'Girls' Season 3 finds a new guy in 'Boardwalk Empire' star

michael-zegen-girls-gi.jpgAfter the surprising departure of Christopher Abbott prior to the start Season 3, Lena Dunham and "Girls" have been on the hunt for some fresh male blood for the series.

Deadline reports that the HBO comedy has added Michael Zegen, who recurs as Bugsy Siegel on the network's "Boardwalk Empire," to the cast. Details surrounding Zegen's character and the number of episodes he'll appear in aren't yet available, but the website claims he may "fill the void" left by Abbott's departure. (Translation? A possible love interest for Allison Williams' Marnie.)

Zegen, who will also return to "Boardwalk Empire" this fall, recently appeared in Noah Baumbach's "Frances Ha" alongside fellow "Girls" guy Adam Driver. He's also previously recurred on "The Walking Dead," "Rescue Me" and "How To Make It In America."
