HBO has a hit on their hands with their relatively new show “Girls,” but I’ve heard more than a few complaints about their lack of diversity in the cast. Looks like that’s about to finally change! Detail below.

Marisa Mendez

Girls is currently searching for a black actress to play Tako, the show’s first African American cast member.

Tako is a “tough, tiny lesbian” who makes soap and gets into fights. She wears a helmet and hates needy girls just as much as she hates her mother’s annoying messages left on her answering machine. This should be good.

The other good news is that this notice went out a year ago after the pilot was made, so these characters are bound to show up soon.
