Generation - Lena Dunham Series Adds Seven Recurring To Cast


Anthony Keyvan (Alexa & Katie), Diego Josef (Goliath), J. August Richards (Council of Dads), John Ross Bowie (Speechless), Mary Birdsong (Succession), Patricia De Leon (Mayans M.C.) and Sydney Mae Diaz (High Fidelity) are set for recurring roles on HBO Max’s Lena Dunham-produced half-hour dramedy, Generation.

Created by Zelda Barnz and her father Daniel Barnz, who also directs, Generation is a dark yet playful half-hour following a group of high school students whose exploration of modern sexuality (devices and all) tests deeply entrenched beliefs about life, love and the nature of family in their conservative community.

Keyvan plays Pablo, Riley’s (Wonders) ex-hookup buddy/classmate. Pablo is an attractive “bad boy” and a man of few words.

Josef plays Cooper. At first glance, Cooper gives you major jock Junior Conservative Club vibes, but underneath he’s a sweet and genuine kid who’s trying to understand and connect with his transgender brother.

Richards plays Joe, Arianna’s (Alexander) dad, married to Patrick (Bowie). Joe holds petty grudges but is a deeply caring father and husband.

Bowie’s Patrick is Arianna’s (Alexander) dad, a former “straight” evangelical who is now married to Joe (Richards).

Birdsong plays Mrs. Culpepper, a former girl scout, current leader of the GSA. She’s enthusiastic, well-intentioned, and maybe just a touch too earnest.

De Leon plays Sela, Greta’s (Sanchez) mom, old-school to the core, a God-fearing woman who honors tradition.

Diaz plays J, the stoner philosopher of the group with a lofty mindset and obsession with roof topping and the tantra.
