Though HBO Golden Globe-winner 'Girls' courts plenty of controversy all on its own, series star Christopher Abbott made waves a few months ago with the news he would abruptly depart the series altogether, despite season 2 finale "Together" positioning his character Charlie for a larger role in season 3. Abbott was reported at the time to be feuding with creator and star Lena Dunham, though now the actor has finally gone on record to explain his departure.

'Girls' season 3 was thrown for a loop shortly after the airing of season 2 finale "Together," when series star Christopher Abbott abruptly quit the series after his character Charlie was positioned to take a more integral role. Now that 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'The Walking Dead' star Michael Zegen has joined 'Girls' season 3, however, speculation has begun that Zegen may replace Abbott in the role rather than portray an original character.

Though HBO's eternally buzzing Lena Dunham dramedy 'Girls' made little regular habit of cliffhangers, many found themselves perplexed by the the unusually optimistic ending of season 2 finale "Together," which largely reunited the season 1 couples. That ending was thrown into chaos by the sudden departure of actor Christopher Abbott, for whom the season 2 finale had suggested a larger role, but what do Abbott's castmates have to say about the exit?

Only a few weeks have passed since HBO's 'Girls' ended its second season on a curiously upbeat note, with several characters returning to the relationships they maintained at the outset of the series.

Director (and actor) Todd Louiso follows up 'Love Liza' and 'The Marc Pease Experience' with 'Hello I Must Be Going,' based on a script from first-time scribe Sarah Koskoff. The film follows Amy, a woman going through a divorce who is forced to move back in with her parents in suburban Connecticut, when she meets -- and falls for -- a much younger man. While the film comes close, but never quite manages, to punch you in the gut, Melanie Lynskey's portrayal of Amy is absolutely resonant.

'Two and a Half Men' fans know Melanie Lynskey as the wacky and sweetly diabolical Rose, who may or may not have been responsible for the untimely demise of Charlie Harper. But in the Sundance hit film 'Hello I Must Be Going,' the actress takes on a far different role -- that of a rather reluctant cougar.
