Jane Lynch and Mark Salling Respond to Glee Casting News, Graduation

at . Comments

The cast of Glee will look very different on season four. But at least two of our favorite characters won't be going anywhere: Sue Sylvester and Noah "Puck" Puckerman.

In response to the announcement that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will all be exiting the series in 2012, Jane Lynch and Mark Salling recently spoke out on the shocking development.

"[Creator Ryan Murphy] rarely makes bad calls," Lynch said. "But I think it's kind of cool that they will graduate. And I also think it's kind of cool that the teachers get to stay."

Salling, meanwhile, told E! News he had "no idea" the casting move was coming: "I'm just grateful to be there and have a job and be around as long as they need me to be and want me."

Could he see any of the exiting actors starring in a spin-off, an idea gaining momentum among fans?

"I'm not a writer, but I can see that being a possibility," Salling said. "I think that's a good idea."

Glee Quotes

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
