Patton Oswalt Confirmed as Final New MST3K Cast Member

In an update to the ongoing MST3K Revival Kickstarter, series creator Joel Hodgson revealed the final new cast member for the returning series: Patton Oswalt.

Oswalt will be playing “TV’s Son of TV’s Frank,” the assistant Mad on the new series. He joins fellow mad Felicia Day’s Kinga Forrester, Jonah Ray as the new “test subject,” as well as the new ‘bot voices Baron Vaughn (Servo) and Hampton Yount (Crow).

Oswalt’s casting is a late addition to the show, as he hadn’t been approached until after the kickstarter had already begun (hence no fancy video revealing him), but his addition seems appropriate considering Oswalt’s considerable nerd-cred.

Trae Dorn has been staffing conventions for over twenty years, and is a co-founder of Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con. Trae also wrote and drew the now completed webcomic UnCONventional, and produces the podcasts BS-Free Witchcraft, On This Day With Trae, Stormwood & Associates, and The Nerd & Tie Podcast. This leads many to ask when the hell they have time to actually do anything anymore. Trae says they have the time because they “do it all quite poorly.”
