One guy's out on 'Girls'

Despite its title, HBO's "Girls" is as much about the coming-of-age of its male characters as it is about the 20-something women at the heart of the story.

But according to reports, the next season of creator and star Lena Dunham's award-winning comedy will be short a guy: Chris Abbott, who portrayed the sensitive Charlie.

The character started out the series as Marnie's (Allison Williams) sap of a soon-to-be-ex boyfriend, but by the second season was growing into his own as he found success with a smartphone app. The second season finale, which just aired March 17, concluded with Charlie and Marnie reconciling and getting back together.

HBO renewed "Girls," which Dunham writes and produces along with Judd Apatow and Jenni Konner, for a third season in January. Yet it appears fans won't get to see what becomes of Marnie and Charlie's renewed love.

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

    Chris Abbott is great on "Girls"! I am really sad to see him go, especially with him and Marnie just getting back together. That was so touching. And now you're letting him go. I don't know what you writers are doing, but please don't mess with the formula. There were several episodes without Adam Driver, who I think is fantastic. And then that one episode with the guy from Phanton of the Opera having a fling with Hannah. Give me a break. I could barely stand to watch that one.

    I just got paid $6784 working off my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin toddlers, made over $9k her first month and she convinced me to try. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Here's what I do,, Wow55.com

      I just got paid $6784 jerking off in front of my laptop this month. And if you think that's cool, my divorced friend has twin towers, so to speak (major league yabbos), made over $9k her first month and she convinced me to try. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. Here's what I do,, BowWow69.com
