You may have heard that Finn (Cory Monteith) will be taking over the glee club for Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) while he’s gone. What you may not know is that Finn just may drag the New Directions back down from top dogs to underdogs.
“We sort of shake up the glee club a little bit,” teases exec producer Brad Falchuk. “What always works on this show is when people are the underdogs. So, how do we make [New Directions] underdogs again? Well, obviously, you clear out a lot of the people who were the top dogs. But also you have a new person coaching them going into Sectionals that doesn’t know what he’s doing. This is all new to him. It seemed like a way to freshen up things a little bit.”
Come on, now. Finn was a New Directions member himself, once. He has to know a little bit about what he’s doing, right?? How much do you think Finn will flounder (and butt up against Sue) before he finds his glee club coaching footing?
