Another day, another Glee preview. Fox is certainly promoting the shizz out of the show’s upcoming fourth season and its move to Thursday nights. Already, we’ve seen the first official cast photo, character posters, extended clips and now we have a behind the scenes look. The clip, introduced by Kevin McHale and Darren Criss, highlights all the new key players including Kate Hudson, Jacob Artist, Melissa Benoist, Becca Tobin and most notably Dean Geyer.
Ever since the 26-year-old actor was announced as a new cast member, fans of his have waited with bated breath for the first look. For me, the second I saw pictures of him in a tank top filming with Lea Michele in NYC, I was stoked. The Aussie actor certainly knows how to fill out a top. He’s got muscles for days.
In the newly-released clip, he’s shown practically naked, coming out of the shower with his abs glistening and just wearing a towel. SIGH. I think this shirtless moment will top Chord Overstreet’s introduction on Season 2, and that’s no easy feat. Chord was dayum sexy in that scene. Watch the clip below and decide for yourself.
If you liked watching Kate Hudson sass Lea Michele for being from Ohio in the first Glee Season 4 teaser, then you’re going to love this. Thanks to FOX, we now have an extended look at Hudson’s Cassandra July and Michele’s Rachel Berry’s first interaction on the season premiere, titled “The New Rachel.” The former McKinley High student is enrolled in Cassandra’s Dance 101 class at NYADA. Sufficed to say, she’s not the teacher’s pet.
The dance teacher has no problem holding back, and tells it like it is. She singles out Rachel and calls her Miss David Schwimmer and informs her she can’t stand her stuck-up attitude. Loves it. I’m really looking forward to watching Hudson on the show. I wonder if Sarah Jessica Parker’s character will be a joy to watch as well.
Preceding the clip is some awkward lame banter between The Mindy Project’s Ike Barinholtz and Cory Monteith (Finn). Barinholtz reveals he’s been on the edge of his seat all summer, wondering if Finchel will reunite and how the show will handle simultaneous stories in NYC and Lima. If you’re not interested in any of that, fast forward to the 1:31 mark to catch Kate Hudson’s character tear Rachel a new one.
A few days ago, Ryan Murphy released the first two pieces of artwork for Glee‘s upcoming fourth season. Today, he unleashed 25 new pieces of promotional material including character posters and stills from the show’s season premiere, airing on Thursday, September 13 @ 9pm. Like the previously released official cast photo, there are notable omissions including Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Emma (Jayma Mays). Murphy assured both are back, but inquiring minds want to know why they’ve been MIA thus far.
On the season premiere, titled “The New Rachel“, Kurt assists Will in finding potential recruits for New Directions, since half the members have graduated. Two of the new recruits include Jake Puckerman, Puck’s younger half-brother, played by Jacob Artist and Marley portrayed by Melissa Benoist. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel begins school at NYADA where she meets a handsome upperclassman, named Brody (Dean Geyer). Kate Hudson also begins her eight episode stint as tough dance instructor, Cassandra July. Get your first look at the season premiere below, along with the show’s fresh new faces and returning cast members.
Everyone’s favorite new Twitter user, Ryan Murphy, bestowed a couple of goodies online, making Gleeks universally ecstatic. The Glee co-creator unleashed the show’s first Season 4 poster, along with a cast photo with one notable fan-favorite missing. Is someone not coming back, even though Murphy stated a few months ago that everyone was returning in different capacities?
The first visual features special guest star Kate Hudson motioning the loser “L” in the show’s signature style. With the tagline “Sometimes the Big Apple bites“, it appears things will not be a walk in
Central the park for former New Directions MVP. Someone will definitely not be the teacher’s pet. Rachel Berry better be on her best behavior or in this case, pointed toes since Hudson is playing a dance teacher. Hudson certainly looks like she’s embracing her deliciously mean new character.
It’s a brave new “Glee“. At least that’s what the first Season 4 promo claims. Based on first impression, I think they’re half right. Still the same, Brittany is as “bright” as ever, Sue Sylvester is still throwing jabs at Will and not a single hair is out of place on Blaine’s head. Speaking of the latter, the slicked-hair half of Klaine covers Imagine Dragon’s “It’s Time” and is used in the Fox clip.
As for the new, Kate Hudson is a deliciously bitchy dance teacher, Coach Sylvester is a proud mama, and a “newish” character joins New Directions. The first official image of Hudson as Rachel Berry’s NYADA dance teacher Cassandra July (love the name), was released by Ryan Murphy via Twitter earlier this week. Doesn’t she look FIERCE in the picture above. And PS, who’s that hottie she’s hanging onto? Hudson signed on for six episodes. I can’t wait. Check out the dialogue from her first encounter with NYADA freshman Rachel Berry.
Kate Hudson: “I bet you were a big star back in Iowa.”
Lea Michele: “I’m actually from Ohio.”
Kate Hudson: “Oh, Ohio? Even worse.”
With half of New Directions graduating, some new bodies were needed to McKinley High’s Glee club. The first to be recruited comes in the form of transfer student, Wade Adams aka Unique. As you recall, Unique was played by “The Glee Project” Season 1 runner-up Alex Newell. Looks like, Newell has parlayed his short stint last year into a longer recurring part for Season 4. Congrats. I should also probably mention that Will Schuester is sporting a shorter ‘do. Definitely less Chia Pet’ish. Check it out along with everything else I’ve mentioned below.
With half the New Directions crew graduating last year, Gleeks have wondered what would happen to couples Finchel and Klaine. Getting lost in the mix is the Tina Cohen-Chang and Mike Chang courtship. Would they go via Finchel route and breakup or stay together like Klaine? Given that Kurt didn’t get accepted to NYADA, it’s far easier to stay together living in the same the city. The same can’t be said for Mike who’s off to study in Chicago, while Tina is still in Lima.
In the newest deleted clip released via Ryan Murphy’s Twitter account, the answer to Chang²’s relationship status is answered. Also in the clip is a touching moment between Mike Chang and his parents. His father who has previously not approved of Mike’s goals has a change of heart and gives his son a heartfelt graduation gift. Find out what it is below.
Are you getting tired of all these deleted scenes from Ryan Murphy yet? Well, he promises a lot more are coming our way, so you better get used to it. Someone needs a Twitter intervention. Sure, some of them aren’t the greatest, but for some reason I can’t stop watching them and sharing them with you. It’s “Glee” roadkill ;)
The first clip is from Santana’s coming out episode. In it, she declares her sexuality and relationship with Brittany to her fellow Cheerios. She even warns them, if they don’t like it, she’s “not afraid to cut a bitch.” Oh Santana, God love her. The deleted scene also reveals that Becky once had an affair with Britt before Santana came along.
The second vid is a sappy affair between Kurt and Rachel. It involves a heartfelt message that Rachel wrote in Kurt’s yearbook. Miss Berry calls him her soulmate and thanks him for teaching her to “never apologize for who I am or how I look”. We all know she’s referring to that nose of hers. LOL. Watch both clips below.
The Twitter goodies from Ryan Murphy keep coming. This time around, he has not one, but two deleted scenes from “Glee” to share with fans. Both of which feature handsome guest stars from the show’s history, with one dating all the way back from Season 1.
First up is Grant Gustin. His clip features him belting out the Jackson Five’s “I Want You Back” with the Dalton Academy choir. On hand to watch their performance are Rachel, Kurt, Santana, Blaine and Artie doing some intel for their upcoming showdown at regionals. In the past, the Dalton Academy covers have been great, and this one doesn’t disappoint either.
The second deleted scene harkens back to the Fox show’s freshman year. It takes place in Rachel Berry’s room where her then love interest Jessie St. James (Jonathan Groff) and her perform a duet. Jessie gives Rachel advice on what she should perform for Will Schuester’s “hello” assignment. Check out both clips below.
