Chris Colfer’s Twitter Announces That He’s Been “Let Go From The Cast Of ‘Glee’” After Apparent Hack

What Is Going On?!
Just when it seemed Glee was recovering during the past season from the loss of actor Cory Monteith and moving in a direction that focused more on the original cast members and less on late-in-the-series new ones, the Fox musical dramedy appeared today to have taken another blow. In the early afternoon, Chris Colfer tweeted the following: “Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly…” Or did he?

Colfer has been a series favorite since the show’s 2009 pilot episode, and this past season, his character Kurt Hummel became engaged to Darren Criss’ Blaine Anderson. Shortly after the above tweet that went out on the actor’s account, however, E! Online senior editor Marc Malkin posted on Twitter that Colfer’s Twitter had been hacked, per Colfer’s manager. “[W]hew! he will be back for more glee,” Malkin typed.

Head below to see the tweet that kicked off the drama, and the subsequent reactions of some of Chris Colfer’s fans. More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Kurt Sings “Lucky Star”, Rachel Goes To The Dogs & June Squibb Guest Stars

Star Light, Star Bright
Last week on Glee, Rachel (Lea Michele) had a close call with her Funny Girl producer when she sneaked away to Los Angeles for a TV show audition. She kept her job but by the skin of her teeth, and this episode continues to work to repair her image in the eyes of her producers, as well as the public. Meanwhile, Kurt (Chris Colfer, who wrote the episode) feels he’s been playing second fiddle to everyone else and takes an opportunity to find his own spotlight.

These kids need so much attention, don’t they? More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Rachel’s Backup Plan Backfires, Shirley MacLaine Guest Stars & The Cast Sings “Story Of My Life”

Shirley You Jest
Last week, Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) braved the Broadway stage for the first time on Glee, and garnered rave reviews for her turn in Funny Girl by the New York Times. (We also saw Sue Sylvester engage in the least likely display of on-screen romance since Lisa Marie Presley and Michael Jackson kissed at an awards show, but I digress…) Needless to say, it was a busy week.

This week’s episode, “Back-Up Plan,” opens with Rachel riding high on the success of her debut. She goes for a meeting at a powerful talent agency, ICA. The agent (played by Richard Kind) tells her she has “a face for radio,” honing in on her nose and advising her against trying to get film or TV jobs. It’s not exactly clear why he thinks she’s so hideous, but so goes the setup for Glee’s latest installment. More »

‘Glee’: ‘Funny Girl’ Opens, Sue Sylvester Falls In Love

Opening Night!
Glee’s fifth season has all been leading up to this: Rachel Berry’s (Lea Michele) opening night on Broadway. In fact, she’s been dreaming of this night since we first met her on the show so five years ago. With the pressure mounting for her to perform, the big question of the episode will be whether or not she’ll be able to pull it off, or if she’s going to choke on the stage for all the world to see.

‘Glee’ Recap: It’s All About Sex, Mercedes’ Virginity & Artie’s Clap In “Tested”

Let's Talk About Sex...And Let's Wait Awhile
Once again, the Glee kids are tackling a weighty issue because God forbid they keep it light. Every single storyline focuses on sex and how the characters either feel about having it or not having it, as the case may be. For all the talk about doing the nasty, we never actually see anybody getting it on, alas. But, I digress. So, let’s talk about what we do see. More »

‘Glee’ Recap: Amber Riley Debuts ‘Colorblind’, Kurt Is Sent To The ER In “Bash”

Tuesday’s “Bash” was a very serious episode of Glee. And by that, I mean an especially serious episode, because this season has brought one intense, emotional storyline after another. Tackling issues like gay bashing and racism, the series proved last night that there’s hardly any challenge that can’t be faced with spontaneous outbursts of song. More »

‘Glee’: The Gang Move To The “New New York,” Adam Lambert Proves To Be Valuable Friend

New York Gets Some New Residents
After last week’s graduation episode, McKinley High seems like a million miles away now that the focus of the show is shifting to Glee‘s original crew in New York City. It’s a reunion of sorts with Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Blaine (Darren Criss), Sam (Chord Overstreet), Artie (Kevin McHale) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) joining forces to take on the city that never sleeps. In case you were wondering how the kids fare in the big city, don’t worry — despite a big fight, a man-makeover and a mugging, they all make it through the ups and downs in the end. More »

We Bid Lima, Ohio Farewell
The fifth season of Glee truly has turned into the longest goodbye ever, with the last several episodes announcing that this truly is the end of glee club, only for some plan to save it emerging at the last minute. But this time, we know it’s for real — at least, according to teacher, Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), who has finally come to terms with the fact that New Directions is officially over.

Geographically, the series, along with several cast members, is making a permanent move to New York, beginning with next week’s episode. But before that, let’s see how it all played out during the show’s final hour spent in Lima, Ohio. More »

But before that can happen, there’s one last assignment for New Directions: Take a song they’ve performed in the past and give it an overhaul while the gang’s all here. More »
