Glee Stars Axed
Glee’s Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel, was among the
stars to be axed from the hit TV show, and he found out via Twitter – ouch!
Show creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that Colfer, Cory Monteith
(Finn) and even egomaniac protagonist Lea Michele (Rachel) will be among the
stars who ‘graduate’ from the high-school musical show at the end of the
upcoming third season. But it appears that Colfer, who just received an Emmy
nomination for his supporting role on Glee, didn’t know about Murphy’s plans.
Colfer says, “I looked on my Twitter replies and that’s
how I found out, I was like, ‘Oh, OK, I guess they announced something.’ We had
kind of known since the beginning, since we started the show, that these
characters were going to grow up and they were going to graduate eventually. I
didn’t think it was going to happen so soon necessarily...”
