Glee star takes the good with the glare

Back on May 18, 2009, Chris Colfer was a regular kid, a talented, singing-and-dancing, Californian teen who had appeared in some community-theatre productions, acted in a short film and recently completed the pilot for a Fox show called Glee, an oddball sort of show whose appeal, if any, was hard to predict.

The next day, thanks in large part to an assist from the juggernaut American Idol, Glee exploded into the American zeitgeist. Colfer's life hasn't been the same since.

Now, now! Before you go drawing mustaches on half of the Glee cast’s yearbook photos because some of the show’s biggest stars won’t be attending Comic-Con next month, perhaps you should read why that’s the case: They weren’t asked to!

A Twentieth Century Fox Television rep explains: “Last year, we brought down Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, and Dianna Agron. Because we have such a large cast and we can’t bring everyone every year, this year we decided to bring down some of the cast who didn’t get to go last summer.

“So this year,” the spokesman continues, “Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale, Mark Salling, Heather Morris, and Naya Rivera will get to experience the convention, as well as co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk.”

And what about Jane Lynch? Comic-Conventioneers sure as hell wanna hear how Sue sees it. According to the rep, she had a scheduling conflict.

So, to sum up, no, the stars aren’t dissing the fans. The producers are just spreading the love. And since Colfer, Riley & Co. will be bringing some never-before-seen clips to their July 25 Q&A, maybe we can do the same. What do you think?


WOW, so Heather and Naya really are officially bumped up to being full-time stars of the show now! Poor Dijon and Harry though... This is why I really wish they'd flesh out the current characters' storylines before bringing in new kids, even though it would certainly make sense that the glee club would gain new members. :(


Several weeks ago Fox Home Video issued a press release officially announcing the September 14th release of Glee - The Complete 1st Season on DVD and high-def Blu-ray Disc. These releases bring you all 22 first-season episodes, plus a ton of bonus material (which we detailed in our report last week). For fans who bought last December's DVD release of Glee - Season 1, Volume 1: Road to the Sectionals, Fox is offering a $10 "GleeBate" (rebate) when you upgrade to The Complete 1st Season on DVD or Blu-ray.

But for fans who already own that Volume 1 set, and only want to buy the "back nine" episodes of the show's first season, Fox has had a plan all along for you. Glee - Season 1, Volume 2: Road to Regionals will also be available on September 14th (the same day as The Complete 1st Season set). This will be a 3-disc package, ONLY available on DVD format (no Blu-ray, just like the Volume 1 release). It won't have any bonus material on it either: it will be a bare-bones release of JUST the 9 episodes to complete the first season of the show: Hell-O, The Power of Madonna, Home, Bad Reputation, Laryngitis, Dream On, Theatricality, Funk, and Journey. Package art is below.

Just as it was for Season 1, Volume 1: Road to the Sectionals, the list price of Glee - Season 1, Volume 2: Road to Regionals will be $39.98 SRP. Buying that title does NOT make you eligible for the $10 "Gleebate" mentioned above; that rebate is only usable with purchase of The Complete 1st Season on either DVD ($59.98 SRP) or Blu-ray ($69.99 SRP). Amazon.com is taking pre-orders right now - at a discount, of course - for the Volume 2 set, and also for The Complete 1st Season on DVD or on Blu-ray Disc.

So I totally failed at posting discussion questions this week... RL kind of ate me. They WILL be up next Tuesday, though!

Have some videos as an apology gift.


Shelf Life has learned that Little, Brown Books for Young Readers has struck a deal with Twentieth Century Fox to publish a line of official Glee-related books. (There are Glee books aplenty out there, but they are all unauthorized.) Little, Brown has multiple book projects in the works for its Glee program; the first to roll off the press will be an original novel called Glee: The Beginning. This prequel to the show, which includes a double-sided poster, will hit stores this August.


..... Really?

Depending on how big a glutton for punishment you are, tonight's "Glee" just might be your favorite yet. The first season has already bared witness to a handful of uber-emotional moments but by all accounts, tonight's will steamroll each and every one.

"Dream On," not only features Neil Patrick Harris, but an Artie-centric storyline that sees the wheelchair bound virtuoso longing for a life on two feet. In anticipation of the waterworks I rang up Kevin McHale to see if he could sneak me any tear duct drying tips.

Sadly, he could not. What Kevin did share was some scoop on the season finale (more tears), what the last year of his life has been like and how "Boy Meets World" factors in to "Glee!"

cut for length. not really any spoilers )


Producers of Glee have confirmed that they have a second Madonna episode of the hit show in the works.

“We’re doing a sequel to the Madonna [episode],” producer Ryan Murphy told Access Hollywood.

On speculation the Material Girl may appear, Murphy commented: “I can’t say. But she’s sort of the muse of our show. She loves the show and has supported it. She gets that the show is about arts education and so she’s very supportive about that.”



The Glee on-again/off-again flirtation with Britney Spears is back in the "on" position this week. At least according to creator Ryan Murphy. The super-producer was in New York yesterday to celebrate the FOX Upfronts (where Glee received prominent placement, including a showing post-Super Bowl), where he revealed that an all-Britney episode is very much on his mind.

"We love Britney, we're talking to Britney. I think you have to be very careful on the show not to do too many tribute episodes. but she certainly has a huge body of work to pull from and the kids grew up with her so that is a consideration, they love her." Sounds good to us! Once again: Puck singing "Womanizer" must happen. (Sorry, Matthew Morrison, but we like the idea of a Britney ep.)

EW spoke with Glee star (and out lesbian) Jane Lynch, who applauded Murphy and Chenoweth’s statements but also believes that Setoodeh is allowed to have his own opinions. “The thing is, actors are actors: You can’t play gay anymore than you can play somebody who’s Catholic,” says Lynch. “Aaron Sorkin wrote a wonderful thing in the Huffington Post. I don’t think you have to slap somebody down for making an opinion that you don’t agree with. But I do think what Kristin and Ryan did was so important, and I’m glad that they said it. It doesn’t mean, ‘Off with [Setoodeh's] head.’ But I’m very glad, and I thought it was very heroic what the two of them did.”
