by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 1st 2011 11:00AM
When we heard that 'Glee' was celebrating its upcoming 300th musical number with a special diva mash-up, we could hardly contain our excitement. We all have our own personal favorite numbers from the show, but seeing what's to come between now and milestone number 300? Well, there are just too many musical possibilities there not to get our minds into full casting mode.

Chris Colfer Tells Leno That He's Staying With 'Glee' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 8th 2011 3:59AM
Chris Colfer, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno'Chris Colfer admitted to becoming quite deft at avoiding the question about what's going on with his character on 'Glee.' He even tried to do it again when Jay Leno asked him the question on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), but it didn't work out so well.

"You guys were leaving, and then no you're getting a TV spinoff, and then you're staying. So what's happening?" Leno asked.

"The truth is people forget that 'Glee' is still a TV show," Colfer said, immediately launching into a deflection from the point. He stayed on this topic for awhile. "We just have to survive Season 3 first before we can worry about it," he said, and then immediately dropped the teaser, "Little did I know that I would be in the hospital, literally the first week back filming."

Ryan Murphy Blames Media for 'Glee' Cast Drama, Puts Spin-Off on Hold

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 29th 2011 11:10AM
Ryan Murphy is doing quite a bit of backpedaling following conflicting interviews given by himself and co-executive producer Brad Falchuk about the fate of a few graduating 'Glee' characters.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy said the characters played by Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be graduating from McKinley High School in 2012. While it's been no secret that some 'Glee' characters would graduate next year -- reports date back to December 2010 -- some of the actors claimed ignorance to the news. Colfer said he found out via Twitter, causing a media frenzy.

Glee Spin-Off News
'Glee' co-creator Brad Falchuk appeared at Comic-Con and tried to put out the fire by claiming the characters are graduating, but they're not necessarily leaving the series.

"It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. ... They are not done with the show after this season," Falchuk said.

'Glee' Co-Creator Brad Falchuk Says Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are Staying With the Show

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 25th 2011 7:30AM
'Glee' castIs there a little discord over in the 'Glee' camp? Last month Ryan Murphy said that several major 'Glee' cast members would be leaving the show at the end of Season 3. Their characters would graduate McKinley High and be replaced by new characters, just like in a real high school.

Makes sense, right? Well, yes and no. First, some of the actors concerned -- who are still under contract with the series -- expressed surprise at the news, with Chris Colfer saying that he'd found out via Twitter.

Then, last week Amber Riley said that the actors are all fine with the decision, and Lea Michele tweeted that "It's all part of the plan and it's all good."

Now, however, has Murphy's co-creator Brad Falchuk tossed a wrench into the works?

He told a Comic-Con audience that the characters are graduating, but they're not leaving the show: "It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. ... They are not done with the show after this season."

Oh, but he still had bad news for Sam fans: Chord Overstreet is done with the show.

Chris Colfer Gets a Book Deal

by PopEater Staff, posted Jun 9th 2011 11:30AM
Chris ColferJust call Chris Colfer a jack of all trades. The breakout 'Glee' star who sang, danced, and acted his way to a Golden Globe win last year can now add "author" to his resume.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Colfer, 21, recently signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

The first book, titled 'The Land of Stories,' follows the adventures of a set of twins and will combine fairytales into a modern setting. The book, which targets young readers ages 8 to 12, will be released next summer. A second, yet-to-be-titled book will follow.

"When I was 10 years old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance," Colfer said in a statement Wednesday. "This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I'm excited and nervous to share it."

Chris Colfer on 'Glee,' His Many Projects & How His Sister Keeps Him Humble

by Joel Keller, posted May 17th 2011 10:00AM
Chris Colfer at the Time 100 galaIf you weren't aware of who Chris Colfer was a year ago, you probably know who he is now. He won a Golden Globe for his role as Kurt Hummel on the smash FOX hit 'Glee,' and Kurt has been featured prominently in a storyline about bullying this season.

But that's not all; Colfer also signed a deal to write a live-action pilot for the Disney Channel called 'The Little Leftover Witch,' and 'Struck By Lightning,' a movie based on his screenplay, is going into pre-production with Colfer as one of the stars. Oh, and he also made the Time 100 list of most influential people. Again, not a bad year for a guy who won't turn 21 until next week.

So between the show, whose New York finale just finished shooting last week, the 'Glee' summer tour, the many interviews he's doing, and his multiple projects, you can understand why it might take some time to pin him down. But pin him down we did, for a 20-minute, jam-packed interview about 'Glee,' what keeps him humble, and where he's going to find the time to do all this stuff.

'Glee' Star Max Adler On Having to Bully His Costar Friends, Singing & 'Global Guts'

by Jean Bentley, posted Apr 26th 2011 9:00AM
Max Adler, GleeLet it be known: In real life, Max Adler and Chris Colfer are friends.

But on 'Glee,' Adler plays the closeted bully who tortured Colfer's Kurt with such hurtful homophobic slurs that the high school sophomore had to transfer to a private all-boys academy. On Tuesday's super-sized episode, though, Kurt returns to McKinley High and some of the pair's tension comes to a head.

After last weekend's prom spoiler leak, Adler was especially tight-lipped about what's coming up for Karofsky, but the admitted Lady Gaga fan did his best to share a little about tonight's sure-to-be-epic 90-minute 'Born This Way' episode.

"It's going to be, I'm going to say, one of the best episodes," he told AOL TV last week. "Right [up there with] the Super Bowl episode. The whole message is tackling everyone's insecurities as far as their sexuality, physical appearance or inability to do something, and it makes them realize over the course of the episode that the thing they're most insecure about is really the thing that makes them the most special and makes them stand out from the crowd. It's a really important message for people to see."

Glee, Born This Way, Lady GagaAfter what seems like months of hype (and some major spoilers), the super-sized self-acceptance-themed episode of 'Glee' is almost here. With it comes the Gleek-y version of Lady Gaga's "be yourself" anthem, 'Born This Way.'

Though the episode doesn't air until Tuesday, the full version of the track (along with two other songs from the episode) have leaked. After the jump, hear Kurt, Mercedes and Tina take the lead on the Lady Gaga song, Finn cover 'I've Gotta Be Me' by Sammy Davis, Jr., and Kurt tackle Barbra Streisand's 'As If We Never Said Goodbye.'

Speaking of Kurt, Chris Colfer has been keeping busy during what little free time he has between 'Glee' shoots -- he's already written an indie film that's scheduled to shoot this summer (he's the lead, natch), and now he's sold a pilot to the Disney Channel.

Chris Colfer, 'The 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards'It was a big night for 'Glee,' with three wins at 'The 68th Annual Golden Globes' (Sun., 8PM on NBC). The first of these came in the supporting actor category, and there was perhaps nobody more surprised than winner Chris Colfer.

His role as Kurt Hummel on 'Glee' has grown to be one of the most powerful and poignant stories in the large ensemble, which has been emphasized by more screen-time in this second season for the 20-year old actor.

While he's already won a SAG and Teen Choice Award, this is the first major win of his career, and you could clearly see that he was both stunned and moved by the honor.

"I think I just dropped my heart between Natalie Portman and Julianne Moore," he said breathlessly upon reaching the podium. "So if anyone sees that, please give it back to me."
