Don’t worry, “Girls” fans. Adam Sackler is not going anywhere despite his off-screen portrayer Adam Driver landing a huge role in “Star Wars: Episode VII” this morning, and despite the fact that the two productions are filming at the same time – as in, right now. HBO tells Buzzfeed that Driver “is still a part of this show.” This is really not a surprise, especially since Driver had already been pictured filming scenes with Lena Dunham just a couple of weeks ago for the show’s 4th season.

John Boyega Sought for ‘Terminator: Genesis’
