Lea Michele And Glee Cast To Be Replaced In 2012?

We love Glee but don’t think it would be the same without Lea Michele, Corey Monteith and the rest of the original cast.

But we might have to get used to it as the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy is already planning to replace them.

In an interview with Australia’s Herald Sun, Ryan explained that the cast will have to be replaced as they’ll get ‘too old’ to play high school students

He said:”Every year we’re going to populate a new group. There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”

He also revealed that some of the original cast will leave as early as 2012: “I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers’ lives.

“They graduate and they’re gone. When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes. For me it will be particularly tough, but a new crop [of actors] will come in.”

Of his newest recurits, he said: “[The current] kids caught on so quickly, but I think one of the things I’m very happy we’ve been able to do this year is we’ve brought in new characters.

“I think if you keep regenerating – and I didn’t think we could – I didn’t know if people would want those characters [like Sam] – but they do.”
