Cory Monteith Hub
Series' co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk told a Comic Con audience that three of Glee's stars, whom co-creator Ryan Murphy had said would be leaving at the end of the third season, would not be, Deadline reports:
“Here’s the exact thing: They’re seniors. They’re graduating. But that doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show," Falchuk said. "It was never our intention or plan to let these people go... They are not done with the show after this season.” Later on in the panel he revealed they had discussed the possibility of a spin-off show depicting the three graduates in New York, trying to start careers on Broadway, but that it probably wouldn’t happen and he was “leaning against doing it.”
Chord Overstreet will be leaving, however, of his own volition. “We told him to go with god,” Falchuk said.

Three of Glee's regulars, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith, and Lea Michele, (and likely a few more) will be graduating at the end of Season 3 and not returning.
Said creator Ryan Murphy to the Hollywood Reporter:
"You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year...We’ve never done anything by the book. We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”
Glee's Cory Monteith has joined the 'Straight But Not Narrow' campaign, an effort to encourage young heterosexual men to show support for their gay peers. Actor Josh Hutcherson recorded a video for the campaign back in March.
Says Monteith in his video: "So, maybe you like to play football, maybe you like to sing and dance, maybe you like both. Maybe you don't like either. Doesn't matter. Just be yourself. Just be you, because that's good enough for me. We're guys talking to guys about guys who like guys."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...
If you aren't a fan of Rocky Horror, there was also a smorgasbord of male flesh (Gleefcake?) to look at in last night's Glee. Gawker has a wrap-up of the episode here, with clips. Vanity Fair has a re-cap too.
What's you all think of the episode?
