Well, it’s official, boys and Girls… Andrew Rannells will be leaving behind Lena Dunham and Co. after the first four episodes of Girls’ second season. Rannells has a starring role on The New Normal, of course, citing time constraints as his reason for exiting. On his unfortunate departure, Rannells told HuffPost TV:
“I’m the luckiest guy in the world that I had this opportunity to do both of these shows, and it does come down to a scheduling thing and a timing thing. One is shot in Los Angeles and one is here [in New York]. Unfortunately, that’s the way it works. I mean, if I could be in two places at once I obviously would have done it. And I’m so grateful to Jenni [Konner, "Girls" showrunner ] and to Lena and to Judd [Apatow, executive producer of "Girls"] that they were flexible enough to figure that out, with the timing of all of it. Because it’s a hard thing, to put together these shows with people’s schedules, and I’m very grateful for the fact that they were generous enough to work around that … because what an awesome show to be a part of…I mean, if I could be hanging out with Hannah all the time I would. So yes, I miss them terribly.”
Will you Girls fans miss Hannah Horvath’s gay ex-boyfriend, Elijah?
