Russian Doll season 2: Why is comedian Rosie O’Donnell in the credits?

Much of Season 2 of Russian Doll takes place in the New York City subway, but did you recognize the voice of the subway announcer?

Eagle-eyed viewers may have noticed Rosie O’Donnell’s name in the credits, but the comedian doesn’t appear at any point in the season. Well, his face no, but his voice yes.

“He’s the metro announcer. She’s the, ‘Next stop is Astor Place. Next stop, 14th Street,” said series co-creator and star Natasha Lyonne EO.

“It was very generous to [O’Donnell]. I just texted her, because we knew we wanted a real New York accent. We were kind of walking the line, we were like, ‘Rosie Perez, Rosie… Mike Rappaport. Who does this part?’ And so I texted Rosie, and she started sending me these little voice memos.

O’Donnell has previously appeared on shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Nip/Tuck, and more recently had roles on Showtime’s SMILF and I Know This Much is True opposite Mark Ruffalo. Next up for the comedian is American Gigolo, a television series based on the 1980 film of the same name and starring Jon Bernthal.

Four years after season 1, Nadia (Lyonne) and Alan (Charlie Barnett) travel through time in the series’ second installment, and the subway – and more specifically Train 6 – is their version of a travel machine in the weather.

Russian Doll season 2 is now streaming on Netflix. If you’ve watched the new episodes, check out our guides on the Russian Doll Season 2 Ending Explained and the Russian Doll Season 2 Timeline Explained. Plus, here’s our guide to everything we know so far about a potential Russian Doll season 3.
