I am a Gleek. I am an unabashed Gleek. I can pretty much point at each member of that cast and refer it back to someone from my high school yearbook.
So you’re going to see a lot of Glee news on this blog.
There are some more details coming out the episode guest directed by Joss Whedon and guest staring Neil Patrick Harris. According to Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly:
NPH will play Bryan Adam (ha!), a high school glee club nemesis of Will’s (Matthew Morrison) who resurfaces as a board member at William McKinley.“Flashback scenes will show Bryan picking up girls and getting all the cool solos,” reveals the source, “while Will sits off in the sidelines.”
The stage for a present-day rematch is set when Harris’ character announces his intent to cut the arts programs at the school. “Show choir ruined his life, made him feel he could be a star, but all he could do is book Carnival cruises,” explains the insider. “Now he wants vengeance.”
Could this mean a dance off between Doctor Horrible and Mr. Shue? If there’s a Goddess, and if she loves me, there will be! Please! Please! Please!
In other Will Shuster news, it seems now that he’s dumped Terri, Will is going to become a bit of a man-whore. According to Jessalyn Gilsig at EOnline:
“It’s all switching up, Terri was supposed to be so awful. But Terri was driven by love, and it turns out that Will is a whore. Lets just say Terri was right.”
Guess Terri had good reason to feel so insecure all along. That certainly puts a spin on things. It also is going to give Terri an opportunity to pour out her sorrows in song:
“Yay, I’m singing,’ then he told [what song] and I was like ‘What?!’ It was one of the hardest songs I’ve ever sung.”

So, is Will going to get it on with April (Kristin Chenoweth), or is he going to make time with Indina Menzel’s new character? I just hope they don’t mess with Will’s character too much. I love his earnestness and his honesty and I’ll really, really hate him if he breaks Emma’s heart.
And finally, the cast has announced the cities and dates for their summer tour. Unfortunately they *won’t* be coming to Canada.
