One of the cast-members of Glee has posted a picture of the show’s male stars dressed as the Village People, sparking rumours about a tribute to the group.
Mark Salling, who plays Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the show, tweeted the image which appears to show him and his fellow actors in full Village People garb.
There’s Darren Criss as the biker, Cory Monteith as the Native-American, Harry Shum, Jr. as the cowboy, Chris Colfer as the army guy, Chord Overstreet as the construction worker and Salling himself as the cop.
“The glee bros and I wanted to keep up our chops up over the hiatus so we formed a tribute band,” Salling commented with the image.
The photo led some to speculate that Glee is planning a special tribute episode to the gay-icons.
However, on closer inspection of the photo, it’s clear that the faces of the Glee actors have been ‘photoshopped’ on top of a photo of the real Village People, suggesting that the whole thing is simply a joke on the part of Salling.
Meanwhile, the producers of Glee have cleared up rumours that some of the show’s actors would be leaving the series.
“They’re seniors. They’re graduating. But that doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show. It was never our intention or plan to let these people go… They are not done with the show after this season,” said Glee producer and co-creator Brad Falchuk.
