In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, co-creator Ryan Murphy says the three regulars will be among the characters who graduate at the end of the fall’s upcoming third season.
Glee regulars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will not be back for the fourth season of the Fox musical hit.
In an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series co-creator Ryan Murphy said that the three regulars will be among the characters who graduate at the end of the fall’s upcoming third season.
Colfer, Michele and Monteith are “not going to be back at all for Season 4,” Murphy said. “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.”
Murphy added that planning for the future beyond high school will be a heavy theme during Season 3, noting that “more characters are leaving than are staying” when graduation time comes at the season’s end.
HEWLETT-PACKARD, introducing its new TouchPad in the crowded touch-screen tablet pack, has enlisted the quirky British comedian Russell Brand and other youthful celebrities in an attempt to provide the pizazz younger buyers look for when they choose personal devices.
Tying its marketing to Mr. Brand and Miranda Cosgrove and Lea Michele — stars of Nickelodeon’s “iCarly” and Fox Broadcasting’s “Glee,” respectively — H.P. is underscoring its slogan that the TouchPad “Works Like Nothing Else.”
In seeking to trump its tablet rivals like Apple’s iPad, H.P. is appealing to teenage music fans with Ms. Michele, Glee’s comedic and singing actress. She is highlighting the TouchPad’s ability to play flash videos from the Web and the sound system, “HP Beats Audio.” In another video, Ms. Cosgrove touts WebOS features on the Veer phone, including its navigation system, Web browsing and video playing.
