Which ‘Mean Girls’ Star Will Join The Cast Of HBO’s Looking Next Season?

damianmeangirlssp1I mean it’s pretty obvious that it’s Damien, but we thought we’d go for suspense nonetheless.

Actor Daniel Franzese (seen on the right with a beard and Mama Ru), who since his role in the immortal Mean Girls has gone on to star in a number of indie films and shorts you’ve never heard of, has been confirmed to appear in season 2 of Looking in a multi-episode story arc.

Daniel will play Eddie, a “new love interest who works in the San Francisco nonprofit community.”

No word on who he’ll be getting lovey dovey with, but if we had to guess we’d say Augusten.

He posted this proof on Instagram:

Other characters confirmed to be popping up in the Looking universe next season:

“Malik, an African-American staffer in the mayor’s office; Sammie, a female-to-male transgender who lives at the shelter where Agustín gets a job; and Brady, Richie’s new redheaded, slightly punk beau.”

Casting for these roles hasn’t been announced, but that certainly didn’t stop us from guessing.

And while we’re guessing, here’s four things we want to see from season 2 (and one thing we definitely don’t).

    There is too much good shit on television now to even consider drinking the “Jonathan Groff really is interesting kool-aid”. SomeONE on the Looking production team is clearly infatuated with Groff, to the point where that person can’t see that Groff’s character on Looking isn’t working. The upshot though is that with all of these new characters, there has to resultingly be less screen time devoted to Groff.

    ^^^ @MarionPaige, are you nuts? “Jonathan Groff’s character isn’t working?” I don’t know what rock you’ve been under, but the show has been a huge hit, and Groff’s character has clearly been a central part of that success. Personally, I like all the characters, and I’m not bitter about JG and his charm. ;-)
