Not that she wasn’t before. She is a Girl on Girls, tough. Okay let me start again- those eyes make us forget ourselves! As of today we can confirm that Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spiderman 2, Northanger Abbey) will be appearing in HBO’s GIRLS! Director Jesse Peretz announced the casting on twitter yesterday and The Wrap scooped it up:
Insanely happy to be directing the hilarious Richard E Grant and the luminous Felicity Jones today. #GIRLS

An HBO representative also confirmed that Richard E. Grant (“The Iron Lady,” “Gosford Park”) will make an appearance on the show for season 3.
Last day on @girlsHBO and grateful for the bounteous delights these young talents have bestowed upon my greying noggin here in New York!

Har har, Ms. Dunham. Though a Mad Men / Girls crossover pilot might… oh nevermind.
We’ll update with an official announcement about a Girls Season 3 premiere date when we have it. Our best guess would be “Q1 2014” which would put it right about where it was last year and the year before. Though the need for a rewrite after Christopher Abbot abruptly left the series could be hamming up the premiere schedule. Hopefully we get to see our Girls sooner rather than later.
We’ll let you know when a season 3 air date is official.
