An Answer to Girls’ Lack of DiversityPosted: May 10, 2012
There has been much discussion of late about the lack of diversity on the new HBO series Girls. Lena Dunham, the show’s writer and star, has stated that she intends to increase diversity in future seasons.
To help Dunham, we at The New Enthusiast have put our heads together to nominate an individual we believe is ideally suited to rescue Girls from its diversity desert.
Two words: Lando Calrissian.
That’s right. Bring back Billy Dee Williams to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian, administrator of Cloud City from The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
Calrissian is a curious amalgam of Armenian and African and, of course, none of either because he’s from another universe. The depths of this diversity are breathtaking.
Thank us later, Lena Dunham.
