Lea Michele Leaving 'Glee'

You know how when you’re on a very successful show your head gets too big and you think you can do better without them? Yeah, that’s what’s happening with Lea Michele and few other cast members from Glee.

Lea has announced that she’ll be leaving ‘Glee’ at the end of next season along with Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith and other, as yet, unnamed cast members.

Creator Ryan Murphy – who insists more characters will leave than stay - told The Hollywood Reporter: "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top."

Cory wasn't consulted about the decision, but Ryan explained: "He knows he was a sophomore when the show started."

The scriptwriter insists several characters had to leave because they are supposed to be high school students only.

Ryan explained: "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year."

So either A) the cast is getting diva on Ryan and want outrageous salaries now or B) everyone’s ego is getting too big for the show and they think they can do better.

What do you think of Ryan recasting almost the entire show? Good idea or is he asking for failure?
