Just because McKinley High's done for the summer doesn't mean the talented "Glee" cast is taking a break. Fourteen of the show's cast members plus a couple of Warblers are staying busy with an international tour and plenty of other projects until the addicting show begins again in the fall.
Although Chris Colfer is joining the main crew in the "Glee Live! In Concert!" tour throughout the U.S., U.K. and Ireland until July, the 21-year-old recently announced he has signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books.
"When I was 10-years-old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance,” he said in a press release. “This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it.”
Sounds like Colfer is taking on quite the workload, along with writing the script for a Disney Channel pilot.
Will Schuester might have made the decision to forgo Broadway for the New Directions, but Matthew Morrison won’t be going on tour.
Instead, Morrison is working to promote his solo album, released in May, with solo performances and will then join the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys tour from July to August.
Following suit with Morrison and Mark Salling's forays into the recording world, Naya Rivera just announced a record deal with Columbia Records, and she plans to begin recording the album after the tour.
While you might imagine Sue Sylvester spends her summers plotting against the “Glee” club, Jane Lynch is occupied filming her upcoming movie “The Three Stooges” in Atlanta. She’s also going to be hosting the Emmys in September.
Lynch added in a statement, "I'm looking forward to singing, dancing and sporting my finest tracksuit."
What do the Gleeks think about these summer plans? Who has a ticket to watch the cast perform at a live show?
