We know that Lena Dunham is returning to our screens when the fourth season of ‘Girls’ takes its bow on HBO this weekend, but NYC is not the only place she’ll be appearing this year. Entertainment Weekly has revealed that she’ll also be seen in Springfield when she makes a guest appearance on ‘The Simpsons’.

The 28 year old actress and writer won’t be appearing as herself, or her ‘Girls’ character Hannah, however. She’ll be voicing a pharmacist called Candace who becomes romantically linked with Homer when he becomes diagnosed with narcolepsy, which makes him continually fall asleep.

'Girls' Producers Defend Nudity At TCA Panel


Lena Dunham Girls

One member of the press will definitely not be interviewing Lena Dunham or the Girls producers again anytime soon. The Girls creator was faced with some impertinent questions about her frequent appearances in the nude during the show.

During a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour on Thursday (9th January), a reporter questioned Dunham her decision to appear nude on the show. The reporter questioned, according to The Huffington Post, the purpose of nudity in the show. He said "I don't get the purpose of all the nudity on the show, by [Dunham] in particular. I feel like I'm walking into a trap where you go, 'Nobody complains about all the nudity on Game of Thrones, but I get why they do it. They do it to be salacious and titillate people. And your character is often nude at random times for no reason."

Girls Season 2: Has Lena Dunham Included One Black Character To Appease Her Critics?


Lena Dunham Girls

Girls and Lena Dunham have been a revelation for the small screen. A kind of Sex and The City for 'real' woman (although the topic of 'men' comes up nearly as much), Girls has been critically acclaimed, and has thrust Dunham into the comedy limelight. 

If there were one criticism of Girls, it would be Dunham's rather Caucasian depiction of one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world: New York. With such a range of colour and culture in the Big Apple, it's a surprise the show's characters didn't represent the true essence of the city. Still, the actor, writer and director was honest enough to admit that Girls was perhaps a little too white, and vowed to introduce a more multicultural aspect. There were those, of course, who saw introducing more diverse characters for the sake of it as offensive in itself, but most praised the show for being willing to accept their faux pas and adjust accordingly.

However, as Eric Deggans, Tampa Bay Times TV/Media Critic notes, "minutes into Girls' Sunday return, self-described black nerd Donald Glover (NBC's Community)pops up as new beau to Dunham's Hannah Horvath." At the end of the episode, "he's gone; split with Hannah after he criticizes one of her essays and she picks a fight over his political beliefs, angrily spitting a Missy Elliot lyric at him while he's complaining about white women who fetishize dating black men."
