The stars of Glee are busy busy people. Cast members including Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Dianna Agron, Ashley Fink, Heather Morris and Chord Overstreet were all spotted leaving the Lowry Hotel in Manchester, England this evening. The group are performing at the MEN Arena as part of the 2011 Glee Live tour.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy caused a raucous the other day when he commented about the New Directions teens graduating. He spoke to Entertainment Weekly to clear up a few things.
All the kids in the cast will not be graduating at the end of next year. Murphy said, “To that I would say there are some people who are not seniors and there are some people that are REALLY intellectually challenged. Like, you know that Britney is pulling straight Fs. Chord is not a senior. I believe Darren is not a senior. There’s a group of them. But this year we will be adding new people.”
Plus, the season really is going to be different from this past season. Ryan went on to say, “I’ll be honest with you: Glee is going to be different this year than it was last year. It’s going to go back to the broadcast model of the first season where there was a fall semester and there was a spring semester. I don’t know what we’re going to do with the spring semester because we’re having so much fun with the fall semester right now. But I know there’s going to be The Glee Project winner and we’re casting for two other female parts. This year, the thing that’s different is we’re doing a lot of stories with characters that people love but don’t know a lot about. There will always be huge stories with Lea. There will always be huge storylines with Chris Colfer. But like I wanna know more about Tina and Mike. I wanna know more about Mercedes. We have a great storyline planned for Sue which will involve the Glee Project winner who will become the person Sue has hated the most in the entire history of her life. She’s done destroying the glee club and she just wants to destroy the Glee Project winner!”
