Jimmy Fallon Challenges Cory Monteith to a Jelly Donut Shootout (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 2nd 2011 6:06AM
Cory Monteith, 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon'Followers of 'Late Night' (Weeknights, 12:37AM ET on NBC) know how much Jimmy Fallon loves to play games with guests. He debuted a new one tonight that involved elements of hockey, and he was playing against Canadian Cory Monteith.

Sounds like Fallon should be at a disadvantage, but Monteith did not do his hockey-representing Canadians proud at all in the first ever Jelly Donut Shootout. First, he was even more stiff and awkward in front of a hockey net trying to play goalie than Finn is at dancing on 'Glee.'

Even though he hit a piece of the set way up high, Fallon still managed to score twice on Monteith. When it was Monteith's turn to shoot, Fallon eventually just laid down as his shots weren't even coming close to the net. In the end, it was Fallon winning 2-0. At least Canada can be proud of Monteith's abilities on the small screen.

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.

Cory Monteith Is Straight But Not Narrow (VIDEO)

by PopEater Staff, posted Jul 3rd 2011 10:00AM
Cory MonteithCorey Monteith is a dude who has something to say to dudes who like dudes. The 'Glee' star is the latest young Hollywood guy to voice his support for his same-sex lovin' peers -- and he's doing it in a PSA for 'Straight But Not Narrow.'

"Maybe you like to play football," Monteith says in the video. "Maybe you like to sing and dance. Maybe you like both. Maybe you don't like either. It doesn't matter, just be yourself. Just be you, cause that's good enough for me."

But Monteith isn't the only "guy talking to guys about guys who like guys," actors like Josh Hutcherson of the forthcoming 'Hunger Games' flick as well as 'Victorious' actors Avan Jogia and Matt Bennett have also taken a stance for their LGBT brothers.

Cory Monteith Is Definitely Not Finn Hudson

Cory MonteithCory Monteith plays lovable, conflicted, football-playing, glee club-singing teenager on Fox's hit series 'Glee' every Tuesday night, but Monteith says he is a far cry from his lovable on-screen character.

The 29-year-old sat down with PARADE magazine and dished about his less than perfect past: "I'm not Finn Hudson. I burned a lot of bridges, I was out of control."

Monteith dropped out of school -- after attending 12 different ones (including an alternative program for troubled teens) -- by the age of 16. He then entered rehab at 19 after his mother and friends feared he "could die" and demanded he make a change.

Corey Monteith Has a Record Deal, 'Real Housewife' Writing Advice Book & More TV News

Glee, Cory MonteithOf all the Gleeks, Corey Monteith is probably the last you'd consider for a solo record deal.

Yet the man otherwise known as 16-year-old Finn on Fox's 'Glee' talked to Parade magazine about his solo deal with Columbia Records in an article due out this weekend.

"I have a solo deal with Columbia Records. So it's about, do I want to release an album, when can we do it, what kind of album should it be, how should it be released and marketed and what's the right timing? Do I have time to do it?," Monteith told the magazine. "It's all about questions."

Then again, Monteith is a talented drummer, so perhaps his potential album would feature less singing and more drumming. Would you listen to a Monteith-only record?

Via a hidden microphone, Ellen DeGeneres has Monteith loudly declare his massive celebrity ("I'm a big star!"), ask not to be touched during the session, toss around a ball of invisible energy ("Catch it! Catch it! Catch it! Catch my energy!"), and babble gibberish.

Before They Were 'Glee' Stars

It might be hard to remember a world before 'Glee' now, but just two short years ago, hardly anyone knew who Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer were.

The 'Glee' cast members all had lives and jobs before they became household names. Hollywood Life recently reported Cory Monteith was a Wal-Mart greeter before his big break. You know who else had a sucky part-time job in a department store? Finn Hudson. Which got us thinking -- how similar are the actors to their 'Glee' characters?

Let's compare, shall we?

'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Is So 'Not Cool' (VIDEO)

'Glee' Star Jayma Mays Is So 'Not Cool'The musical drama 'Glee' is pretty hip right now. But does that coolness transfer over to one of the show's stars?

On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson talked with Jayma Mays -- who plays the OCD-afflicted guidance counselor on 'Glee.' While asking Jayma about her odd first name, Craig learned that Jayma's parents were wannabe hippies who simply made the name up. The hippie thing was strike one against Ms. Mays (the host isn't a fan of them). "Not cool," he said.

Craig gave Jayma another chance to show she was "cool." He placed a dollar bill on his desk and told the actress not to steal it. Unfortunately, Jayma failed this test as well.

'Glee' Girls Gone Wild in GQ Photoshoot

by Ryan McKee, posted Oct 19th 2010 8:00PM
'Glee' stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Dianna Agron are featured in a significant photo spread in November's issue of GQ magazine. At some point during the shoot by photography Terry Richardson, the girls lost most of their clothing.

"I don't know how they got me to do half the stuff I did," says Lea Michele.

Hmm, we're guessing they just asked her. Michele doesn't seem to have a problem flashing skin since she also went topless this month in a photo spread for Marie Claire UK. She also appears more confident in the exhibitionist shots than her counterpart Agron. Is Michele already focused on burning off her good-girl, high school student image?

As for Monteith, he just looks happy to be there - as would any man. Click here for the full gallery.

'The Simpsons' Premiere: 'Glee,' 'Flight of the Conchords' Show Up and Sing (VIDEO)

'Simpsons' Premiere: 'Glee,' 'Flight of the Conchords' Show Up and SingThis is the 22nd season of 'The Simpsons' (Sun., 8PM ET on Fox). Wow, has it really been that long? The years have just flown by. This particular 'TV Squad' writer still remembers when the first episode of the show came on. I happened to be in middle school when 'The Simpsons' debuted, which means that:

1) I'm really old now.

And ...

2) Gosh, 'The Simpsons' has been on TV for a really long time. I also recall when the show was considered so scandalous that Bart Simpson t-shirts were banned in my school for being too "in your face," but that's neither here nor there ...

At any rate, moving on ... 'The Simpsons' is now a beloved cultural institution, featuring many, many celebrity guest stars. And tonight's episode is no different. The show welcomes Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, stars of 'Flight of the Conchords,' -- and members of the identically named band, which is "New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo a capella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo." Yay! ... Oh, and some people from 'Glee' show up as well.
