Girls Exclusive: Donald Glover Is Playing [Spoiler]

Donald Glover GirlsEver since photos leaked of Girls auteur Lena Dunham shooting scenes for Season 2 of the HBO phenom with Community cut-up Donald Glover, the Internet’s been abuzz. Who’s he playing? What’s the story? Why isn’t anyone telling us anything? For answers, TVLine turns to the show’s creator-writer-director-star.

“I like to act like we’re making Lost, and the show is full of incredible spoilers,” she tells us with a laugh. “Even though the show [from week to week] is just a slight shift in people’s emotional landscapes, I like to act like we’re protecting state secrets.

“So we really want Season 2 to be a surprise to viewers,” she continues, “because there’s a lot of fun stuff planned, a lot of fun guest stars. I really think with Season 2, we sort of hit new heights of delirium and of fantastically lewd behavior.”

In other words, what Dunham is trying hard not to reveal is that Glover will be playing an android. Obviously!

Yes, she jokes. “We’re entering sort of Battlestar Galactica territory, and he’s going to be the ship captain.”

So who do you think Glover will be playing? Who do you hope he’ll be playing? Theories below.

    I think he’ll be playing a character written specifically so they can stop getting criticized for not having any black characters.

    Fine by me, though! He’ll be fantastic whatever they give him.

  2. Josh says:

    Um…what about Community…Please..please..please don’t tell me Donald/Troy is leaving too now. I wouldn’t be able to take it!

  3. Greg says:

    Um he’ll be playing the token Black Guy

    I have really been pleasantly surprised at how good “Girls” is. It’s well-acted with cleverly funny writing. I’m hooked.

  5. Nate says:

    Wow. This article is even more pointless than I could have imagined. The spoiler is that you don’t know who he is playing? That is some serious investigative journalism. This is Pulitzer material right here.

  6. mansonjohn says:

    I hope he plays Elijah’s new boyfriend since Elijah is moving in with Hannah and it seems like he’s going to break up with his current boyfriend.
