More Cast Shake-Ups for ‘Glee’ – Ryan Murphy Just Isn’t Cool, Man.

Ryan Murphy? We don't care for you.

 

Someone needs to stop Ryan Murphy.  A couple of weeks after Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam on the show, was demoted to a recurring role, Murphy announced that he was also axing the roles of Rachel, Finn and Kurt after the third season. Unfortunately for Chris Colfer, he had to find out about losing his job via Twitter.

Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter Wednesday that Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith‘s characters would be graduating at the end of the third season.

“We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.

Somebody’s pants are on fire.

Talking about his Emmy nod with Access Hollywood, Colfer revealed that he hadn’t heard about this final decision until later that day on Twitter.

Yeah I found out that they made that announcement,” he said. “I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year, I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever…I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon, but I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end.”

The 21-year-old does have Emmy nominations, a Golden Globe win under his belt, and a show for the Disney Channel in the works. Chris’ll be fine, but that’s not the best way to find out you won’t be having a job for much longer.

Fox had no comment, but there are rumors of a spin-off show with Rachel and Kurt set in NYC. While Murphy does have a point about not keeping them on longer than they should be on the show, you don’t fire or almost fire cast members before you know, telling them. This is the age of Twitter and blogs and don’t act like your actors don’t read stories about themselves. A winner from the Oxygen competition show ‘The Glee Project‘ will become apart of the cast but what this show doesn’t need is another member who doesn’t get any lines and can’t act or sing.

These dorks?

Seriously, have you seen these kids? Look at them!

Ryan Murphy Promises No Guest-Stars for Next Season of ‘Glee’

 

GLEE creator, Ryan Murphy

In more TV news, apparently the temperature in hell has dropped a number of degrees because Glee creator Ryan Murphy says not to guest stars for next season. Yes, you heard that right. No more PALTROW (THANK GOD!) and possibly no Anne Hathaway as Kurt’s lesbian aunt.

“Season 2 was definitely about bigger, better, flashier,” says Murphy. “And I loved so much about Season 2. I loved the Gwyneth story. I loved the bullying story. Chris Colfer and Darren Criss did an amazing job, as did Max Adler. But Season 3 we decided is going to be character, character, character.”

I feel like I’ve heard this all before.

Enjoy this cast while you can...

Murphy promised before the start of season 2 that there would more focus on Glee Club members like Mercedes and Tina, only to have the show shift into “The Kurt Show” with some other equally as annoying bit players.

“We have an amazing Mercedes story. We have a great Mike and Tina story. They’re fascinating. I love them as performers and it’s time they get their due,

Murphy was quoted, but I guess we’ll have to see how that all works out. If anyone is even still interested in this when the next season premieres. There will also be big changes for Sue Sylvester, who may get a love interest and finally stop trying to kill the kids.

The show gained a couple of new writers and although Murphy says he’s been planing the end of the series since the beginning, it’s already been said that much of Glee has been made up on the spot, literally.

One thing that is certain is that most of New Directions will be graduating. Interesting, considering that we don’t know how old most of them are or even what grade they’re in. New characters will be brought in, including one Warbler from the Oxygen reality show ‘The Glee Project‘. So this might be the beginning of the end for Glee, but I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing.
