Girls has found another guy for Lena Dunham. TV Line reports that Patrick Wilson has signed on to guest-star on the HBO comedy, where he'll play a doctor (as he did on the short-lived CBS drama A Gifted Man) who lives next door to Lena Dunham's character and soon becomes her potential love interest. If he's forced to go as shirtless as Dunham's last onscreen beau, Adam Driver, no one shall complain.
