No sirree, as Jessalyn Gilsig (Terri) puts it herself, “They’re children!” So she’s saying her rumored new love interest in Glee is NOT going to be a student (sorry, Puck). I’m with Zap2It’s Marisa Roffman – I’m thinking a rebound romance with Ken (Patrick Gallagher) would be hilarious. But as we learned today from The Ausiello Files, it is most definitely not Finn, although co-creator Ryan Murphy does confirm that he and former Mrs. Schue will have a (“strictly platonic”) cool relationship coming up:
“Finn gets a job at Sheets & Things,” explains Murphy of the chain store where Will’s soon-to-be ex-wife works. “He is very down on himself, and Terri realizes that she was not very supportive of her husband and she sees a lot of him in Finn.
“She met Will at 16,” he reminds us, “so she sees a way to redemption…a way to redo that relationship in a positive way [by acting] almost as Finn’s guardian angel, his fairy godmother. She gives him proper moral advice. I liked seeing Jessalyn [Gilsig] and Cory [Monteith] work together.”
So much so that Murphy says the story will “will carry into season 2.” A romance, however, is not in the cards. “I don’t want to do that,” he says. “And I don’t think our audience would go for that. We just want to keep it a friendship.”
Speaking of Zap2It…here’s that interview with Jessalyn Gilsig, about what’s coming up for crazy Terri. Oh, yes, she’ll be there. Even if she’s not in the script, heh-heh:
