'Girls' Star Andrew Rannells to Become Series Regular in Season 4


Andrew Rannells as Elijah on Girls

It looks as if 'Girls' is gearing to add another cast member to their inner circle. According to Deadline, HBO has decided to bump Andrew Rannells to a series regular if the show gets picked up for a fourth season. And given the continued popularity of the show, that seems highly likely!

The Tony-nominated actor is already set to reprise his role as Elijah, Hannah’s (Lena Dunham) gay ex-boyfriend on the show's upcoming third season, so we'll definitely be seeing more of him sooner rather than later. Rannells has only appeared in eight episodes of the first two seasons, which is just not nearly enough. We need more Elijah and thankfully the network is answering our pleas.

Rannells became a much bigger blip on the public's radar during his breakout role as Elder Price in the 2011 Broadway musical 'The Book of Mormon,' and he's continued to shine ever since. Perhaps we'll even get to hear him stretch those vocal chops of his once again on 'Girls,' if we're lucky. (Do you hear that, writers?) The actor also recently starred on the Ali Adler/Ryan Murphy comedy 'The New Normal' on NBC, which was cancelled way before its time (RIP).

So what do you think of Rannells' little impending promotion? Are you excited to see more of the actor on the small screen? Let us know your thoughts and feelings in the comments below!
