Emily Ratajkowski to join Lena Dunham's Netflix series 'Too Much'

Emily Ratajkowski is reportedly wrapping up talks to join the cast of Lena Dunham‘s upcoming Netflix comedy series Too Much, alongside lead Will Sharpe and Megan Statler.

The series follows Jessica (Statler), as she navigates a breakup and isolates herself from the people closest to her.

Described a New York workaholic, when she realises how much the city reminds her of her own bad choices, she decides to up and leave for London.

Despite plans to live in total solitude like a Brontë sister, she meets Felix (Sharpe), and her connection to him proves to be yet another hurdle.

Although Netflix declined to confirm to Variety, sources have said Ratajkowski will play Felix’s ex-girlfriend Polly.

Having had previous roles in Gone Girl and I Feel Pretty, Ratajkowski told the LA Times she was quitting acting in 2023, not wanting to make herself “digestible” to men in Hollywood.

“I didn’t feel like, ‘Oh, I’m an artist performing and this is my outlet,'” she said. “I felt like a piece of meat who people were judging, saying, ‘Does she have anything else other than her [breasts]?'”

Too Much will be written and directed by Dunham, with original music from her husband Luis Felber. Both will executive produce the ten-episode series.
