Season five of Comedy Central's hilarious, booze-soaked show "Drunk History" is almost here, and to celebrate, the cable network has finally dropped the first trailer for the star-studded batch of new episodes.
As has become tradition for the series -- which features famous folks getting sloshed and recounting historical tales, which are then acted out word for slurred, drunken word by other celebs -- season five features an insanely stacked cast. The season premiere alone features some especially bold names, as revealed in this synopsis:
During the premiere episode Tiffany Haddish narrates museum curator Rose Valland's (Busy Philipps) risky quest to save Europe's masterpieces from the Nazis; Paget Brewster slurs her way through the story of Deborah Sampson (Evan Rachel Wood), the first woman to take a bullet for America during the Revolutionary War; and Amber Ruffin recalls the bravery of "The Angel of the Battlefield," Clara Barton (Mandy Moore), who founded the American Red Cross with the help of surgeon James Dunn (Alexander Skarsgård) and Abraham Lincoln (Jack McBrayer).
And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Here's a rundown of the other guest stars who will be playing historical folks:
Vanessa Bayer, Jillian Bell, Jack Black, Josh Charles, Rob Corddry, Kat Dennings, Kirsten Dunst, Eric Edelstein, Donald Faison, Kevin Farley, Rich Fulcher, Kimiko Glenn, Tony Hale, Colin Hanks, David Harbour, Brian Tyree Henry, John Michael Higgins, Vanessa Hudgens, O'Shea Jackson Jr., David Koechner, Johnny Knoxville, Jane Krakowski, Abbi Jacobson, Daryl Johnson, Alex Karpovsky, Taran Killam, Justin Long, Method Man, Jason Mantzoukas, Tatiana Maslany, Jayma Mays, Joel McHale, Sheaun McKinney, Jerry O'Connell, Keir O'Donnell, Bob Odenkirk, Randall Park, Jesse Plemons, Lauren Potter, Richard Riehle, Jason Ritter, Seth Rogen, Angus Sampson, Paul Scheer, Martin Starr, Ali Stroker, Raven Symoné, Jorma Taccone, Amber Tamblyn, Allison Tolman, Shannon Woodward, Jimmy O.
