Elijah is back on Girls starting Sunday, and Andrew Rannells, who’ll appear in the remainder of season 3 and be a regular in season 4, couldn’t be happier about it. Elijah runs into Hannah (Lena Dunham) on the street in the Hamptons – or Hamptons adjacent – and after they make nice, she invites him and his friends (including Elijah’s new boyfriend played by Danny Strong) over to the house, where she and the girls fail to table their issues.
There may be some tense scenes in the episode, but when Rannells stopped by EW to chat, he was all laughs. Watch him share a story about a passerby telling him what Girls is really about below. Then, because we can’t get enough of him, watch the Tony nominee – who’ll play Carnegie Hall with Stephanie J. Block and the New York Pops on March 21 – confess his first celeb crush and go-to karaoke song in the EW Pop Culture Personality Test.
And bonus! Because it’s hilarious, listen to him visit EW Radio (SiriusXM 105) and chat with Entertainment Weekly’s Marc Snetiker about the Glee-related tweet that sent him into a rage and how he used to torture Josh Gad during The Book of Mormon. (NSFW language alert!)
Girls airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
