GLEE TV - Casting News December 2009

UPDATE - Next Episode April 12, 2010

In an earlier report, I mentioned that Jonathan Groff, who had co-starred with Lea Michele on Broadway in Spring Awakening, is joining the cast as the singer in Vocal Adrenaline, mentioned at the end of the fall finale as the main competition for our Glee kids. it was said he will be in 5 or 6 of the remaining nine shows of the season, starting in April 12. I was luck enough to see both Jonathan and Lea on Broadway, and they were not only fantastic, but they had great chemistry together. Might Rachel be getting a new love interest on Glee?

Now we have even more news to give you. The Hollywood Reporter released the talented Idina Menzel will be joining the cast as the adviser of Vocal Adrenaline, and will be appearing in all nine of the remaining episodes. Menzel won a Tony for her performance in Wicked on Broadway, and rave reviews for her lead role in the Chess in Concert opposite Josh Groban, so she is no stranger to hit shows. And in real life, she is married to the amazingly gorgeous Taye Diggs,and in fact gave birth to a handsome son 3 months ago. With parents like Idina and Taye, that child can't help but be gorgeous and gifted.


  1. I can't believe we have to wait until May for more Glee! But the casting news is great, but ironic since Defying Gravity was part of the plt line this fall.

  2. Stephen, I hear you. Five freakin' months! There was some fan talk about bringing on Idina as Rachel's birth mother, which would have been amusing....

  3. I've been saying all along that Rachel is a Little Idina, and now we'll get the real thing.

  4. Is it TMI to say that when I saw your headline mentioned GLEE my nips got hard?

  5. Bob, I can't wait, either! Who knows, we still have no idea who is Rachel's birth mother, right?

    Larry, Perhaps it is TMI, but exciting too!
