Charlie Quit ‘Girls’

Chris Abbott, Charlie on the show Girls, has left the HBO series over creative differences. Those creative differences being he thinks Lena Dunham is a total b*tch.

But sources told Page Six that Abbott and Dunham began butting heads as the critical-darling series entered production again. “They’ve just started work on Season 3, and Chris is at odds with Lena,” a source said. “He didn’t like the direction things are going in, which seems a bit odd since the show put him on the map.” Abbott’s rep confirmed his departure, telling us: “[Chris] 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.”

Outside of Girls no one has heard of Chris Abbott so it’s a little odd he’d leave the surprisingly popular show right when they would start focusing on his character again. It’s like quitting the team right after you make it off the bench because you don’t like the coach telling you to pass the ball all the time.
