‘Cute’ Boy Leaves ‘Girls’

Lena Dunham may not be everyone’s favorite 20-something. Christopher Abbott, who plays Charlie, or the “cutest boy” or “the one hot guy,” on Girls, is reportedly leaving the show after clashing with Dunham. His character Charlie, who dated Marnie on the show, rose to prominence in Season 2. Abbott’s rep released a statement: 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.” Here’s an idea: send the character to Staten Island, or what a boy in the show described as a “weird little island watching the city in the distance with this quiet rage burning in their hearts.”
