Dianna Agron (Fox)

Production of Super Bowl "Glee" episode put on hold.

What options do you have for producing a hit musical comedy when the stars of the show, who rely heavily on their singing voices, come down with throat infections? has learned that production of Glee was recently shut down after both Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Kevin McHale (Artie) appeared to have come down with tonsillitis. Though the stoppage of filming has been deemed temporary, it occurred at a less-than-stellar time; the actors and crew were filming the extremely expensive Super Bowl episode.

In a recent entry on her personal blog, Agron offered her personal take on her illness. "Note to self... should have gotten a flu shot. In bed, hoping that medicine, soup, my computer and a marathon of movies will be the cure." For the rest of the cast and crew, regular shooting has been scheduled to start back up this week.
