed by Joel Church-Cooper.
