Beyoncé to star in musical

Bey to star in new film, One Hit Wonders

Beyoncé has signed up to appear in a new movie directed by Glee creator, Ryan Murphy.

It is thought to be the new mum’s first major role since giving birth to her daughter, Blue Ivy in January.

The musical movie, titled One Hit Wonders, will also feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Cameron Diaz and Reese Witherspoon, with all four playing singers who each made it big in the 90s, before fading into obscurity.

According to BBC Newsbeat, the film will follow the singers as they meet and join forces to create a supergroup.

Murphy will write the script with fellow Glee co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennen and Gwyneth – who made a cameo in the popular show – will reportedly part-produce the picture.

Star of US television series Saturday Night Live, Adam Samberg will also be involved with the project.

Beyoncé, 30, is currently taking some time off with her family to focus on being a mum, however, one of her co-writers, One Republic’s Ryan Tedder has revealed she’s got plans for two music projects this year.

He told MTV that they had already spoken about the follow-up to 4, which was released in June 2011, saying:

“The conversations about her next album literally just started and there [are] two projects happening.

“All I can say is you kind of feed her the best that you have and she’s this phenomenal filter and she takes it all in.”

Chord Overstreet to return to Glee

Sam will return to McKinley High

Actor Chord Overstreet has expressed his delight at news that he will be returning to Glee.

Fans were disappointed when it was leaked that Overstreet, who plays footballer Sam Evans on the show, would not be back for the third series of the popular programme.

However, now Glee creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed in a statement that the 22-year-old will in fact be returning to McKinley High after all:

“We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back.

“So here’s an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks – Sam is coming back to McKinley, and just in time for sectionals!”

Chord himself has said he had “the best time” on Glee and “couldn’t be more excited” to be returning.

E! Online is reporting that Overstreet, who is currently dating Emma Roberts, could be back on screens as early as episode eight in the current series.

The move is a big turnaround for the actor, who last year turned down a recurring role in the show in order to record an album.

He told TVLine back in August:

“They offered me the chance to come back for a few episodes, but there was nothing guaranteed so I decided to dive into the music thing  and that’s been my main priority the past two months.”

Chord’s character Sam left the show last season after his family moved away.

Glee airs Thursday nights exclusively on Sky1.

Glee’s Lea splits from boyfriend

'Amicable break-up'

Lea Michele and her Broadway actor other half Theo Stockman have gone their separate ways, it has been confirmed.

A representative for Glee star said that the relationship came to an end organically and amicably:

“This is not a dramatic break-up, the relationship just ran its course. They are still friends and will always be friends.”

However, while her rep claims she’s happy with the break-up, Lea previously said she’d “rather be in a long distance relationship with [Theo] than not have a relationship at all”.

It is being reported that the pairs busy schedules were to blame for the split, with Lea shooting Glee in Los Angeles and Stockman living in New York.

Twenty-five-year-old Lea and Stockmand first went public as a couple back in May 2010 and had been together for nearly 17 months.

The third series of Glee starts in the UK on 22 Septembe on Sky One.
