Christopher Abbott abruptly leaves Lena Dunham's 'Girls'

Sorry, Charlie; Fans of Lena Dunham's show Girls will have to do without Marnie's boyfriend next season, because Christopher Abbott has left the show. Those two kids just got back together, too!

Abbott's rep told the New York Post's Page Six the 27-year-old actor is "grateful for the experience of collaborating with Lena, Judd (Apatow), and the entire Girls cast and crew, but right now he’s working on numerous other projects and has decided not to return to the show.”

The Post says Abbott and Dunham weren't seeing eye to eye, and that may have caused some problems. “They’ve just started work on Season 3, and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source told the paper. “He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map.” Well yeah, would you like it if some 26-year-old was bossing you around all the time?


Abbott was probably tired of all the not-questions constantly being posed. And the cocaine, too.
