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.
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.
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 »
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:
Nominations for the 64th Annual Emmy Awards were announced this morning and stars took to Twitter and gave statements to announce their delight and gratitude.
Lena Dunham, Girls (best comedy actress and outstanding writing for a comedy)
”I have had the shriekiest morning of my life. I literally feel like I got asked to the prom and engaged and told I was going to the moon all in one day. Not to be too dramatic.” via AP
Damian Lewis, Homeland (outstanding lead actor in a drama)
“Right now I just have mimosas sort of swimming around in front of my eyes but I haven’t actually managed to get a hold of one, so I think I need to go and put that right, and maybe a little champagne brunch. I have my family with me and my two small children, so as long as I can drink alcohol and keep them alive for the remainder of the day, that will be a job well done.” via AP
Show creator Matthew Weiner, Mad Men (best writing for a drama)
”It’s insane. I can’t believe it. And we’re the show that’s been there, too. That’s weird, too. I can’t believe we are on the air.” via AP
Executive producer Christopher Lloyd, Modern Family (best comedy)
“I was a little nervous, and then I walked past my phone this morning and noticed it blinking. I had a text from Julie Bowen that said ‘wowie,’ so I thought it can’t be that bad. We’re at least at a ‘wowie’-level of excitement here. … If you put a numerical value on that, a ‘wow’ would be an eight or a nine, and ‘wowie’ is probably in the teens.” via AP
Executive producer Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad (best drama)
“I was lying in bed and couldn’t sleep and feeling foolish for not being able to. I’m lying there thinking it feels so good to get nominated, I’m hoping this isn’t the year it all ends. You never know. Is this the year we’re gonna get shut out? A little bit of hope can drive you crazy. It never gets old. You never get tired of waking up to news like this.” via AP
Giancarlo Esposito, Breaking Bad (best supporting actor, drama)
“I really am flying. I know there are a lot of wonderful and profound actors out there who really do focus on their work so I know how special this moment is for me because I’ve seen them, I’ve watched them, I respect them and they all walk through it, they put their heart and soul into everything that they do and so I look at them and I am really, really honored to be regarded in the same vein because that’s how I work. I’m on cloud nine.” via AP
The political world is all a Twitter today, debating whether Vice President Joe Biden actually did endorse gay marriage on NBC’s Meet the Press this morning when he said he was “absolutely comfortable with…men marrying men, and women marrying women.” (If he did, the statement is beyond the Obama Administration’s stated policy opposing gay marriage, but supporting equal marriage rights for same-sex couples.) What is crystal clear, though, is Biden’s endorsement of NBC’s Will & Grace as one of the biggest reasons American public opinion has moved steadily in the direction of approving same-sex nuptials.
“When things really began to change is when the social culture changes,” Biden told Meet the Press host David Gregory. “I think Will & Grace probably did more to educate the American public than almost anybody’s ever done so far. People fear that which is different. Now they’re beginning to understand.” READ FULL STORY »
