Wilson, who most recently played The Good Wife’s polished Viola, will appear in the Emmy-nominated dramedy’s upcoming season as mom to Marnie (played by Allison Williams).

The show, whose creator once told TVLine she likes to “pretend we’re keeping state secrets” when it comes to casting info, didn’t release any additional details. That said, how much you wanna bet uptight Marnie didn’t fall far from the Type-A tree?

Even less is known about the part played by Quinn, whose one-man show Long Story Short aired on the cable net last year. Though particulars of his guest-starring role are officially under wraps, the comedian tweeted Wednesday, “Excited about my ‘shoot’ today for ‘Girls.’ Looking forward to impressing them with my positive outlook and my professional demeanor.” Girls executive producer Judd Apatow later posted a photo of Quinn on set.

Wilson and Quinn join previously revealed Season 2 guest stars Donald Glover and Patrick Wilson.

Girls will return for its sophomore season in January.

  • “The HBO hit” isn’t that pushing it a bit? I mean it may do well critically, but the show is no hit by any means.
