Chord Overstreet Rejects Role on 'Glee' Season 3

Chord Overstreet and his girlfriend Emma Roberts hold hands as they take a stroll along the beach on Sunday (July 24) in Malibu, Calif.

The 22-year-old actor’s fate on the hit show Glee was revealed by executive producer Brad Falchuk that afternoon at the Comic-Con panel.

While Chord was offered a recurring guest starring role on the third season of the show, Brad said “he decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can’t force him to work. We told him to go with god.”

Chord recently hinted on his Twitter account that he is working on his debut album. We can’t wait to hear it!

DO YOU THINK Chord Overstreet made the right decision with Glee?

    So stupid!

    It was the only descent role he could ever get!
    Does he really think that aunt Julia’s gonna cast him is one of her upcoming films? She didn’t help her niece, she’s certainly not gonna help her “boyfriend” (if that’s what he is) ..

    It is clear to see that Ryan Murphy is simply using Glee to relive his high school years and make them into what he thought they should of been; the self-centered pity Kurt show, I don’t doubt for a second that Chord got sick of fake promises and really no story lines. The Rachel-FInn, Kurt-my life is so terrible-blaine triangle have all gotten old. Finn can’t sing, and the show has become redundant and lacking serious continuity in the last season so I just don’t care for it anymore. Chord was a welcome changed when they actually let them have lines or a solo. Brad and Ryan are going to be the end of this show, not the lack of Lea, Cory and Chris.

    Lol more lies. They fired him, got bad feedback and asked him back. He let his pride get in the way and rejected. He should know that HW success is all about kissing ass. You can’t be a prat so quick into your career.

    I think that he made a good choice with not going back to glee.
    The show is just going to all about blaine probably next season anyway. Nothing against Darren, but BLAINE sucks and his character is nothing good, just bland. Sam was a better much character, but they made Darren a season regular before even thinking about Chord. Screw the show. Hopefully something good will come for Chord.

    i wished him well and it sucks how this adorable character from glee was taken out,,,
    i hate fox and hate how they make us fall in love with a character then suddenly boom they take it all away from us, they keep writing characters that the audience will love and the next minute they cut it off without further notice,,, i mean is that even good writing>?…i respect chord’s decision he is still human and his ego and pride has been trapped by the rib producers so he has no other option but to get out of it…
    did the glee producers did think trought what’s next after highschool? comeon it’s not forever remember the o.c. they killed marissa and the audience was gone an dit got cancelled,,,and another house they cut off lisa adelstein in house? i mean what were they thinking and last prison break they kill sarah …if american idol wasn’t in that station it would probably suck and they would not have the highest ratings or if friends were still on air so boo t0 FOX!!!

    I’m guessing with Glee in his rear view mirror, we can expect more photographed walks on the beach to keep him relevent.

    @steph: Lisa was killed off House because she refused to accept the salary. She was asking for more and more money. She pulled a Paula Abdul and thought they’d beg her to come back but they didn’t.

    it was a trapped or reverse psychology mechanism that the producers are doing, they make this stuff they tell us things that the actors want and what they want and it’s for us to beleive?,,,,i mean can we truly know what really happened…

    steph Says:

    it’s the producers it’s their reverse psychology? i mean who knows what really happened behind all this?>..they trapped each others out,,,

    dud Says:

    i like emma and i like chord, still cant believe they’re a couple, cute!

    steph Says:

    I do not believe that Chord declined the offer. The writers are turning what really happened upside down.

    Jon-Pl Says:

    @steph: He declined to come back as a guest star but that was only after they dropped him. He didn’t ask to leave from the get go like they are trying to tell us.

    steph Says:

    @jon-pi bec they left him with no choice it’s like ” hey chord, you’ll come back but your still demoted,,,he has no other options, i mean he had to let go even if it sucked bec they couldn’t just promote him…

    steph Says:

    because he was trapped!

    emma can talk to aunt jolia she can finde a job 4 both of them,that how u made it in hollywood if you dont have talent.,

    Jon-Pl Says:

    Regardless he should have taken the opportunity to come back. It would have opened up more doors for him. He should be gracious, getting a gig on Glee after only appearing on a webseries is a big deal. The hype got to his head.

    the only reason i knew about this kid was because of glee. does he really think that going solo, hes going to be more successful?? i highly doubt it….

    @lira: My thoughts too! What a funny, though strange, thing to say; like the “nice” version of telling someone to go to hell.
    Oh well, maybe his girlfriend can help him land better/movie roles.

    he’s a sweet guy and i wish him well … as long as he doesn’t make country music … which is the road i think he is going to take.

    He seems like a private person. I wonder if he’ll get used to her pap-calling.
