Gillian Jacobs is joining Girls for season 4. It was announced that the former Community actress will have a recurring role in the popular HBO series for this season. While it is far from a regular spot, it will hopefully lead to that beyond season 4 for her. Her character’s name will be Mimi-Rose Howard and she will have her very own episode to introduce her. So far no word on how many episodes she will be on or how her character will fit in.

This is great news for Gillian, as well as for HBO. She is a gifted actress who can lend her talent to a more successful series. Perhaps it will lead to even more for her, even though I slightly doubt it. That show already has their set of regulars and I am not sure if they want to disturb the careful balance they created.
