“I’m so excited. I can’t wait to [see] everyone at work. I’m so excited to see Amber [Riley]. I’m so excited to Mark [Salling] and Harry [Shum Jr.] and Dianna [Agron] and Heather [Morris]. I think Kristen Chenoweth is coming back. I’m trying so hard to get Jonathan Groff to come back for an episode. It’s gonna be great… I think the 100th episode is going to be very emotional, obviously, surrounded by the family. It’s like we can do anything together.”—Lea Michele talking about Glee’s 100th episode
“There were some performances that were so difficult and I see it happening. I see myself putting on those goulashes again to do ‘Singing in the Rain. And I’m like ‘Oh my god, please don’t make us do that again!’ We were so cold, we were freezing.
If I could do anything again, the thing is that some of them are very emotional but I’m the kind of person I don’t run away from my feelings, I don’t run from things that scare me. I want to feel all the emotion and so to be surrounded by the cast and sing something like [Queen’s] ‘Somebody to Love.’ As hard as that might be, I think that, it just brings back some of the most amazing memories of someone [Cory Monteith, who died in July] who we loved so much and it’s numbers like that I hope we do.”—Lea Michele talking about Glee’s 100th episode
Scoop: Glee Casts Skylar Astin in 'Explosive' Role
Skylar Astin has booked a guest stint on Glee in a role that will likely draw comparisons to the character he played in last year’s big-screen musical-comedy hit.
According to sources, the actor-singer — who’s currently starring in TBS’ rookie sitcom Ground Floor — will play Jean-Baptiste, the lead singer of Throat Explosion (aka New Directions’ competition at Nationals).
As confirmed by Darren Criss’ Instagram account (see photo, above), Astin’s episode is currently in production and is slated to air in March.
