Following the departure of bearded seven Christopher Abbott from the cast of Girls, a show about white guilt and <3, comes news that acclaimed British-Swazi thespian with the most British-Swazi name ever Richard E(sterhuysen) Grant [pictured above using a phone without apps?] has landed a role in the season three premiere as ‘Jasper’.
Getting cast in @girlshbo by young Lena D,LegendInTheMaking,is about as kick-arse,swivel & yodel from the Alp tops,as it’s possible to get!

Yesterday brought with it word that Abbott – a poor man’s Jon Snow, a ‘brown’ coffee bean swept hastily under the rug at a Grumpy’s franchise – was departing the show over differences with deified creative Lena Dunham; he reportedly didn’t like the direction his character was heading in [up, up, all the way to the top] and has left to pursue other projects, ones that will be nowhere near as lucrative as Girls.
