‘Girls’ Season 4 Adds ‘Obvious Child’ Star Jake Lacy
While filming for season 4 of ‘Girls‘ is already underway in New York, the show isn’t quite done adding some new talent to the roster. Joining an already stellar line-up of guest stars is Jake Lacy, who played Jenny Slate‘s love interest in the indie rom-com ‘Obvious Child.’
EW reports that Lacy is the latest name to join the roster of guest stars on season 4 of ‘Girls.’ You probably remember Lacy from ‘Obvious Child,’ in which he played Jenny Slate’s love interest, or from his role in the final season of ‘The Office.’ (He played one of the many average white men in said office.)
Lacy’s role on ‘Girls’ hasn’t yet been revealed, but it is a recurring part, which means he’s likely going to end up as someone’s new boyfriend/sex partner/co-worker/barista/drug mule. He also joins an amazing group of guest stars for the next season, including ‘Community‘ star Gillian Jacobs, ‘American Horror Story‘ favorite Zachary Quinto, director Spike Jonze (who will be acting, not directing — he does that sometimes), Maude Apatow (daughter of series producer Judd), ‘Orange Is the New Black‘ star Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Ritter of ‘Parenthood.’
Whew. That’s a whole bunch of super cool people. ‘Girls’ will return in 2015. Until then, grab a cupcake, sit in your bathtub and hang out — not while you wait for the show to come back; I just mean for funsies.
