Gleeks were out in full force at Comic-Con on Sunday, to catch a glimpse of their favorite Glee stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera. The panel opened with a lengthy montage chronicling the impact of the show regarding gay issues, especially in regards to helping teens comes to terms with who they are, and the many accolades and awards presented to the cast. The entire cast returns for Season 4, but the focus of the show will expand beyond McKinley High School and Ohio, as the show follows all the seniors who graduated while they tackle life in the real world.
Writer Ian Brennan and actress Lea Michele spoke with press, prior to the panel, to shed some light on what fans can expect in Season 4. Check out what they had to say after the jump.
With the massive success of Glee, it was only a matter of time before creator Ryan Murphy brought a musical to the big screen. Deadline reports that Murphy has lined up Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce, and Andy Samberg to star in the musical comedy One Hit Wonders. Murphy will direct and co-write the script with his Glee co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. The story “centers on three singers (Paltrow, Witherspoon, and Diaz) who each scored a top hit song in the 1990s before watching their careers go down the drain, and then team up to form a super-group.” Samberg, in addition to co-starring, will reportedly write music for the film with his The Lonely Island partners Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer.
Hit the jump for my thoughts on the project.
