We’ve heard season 2 of Glee is going to be more character-focused, and not just with the regular cast but also with the recurring cast (and those recently “promoted”, Brittany and Santana, *cough*cough)…and everybody’s favorite “Other Asian”, Mike Chang is certainly no exception. As TV Guide exclusively tells us:
Glee stars Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Harry Shum (Mike Chang) tell me they’ve been having a blast playing with their character’s new romance, the genesis of which we’ll likely see in a flashback. “We’ll learn Mike is a shy guy, which helps account for his first season’s silence,” says Harry, who was originally only meant to appear in the show’s pilot episode. Jenna tells me rumors of the Tina/Mike romance will have reached her former love, Artie, prompting Tina to have an emotional heart to heart with Artie in the season premiere. “You’ll see Artie fighting for Tina, and Tina getting jealous of Artie looking at other girls.” Jenna, who thinks Artie is Tina’s true soul mate, believes it’s only a matter of time before they find their way back to each other.
Speaking of Harry Shum Jr. – he has some more season 2 scoop for us related to his character, Mike Chang. Check out his interview with Hulu for more on the love triangle…and some “surprises” we can look forward to, as well. Oh, and since that “Michael” (Jackson) episode has been hinted at, put in a good word for Harry, will you? *grins*
