Gleeks, we know last week’s casting news came as a blow, but at least we still have Sue Sylvester!

In a recent interview, Glee’s Jane Lynch opened up about the show’s Season 5 casting choices, particularly that of castmembers Heather Morris, Mark Salling, Amber Riley, and Harry Shum Jr.’s series regular cuts. And it seems the decision made complete sense to the HIGHlarious actress.

Jane said:

“That’s the nature of portraying a realistic view of high school: Kids graduate. They move on… I like that we’re following some of the kids to New York, where they’re trying to make it as actors and actresses. But the show will evolve, and when a show evolves that means you have to let some people go, and let some storylines go, so that you can pursue new ones.”

Though we hate to admit it, she has a point. And the show’s plot will probably be better for it.

As for Sue’s arc in the upcoming season, Jane revealed that she’s not in the know but will “figure in the plot somehow, since I am coming back. But how will I be allowed back? Your guess is as good as mine.”

We’ll just have to wait and see!

    The next cut they need to make, and by next I mean in the next day or so, is that awful, man-faced, ego-with-feet Leah Michele. Bitch needs some serious plastic surgery.

    Heather Morris is such a fantastic dancer, and they hardly let her dance at all this season. Lynch is correct with her comments; they can't be in high school forever. Glad Amber Riley is leaving; tired of her.

    Re: Pansy Hunter – I love you too. I don't know their facination with keeping her on the show, when there are others just as talented, if not better, than her. Other than her character being too whiny, annoying, and getting her way all the time, Lea Michele is too egotistical. She thinks she's amazing and she think she's so entitled. Can't wait until they phase her out. And when the show is done with her, how no one will be interested in her anymore.

    Laughable comments!! Lea Michele is the most talented singer on the show, none of the newbies are as great as her!! No one can reach the notes she can. She's not egotistical, she has come across as lovely, she is gorgeous and to say otherwise is just rude!! The show will never be done with her because she IS the show. If they axed her the show would be cancelled after one episode. Say what you want about her looks or what not, but there is NO DENYING her talent!!
