Lena Dunham Has Trouble Riding A Bike In Girls Season 4 Teaser

22 August 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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.

Lena Dunham has a bicycle mishap in 'Girls' season 4 teaser

22 August 2014 10:51 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"We're back in production." That phrase, coupled with some footage of Lena Dunham awkwardly falling off a bike bring season 4 of HBO "Girls" a little bit closer to reality. Dunham posted a 15-second version of a teaser on her Instagram:   And here's a much longer version, for those of you who have no plans for the next 31 seconds: What hilarious and hard-to-watch self-absored shenanigans will Hannah (Dunham), Marnie (Allison Williams), Jessa (Jemima Kirke), Shoshannah (Zosia Mamet) and Adam Driver (hey, he's not a girl!) get up to this time around? "Girls" returns in 2015. »

Lady Gaga, Chris Pratt, and more take the Als Ice Bucket Challenge

18 August 2014 5:26 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It’s not just your Facebook friends who are dousing themselves in freezing water to raise awareness and funds to fight Lou Gehrig’s Disease—celebrities from Chris Pratt to Lady Gaga are taking the Als Ice Bucket Challenge, too.

Over $15 million has been donated to the Als Association since the Ice Bucket Challenge began. But not all celebrity editions of the viral fundraising effort are the same: some are solemn, like J.J. Abrams’ show of solidarity, while others are full of energy, like Macklemore’s onstage ice shower. Here are the most notable:

In Defense of Allison Williams as Peter Pan

31 July 2014 1:05 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Let me start by admitting something that I’m not proud of.

When I first learned that Allison Williams had been cast as Peter Pan in NBC’s Peter Pan Live, I was gleeful. I absolutely could not wait to sit down in front of the television—with a platter of sad tacos—and savor the schadenfreude of seeing Marnie from Girls unleash her theater-geekdom on national television. And apparently, I’m not alone. Not everyone is happy about this news. Some have blamed the casting on nepotism. Critics like to suggest that Williams and other Girls stars are only »

Let's cast everyone from 'Girls' in NBC's 'Peter Pan'

30 July 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

That collective “whaaaaa?!” you heard around 9:40 a.m. this morning was the sound of the internet learning that NBC had cast Girls star Allison Williams as the title role in its upcoming production of Peter Pan Live.

On its surface, the decision seems, well, kind of bizarre. Think about it for a minute, though, and you may get where NBC is coming from: Williams is a practiced, experienced singer, and she’s also long harbored dreams of voicing a Disney character someday. (This Pan musical is different from Disney’s animated take, but it’s just as much of a family-friendly classic. »

Lena Dunham's 'Not That Kind of Tour' Attracts Big Talent

16 July 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Fasten your seat belts. Lena Dunham’s first book is just two-and-a-half months away. Before and after the release of her essay collection, “Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's ‘Learned,’” the writer-director-actress will take a cross-country promo tour. But she's making it more fun by pulling in some promo partners.  Appropriately titled “Not That Kind of Tour,” the three-week-long series will feature, besides the usual readings, discussions, Q & As and signed books, in EW’s words, an “absurdly amazing” set of talent. Besides "Girls" co-writer Jenni Konner and co-star Jemima Kirke, there's writer-director Miranda July, comedian Amy Schumer ("Inside Amy Schumer," Judd Apatow's upcoming "Trainwreck"), and actress-musician Carrie Brownstein ("Portlandia"). Creative types looking for exposure take note: Dunham has created an open call on her website, allowing talent to perform opening-act duties where »

'Girls' Spoilers: Scripts Leak Offers Details For Season 4

28 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Girls’ season four won’t be heading to HBO until January 2015, but already a script leak has provided some clues about what’s to come.

Girls Script Leak

At the end of season three, series protagonist Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) was presented with the opportunity of claiming a spot at a writing workshop at the University of Iowa. The question remained whether or not Hannah would uproot herself from Brooklyn and head to Iowa City.

From a snippet of a script spotted by peering Subway riders, it looks like Hannah will indeed choose to leave her friends and boyfriend Adam (Adam Driver) for the chance to get a leg up in her career.

“We all know in the Season 3 finale that Lena’s character gets into Iowa, but we didn’t know if she’d really go,” a source told Page Six. “In one of the scenes, Jessa (Jemima Kirke »

Andrew Rannells & Allison Williams On 'Girls' Set In New York City

Andrew Rannells and Allison Williams were spotted on the set of their hit HBO series Girls on Wednesday afternoon.

Ranells (Elijah) and Williams (Marnie) were accompanied on the New York City shoot by Adam Driver (Adam). Walking down the city street, Rannells wore a floral-patterned shirt under a teal suit, while Williams kept it simple in red pants and a navy blue knit sweater. Driver, meanwhile, was outfitted in a blue shirt, jeans and brown leather shoes.

Williams, following season three of Girls, is more than aware that her character has become something of a villain on the hit series. People like to hate on Marnie, and while Williams knows why, she maintains that as an actress she has to find a way to root for the young woman she portrays.
