MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) — Adam Driver says he nearly passed up a chance for a role in the HBO series “Girls.” The actor from Mishawaka was in the middle of a play at the time wasn’t interested in television at the time.

Driver, however, knew HBO was different after worked on the cable network’s “You Don’t Know Jack,” so he decided to go for it. It’s worked out pretty well for him. The 2001 Mishawaka High School graduate was nominated last month for an Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series.

He tells the South Bend Tribune (http://bit.ly/13yh7vW ) his chemistry with the show’s creator, producer and lead actress Lena Dunham, also made the show attractive. He says her palpable personality made it easy to join the cast.
