Chris Colfer on his Twitter getting hacked: 'It sucked'

Talk about a rough landing: Chris Colfer was getting off an hours-long flight from London to L.A. when he found out his Twitter had been hacked and the hacker had told the entire internet that Colfer was let go from Glee. “It sucked,” Colfer–who is definitely not let go from Glee–told Jessica Shaw in an Entertainment Weekly Radio interview.

Lea Michele's Twitter hacked; no, she's not pregnant

This morning, Glee star Lea Michele’s Twitter account delivered what seemed at first glance to be big news. “Before this gets out to the media,” read a post that went live at 11:20 AM, “I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.”

The post was quickly removed, however, and the actress’s reps have confirmed that it was a hoax tweet from a hacker.

If the message itself didn’t seem a little off—check out that clumsy hashtag—there was already reason to suspect it wasn’t legit. Yesterday, Glee star Chris Colfer’s Twitter briefly displayed a message claiming that he was being “let go” from the show due to “personal issues.” The tweet was subsequently removed, and Colfer announced that he’d been hacked.

Is the proximity between the two prank tweets a coincidence, or is someone systematically targeting Glee on Twitter? It’s unclear for now, but one thing’s certain—until everything gets sorted out, it might be a good idea to take any Glee-related news breaking online with a grain of salt.

Chris Colfer on writing his first 'Glee' episode and his dream ending for Kurt in the series finale

Glee star Chris Colfer has already written a feature film, a children’s book series, and a Disney Channel pilot, so it seemed only natural that the budding scribe would be tapped by the forces that Glee to write an episode for the musical series.

“Old Dogs, New Tricks,” the penultimate episode in Glee‘s fifth season, marks Colfer’s first time stepping into the writers’ room, which posed its own set of challenges and intimidating factors for the young star.

Chris Colfer may be best known for playing Kurt since the beginning of Glee, but now the Golden Globe winner is getting the opportunity to see his character from a completely different side.

Colfer is currently writing an upcoming episode of Glee that will air later this season. Though it’s the first time Colfer will write for the hit Fox show, fans know that he is already an accomplished writer with the movie Struck By Lightning and the New York Times best-selling children’s novel series The Land of Stories. Now, after five seasons in front of the camera, Colfer is realizing how much his work will affect everyone behind the scenes.

“Usually when I’m writing a project, it only affects me,” Colfer tells EW. “But now it affects everyone I’m working with. Sometimes I want to torture my castmates a bit!” READ FULL STORY

'Glee' 100th episode party, On the Scene: Stars look back on 100 episodes, reveal whose song they would steal

When Glee first debuted in 2009, the Fox series incorporated music in a way that hadn’t been seen on television before. Without any big-name stars in the cast, the show was a definite risk. Now, more than five years and 100 episodes later, the risk has more than paid off. With a 3-D film, sold-out concert tours, millions of albums sold, and Billboard records broken, the cast and crew got together in Hollywood on Tuesday night — the same night the show’s 100th episode aired – with plenty to celebrate. EW was on the scene and asked the cast to look back at the phenomenon that they helped create.

“We were always the little show that could,” said Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe for his work as Kurt on the show. “When the first episode aired, everyone said, ‘Oh, it’s cute, but it’ll never last,’ ’cause a musical could never work on television, so it’s really validating to be here.” Colfer was joined by some of his original castmates for the special 100th episode, including Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, and Amber Riley. Many will also return later this season to see Rachel’s Broadway debut with the opening night of Funny Girl, which the cast just finished filming in New York City. The series will now completely relocate outside of Ohio to the Big Apple for the remainder of the series, which will end next year after six seasons.

“It’s amazing the amount of stories we’ve told,” co-creator Ian Brennan told EW. “Particularly in the way that we tell stories, but even sitting there today as we were talking about where we want to end up in the show, it’s amazing the stories we haven’t told, which I think leaves this last year…to be really exciting creatively.” Brennan is credited with coming up with some of the most memorable one-liners that Jane Lynch spits out as Sue Sylvester. Lynch’s favorite memories of the past 100 episodes come from the start when she was first creating the character and relationships with the Glee kids that would end up lasting for years. “I’m a great beneficiary of great writing and a great track suit, and it was kind of a job that came together at the right time for me, so I’m grateful for that.” Lynch’s favorite early Sue zingers?

'Glee' Review: An earnest, flawed tribute to the life (not the death) of Cory Monteith

How do you grieve? Emphasis on the you, not so much the how. There is no one and right way to grieve, and any form of it is going to be messy, awkward, and painful. Glee’s tribute to Cory Monteith — who died in July at the age of 31 from a drug overdose — told a story that marked the passing of the character he played, the good-hearted, comically dim high-school jock Finn Hudson. It was an exploration of grief — and a “self-serving spectacle of our own sadness” to quote the always tactful Sue Sylvester — that was, not surprisingly, messy, awkward and painful. As catharsis for fans of Glee and Monteith, “The Quarterback” was much like Finn himself: Earnest, flawed, a little irritating, winning.

The most conspicuous and debatable choice made by Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk was to deny the audience an explanation for what caused Finn’s death. Speaking through some opening narration by Finn’s glee-club cohort and stepbrother Kurt (Chris Colfer), we were told this information didn’t matter, with a tone that made it sound like it was inappropriate for us to even want to know: “Everyone wants to talk about how he died, but who cares?” It played like a passive-aggressive scold to those who only want to dote on Monteith’s death (and yeah, those people are jerks…), not — to again quote Kurt — “how he lived” (… but like we knew him?).

Chris Colfer on returning to 'Glee' this week: 'Things will be very different'

While some of his Glee castmates returned to work today, Chris Colfer won’t be joining them until later this week. The actor is currently in New York City promoting the release of the second novel in his The Land of Stories series, The Enchantress Returns. Colfer stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio/SiriusXM 105 this morning to speak with EW‘s Dalton Ross and Jessica Shaw about the book and returning to Glee after the loss of costar and friend Cory Monteith.

Asked whether reuniting with his TV family will be cathartic, difficult, or both, Colfer said he honestly doesn’t know. “We’ve had bumps and dips along the road over the course of the years, but nothing like this. I know we’ve always come together — always — in the past, because we are such a family in the cast and the crew. But I don’t know. I’m assuming things will be very different, and I’m sure they’ll be difficult at first. But…. We’ll see. I think I’m positive.” Listen to that portion of the interview below. READ FULL STORY
