News Roundup: Ryan Murphy Confirms Chord Overstreet Will Not Play Kurt's Boyfriend, Paris Hilton Gets a New Show and More

Ryan MurphyRyan Murphy finally put an end to the speculation about Kurt's new boyfriend on 'Glee' -- well, sort of.

We finally know once and for all that new cast member Chord Overstreet will NOT be the lucky guy. Show creator Ryan Murphy told E! Online that "It's definitely not Chord." But it could be the just-cast character that actor Darren Criss will play. Or not. "The new character is certainly an option. I'm not sure how soon I want to [reveal] that information because it's such a big storyline of the year -- I want there to be some surprises."

However, judging from Murphy's description of the character, we're guessing the odds of him being the one are high. "Darren has a major, major arc," he said. "He sort of becomes Kurt's mentor and then maybe love-he had to leave his own school because of bullying and goes to an all-boys academy and finds acceptance because that school has a no-bullying, zero-tolerance policy. So Kurt really admires him and respects him. He plays someone who's one year older than Chris' character, so he's the old pro."
