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
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!
