'Glee' star pulled and producer wants 'The Boss'

Note to Gleeks: please handle the stars gently.

During a performance of the "Glee Live! In Concert" tour stop in Washington, D.C., co-star Darren Criss took to Twitter after he was yanked off stage following a rousing rendition of Queen's "Somebody to Love."

"To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit tonight: if I ever see you on a stage... keep your wits about ya. Love, Darren!" he tweeted.

Criss maintained his composure and averted injury, but also tweeted: "btw I'm lucky I didn't hit my head on the gate in front of this lady. Seriously close call tonight... Like, please don't kill me. I'm nice."

Of course, the incident was caught on camera (the actual deed occurs around the 3:03 mark):

Meanwhile, "Glee" executive producer Ian Brennan gave E! one name on his wish list for a celeb guest star on the show: "Bruce Springsteen as a motivational speaker," he said.

    I thought the wheelchair guy isn't really disabled? Why does he have to perform on a wheelchair during a liver performance?

      I think he has to stay in character at all times while performing with Glee. I think it would have been odd to see him dancing around, then watch the show and have him back in a wheelchair.

      He almost lost his balance because the chick wouldn't let go of him. He probably jumped in order not to fall

    Bruce Springzsteen only does 4 kinds of songs:
    1. Songs about New Jersey.
    2. Songs about cars.
    3. Songs about girls.
    4. Songs about ridin' around New Jerseys in cars, looking for girls.

      Not very deep are you? He might do 1 or 2 about the working man if you think real hard about it, or maybe listen.

      I would rather listen to Steve-O and his rappin than Springsteen and his over the top exhaltations of nothing. Cant stand him.
