I heard a rumor that the reason Christopher Abbott left Girls is because he wasn’t happy with the way things were going. As we’ve been able to get a small, very-poorly written section of next season’s script where it seems Lena Dunham hired the same Sorority Girl from today’s email to join the cast, this choice might shed light on his departure.
INT. – Hannah’s Apartment – Night
Hannah is on the floor, still wearing her oversized brown t-shirt from last season.
SORORITY GIRL, Hannah’s new roommate, walks into the apartment.
(without getting up)
Hey. I’ve been lying here all day in an existential crisis.
(rolls her eyes)
Ugh, punch yourself right now so I don’t have to find you in your room later to do it myself.
But this time it’s really serious.
(rolls over to look at SORORITY GIRL)
I feel like my voice isn’t being heard so why should I even be speaking?
(Sorority girl is clearly annoyed Hannah hasn’t gotten up.)
Hannah, I’m going to cunt punt you if you don’t get the fuck up.
(Hannah rolls away from Sorority Girl.)
I’ll just roll to my room.
(starts to fill with rage)
Are you fucking retarded? I swear to fucking god if I see you being a boner at tonight’s event, I will tell you to leave even if you’re sober.
I don’t really even want to go. Lately I don’t feel like going anywhere.
(giving up on Hannah)
Oh go fuck yourself.
With this poorly written script and bizzarre casting choice, it’s really no surprise Christopher left.
