What The Cast Will Be Doing Now

The Glee cast is so so so so so talented. There’s literally no argument against this. We had the pleasure of seeing some of them do some new things during Glee, and that was awesome. With Glee over now (I’m still sad) the cast is completely free to start new projects and be a part of new things. Share their talent with more people! As much as I will forever love them on Glee and I will forever know them as the characters they played, I am excited to see them move on and do magnificent things. For the past few weeks I’ve been compiling this masterlist of what the whole cast (literally, everyone!) has coming in the foreseeable future. Some of this information is from IMBD, so it could be wrong. Don’t sue me if it is! Most of it seems legit and I did my best to cross-reference though. Keep an eye on the cast’s twitter for more news. So let’s find out what the cast will be doing now:

Darren Criss: He’s staring in Hedwig And The Angry Inch on Broadway this summer! I wrote about that news here if you missed it. His run is from April 29th to July 19th. Hopefully after that, we’ll finally get an album from him (you know, the one he was working on when he did his mini-tour two years ago?).

Matthew Morrison: As I previously reported as well, Matthew will be on Broadway in Finding Neverland. He’ll also be in an upcoming movie called Tulip Fever, but he isn’t a main character and there are very little details on this movie. Lastly, he’ll be in a movie called After The Reality, also set for some time in 2015, but there is a lack of info on that too.

Lea Michele: Lea will be in the Glee creators’ new show Scream Queens, which has already begun filming. She’s also got her second book coming out in October 7th and it’s called ‘You First’, so that should be neat. Lastly, Lea is apparently going to be in a movie with Kate Upton that’ll be called Layover and filming starts at the end of April. I don’t know how she’s managing that with Scream Queens but I guess it’s Lea and she can do it all!

Chris Colfer: Chris is busy writing as he has TLOS4 coming out on July 7th and his kids picture book The Curvy Tree coming October 27th. I think he’s got one or two more TLOS coming, so those need to be written. Chris will also be in a biopic about Noel Coward, playing Noel, so we’ll hear him sing a bit, hopefully. Filming for that hasn’t even started so it’ll be a while until we see it all. He’ll also be voicing a character in an animated movie called Robodog and appearing on Hot In Cleveland again.

Naya Rivera: First off, Naya is recently pregnant so her new job will be a mother, which is crazy exciting! She’ll also have a recurring role on the show Devious Maids, which airs on Lifetime. She’s already begun filming.

Heather Morris: Aside from being a new mother as well, she’s filmed/filming several small movies. Folk Hero And Funny Guy and Most Likely To Die are the two where she has starring roles, and the TV movie Romantically Speaking, she is just in the cast.

Melissa Benoist: She’s following the likes of Grant Gustin and staring in a DC superhero show. She’ll be playing Supergirl in the upcoming CBS show Supergirl. Filming for this just began and it’ll air this fall. (Also Jeremy Jordan is in the show so take that as you will).

Blake Jenner: He’s starring in an upcoming film called That’s What I’m Talking About.

Amber Riley: She’s got an album in the works, but there are no details on its release date.

Chord Overstreet: He has a small role in a movie called Fourth Man Out and I thiiiiink he may be working on some music too.

Jane Lynch: Jane is in the movie After The Reality with Matt, but she’s not lead. She is, however, lead in a new CBS show called ‘Angel From Hell’. She is also continuing to host Hollywood Game Night which just started filming again. S3 will air on July 7th at 10. Lastly, Jane is doing a small comedy tour that’s already in progress but will go on for another month.

Becca Tobin: She’s doing a stint on NCIS:LA as a computer hacker.  An episode has already aired, but I don’t know how many more will. Also her fashion blog http://www.junemoss.com/ is growing.

Alex Newell: He was signed to make an album, but I don’t know what the status is on that.

Dianna Agron: Dianna loves doing no-name small movies that never hit theaters. I feel bad for diehard fans because I’m sure tracking down these movies for viewing isn’t easy. Dianna has filmed and is filming the following movies: A Conspiracy On Jekyll Island, Headlock, Bare and Tumbledown. She is also starring in McQueen, a play about Alexander McQueen the fashion legend. It starts May 12th in NYC.

Kevin McHale: Kevin was in the movie Boyhood (about male choirs so more singing, yay!) that premiered at TIFF late last year, but it’s not out yet. I think it’ll be in select theaters in the next few months. Kevin will also be in a movie called They Might Be Kennedys with Aaron Tveit, but filming hasn’t started. Lastly, Kevin hosts a comedy TV show in Britain called Virtually Famous, which finished its first season and soon will begin its second.

Harry Shum Jr: Harry will be in two upcoming small movies, Fire City and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend. He’ll also be returning as a judge on Season 2 of Fake Off on True TV.

Jayma Mays: Jayma is voicing a cat in the animated TV series The Adventures Of Puss And Boots that is running n Netflix. She’ll also apparently be in the Netflix show coming this summer called Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp, which has a pretty cool cast (the same people from the movie Wet Hot American Summer, though that movie sucked IMO).

Marshall Williams: He has a role in a movie called Headcase.

Iqbal Theba: He will have a small role in upcoming HBO show The Brink as well as a small role in a movie called The Tiger Hunter.

Max Adler: He was on a recurring role on the show Switched At Birth, but I don’t know if that is still happening. He’s also going to have a lead role in a small movie by the name of The Binding and a smaller role in The Midnight Man.

Ashley Fink: She’ll be in an upcoming webshow called Zombie Basement

Damien McGinty: He’s been doing a bit of touring and working on his music career.

Samuel Larsen: Samuel will be starring in a small film called Recovery and a film called The Remains. He also has a small role in a movie that is either called Claire’s Cambodia or The Breakup Girl (…idk). He’s also always working on new music.

Vanessa Lengies: She has a small upcoming role in a Zefron movie called We Are Your Friends but I don’t know when it is coming out.

Jonathan Groff: Jon had a starring role in the HBO show Looking that recently got cancelled (but it will have a closing movie), as well as a large role in an upcoming webshow called O.T.P. (air date not known). He’s also presently doing an off-broadway run of Hamilton as King George.

Mark Salling: Apparently he’s been working on his own TV show that he’s trying to get picked up. Considering that very little information is known about this, I doubt it’ll exist this fall.

Jenna Uskowitz: She was recently the executive producer on a small indie movie called Twinsters and she said she wants to produce again, but so far there’s nothing in progress.

Mike O’Malley: Mike has a role in a movie called Concussion and it may be out at Christmas.

Romy Rosemont: She’ll be in a couple episodes of Silicon Valley and Grimm and a role in a movie called Welcome To Happiness

Jacob Artist:

Laura Dreyfuss:

Noah Guthrie: More music making? Maybe?

Billy Lewis Jr: Also maybe more music?

Samantha Marie Ware:

I have no information on the last few, just like how I have little info on some people. Maybe they’re just taking a break. Like I said, keep an eye on their Twitters for news. So overall, the cast seems to have no troubles finding new jobs. I can’t wait for some of their projects. Some of them could become huge A-list celebs and I’ll be so proud to say that I supported them from the start by loving Glee. I wish them the best of luck!

This has been my second last post. My very last post will be up in a few days so keep an eye out!

Are These Last Songs Of Glee A ‘Dream[s] Come True’?

Guys. Yes. These songs I have here are the last songs from Glee. I mean, there are probably a bunch of songs that were recorded but cut from episodes, but I don’t know if we’ll ever hear them. So for now, these are the last songs. It’s so weird to think about this. Glee will never have new songs. No longer will we be able to hear a song on the radio and wonder if Glee will ever cover it….the answer will be no. I’m dying a little inside. Like, do you know how many times I raced home from school to hear and blog the new songs? Too many. Anyways, here are the songs from the very last episode, 6×13, called ‘Dreams Come True’.  The episode that’ll air right before it, ‘2009’ released its songs early, so I posted them last week, but you can hear them here if you missed it. So now, prepare yourselves and take a listen to the last songs Glee has to offer.

‘Daydream Believer’ (by The Monkees) sung by Kurt and Blaine
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113793233766/daydream-believer-glee-cast-version
YESSS Klaine duet to end it off! Is it the song I would have picked for them? Nah. Do I like it? Yeah. It’s fun and catchy and the whole bit about homecoming queen is great because Kurt was the Prom Queen in S2. However, I think Blaine should have sung that line about being a knight because he was a knight to Kurt. Alsoooooo there’s that bit at the end that sounds like children…..are we going to see Klaine with kids? Because I have a mighty need to see that. 😀 And as a last comment, the first few notes of this song remind me of the first few notes of The Office theme song with the piano. I enjoyed that.

‘Someday We’ll Be Together’ (by Diana Ross And The Supremes) sung by Mercedes
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113793200196/someday-well-be-together-glee-cast-version
Mercedes solo! Sounding as fabulous as ever. It’s a fun song and I’m glad Mercedes is getting to sing as she was one of the originals, buuuut it’s not my favourite solo of hers. (side note: is she singing to Sam? Because yes please).

‘This Time’ (by Glee) sung by Rachel
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113805580736/this-time-glee-cast-version
This song….okay, first of all, it’s a Glee original, which is always great. And like ‘Rise’ a few episodes back, it is written by the amazingly awesome and mega talented Darren Criss. So by that alone, the song is great (and I’m so proud of Darren omg). But guys…listen to this song. Listen to the lyrics. It’s what I’m feeling. It’s what everyone should be feeling. Lea hyped up this song at Paley and I was like, it’s just a song, but NO it’s the best ever. It’s sweet and powerful and those lyrics, man! It is PERFECT for Rachel, for Glee, for Gleeks. I cried when I heard it. Which was awkward because I was in a huge lecture hall waiting for class to start. If you don’t love this song, you need to re-listen until you do.

‘The Winner Takes It All’ (by ABBA) sung by Will and Sue
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113827214741
An ABBA song was hinted at a while ago and I freaked out because a) I love ABBA and b) ‘Thank You For The Music’ would be the perfect song for Glee, like COME ON. So when I saw this song listed, I was upset for a bit. This song is pretty good though. The six+ year battle between Will and Sue is finally over (maybe?). Either way, Glee would not be Glee without Sue or Will.

‘I Lived’ (by OneRepublic) sung by Everyone
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113827190621
This is a good song for them all to sing. It’s about living life to the fullest and being all you can be, which is what Glee did, y’know? Plus, I’m loving how everyone is singing this. EVERYONE. 😀 I’m so excited to see this song, actually.

‘Teach Your Children’ (by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) sung by Will
http://fyeahgleeclub.tumblr.com/post/113827200026/teach-your-children-glee-cast-version
I think this song is the last song of the episode, so that’ll be sad. This song is also perfect for Will to sing. Glee club would not exist without his constant dedication. This is a really sweet song. It’s not my favourite but it’s so great for this purpose. You can hear Will’s uke in it too, which gives me flashbacks to when he sang ‘Over The Rainbow’ in S1. ❤

So….yeah. Those are the songs. Those are the last Glee songs ever. Wow. For this episode, they’re all so good. My least fave is probably Mercedes’ song, and my favourite is definitely Rachel’s solo. The lyrics are just sooooo good. But they’re all great. I mean, I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fact that they’re doing an ABBA song that isn’t ‘Thank You For The Music’ but whatev. What are your favourite songs from the episode? And on a scale from 1 to 10, how much did you cry when listening to them? 😀

Darren And Matthew On Broadway 2015!

Normally at this time, I would be linking y’all up to the songs for this Friday’s episode, but those were released earlier last week (hear them here if you haven’t already). So instead, I’ll take this time to share some cool news that I’ve been waiting to mention.

Since Glee filming has ended (*cries forever*), the cast is now getting ready to embark on new jobs. Two of Glee’s leading males are hitting up Broadway, which is awesome. It won’t be the first time for either of them.

Matthew Morrison (who plays Will Schuester) will be in Finding Neverland, which opens in the spring. It’s an original show based off a 2004 movie and this is its first BWay run. Matt will play J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan. Also starring in the show is Kelsey Grammar, a name some of you older people may recognize from the show Frasier. The show opens April 15th, and you can buy tickets already. Any Peter Pan fans in New York should totally check this out.

The second Glee guy to take Broadway by storm is Darren Criss (who plays Blaine). He’ll be starring as lead in Hedwig And The Angry Inch as Hedwig, which is a huge deal because that role has been played by Neil Patrick Harris and Andrew Rannells. It’s an odd role, and I can’t picture Darren doing it, but I’m sure he’ll be amazing. I saw the movie version of HATAI and heard NPH’s soundtrack version, and though I didn’t love it, I’d be willing to see the stage version for Darren. Darren’s run opens April 29th and will go until July 19th. Tickets are on sale for that already too.

It’s too early for Darren’s glittered up version of the poster, so have some NPH instead

Our boy Darren is also apparently a part of 17 Again The Musical (yes, that Zefron movie is going to be a musical now!). It’s only a reading that’ll happen on March 6th (yes, like in two days) and I don’t think it’ll be open to the public. I don’t know if we will ever see it. There aren’t many details on it right now. Just know that 17 Again The Musical is a thing and Darren is a part of its reading. Because he magically has time for that.

It’s highly unlikely that I’ll make it to New York this summer, so I won’t be seeing these shows, unfortunately. But if I come across bootlegs, I’ll watch them. Is anyone planning to go see the shows?

If you’re wondering what the rest of the cast will be up to after Glee, I’m working on a masterpost that I’ll post once Glee is over (bc I’ll be in need of things to post then :P)

That’s all for now!
