It didn’t take long for Gillian Jacobs to find a new gig following the cancellation of NBC’s “Community.
It's true! The super-special @GillianJacobs has joined us for Girls season 4. We are pretty lucky.

Jacobs is the first castmember from “Community” to land a major role since the comedy’s cancellation earlier this month. She is not, however, the first one from the show to appear on “Girls” — Donald Glover had a part in season two as a boyfriend of Dunham’s character.
While “Community” fans may fret about what this means about the possible revival of the comedy somewhere other than the Peacock, plenty of castmembers on the show have juggled multiple jobs while “Community” was running, including Alison Brie, who has a role on “Mad Men” as well.
The fourth season of “Girls” is set to premiere on HBO in early 2015.
