Ryan Murphy clears up “Glee” questions

HollywoodNews.com: You gotta wonder if Ryan Murphy is going to start thinking twice about giving revealing interviews about the future direction of Glee after the most recent fiasco involving cast members Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith.

After Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that the trio would be written off the show after the upcoming season three, fellow Glee producer Brad Falchuk contradicted that at Comic-Com last week.

In an interview with Deadline Hollywood, Murphy gives us an update:

“When I did that interview [with THR], what was happening was we were asked to investigate doing a spin-off and it was a spin-off specifically for three of them, Chris, Cory and Lea,” Murphy explains. ”We weren’t allowed to talk about a spin-off. It was too premature. We didn’t want to do it then. The idea was to do it this fall when Glee gets back on the air. Then, to pick up and read the actors saying, ‘We found out we were fired from Twitter.’ All of us, the studio, the network, were like, ‘OK, that isn’t exactly cool,’ because we involved all three of them in that decision. So then what happened is that we decided, ‘OK, let’s not do it.’ So that’s where we are today.”

    LOL at the 3 glee cast! i think that’s the most stupid thing to do… to believe on those tweets and reports right away, without asking or confronting the right people if the news are really true! and it’s so stupid too to comment on those reports right away even if they have not confirmed it yet! you 3 blew it, so no spin-offs for you! LOLz!

    Honestly, if you read what the actors say, they don’t say that they found out about them leaving the show on twitter they say they found out that Ryan Murphy made the announcement that they were leaving via twitter! I think Ryan Murphy is acting irrationally and should really talk to the actors instead of believing the headlines.
