It's not like Girls isn't full of all sorts of nakedness. But is Zachary Quinto going to stripping down for his guest gig on the HBO series? It sure sounds like it. "I mean, it's Girls, so you can assume what you will," Dunham said on the Emmys red carpet when I asked about the possibility of the Star Trek hottie showing some skin. "I also want to see him naked—that's all you need to know for now." Talk about a tease! "I can tell you nothing except that he is as amazing onscreen as he is off," Dunham said of Quinto. "He is so much fun to work with and the minute that camera is on he's an actor with such a gift and such a gift for »

Lena Dunham is headed for a wipeout.
The Girls star on Friday shared a first look at her HBO comedy’s upcoming fourth season, slated to premiere in early 2015. The video, uploaded to Dunham’s Instagram account, showcases Hannah Horvath’s less-than-graceful nature, as a relaxing bike ride quickly devolves into yet another embarrassing mess.
Watch Dunham’s sneak peek below, then drop a comment with your hopes for Girls‘ fourth season. »
Whether you like them or not, Lena Dunham and company are currently prepping for the upcoming fourth season of their HBO comedy series Girls. Today, the network released the first teaser for the season, which will arrive next year, though fans will likely be a little disappointed with the dearth of footage.
Essentially, the clip just shows creator/actor/writer/director Dunham, possibly in character as Hannah Horvath, riding her bike and taking a bit of a tumble. Because even though Hannah takes risks and ventures out into the world, it wouldn’t be Girls if she didn’t crash and burn every so often.
Honestly, the clip is more of a reminder to viewers that Girls is still kicking than anything else. It’s also slightly dishonest – production on the fourth season officially wrapped last week, so the show is actually in post-production right now.

It’s the voice. That mellifluous, basso profundo, deep down rumbling that issues words, sentences, entire speeches with such authority, sincerity and such relish that we cannot but pay attention. We hang on every word because we hear the intelligence, the humor, the irony and most of all the joy of someone who is in love; with life, with his partner, with acting, with being in the world and a part of human society, with the absolute joy of living. That voice is as recognizable and distinctive as Orson Welles, John Huston, Ed Begley or Roger Corman, that voice takes us by the hand and reveals to us a life lived full out, in every sense of the word; complicated, tragic, loving, generous and most of all fun.
