After getting over the shock of their being booted from the Fox hit “Glee,” the show’s soon-to-be-graduated stars are revealing that they will have plenty of other work to fall back on, MTV.com reports.

Show creator Ryan Murphy revealed this week that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will all leave the series after the upcoming third season. One rumor — and it’s only a rumor so far, reported by RumorFix — has Michele and Colfer getting a “Glee” spinoff.

In more concrete news, Colfer has written and will star in an upcoming film, “Struck by Lightning,” with word surfacing today that he will be joined in the cast by “Mad Men’s” Christina Hendricks. Also on board are “Modern Family’s” Sarah Hyland and Dermot Mulroney of “My Best Friend’s Wedding.”

Michele and Monteith also reportedly have film projects in the works. Michele is set to appear in “New Year’s Eve,” a romantic comedy from Garry Marshall, which is already filming. Monteith, besides being in the recent release “Monte Carlo,” is lined up for the upcoming “Sisters & Brothers.”
