Community Alum Gillian Jacobs Cast on HBO’s Girls


When the news that Community got cancelled hit me, it really hit me. I think it is one of the funniest shows on TV with one of the best casts on TV. After all the weeping commenced, I begin to worry about not seeing some of the actors and actresses from that great show on a weekly basis. But my first fears have been quelled. Why? Because Gillian Jacobs (who played buzzkill Britta to perfection) was just cast for season four of Girls.

All we really know about Gillian’s role in Girls is that she will play a character named Mimi-Rose Howard. Sometimes, everything you need to know about a person is in a name. Mimi Rose kinda sounds like she could be uppity, and another potential buzzkill, but how that will figure into the Girls story line I do not yet know. One thing we do know for sure is that it will be a recurring character after the fifth episode of season four, where she debuts. So Britta graduated and moved to New York to make it big as a hipster, huh? Come on, just let me have this delusion, please?

In all seriousness, Gillian Jacobs is an incredibly talented actress (Choke, as one example) and I am really happy to hear she is the first Greendale alum to have landed a steady gig. Truth is, I just wanna know where Danny Pudi is gonna end up. I love that dude. But Britta on Girls is a really good start and a step in the right direction.
