According to Deadline, which first broke the news, Zegen may fill the void left by the sudden exit of Christopher Abbott (Charlie) — a departure his costar Allison Williams told TVLine had “a huge effect on our show and [on the character of] Marnie specifically.”

Zegen is also set to return to Boardwalk Empire this fall as Bugsy Siegel. His other credits include The Walking Dead and Rescue Me.

  • Ugh, Girls. 👎👎👎 I hope the season does poorly and HBO cancels it.

    • Okay, if it were on network TV, I would say that’s a valid opinion. But HBO has no set number of hours for shows. This is a fairly inexpensive, half-hour program on a network with a large amount of capital and space to spare. Why would you want it cancelled?

    • Or you could just not watch the show and not worry about it?

  • I hate it when actors abandon shows . I hope they kill off Charlie in a humiliating way to start the season. Ex. Charlie dies of Autoerotic Asphyxiation and season 3 starts off with his funeral.

  • Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you’re utilizing?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a
    honest price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!
