Cate Blanchett Will Spoof Marina Abramovic in Documentary Now Season 3


The episode is titled "Waiting For The Artist."

Cate Blanchett will appear in the upcoming third season of the mockumentary series Documentary Now on IFC.

Blanchett will portray a parody version of performance artist Marina Abramovic in an adaptation of the 2012 Berlin International Film Festival audience award-winning documentary, "Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present." The film documented Abramovic's famous MoMA retrospective, where she sat and made eye contact with each individual attendee.

The parody episode, titled "Waiting For The Artist," will see Blanchett joined by Fred Armisen as fellow names in the art world. The show is hosted by fellow Oscar-winner Helen Mirren.

The show, created by SNL's Armisen and Bill Hader, spoofs a different famous documentary each episode: past films parodied have included Grey Gardens and VICE News docs. Seth Meyers also helped create the show, which is directed by Rhys Thomas and executive produced by Lorne Michaels.

Documentary Now returns to IFC on February 20.
