Roberta Colindrez (Girls) has joined the cast of Jill Soloway’s Amazon comedy pilot I Love Dick. Written by playwright Sarah Gubbins based on Chris Kraus’ influential and somewhat controversial 1997 novel, I Love Dick is set in a colorful academic community in Marfa, Texas. It centers on a struggling married couple, Chris and Sylvere, and their mutual obsession with Dick, an off-putting but charismatic professor. Told in Rashomon-style shifts of POV, I Love Dick charts the unraveling of a marriage, the awakening of an artist and the reluctant deification of a man named Dick. Colindrez will play Devon, a butch cowboy and amateur playwright who works as groundskeeper on the property Chris and Sylvere are renting in Marfa. She is instantly drawn to Chris, but she’s waiting for the couple to come to some sort of agreement before she makes her move. Colindrez, repped by Stone Manners Salners Agency and manager Davien Littlefield, recurred on Girls and currently stars in the Tony-winning Broadway musical Fun Home.

Great mention of a scene featuring Frank Harts: “…The greatest passages come from Paterson’s driving scenes, when he eavesdrops on random exchanges about topics ranging from anarchy to social outings that wouldn’t feel out of in his vignette-driven ‘Coffee and Cigarettes…'”
