Alex Karpovsky has become a household name as one of the stars of HBO’s critically acclaimed award winning hit show “Girls”, playing the unique personality Ray Ploshansky, the boyfriend of Zosia Mamet’s nervous naif Shoshanna as well as playing Lena Dunham’s love interest in her breakout film Tiny Furniture. What most people may not know though, is that he is also a talented writer and director bring dubbed the “Male Lena Dunham”. The actor has two movies debuting at the Tribeca Film Festival that he co-wrote, directed and starred in, Rubberneck and Red Flag. In Rubberneck, he plays a technician working in a laboratory who becomes infatuated with a co-worker. His unreciprocated advances become increasingly delusional and dangerous. In Red Flag, he plays “Alex Karpovsky” (How great is that?), an Indie Triple Threat (Actor, Director, and Writer) traveling the country promoting his new movie.
