Girls Andrew RannellsAndrew Rannells, Leaving Girls Behind




Andrew Rannells has had a great run, starring in two hit TV series, but you can’t be in two places at once for very long.




HuffPost TV’s Alex Moab Interview with Andrew Rannells on January 9th, 2013, explains his hasty exit from Season 2 of Girls, :

Was it scheduling that led to that?

“It was definitely … I’m the luckiest guy in the world that I had this opportunity to do both of these shows, and it does come down to a scheduling thing and a timing thing. One is shot in Los Angeles and one is here [in New York]. Unfortunately, that’s the way it works. I mean, if I could be in two places at once I obviously would have done it. And I’m so grateful to Jenni [Konner, "Girls" showrunner ] and to Lena and to Judd [Apatow, executive producer of "Girls"] that they were flexible enough to figure that out, with the timing of all of it. Because it’s a hard thing, to put together these shows with people’s schedules, and I’m very grateful for the fact that they were generous enough to work around that … because what an awesome show to be a part of.”

Is there a sadness that you only get four “Girls” episodes this season? 

“Totally. Oh my god, yeah. I was completely heartbroken … I mean, if I could be hanging out with Hannah all the time I would. So yes, I miss them terribly.”




Girls returns to HBO on Sunday, January 13th, 2013 at 9:/8: Central with episode 2×01, It’s About Time.


The New Normal returns to NBC on Tuesday, January 15th, 2013 at 9:30/8:30 Central with episode 1×13, Stay-At-Home-Dad.
