Chris Colfer has broken apart from the "Glee" gang to make his starring film debut in the upcoming release, "Struck By Lightning."
The 21-year-old also wrote the coming-of-age comedy, in which he plays a high school student named Carson. Carson is dead set on becoming the "youngest freelance journalist ever to be published in The New York Times, L.A. Times and Chicago Tribune."
But first, he has to get into Northwestern University - and he's not above blackmailing his classmates into helping him get there.

"Glee" was already planning to cover Whitney Houston on Tuesday's episode - the show's first time doing so, star Matthew Morrison told CNN - but the performance has since also turned into a tribute.
Keeping in tune with Valentine's Day, the episode featured plenty of love songs, and Amber Riley's character Mercedes ended up belting out "I Will Always Love You" to her love interest/ex, Sam.

After weathering the disappointment that Elton John reportedly wasn't available to play one of Rachel Berry's dads, Gleeks had a reason to perk up on Wednesday.
TVLine reports that Tony-winning Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent's" Jeff Goldblum will portray Hiram and LeRoy Berry, the couple who adopted and raised Lea Michele's character Rachel.
We won't have to wait long to see them in action, either - the Berry dads will make their first appearance in the February 14 episode of "Glee," and they're expected to sing.

"Glee" returned on Tuesday night with reality star NeNe Leakes, Helen Mirren's voice (which provided Becky's internal monologue), and not one but two proposals - the last of which ended in a cliffhanger.
(If you're nervous about spoilers, you should stop reading now.)
Let's start with Leakes' character, Roz Washington, the synchronized swim coach who is just as vocal as Leakes is on her Bravo reality show.

The "Today" show may be considering Ryan Seacrest as a potential successor to Matt Lauer should the position become available, but the Hollywood heavyweight is still devoted to "American Idol."
He said as much at during the Television Critics Association's winter tour, explaining to press, “I can tell you I can’t imagine life without 'American Idol.' I have a deal with NBC Universal already…but I can’t comment on that.”
Talk then turned to "Idol's" competition, “The X-Factor” and “The Voice,” and that's when the gloves came off!

It looks like Ricky Martin is filling the role of the "hottest Spanish teacher ever in the history of Ohio" on "Glee" just fine.
News that the 40-year-old singer was in talks for the guest role arrived last November, and on Thursday, Martin tweeted a photo of himself clad in all-black on his first day of work.
But while Martin is putting in work on the "Glee" set, rumors have been bouncing about that he's getting ready to tie the knot with boyfriend Carlos Gonzalez Abella on January 28.
