Andrew Rannells Confirms 'Series Regular' Status for HBO's GIRLS Season 4
In an interview with Zap2it.com at last night's 'Looking' premiere, Broadway vet Andrew Rannells confirmed that he will not only be returning to the HBO award-winning comedy GIRLS for the second half of season 3, but has also been bumped up to series regular status for the recently-announced fourth season of the series.
"I'm happy to say that I get to join the cast of 'Girls' next year full-time, so I'm very, very happy about that," Rannells told the site, adding, "I'm very excited."
The news marks the actors return to series TV following his now defunct NBC comedy 'The New Normal.' As he shared last night, his 'Girls' character Elijah, has a challenging year ahead of him. "He's trying very hard. Elijah's trying very hard to get back in with those girls because he didn't leave on the best of terms," Rannells says of his reappearance in Season 3. "So he's trying very hard to sort of mend some fences there. I think it works, I think it works."
