Of course it was Jim Brockmire (Hank Azaria) who was responsible for the grossest weeks of Bob Costas’ illustrious sportscasting career.
In the “Brockmire” Season 3 trailer, released Wednesday, the titular IFC character tells guest-star Costas: “I was the one who gave you pink eye at the Sochi Olympics.”
“But the tough part was getting it in the second eye,” he twists the knife.
We don’t even know what that means Brockmire must have done back in 2014, but it was surely disgusting. This is “Brockmire.”
In addition to Costas, Richard Kind, Linda Lavin, Martha Plimpton, J.K. Simmons, Christine Woods, George Brett and Becky Ann Baker will all guest star on the third season. Azaria, Amanda Peet and Tyrel Jackson Williams star on the Funny or Die comedy.
Season 3 takes place three months after Brockmire’s stint in rehab. The Major League Baseball announcer is back on the wagon but still a disaster. When an opportunity arises for Jim and his new co-host Gabby (Tawny Newsome) to take over as lead broadcasters in Oakland, he must fight to change his ever-present amorality, per IFC.
Good luck with that Jim. That’s per us.
“Brockmire” returns for its third season on Wednesday, April 3 at 10/9c on IFC.
