James Corden still hoping for role in Lena Dunham's 'Girls'

By
James Corden has revealed that he is still hoping to secure a role in Lena Dunham's award-winning comedy series Girls.

Dunham and co-writer Jenni Konner tried to get the Gavin & Stacey actor to appear in the first season of the HBO show, but he was unable to take part because of commitments with his Broadway show One Man, Two Guvnors.

However, Corden has claimed that he is still keen to hook up with the Golden Globe-winning writer in future episodes.

"I was approached to be in the first series but had to decline due to work commitments; I really hope it works out that I can be in the show in the future. I think working with Lena would be an amazing experience," Corden told Company magazine.

Writing about his love for the show, Corden added: "Girls is smart, funny, moving and completely original. Lena Dunham has written a show about real people in real situations, and the best thing about it is that real people love it.

"It also has - what I think to be - one of the best male performances ever by Adam, played by Adam Driver. His performance is so captivating and brilliant."

Writer Konner revealed last year that Corden had been approached to appear in the series, confessing that she was "obsessed" with Gavin & Stacey.

Season two of Girls airs on Sundays on HBO in the US and on Mondays on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
