Lizzy Caplan, who won over critics “Party Down” and my boner in “True Blood,” is now developing a comedy for HBO that looks to be her first major starring role.
HBO is teaming with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez and actress Lizzy Caplan to develop a comedy series project based on actress/writer Julie Klausner’s memoir I Don’t Care About Your Band…
The book, a gritty but comedic look at what it’s like to navigate the dating world in your 20s, chronicles Klausner’s experiences from her preadolescent sexual awakenings through the unsavory details of sleeping with a gallery of losers throughout her 20s. [Deadline]
In case you’ve got a scoreboard keeping track of this at home, Caplan’s rise to starring in an HBO series officially drops Lindsay Lohan to fourth place in the category of “Success of young actresses from Mean Girls” (Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried still have the top two spots).
Lacey Chabert, meanwhile, is a tampon commercial away from bumping Lohan to fifth. Ladies, let that be a reminder to you: leave the cocaine abuse to strippers and Lawrence Taylor.
