It looks like Kurt will finally get his star quarterback on Glee.

No, we're not talking a romance with Finn, but...

Rumors that new castmember Chord Overstreet will play Chris Colfer's onscreen boyfriend appear to be true.

"They've cast him already," Jane Lynch told us last night at the Audi and Chopard Emmy party when we asked about Kurt's much-anticipated love interest. "He becomes the new star quarterback and he's going to be Kurt's boyfriend."

While Lynch said she couldn't remember the name of the actor who is playing Kurt's beau, she described the lucky guy as "a good-looking kid."

"He's tall, boyish, with straight blond hair and big fat, pouty lips," she said.

Sounds like Overstreet to us.

Overstreet, who has appeared on iCarly, recently joined Glee as Sam Evans, a footballing transfer student  who first befriends Finn, but eventually becomes his nemesis.

Show poobah Ryan Murphy remains tight-lipped about the upcoming romance. "We're working on it," he teased us at the Creative Arts Emmys.

Murphy did say that Rachel and Finn will be very much together next season. As for skirt-chasing Puck, he said, "He's struggling. He's torn about who to have sex with next."
