“Glee” is set in high school, but three quarters of the people on it look they’re ready for pensions. (Just kidding!) So now a casting call has gone out for a recurring character, possible series regular. Here’s the description: GIRL] Female, 16 and above (to play high school) -PRETTY, star quality. SHE MUST SING WELL…we are looking for more of a pop sound rather than Broadway. Please submit all ethnicities.
Glee is giving fans some Sugar in Season 4: Vanessa Lengies‘ tart-tongued alter ego is set to return on a recurring basis, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Lengies, who will appear in the show’s Sept. 13 opener, joined the Fox hit last season and quickly established herself as one of McKinley’s more eccentric and outspoken (not to mention slightly tone deaf) pupils. With a little help from her piano magnet father, she cast herself as the lead singer of the New Directions spin-off choir The Troubletones (she was quickly downgraded to mere backup singer).
At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour Monday, Fox president Kevin Reilly said Glee‘s new season will split its focus between McKinley and NYADA, where Lea Michele’s Rachel is enrolled as a freshman. He also acknowledged that several returning vets will only be around part time. “We have a core [group consisting] of some of the returning characters and some of the new ones that we’ll be servicing every week, and then limited deals with some of the other actors, who will be joining here and there through the season,” he explained. “I think it will make for a fun surprise [when they turn up].”
Gleeks everywhere turned to Google early Monday after Fox announced two fresh faces would be joining the Fox musical’s upcoming fourth seasons in two potentially pivotal roles.
Newcomers Dean Geyer and Jacob Artist became the newest members of the Fox family when they landed parts as Rachel’s (Lea Michele) new love interest Brody Weston and Puck’s (Mark Salling) younger half-brother, Jake Puckerman, respectively.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with the new Glee guys on Monday at Fox’s All-Star Party at Soho House following the network’s presentation at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour to chat about auditioning for the series, their hopes for the show and how much they know about what’s to come.
The actor also known as Sam Evans will return to the Fox musical for Season 4 as the series repopulates the choir room.
Glee is repopulating New Directions, closing a deal to bring Chord Overstreet back to the Fox musical as a series regular.
To say the Glee cast has a lot going on would be an understatement. On top of returning to work this week to start production on the fourth season of the Fox musical dramedy, the young cast of the series is also juggling movies, books and recording their own albums.
The Hollywood Reporter caught up with stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Chord Overstreet and Matthew Morrison as well as exec producer Ian Brennan to get the dish on what’s ahead on Glee — and beyond.
Glee: Reilly has read the first three scripts of Season 4 and is “very happy with how seamless” the New York-Ohio split format is. Season 4 will juggle story lines in both locations, but there is no rigid formula for every episode. “At one point, I thought we would split the season down the middle [with one half taking place in Ohio and the second half in New York],” Reilly said. “Ultimately I don’t think that’s the way our fans want to watch the show. It is working seamlessly back and forth. … . I think it’s really gonna be a breath of fresh air on the show.”
Glee has tapped relative newcomers Dean Geyer and Jacob Artist to join the show’s upcoming fourth season, premiering Sept. 13.
Geyer will play Broady Weston, a handsome upperclassman who shows an interest in Rachel at NYADA. Meanwhile, back at McKinley Artist will play Puck’s younger half-brother Jake.
