Earlier today, Daily Mail published a serie of paparazzi pictures with Zach and HBO’s Girls star Lena Dunham on set in Brooklin. No one has heard anything about it, but after the photos, HBO has confirmed that he will guest-star on season 4.
TV Line reported that his participation is an one-off stint.
Season 3 of Girls ended with Dunham’s Hannah Horvath getting accepted to the prestigous Iowa Writers’ Workshop — but the fact that Dunham and Quinto filmed their scene in the hipster enclave of Bushwick indicates at least some of the season will take place in New York.
The presence of a large gray trash can and a clear plastic bag of recycled beverage cans in the backdrop of the photo indicates that perhaps Hannah is exploring her altruistic side through some volunteer work. Either that, or she’s engaged in some court-ordered community service.
A recent photoshoot made when Zach was in Pittsburgh has now been added to the gallery:

Zach shared with us today on his twitter an interview he did with The Talks while still in Berlin, in which he talks about religion, his trip to Peru, and other personal experiences.
You also demonstrated that kind of disregard for other people’s opinion when you came out as openly gay. When you did that, you had no idea what might happen as a result.
But I had reached a point in my own life and in my own journey where measuring against other people’s expectations or judgments wasn’t of any interest to me anymore. It had been for years before and that is why it took me a long time to get there, but I can’t imagine the amount of energy and effort that would have to go into maintaining the lie of being who you’re not. And maybe that means I have a different journey, but it’s just not interesting to me to live any other way. I also feel like things are changing so radically and so quickly, that I wanted to be a part of that change and stand up and be counted. Especially since I have the chance to really affect other people’s lives in a positive way.
And has that been your experience?
I can’t tell you how many young people I’ve either met or gotten letters from that have explicitly shared with me the difference that it made to them. That’s something that I can leave behind and know that is a part of the positive impact that I’ve been able to have. It doesn’t add up to anything if you just keep it to yourself. I take very seriously the distress and the pain of the young people in the world that are not met with the kind of support and acceptance that I’ve been met with in my life. I want to try to do what I can to help them and to let them know that it will pass and it will change and – as cliché as it’s become – it will get better.
It’s really (another) great interview, and you can read more on The Talks website.
