Chord Overstreet ‘Graduates’ from “Glee”

Chord Overstreet performs with 'Glee' cast June 25

Chord Overstreet tweeted this yesterday:

well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh

Turns out the “Glee” actor’s guest-starring role as Sam Evans didn’t pan out as a permanent gig, which limits Chord’s future presence on the show to cameos. Judging by his Twitter, it sounds like he simply plans to move on.

Frankly, I’m gobsmacked—I didn’t even realize this was a thing that could happen. Like, I know SNL has “featured players” who vie for roles as actual castmembers, but it’s weird to me that a FOX sitcom would do the same. Plus, I don’t even watch the damn show, so I just assumed he was, you know, kind of a fixture. Nonetheless, Chord Overstreet is out of the show. There you have it.

Deadline reports that Darren Criss and Harry Shum, Jr., however, are in. Oh, Chord Overstreet. I feel awful. What’s a fella named “Chord” supposed to do now, anyway? Become an action star? A celebrity chef? A fitness guru? I mean, he was born to play a teenaged choir member. It’s a given, it’s right there in his name.

But who knows. Maybe his girlfriend Emma Roberts will rethink her ethics and pull some strings for him.
