MEAN GIRLS' Daniel Franzese Joins HBO's LOOKING

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Franzese -- who appeared as 'Damien' in the cult 2004 comedy Mean Girls -- is set for an arc in the upcoming season of HBO's LOOKING.

Read the original story here.

Franzese will play 'Eddie', "a new love interest who works in the San Francisco nonprofit community."

LOOKING stars Jonathan Groff, Murray Bartlett and Frankie Alvarez; Lauren Weedman, Russell Tovey and Raul Castillo were recently upped to series regulars.

Aside from Mean Girls, Franzese has appeared on the big screen in War of the Worlds, The Iron Man, On the Inside, and will next be seen in Mind Puppets. His other TV credits include CSI, Burn Notice, Party Down, Foodies, Electric City and the upcoming series Dating in LA and Other Urban Myths.

About LOOKING:

'Looking' offers up the unfiltered experiences of three close friends living -- and loving -- in modern-day San Francisco. Friendship may bind them, but each is at a markedly different point in his journey: Patrick (Jonathan Groff) is the 29-year-old video game designer getting back into the dating world in the wake of his ex's engagement; aspiring artist Agustín (Frankie J. Alvarez), 31, is questioning the idea of monogamy amid a move to domesticate with his boyfriend; and the group's oldest member -- longtime waiter Dom (Murray Bartlett), 39 -- is facing middle age with romantic and professional dreams still unfulfilled.

The trio's stories intertwine and unspool dramatically as they search for happiness and intimacy in an age of unparalleled choices -- and rights -- for gay men. Also important to the 'Looking' mix is the progressive, unpredictable, sexually open culture of the Bay Area, with real San Francisco locations serving as a backdrop for the group's lives. Rounding out the 'Looking' world are a bevy of dynamic gay men including Kevin (Russell Tovey), Lynn (Scott Bakula), and Richie (Raul Castillo), as well as a wide-range of supporting characters like Dom's roommate Doris (Lauren Weedman), Agustín's boyfriend Frank (O.T. Fagbenle), and Patrick's co-worker Owen (Andrew Law).

'Looking' was created by Michael Lannan and is executive produced by Sarah Condon ('Bored to Death') and Andrew Haigh, who wrote and directed the critically-lauded 'Weekend.'
