Both of these women are remarkably talented and unbelievably hilarious; it's wonderful to see them cast in such a critically-acclaimed and widely watched (and feverishly discussed) show — plus, it's refreshing and encouraging to see Lena Dunham working to promote more diverse representation, instead of clinging to her old "but my experience is white experience!" excuse. Only time will tell whether these character arcs will be longer — and more thoughtful and in-depth — than Glover's.
