Patrick Wilson Patrick Wilson

Patrick Wilson is picking up a stethoscope again and heading back to the small screen, but his latest role couldn't be further from A Gifted Man.

The actor, whose medical drama got the axe from CBS last month, will guest-star on the new season of Girls as a potential love interest for Hannah, TVLine reports.

Patrick Wilson confirms A Gifted Man cancellation: "I couldn't be happier"

Wilson, 38, will play a fortysomething doctor named Joshua who lives next door to where Hannah (Lena Dunham) works. Things officially don't look good for Hannah's Season 1 hook-up buddy-turned-boyfriend Adam (Adam Driver).

Wilson, known best for his roles in indie films like Little Children, wasn't too broken up when A Gifted Man — his first foray into network TV — was canceled. "Thanks for the AGM love...but now that it's 'official,' I couldn't be happier," he tweeted. "As good as it was (sometimes) it was not what I signed on for."

The second season of Girls is expected to premiere in January on HBO.

Do you think Wilson will make a good love interest for Hannah?
