Guess Who Just Nabbed A Role On Girls?
It’s always fun to see crossovers between characters from one smash-hit TV show to another, especially when said character is taken completely out of his/her element to fit in with a new cast. As a show that’s no stranger to celebrity cameos (ranging from Jenna Lyons to Rita Wilson and Donald Glover to Jenny Slate), HBO’s Girls has tapped a new guest star: Natasha Lyonne, who plays Nicky in Orange Is the New Black.
While HBO is keeping mum on any details regarding Lyonne’s character, we do know that she’ll be named “Rickey.” That’s not much to go off of, but hey, it’s something.
Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Girls-OITNB crossover. Last season, actress Danielle Brooks—who plays crowd favorite Taystee on the latter Netflix series—made an appearance as a closeted lesbian in rehab with Jessa.
The union between the two shows is no surprise, really. In September, Girls’ creator Lena Dunham told Access Hollywood: “I recently watched all of Orange Is the New Black, which I adore. It’s a very sexy, cool, smart show that’s great for women.”
Could Uzo Aduba (i.e. OITNB’s Crazy Eyes) be next? One can only hope.
