'Glee': Watch more of Kate Hudson as Rachel's mean dance teacher

Rachel Berry, you’re not in Ohio anymore.

On the upcoming season of Glee, the one-time star of the New Directions is in for a rude awakening when she gets started at NYADA in New York. In a recently released season 4 promo for the Fox musical show, fans got a brief taste of Kate Hudson’s no-nonsense, say-it-like it is dance teacher. Now a full clip from Rachel’s Dance 101 class has hit the web. Bonus: An intro with Cory Monteith, plus Ike Barinholtz of new Fox show The Mindy Project. Check it out below.

Ryan Murphy tweets new 'Glee' posters -- but where's Quinn?

Another day, another Gleeful bit of scoop from Ryan Murphy’s Twitter. The busiest man in show business has whetted fan appetites with a pair of new posters for his musical dramedy’s fourth season.

The first evokes Glee posters of old and focuses on Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), who’s due to discover that NYADA can be just as icy as the halls of McKinley High. Only this time, the frost isn’t coming from mean-girl cheerleaders — but from her very own dance teacher.

The second is a group shot that features both new and returning cast members, with one glaring exception: Dianna Agron’s Quinn is nowhere to be found. And while the poster includes pointed signs for the various cities where McKinley’s alumni are now living — New York, Los Angeles, Lima, St. Louis — there’s no arrow reading “New Haven,” where Quinn is attending college. Does this mean the former Cheerio captain is off the show for good?

Not so fast, says Murphy: “Gleeks, please relax,” he tweeted shortly after releasing the second poster. “Dianna is still on the show. We love her and have great plans for Quinn. #QuinnFabrayLives.” Unless she keeps texting and driving, of course.

Check out large versions of both posters below.

New 'Glee' promo: See Kate Hudson's nasty dance teacher in action

This September, school is back in session — even though the class of 2012 has moved on. (Well, mostly.)

Fox just released a new trailer for Glee‘s fourth season — and while it’s only a scant 31 seconds long, it holds plenty of hints for what’s in store for McKinley’s finest. A newly transported Rachel is doing her best to succeed at NYADA, despite snide comments from mean dance teacher Cassandra July (Kate Hudson); Sue has apparently given birth, or is at least holding someone else’s baby; and Brittany is being Brittany, mistaking a New Directions member for… well, we won’t ruin the joke. For all this, plus a snippet of Darren Criss’s rendition of “It’s Time” by Imagine Dragons, watch the full clip for yourself:

winning,” he told EW this morning. But viewers couldn’t count out the Miami native, who impressed Ryan Murphy with his consistent performances and the fact that he was, as casting director Robert Ulrich said, “the best actor” in the group.

After a last-chance performance of “I’ll Be” — not to mention a surprise poem reading — a jubilant Jenner walked away with the seven-episode arc on the fourth season of the show. Jenner got on the phone with EW this morning to talk about his lack of sleep, why he read a poem, and what he hopes his Glee character gets to do next season (Watch out, Brittany/Santana shippers!)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations!
BLAKE JENNER: I’m so excited, you have no idea. I’m so excited, and so thankful.

Did you sleep at all last night?
I didn’t sleep at all last night. I was talking to family and friends, both in L.A. and also in Miami, my hometown. I honestly got probably an hour and a half of sleep last night, but I’m still so stoked — I don’t even feel tired at all. The excitement is so unbelievable. READ FULL STORY

FIRST LOOK: 'Glee' Emmy nominee Dot-Marie Jones visits 'The Exes' -- EXCLUSIVE

Though Dot-Marie Jones found her calling card as Coach Shannon Beiste on Glee, she has been in the biz for more than two decades. Jones, a 15-time world arm wrestling champion, has found a steady stream of work by embracing her imposing stature. “You can’t hide 6’3″,” she says. “I’m not going to act like I’m a 5’2″ woman that’s 105 pounds. I couldn’t be under 200 pounds if I were dead and hollow.” But, as seen in the above picture, she may have found her match in Kristen Johnston, the six-foot-tall star of The Exes. The two ladies will go toe-to-toe (and cheek-to-cheek) in the Aug. 22 episode of the TV Land sitcom. Below, get a closer of look of Jones and Johnston’s face-off, then see what the two-time Emmy nominee has to say about her return to McKinley High and the red carpet.

Ryan Murphy tweets deleted Tina/Mike scene; Gleeks can commence freaking out -- VIDEO

Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) is quite the high-impact tweeter.

Since joining the social networking site just two weeks ago, the showrunner has sent Gleeks’ hearts aflutter with a deleted Kurt/Blaine scene, as well as American Horror Story scoop and his secret wishes (Sample tweet: “A big GLEE goal this year: a Madonna/Elton John mashup. #gayhatchetburying”).

This afternoon, he dropped another present for Glee fans: A deleted Mike/Tina scene that has some PDA(!) and a heart-to-heart with Mike’s parents. For fans who were disappointed with the duo’s lack of screen time this season, Murphy feels your pain. “One of the many heart-breaking losses when an episode is 15 minutes long. #criminallyneglectedcouples” he tweeted along with the video.

Check out the scene below — and be prepared to tear up: READ FULL STORY

'Glee Project' exit shocker: Double elimination! 'Some people might not like it, but that's me'

The penultimate episode of The Glee Project was last night, so some surprises should have been expected. But coming off last season’s ‘everybody wins something!’ finale, last night’s twist was anything but a win-win. At the last-minute, Ryan Murphy decided to cut two contestants instead of one, sending just three to duke it out for the ultimate prize next week. After last-chance performances from all five, 18-year-old Lily Mae Harrington and 18-year-old Michael Weisman both found themselves singing the eliminated castoff song, “Keep Holding On,” as the credits rolled.

EW chatted up both Lily and Michael together on the phone today to find out about their version of Murphy’s Law, Michael’s nerdy side finally coming out, and whether Lily regrets anything she said on the show (and you won’t believe her new roommate!).

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Quite a surprise last night! On the show, Blake said that the most likely scenario was all five of you guys going to the finale. Did  you all talk at all about how you thought the end game would be?
Michael: Oh yeah. We came up with every possible permutation, except the one that actually happened. READ FULL STORY

Attention, gleeks! Ryan Murphy tweets deleted Kurt/Blaine scene

It’s Christmas in August!

For three days, Ryan Murphy has been littering his brand new Twitter page with photos, videos, and scoop about American Horror Story, NBC’s upcoming comedy The New Normal, and Glee (“You know who I want as BLAINE’s mom? Catherine Zeta-Jones!”). But among this bounty, there’s one tidbit that any Murphy fan will find particularly swoon-worthy: a deleted Kurt/Blaine scene from Glee‘s most recent holiday episode.

The clip — known among gleeks as “The Box Scene” — shows McKinley High’s cutest couple discussing December’s auction of Elizabeth Taylor’s treasures. Their chat naturally leads to an exchange of jewelry — albeit not the type that sparkles like white diamonds. See for yourself, and prepare for your heart to grow three sizes:

'The Glee Project' exit Q&A: 'I absolutely thought that Michael should have been in my place'

With just six contestants left, it was inevitable the eliminations were going to start feeling pretty shocking on The Glee Project. But last night, during Romanticality week, the bottom three threw everyone for a loop: Typical frontrunners Blake, Aylin and Shanna found out that one of them would be going home, and perpetual last-chance performer Michael lived to see another day.  Despite being the only one of the three who had never before sung for Ryan Murphy for a last chance, one performance of “Stronger” later and 22-year-old Shanna Henderson was The Glee Project’s latest causality.

Henderson got on the phone with EW to talk about her bottom three surprise, why she doesn’t regret her comments to Ryan Murphy about Michael, and the big difference between her and Aylin.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: I was shocked you went home!
SHANNA HENDERSON: I was shocked at the moment. I wasn’t shocked I went home, but I was shocked at the combination of the bottom three. READ FULL STORY

Ryan Murphy joins Twitter, posts 'Glee' photo

Okay, this could be either be fun or turn into a helluva hot mess: Uber-writer/producer Ryan Murphy has joined Twitter. Describing himself simply as “showrunner of American Horror Story, Glee and The New Normal,” Murphy’s first tweet today promised “exclusive details” on his shows.

He also posted a shot from the Glee set featuring guest star Kate Hudson, who will play a mentor-type to Rachel (Lea Michele) in the coming season.

By Monday afternoon, Murphy had already amassed 33k followers, not to mention a few defenders who felt the need to protect the newest member of the Twitterverse. This, from Corey Supporter: “Gleeks, I please ask that you do NOT send hate to Ryan Murphy. Just be grateful that he created the show that you love so much.”

Meanwhile, GLEEmazing said this: “Now that Ryan Murphy is on Twitter, let’s get one thing straight… Yeah you have the chance to complain to him, but do it respectfully?”

 

 

'Glee' scoop: Fox boss Kevin Reilly talks season four, 'I thought about splitting the season down the middle, half in New York and half in Ohio'

Mike Yarish/Fox

Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly took to the stage today at TCA in Beverly Hills to talk season four of Glee and the format, now that the series will be cutting back and forth from New York and Ohio. “I’m very happy with how seamless it is,” Reilly told the audience of journalists at TCA. “There’s going to be thematic linkages between the two.”

Reilly also reiterated that Gleeks will still see characters that have graduated, like Mercedes and Quinn. “Although we have not severed relationships with everyone, we’re not servicing that large of a tapestry of characters,” Reilly admitted. “We have fresh faces [Fox today announced new stars Jacob Artist, who will play Puck's half-brother, and Dean Geyer, who will play a NYADA student and possible love interest for Rachel]. This is the natural mirror of real life. People graduate and new faces come in. This is set in a small town in Ohio. Just as in real life people tend not to stray too far away from that. Some settle down, some go away, they come back for holiday and reunions. The idea is to keep that relationship  …It’s fun for  the audience –who’s going to show up when? We’ll have a core of some of the returning characters and new characters and the we’re going to be servicing every week and then limited deals with some of the other actors who’ll be kind of joining here and there throughout the season. I think it’s going to be a breath of fresh air for the show.
