Ryan Murphy Finally Confirms Who Isn't Playing Kurt's Boyfriend on Glee

ColferKurt225.jpgHow is it possible that this is still going on? Despite the fact that all signs pointed to new Glee co-star Chord Overstreet playing the part of Kurt's prom king boyfriend, creator Ryan Murphy has finally gone on the record to say he won't be. "It's definitely not Chord," Murphy told E! Online. So does that mean it will be Darren Criss, the web star who was recently cast as gay high school student, Blair? "The new character is certainly an option. I'm not sure how soon I want to [reveal] that information. because it's such a big storyline of the year -- I want there to be some surprises." Uh-huh. Which gets to the problem with this merry-go-round.

As Movieline has previous discussed, Murphy seems to have a major problem keeping his mouth shut when it comes to Glee, despite his many protestations to the contrary. Bear in mind, all this talk about Kurt's boyfriend started with Murphy, when he told anyone who listened that he wanted to write a Prom King & King episode for Kurt and his beau. "I want there to be some surprises"? Too late, Ryan.

In the meantime, we'll never know what caused the switch away from Overstreet playing Kurt's boyfriend. (Remember, Jane Lynch confirmed that Overstreet was playing the part, something we can assume she didn't just pull out of thin air.) Was it because, as Chris Colfer stated, Overstreet was too handsome? Or was it because Murphy is spoiling the show faster than the scripts are being written? Whatever the reason, start thinking of catchy nicknames for Kurt and Blair (Klair?) since it appears they'll be locking lips. Unless, of course, Murphy changes his mind again.

    I am a fan of all things "Glee" (I even liked this week's episode, so there!), and I am usually a bit of a spoiler whore, but I really, really wish Ryan Murphy would just shut the hell up for a while and concentrate on actually making the show.

    He got a real pretty mouth ain't he?

  • Jennifer says:

    I actually think it's still gonna be Chord and Ryan Murphy has decided that he's going to try to fake people out for once. Because between the HoYay in the first episode, and the part where I think every guy in glee BUT Kurt met Sam, well...
    Also, I just can't picture Kurt with that Darren kid.

  • Kristen says:

    This is stupid. This got so many peoples hopes up with the Sam being Kurts boyfriend. I still think it could be an option. I think Ryan shouldn't say if he will or will not be Kurts boyfriend,and let us all be surprised. Idk. I like the show, but secrets should be held behind the set. I still hope Sam will be it. It makes sense that he would be.

  • A says:

    This is so stupid! So many people were looking forward to Kurt and Sam getting together.... I've got to say, if it doesn't happen, this will be a huge dissapointment for tons of gleeks. Ryan Murphy, I love you to death, but keep your mouth shut for once!

  • Mad says:

    I liked the jock power couple idea....Sam falling in love with Kurt and having a big decision to make because Kurt is proud and out...and Sam actually deciding love wins...a reverse "Get Real"....something that doesn't happen and looks like it wont happen. What is the big deal about to gay out teenagers dating from different school. Boring story that would be
