It’s old Brooklyn meets new Brooklyn on the final season of the HBO comedy Girls. Star and creator Lena Dunham has asked Brooklyn-born Irish American comedy legend Colin Quinn to appear as one of many guest stars on the show, which chronicles the lives of hip and aimless youth (who are not so young anymore) residing in what has become one of the world’s coolest and most expensive boroughs. Rita Wilson and Tracey Ullman will also be seen in the final season of Girls, which kicks off in mid-February. In April, you can also see Colin Quinn – who rose to fame on Saturday Night Live and recently appeared in Amy Schumer’s film Trainwreck – in the Netfilx comedy film Sandy Wexler. The film also stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Jennifer Hudson and Arsenio Hall. ♦
