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?
