Exclusive: Patrick Wilson Hooks Up With Girls

Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

A gifted man will enter the orbit — and possibly a bed — of HBO’s Girls, now that Patrick Wilson has landed a juicy guest-starring role in Season 2 of the talked-about comedy, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Wilson will play Joshua, a fortysomething doctor who lives next door to where Hannah works and becomes a potential love interest to Lena Dunham’s insecure 24-year-old.

Hannah, for the uninitiated, has just come off a season where she pined for, was in a relationship with and ultimately wasn’t sure how she felt about the enigmatic Adam. Aside from Wilson’s obvious charms, his sexy doc could offer a more mature option for the wannabe writer.

What do you think of Wilson’s casting, you Girls-crazy fans out there?

    • Seriously. Patrick Wilson in “Little Children”, all coital and naked with Kate Winslet, was beyond delicious. He and Lena Dunham…well, we’ll see what chemistry that yields! He’s definitely the perfect fit for “Girls” indie/quirky/honest/sexually-raw tone & style.

  • I’ve kinda been hating the very idea of this show (admittedly haven’t seen it), but now I’m going to have to watch. Darn, I’m easy where Patrick Wilson is concerned.

    • Same. Haven’t watched a single episode and really wasn’t interested in ever doing so….but, damn, they went and got Patrick Wilson. He’s a favorite of mine.

  • I thought they were going to cast some weird guy for that role.
    thank God is Patrick! he is HANDSOME!
    I’m now liking the idea of Hannah and that character Joshua together.

  • He would never sleep with Hannah. Maybe Marnie–dumb too, but at least she’s cute.

  • Awesome, I love him! Does this mean Adam is gone?

  • This show is brilliant & one of the best things on TV, but my 20-something daughter & her friends can’t watch it because it hits too close to home; same reason I couldn’t watch “Thirtysomething” 25 years ago. Sorry to lose Adam, though–the actor is terrific & the character is priceless.

  • Am i the only one who thinks Patrick Wilson is WAY too good looking for her? I guess when you’re the boss of your own show you can cast anyone to be your love interest.

    • completely agree, not to be a prick, but lena dunham is no where close to his league. its just a little unrealistic….

    • I suspect that the wife who left to go back to San Diego was not a wife at all. All the trappings of the apartment says he is a gay man.

  • Can’t wait! I need HBO to put this season on soon! 10 episodes is not enough!

  • He is awesome, hope they use him better than CBS did!

  • And now…this show is no longer mind-numbingly realistic but has entered the realm of fantasy. Right.

  • Never watched “Girls” before and still don’t really know what it is about. BUT if Patrick Wilson is in it, I won’t miss an episode. I think I have to upgrade by FIOS but that is okay.

  • Watched the first Patrick Wilson “Joshua” episode tonight and had to watch it again a second time!!! He’s so easy on the eyes, and a great actor, but a totally unrealistic match for ” Hannah”…and kept expecting it to turn out to have been only a dream sequence!!!…(sadly ONLY in your dreams, Hannah!! )
