‘Girls’ Season 3 Adds ‘Orange is the New Black’ Star Danielle Brooks

Girls Season 3 Danielle Brooks Orange is the New Black
HBO / Netflix

The additions and departures of Netflix’s ‘Orange is the New Black‘ season 2 not withstanding, it seems criminal how long we’ll have to wait for any new episodes. Thankfully, HBO’s ‘Girls‘ season 3 will bring us a Taystee treat earlier on in 2014, sentencing ‘Orange is the New Black’ favorite Danielle Brooks to the Lena Dunham-scripted comedy in season 3!

Brooks revealed the casting announcement herself in an interview with Ebony, offering few details of the solitary guest stint. Curiously, the Netflix star described the ‘Girls’ season 3 stint by saying “I will be the first Black woman to be on ‘Girls,’ so that’s exciting for me.” We’d like to think that couldn’t possibly be true, but thinking back over the first two seasons and similar controversies, we’ve started to wonder how reasonable our doubts might be.

Elsewhere, we know of ‘Girls’ season 3 that the next run has expanded to 12 episodes, and has had casting calls that suggest a character would somehow end up in rehabJon Hamm‘s wife Jennifer Westfeldt has been observed filming on the set, while Michael Zegen (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) has been announced in an unknown role with some speculation that Zegen will replace Christopher Abbott in the role of Charlie. Other guest stars include ‘Doctor Who‘ star Richard E. Grant, ‘Crystal Fairy’ star Gabby Hoffmann, ‘The To Do List”s Sarah Steele and ‘Zero Hour‘ star Amir Arison.

‘Orange is the New Black’ will see Brooks’ character Taystee elevated to series regular for season 3, but what say you? What other familiar faces would you want to see pop up on ‘Girls’ season 3? Check the latest trailer below, and give us your thoughts after the jump!
