Glee fans rally to save Chord Overstreet

GleeGlee fans are rallying to save actor Chord Overstreet from being dropped from the cast.

It was announced over the weekend that as part of a cast shake-up Chord Overstreet was being dropped as a regular cast member of Glee. The actor plays Sam Evans in the musical drama and while he may still make “occasional” appearances in the third season he won’t be a regular. Actors Darren Criss and Harry Shun Jr have been promoted to the regular cast after guest appearances during the show’s second season.

Fans of Chord Overstreet aren’t taking the news lying down though. There’s a campaign, on Twitter, to encourage fans to buy his rendition of Billionaire – to show the mass support for the actor. It’s had an affect because the song is now 5th in the iTunes chart – pretty impressive. There’s a second campaign meanwhile which has nearly 12,000 signatures to keep Overstreet in Glee.
