Glee cast shakeup includes removal of Chord Overstreet aka Sam Evans

I was surprised to read that Glee’s creator Ryan Murphy has removed “trouty mouth” Sam Evans, played by Chord Overstreet, from the cast. On the heels of the wrap up of the Glee Live! Tour 2011 that played its last show in Dublin, Ireland came some announcements about Glee season 3 that included no more Sam.

A Glee mashup of sorts brings brothers Chord and Nash Overstreet together for Hot Chelle Rae video “Tonight Tonight”

So who knew that Chord Overstreet who plays Sam Evans on Fox’s “Glee” was the brother of HCR band member Nash Overstreet? Did you catch a glimpse of him in HCR’s video above for “Tonight Tonight”?
