"We've loved Glee ever since it was a pilot script."
Guess we Gleeks have that in common with Fox President Kevin Reilly. I know I do. And that love has paid off because it has just been announced that Glee is indeed renewed for a second season. Cel-e-brate good times! (You know the cast of Glee definitely is).
The cast and crew also has three new roles to fill, come second season. According to Fox, there will also be a nationwide open casting call in February, for both amateurs and pros alike (between the ages of 16 and 26). The details will be coming our way soon, but in the meantime, if you're a budding/aspiring actor or actress, you might want to check this out:
Fox also announced that a nationwide open casting call will commence in February to fill three new roles that are being added in the second season. "Anybody and everybody now has a chance to be on a show about talented underdogs," said executive producer Ryan Murphy. "No matter who you are—a Broadway talent or a struggling singing waiter with a dream in the Midwest—you now have an opportunity to make that dream come true by posting your talent video and showing us what you can do."
Oh, and that rumor about Adam Lambert as a guest star? Yeah, not so much anymore. But spoiler news has it that Olivia Newton-John will be guest-starring in the second season of Glee this spring, to sing "Let's Get Physical" with Jane Lynch (Sue song alert!).
Anybody planning on "showing Ryan Murphy what you can do"? Heh.
