Episode VIII: A Gleeky Star Wars Christmas?

Chewbacca at Mckinley

A long time ago, in a galaxy state far, far away…

Chewbacca visits Lima, Ohio?

As a huge Star Wars fan, I was excited to check my GLEEonFOX Twitter list and find a Twitpic from Chord Overstreet revealing Chewbacca as the special guest for Season 3′s Christmas episode. Soon after Chord’s twitpic of Chewie in the middle of the Choir Room hit the web, the rest of the cast took to their Twitter’s to broadcast their excitement.

For Kevin McHale, Dianna Agron, and Jenna Ushkowitz the visit greatly impacted their lives.

Kevin tweeted:

So far this has been the best day ever.

Dianna, on the other hand, tweeted:

OK. Day made. Week made, actually.

Jenna took it one step further by saying it:

made my life!

Damian McGinty was equally excited and showed his geekier side:

Just had a serious fan boy moment this morning with @chordoverstreet …can’t believe who i just met!! @druidDUDE is in heaven!!

Check out Chewbacca’s photos with Kevin, Harry, Dianna, Chris, Jenna, and Mark as well as this awesome group photo.

What do you think Chewie is doing in the choir room? How are the writers going to be able to pull it off? Post your theories below!

Watch Glee’s Adele Mash-Up

Posted by Mary on Nov-10-2011 under Amber Riley, Cast & Crew, Glee Episode Previews, Media, Naya Rivera, News, Videos

After much hype, the performance of the Adele mash-up that features songs “Rumor Has It” and “Someone Like You” was released earlier today on YouTube. All I can say is wow.

The performance, sung by Amber Riley and Naya Rivera, was the 300th performance done on Glee! Writer Ali Adler tweeted earlier that what happens after the performance will be surprising! I personally think this is easily the best song Glee has ever done!

What are your thoughts? Sound off in the comments!

Chord Overstreet Returns to the Studio!

Chord OverstreetHe’s baaack! Cory Monteith went to the recording studio today to record some songs for an upcoming episode, and he was greeted by a familiar face, non other than Trouty Mouth himself, Chord Overstreet! He tweeted the photo on the left, welcoming the star back.

As we previously posted, Michael Ausiello of TV Line recently reported that Sam will be back in December, just in time for Sectionals!

Are you excited for Trouty Mouth’s return and his upcoming song!? We definitely are!

“Pot O’ Gold” Sneak Peek Video!

We are so close! After surviving three grueling weeks without our beloved show, only a few more days seperate us from being reunited with our favorite TV show, and it feels so good! To hold us over, Fox posted a new video introducing us to Rory Flanagan, the foreign exchange student played by The Glee Project winner Damian McGinty.

In the video, Damian discusses his time on The Glee Project, singing in front of the cast for the first time, and working on the show, which he says is “a dream.”

We already know that Rory is a foreign exchange student living with Brittany and that causes some tension between the Irishman and Santana. It’s safe to say that we can get ready for some hilarious one-liners from the queen of mean.

We are so excited for Tuesday! Are you excited for Damian’s arrival?

Naya Rivera Lends her Voice to New GLAAD PSA

Posted by Mary on Oct-17-2011 under Cast & Crew, Media, Naya Rivera, Videos

Remember when Naya Rivera hosted the GLAAD Awards back in May? While there, she lent her voice to a new PSA for GLAAD, the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, which was released today. She is accompanied by other LGBT activists and supporters such as Chaz Bono, the cast of Pretty Little Liars, and Vinny from The Jersey Shore, asking those watching to support LGBT individuals. GLAAD is a national organization that works on portraying LGBT individuals in a positive light in the entertainment industry. You can watch the PSA below.

What are your thoughts on the PSA? What organizations would you want the Glee cast to partake in?

Rory Gets Roughed Up in Episode 4

Seems like Rory’s getting into some trouble upon his entry into McKinley! Damien McGinty’s character will not be welcomed to the halls of McKinley, according to a new photo released by Entertainment Weekly.

The photo shows McGinty’s character being shoved into a locker by the hockey players and judging by his face, he is certainly scared.

In August, McGinty spoke of his character saying that he will play a foreign exchange student that Brittany mistakes as a leprechaun.

What do you think about Rory?  Are you excited for his arc on Glee?

Posted by Bonnie on Oct-03-2011 under Glee Episode Spoilers, Harry Shum, Interviews, Media, News, Videos

As most of you already know, this Tuesday’s episode “Asian F” features a storyline that showcases our favorite dancer-not-singer, Mike Chang.

First Look at Damian’s Character, Rory!

Posted by Tinkers on Sep-28-2011 under Glee Episode Previews, Glee Episode Spoilers, Media, News, Pictures

The first pictures of Glee Project winner Damian McGinty‘s character, an Irish exchange student named Rory Flanagan, have popped up on TV Guide! This will be the first of his seven-episode arc, beginning November 1st.

“I am having the time of my life,” he reports. “Rory is living with Brittany, who thinks he is her own personal leprechaun only she can see. “ Sounds like Brittany alright!

Although he will receive an overall warm welcome, not everyone will be pleased with this newbie. “He does a little falsetto in his first song, and Kurt did not like that because Kurt’s the soprano of the group and doesn’t want that taken from him,” says Chris Colfer. At least they’ll still have a soprano when Kurt graduates, right?

Meanwhile, in lesbi-land, Santana (Naya Rivera) “quietly is in love with Brittany,” says Damian, “so she doesn’t like Rory because he also has a thing for Brittany.” Sounds like trouble for Brittana! “We just did a fun scene in Brittany’s bedroom,” says Damian.

So, what do you think of Damian’s character? Are you excited to see his arc? Post in the comments!

Emma Pillsbury’s Parents Cast

Posted by Laura on Sep-18-2011 under Cast & Crew, Jayma Mays, News, Pictures, Random, Ryan Murphy

First Mike Chang, now Emma. It seems to be a parent parade over at Glee this season, with the announcement that the Changs are not the only family members that will be making an appearance. Don Most and Valerie Mahaffey have been cast as Rose and Rusty Pillsbury, parents of our favourite, quirky, guidance counselor, Emma Pillsbury.

Many of you may recognise Mahaffey from her stint on ABC’s Desperate Housewives where she played Orson’s estranged wife, Alma and any Happy Days fans will no doubt remember Most for his role as practical joker, Ralph Malph.

Hopefully these new parental casting revelations are just the first of many to come.

The real question now is, what brings the Pillsburys to town? Any guesses?
