It’s really been an interesting week for “Glee” star Chris Colfer. The local actor picked up his second consecutive Emmy nomination yesterday. He’s one of the contenders in the best supporting actor category for “The 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards.”
Colfer earned the Emmy nomination for the role created for him by executive producer Ryan Murphy.
What Murphy gives, he can take away.
Murphy said in an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter that Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will not be back after this year. He’s doing this because they started on the show as sophomores and they will graduate this year.
Colfer heard the news via Twitter. Twitter!? Really?
He told “Access Hollywood” that he expected something like this was going to happen because he couldn’t remain a high school student forever.
Actually, Colfer’s the one actor on the show who could stay longer. He still looks 15 years old. But, Murphy’s made his decision and it’s a bad one. He’s never going to strike instant acting gold like he did with Colfer.
At least Colfer’s smart enough to have already made deals to write and work in movies. He’s going to be fine. I can’t say the same thing for “Glee.”
