A day after the Girls season finale on HBO, Central Casting wasted no time in the search for extras. The job posting was listed yesterday afternoon, calling for an interesting collection of stereotypes, presumably for next season. It appears the related filming is set to transpire between April 2 and April 23.

That said, let’s have a gander at what (or who) team Lena Dunham is seeking. Gotta love the request for a slovenly, balding dude with a beer gut.

  • Male to portray ages 30-38 patient with tattoos and ear spacers.
  • Male to portray caucasian heavy set ages 18-25 patient.
  • Male to portray African American patient ages 37-40 well dressed business man with high end suits and/or business casual.
  • Female to portray Caucasian / quiet / overdone hair styled patient ages 60-70. Character is really concerned about her hair.
  • Females to portray an alcoholic with teased hair.
  • Males to portray a Caucasian slovenly, beer gut, balding male.
  • Females to portray chainsmoking nurse.
  • Males to portray 38-42 year old Latin Maintenance worker type.
  • Females to portray 38-42 year old Latin Social Worker type.

Do you think Girls deserves the endless showers of media praise?
