The Word: ‘Glee’ stars to become townies?

So ... it might be time to stop believin’, kiddos.

While “Glee” boss Ryan Murphy recently said stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Emmy-nominee Chris Colfer would be leaving the show after next season, that may not actually be the case. “Here’s the exact thing: [The characters] are seniors, so they’re graduating,” executive producer Brad Falchuk told the the audience at the show’s Comic-Con panel, according to TV Line. “But because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don’t say, ‘We’re gonna let you go.’”

Oh man — you know what happens if you don’t leave town after graduation: You become that townie burnout, a la Matthew McConaughey in “Dazed and Confused.”  I can’t wait for the episode where Rachel, desperate for her high-school days and wanting to impress the new members of New Directions, starts belting out show tunes while buying Mad Dog 20/20 for underage high school students.

No boundaries for this vampire couple

“True Blood” star Anna Paquin admits being married to co-star Stephen Moyer makes filming intimate scenes easier.

“Maybe it should be weird, simulating sex with your husband in front of people? But it’s really not,” Paquin tells V Magazine. “When it’s a love scene with someone you actually love, there’s no feeling like, ‘Can I touch him here? Can I touch him there?’ You know what your boundaries are — or what they aren’t, I suppose.”

What’s most impressive is that Paquin, after all of those years of being together, is able to pretend like she still wants to rip his pants off instead of pretending to have a headache.
