Maude Apatow is the latest to join the already-extensive list of guest stars—including Orange Is the New Black‘s Natasha Lyonne and Community’s Gillian Jacobs—set for season four of HBO’s Girls, the network confirmed to EW.
Tag: Girls (1-10 of 41)
Natasha Lyonne is breaking out of Litchfield and heading to Brooklyn. The Orange is the New Black actress will appear on Girls next season, EW has confirmed. It’s not known how many episodes she’ll appear in, but TV Line, who first reported the news of Lyonne’s casting, says she’ll play a character named Rickey. Lyonne will join previously announced guest stars Gillian Jacobs, Jason Ritter, and Zachary Quinto in the Lena Dunham-created comedy.
Girls‘ fourth season will debut on HBO next year.
Will Zachary Quinto live long in Prospect Park? The Star Trek actor is guest-starring in at least one upcoming episode of Girls, HBO has confirmed. Quinto was photographed yesterday in Brooklyn shooting a scene with Girls creator/executive producer/star Lena Dunham. The network wouldn’t release any details about his character, including how many installments he will appear in.
Quinto’s TV resume includes American Horror Story, Heroes, and 24. READ FULL STORY
She has graduated from Greendale and is now headed to Hannah: Community star Gillian Jacobs has snagged a recurring role on season 4 of HBO’s Girls. EW checked in with Jacobs to talk about her new job — and, yes, the end of her old one. READ FULL STORY
Gillian Jacobs is heading from Greendale to Brooklyn (or Iowa).
Community star Jacobs will appear on the upcoming season of Girls, EW has confirmed. TVLine, which first reported the news, says she’ll play a character named Mimi-Rose Howard and will first appear in episode 5.
Girls, which ended its third season with Hannah seemingly bound for the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, will come back to HBO in early 2015.
Maybe Hannah and Adam aren’t consciously uncoupling after all.
Allison Williams on why HBO's 'Girls' are still friends -- and what's in store for season 3's finale
When we first met Lena Dunham’s Girls, each one had a clear role to play: Hannah (Lena Dunham) was our neurotic protagonist. Shoshannah (Zosia Mamet) was the naive one. Jessa (Jemima Kirke) was the selfish free spirit. And Marnie — played with pretty, uptight perfection by Allison Williams — was the only member of the group who really seemed to have her life figured out.
That was then. Since its pilot, Girls has systematically stripped away everything that helped Marnie maintain her carefully constructed facade — her long-term boyfriend, her job, even her friendships with the other girls. But even though her character started out season 3 having truly hit rock bottom — before digging even deeper — Williams is convinced that things really are looking up for Marnie as the dramedy heads into its third finale. (Even the hate-sex she’s been having with Shosh’s ex-boyfriend Ray is a net positive!) Why? See her reasoning below — as well as her thoughts on embarrassing music videos, offscreen curveballs, and why these four are still friends, despite all evidence that they shouldn’t be.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I want to start out by asking point blank if you, personally, like Marnie.
ALLISON WILLIAMS: [Laughs] I do! I would probably be friends with her — I’m sure she would drive me crazy, but I would employ a very straightforward method of communicating with her. I think she’s someone who benefits from that — I think she really is drawn to people who are somewhat direct, if not slightly mean to her. READ FULL STORY
You might recognize Clara Mamet from her ABC show The Neighbors, which is about keeping up with the Joneses—if the Joneses were aliens. (Much like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, except Neighbors is scripted.) Or you might recognize her because she looks quite a bit like her sister Zosia Mamet, who plays Shoshanna on Girls. (Yep, that makes her another daughter of David Mamet.)
But soon, you may recognize her from movies as well. Mamet just wrote, directed and starred in her first film, Two-Bit Waltz, an autobiographical jaunt that features William H. Macy (Fargo), Rebecca Pigeon (Red), and Jared Gilman (Moonrise Kingdom). We stopped to catch up with the 19-year-old to discuss her movie, what it’s like having aliens for neighbors, and whether we can expect to see a Mamet Sisters project anytime soon. We also got a sneak peek at tonight’s episode of The Neighbors; check below to watch.
Will Blerta return?
Lena Dunham will host Saturday Night Live March 8, NBC announced today. This will be the Girls creator/writer/star’s first time hosting the program. She’ll be joined by musical guest The National, also making their SNL debut.
After the news broke, Dunham tweeted, “Thank you for the SNL love. Dream come true. Can’t wait to debut my character “girl who googled serial killers all night & has lots to say”!”
SNL returns March 1 with host Jim Parsons and musical guest Beck.
If you missed the two-part season premiere of Girls on Sunday night because of the Golden Globes — or, you know, living your life — HBO wants to help you catch up before Sunday’s brand-new episode. The network has just made the first two episodes of season 3 available online for free.
The series premiere offers a look into where our favorite 20-something New Yorkers are now — Hannah is playing house with Adam and making headway on her e-book, Shoshanna is busy exploring her sexuality after dumping Ray, Jessa is in the middle of a stint in rehab in upstate New York, and Marnie is sleeping on her mom’s couch and commuting to Ray’s coffee shop via NJ transit on the daily.
Stream episode 1 (“Females Only”) and episode 2 (“Truth or Dare”) below:

Girls producers went on the defensive Thursday evening in response to a question during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association press tour about the show’s nudity.
But that’s putting it mildly.
If you ask exec producer Judd Apatow, who addressed the incident after the panel, the wording of the reporter’s question itself, directed to creator and star Lena Dunham, was not only “offensive” but “sexist” and “misogynistic.” (For the record, here it is verbatim: “I don’t get the purpose of all the nudity on the show — by [Dunham] in particularly. I feel like I’m walking into a trap where you go, ‘Nobody complains about all the nudity on Game of Thrones,’ but I get why they do it. They do it to be salacious and titillate people. And your character is often nude at random times for no reason.”) READ FULL STORY
HBO has greenlit Girls for a fourth season.
The Lena Dunham-created series is scheduled to shoot in spring and will premiere in 2015.
The announcement was made at the top of the Girls‘ panel at the Television Critics Association press tour, where the first question — about Hannah’s nudity on the series — created a stir among producers.
That sort of sums everything up, doesn’t it?
In this newest trailer for Girls season 3, Shoshanna marvels at how little her three older pals have accomplished in the four years since they graduated college. (Wait — we don’t count spending two days hooking up with Patrick Wilson as an accomplishment?)
If the clip is any indication, that all could change in the show’s upcoming episodes. Hannah, at least, seems like she’ll find some success during a meeting with a publisher. But elsewhere, things seem pretty business as usual; Marnie is telling someone standing offscreen that he can’t break up with her. Jessa is looking moody and pseudo-European. Hannah is doing spit takes and dancing around and incessantly talking about food. (It’s like she knows what the haters are saying!) At least they still seem to be having a little more fun than they did last season.
