O-M-‘Glee!’ What Does Oliver Kieran-Jones’ Casting Mean for Klaine?
While the demise of Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson’s relationship a.k.a. Klaine has been regarded by Teen.com readers as the most traumatizing of the failed coupledoms on Glee (see here), it appeared that there was a glimmer of hope for a reunion between the two as Darren Criss and Chris Colfer were spotted shooting an ice-skating scene together in Bryant Park as recently as last month.
And, even more recently, Kurt called Blaine during the “Thanksgiving” episode, mentioning that he has not totally forgiven his ex, but they should at least discuss their issues in a mature manner because they both still love each other.
Seems like things are headed in a happy direction, right? Wrong! A new casting decision may affect the once happy twosome yet again. According to Deadline, “[Oliver] Kieran-Jones will play the leader of the glee club at NYADA, which new student Kurt Hummel is interested in joining.” This young British actor is said to be taking on a recurring role on the show, and may, as stated by The Hollywood Reporter, play “a potential love interest” for Colfer’s character.
We’ll see what happens, though. Remember when Grant Gustin was brought on board? He, too, was meant to provide a shake-up for Klaine. So stay tuned! What do you think of the latest casting decision? Do you think it’s time for Kurt and Blaine to move on? Or do you want to see a reunion? Tell us in the comments below or on our Glee message board!
