GLEE TV - Puck's Tribute & Casting News

I know I have quite a few Puck fans visiting on this blog, so I think it would be fun to run this new song from Mark Salling, paying tribute to his Glee castmates. I found this on, and they had the following to say:
Glee fanatics are crushing hard on Mark Salling, who plays glee club bad boy Puck on this hit show, but as the musician shows in his tribute to cast and crew, he’s just thrilled to be along for the ride.

Salling posted a music video to his official website this week to show his appreciation, even name checking the bulk of the cast in his song. Salling sings: "Matt [Morrison]'s well cast, Lea [Michele] blows me away/I could read a scene with Dianna [Agron] every day," he croons. "Kevin [McHale] is hilarious, Amber [Riley]'s got soul/Chris [Colfer] is a great actor, Naya [Rivera]'s beautiful."

Meanwhile, People Magazine online is running an article that calls into question whether Idina Menzel is making her way to the show. Frankly, I think the producers are just liking the speculation.
Gleeks have been geeking out over the possibility of Broadway star Idina Menzel sweeping her way onto the hit FOX show Glee, but don’t get your broomsticks out just yet.

“I don’t know what I’m doing with Idina yet,” show creator Ryan Murphy told PEOPLE at a Hollywood Radio and Television Society panel on Wednesday. “I just met with her once. It sort of got leaked, but I haven’t plotted it out yet.”

Menzel, who originated the role of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West in the hit Broadway musical Wicked, and Lea Michele, the actress who plays Rachel Berry on Glee and sang Wicked’s signature number “Defying Gravity,” look a lot alike, a fact not lost on Menzel nor her husband, Private Practice star Taye Diggs, who recently said, “We knew that [resemblance] existed far, far before the TV world did.” That resemblance has some hoping the Tony-winner will play the biological mother of Rachel, who is the proud daughter of two gay dads.

While fans will have to wait to see what, if anything, Murphy comes up with, Glee will ease on down the road for Kristin Chenoweth, who played Glinda the Good Witch in Wicked. Chenoweth will return as former McKinley High glee club star April Rhodes in the spring.

“I know Kristin has a huge episode,” Murphy said. “She’s coming back because we write that for her, but there are some other people coming that I can’t say, but they are big music people, so I’m very excited!”

What do you all think?


  1. The producers of Glee have hit the jackpot with this show. My only fear is that they will stick Glee on Friday night or otherwise kill it, not understanding its potential.

    Did you know the other day on the Jay Leno show that the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints, upon being asked if he secretly loved a TV program that he didn't want anyone to know about, said that he loved Glee? How cool it that!

  2. Larry, Yes, they have definitely hit it bigtime.

  3. Drew Brees is a Glee fan, love it!
