Did Chris Colfer Just Get Fired From Glee?

Chris Colfer Glee

On Thursday Glee‘s Chris Colfer announced his departure from the Fox series. “Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE,” he Tweeted, before adding: “Explanations will come shortly…” Wait, what? Colfer has played fan favorite Kurt Hummel since season 1, and his character was and remains an integral part of the show’s shift to New York. He was never rumored to have drama behind the scenes — unlike costar Naya Rivera who was rumored to have conflict with Lea Michele, and whose future with the show has been called into question multiple times — so surely he’d be a central focus during the show’s sixth and final season.

The Most Un-Scary Carrie Homages In TV And Movies

carrie-main

Did the brand new Carrie scare the crap out of you over the weekend? Or did you skip it, ’cause you’d seen the Brian de Palma original too many times? Or maybe, if you’re like me, you have never felt the need to see either version because a) you’re a scaredy cat, and b) this movie has been referenced and clipped and parodied and paid homage to so many times, that it really feels like you’ve seen it anyway. It’s even a verb: Being “Carrie’d,” as in having a bucket of blood (or other unsavory liquid) spilled on you when you’re onstage. Really, you’d think schools and theaters would have people checking the rafters more frequently for mean girls carrying suspicious pails. Anyway, if you’re chicken like me, but feel the need to talk about the movie with your horror-buff friends this Halloween season, here you have five very benign Carrie moments in pop culture:

Glee Remembers Cory Monteith, We Look Back At At Our 2009 Interview With Him

Cory Monteith Glee

We’re buying extra boxes of Kleenex for Glee’s “The Quarterback,” the episode dedicated to Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith, the late actor who made Finn one of the most endearing singing football players ever to grace the small screen. Just to get the tears started a little early, we reached into the VH1 archives and pulled out this interview we did with Monteith, Lea Michele and Amber Riley back in 2009. It was a silly round of “5 Questions,” but now even Cory’s joking answers mean something to us.

Too Old For School: 30 Young Roles Played By Overage Actors

composite_older_actors

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and Grease are just two of the many iconic high school movies that have earned a more permanent place in our hearts than our own graduating class. But as much as we think we know their stories inside and out, we often forget their central lie: Their stars were way older than their roles. Prepare to be amazed (or at least to laugh knowingly!) as we take a look at some hit TV shows and movies — from The Graduate to High School Musical, Beverly Hills 90210 to Buffy — starring actors who aren’t exactly age appropriate for the parts they play. Check out the full gallery of the 30 over-aged actors who managed to fool us!
