Community's cancellation has apparently freed up Gillian Jacobs for the cast of Girls for its fourth season. In 2015, you'll see her as Mimi-Rose Howard — in an episode appropriately called "Mimi-Rose." Just a few months ago, Jacobs and Lena Dunham's boyfriend, Bleachers' Jack Antonoff, co-starred in a short film (along with some of the cast of Parenthood and various Cool Kids) for Antonoff's sister's spring 2014 clothing line, CRUSH. Friends joining their friend's girlfriend's TV shows! This is how the world works.
