PaleyFest Spoilers!Thursday, March 17, 2011
Look who’s about to get some matching tuxes ready! EW has learned that new couple Blaine and Kurt will attempt to attend their high school prom, which may not be a simple proposition. ”That story is going to be ripped from the headlines,” creator Ryan Murphy told reporters tonight in Los Angeles. “Can you imagine two boys wanting to go to the prom in Ohio?”
Murphy — who together with the Glee cast is participating in a Paley Center tribute to the Fox show — also announced that Kristin Chenoweth will reprise her role as the boozy former glee club star April Rhodes. And here’s an exciting change in Glee’s modus operandi: The plan in the near future is to center an episode around a single album — Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 album Rumours, to be specific — as opposed to an artist.
Brad Falchuk added that “Klaine,” like the the show’s other super couples, would face their fair share of obstacles. “What [else] happens when people start dating?” he said, “Everything goes to hell.” Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer hinted that one of the obstacles might involve a separation of sorts. When asked if Kurt and Blaine would eventually transfer to McKinley High, Colfer responded, “Maybe half of them will… Distance makes the heart grow fonder, right? That’s what they tell me. So even if they do go through some bumps in the road, it would be very realistic.”
