‘Girls’ Season 4 Adds Spike Jonze, But Not to Direct?

While we were away at Comic-Con 2014, ‘Girls‘ season 4 made its post unanticipated casting yet in giving a role to Judd Apatow’s daughter Maude, but the latest addition seems even more unusual. Spike Jonze will put in an appearance, but rather than remain behind the camera, the ‘Her‘ writer-director will play a character in an upcoming ‘Girls’ season 4 episode.

Via TVLine, HBO has remained predictably tight-lipped about the appearance, but at least confirms that Jonze will put in a season 4 episode appearance as a character named “Marcos.” To his credit at least, Jonze has previously acted in the likes of IFC’s ‘The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret,’ even putting in a brief appearance in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’

Elsewhere, we know of ‘Girls’ season 4 that production will return to the 10-episode format over season 3′s elevation to 12, while series star Andrew Rannells will enter season 4 promoted to series regular, and Adam Driver will remain a regular despite his ‘Star Wars‘ casting. We’ll also see Hannah undertaking the Iowa writers’ graduate school program that became a focus of the season 3 finale, despite the fact that the actual Iowa University denied Dunham the opportunity to film there.

Community‘ star Gillian Jacobs will recur in a season 4 role, joining ‘American Horror Story‘ and ‘Heroes‘ veteran Zachary Quinto, as well as ‘Orange is the New Black’s Natasha Lyonne. Additionally, ‘Parenthood‘ star Jason Ritter will play a small part, while Marin Ireland of ‘Homeland,’ young filmmaker Desiree Akhavan and actor Peter Mark Kendall have been given recurring roles as fellow students in the writing program.

It might be a while yet before we see anything of ‘Girls’ season 4, but what say you? Are you intrigued to see what Spike Jonze brings to Brooklyn, or would you prefer he stay behind the camera?
