The buzz on the Internet is that Chord
Overstreet will play Chris Colfer's boyfriend on Fox's musical comedy
We say buzz because it's not official,
but Jane Lynch, who plays sharp tongued coach Sue Sylvester and
married her wife in Massachusetts, dropped strong hints Monday
that Overstreet and Colfer, who plays gay student Kurt Hummel, are
headed for a liplock when the show returns for its second season in
the fall. (Glee
showmaster Ryan Murphy has previously criticized ABC's comedy hit

Kurt's boyfriend has already been cast,
Lynch told celebrity network E!, and he's a “good-looking kid”
who's “tall, boyish with straight blond hair and big fat, pouty
“Of course that describes new cast
member Chord Overstreet to a tee!” Greg Hernandez of
exclaimed at his celebrity blog.
The iCarly alum has been cast to
play the role of jock Sam Evans in season two.
Twenty-year-old Colfer, who is openly
gay, has been nominated for an Emmy for his portrayal of Kurt.
