Glee's Chord Overstreet Demoted to Guest Star as Sam

Glee Update: More Blaine, Less Sam in Season 3

It feels like we were just watching the New Directions at Nationals on the season finale of Glee, but the show still goes on behind-the-scenes, and there's some interesting casting news. Apparently Chord Overstreet (Sam) will only appear as a guest star, while Darren Criss (Blaine) and Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) have been promoted to series regulars.

It's no surprise that we'll be seeing more of fan favorite Blaine and his Warblers, but I didn't expect to see Sam go so soon, particularly after the heavy storyline about his homelessness. Another character who will be getting less screen time is Lauren Zizes (Ashley Fink), though I'm admittedly not as broken up about that development, since her voice isn't quite as stellar as some of the other glee club members. On the bright side, hopefully this will open the door for a few new members, but so much for a hot new romance between Sam and Mercedes. How do you feel about these casting developments?
