Exclusive: Patrick Wilson Hooks Up With Girls

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?

    When will season two premiere? Spring 2013?

  2. JC says:

    As long as he does nudity, I don’t care.

  3. me says:

    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.

  4. juliab says:

    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.

  5. Susan says:

    Psyched!!! Love the show already and Patrick Wilson is a great actor!

  6. apple says:

    Hannah is SO out of his league but whatever ahahahahah

  7. Becks says:

    Thank you for this headline. When read out of context…lol

  8. chloe says:

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

  9. Lauren says:

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

  10. Mermel Mom says:

    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.

  11. dude says:

    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.

    • s says:

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

    • Wayne says:

      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.

  12. Rolfe says:

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

  13. Sean says:

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

  14. Fritanga says:

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

  15. Judy says:

    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.

  16. Jennifer says:

    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!! )
