Glee Season 6 Spoilers – Casting New Characters This Week!

Glee Season 6 Spoilers Casting

A tiny Glee Season 6 spoilers casting tidbit:

Remember the announcement about the casting of 5 new McKinley High sophomores who will be populating a Rachel Berry-led New Directions in the sixth and final season of Glee?

Actors are auditioning for those Glee season 6 roles this week.

Actors going out for the parts of Roderick, Spencer, Jane, Mason and Madison will be reading for the roles–but NOT from fresh Season 6 dialog!

I’m hearing that Glee hopefuls have been handed a section of script from a past episode.   For instance–imagine Spencer the cocky, gay football player reading as Puck.  Or, the actors auditioning for Roderick–the schlubby singing sensation–reading as Artie.

As Glee filming for Season 6 is set to begin the first week of September, I would expect the casting to be done quickly.

I’ll update you all with any additional intel.

    Do you by any chance know anything about the 19 year old actor John Manison? He posted several times on FB in starting in June about auditioning for Glee. A drawn out process including singing live and a chemistry test with Lea Michele, if he can be believed. He did receive congratulatory tweets on landing a Glee role and is listed in 3 episodes on IMDb.

    I don’t want to give the wrong impression. I greatly appreciate all of the info you can pass on. But the hiatus has been interminable! So also, will all 5 of these characters be introduced in 6×01?

    Considering how controlling Ryan Murphy is known to be I doubt he would appreciate any young actor going on Facebook telling the world he’s in the process of auditioning for Glee. If anybody is to give out spoilers it has to be him.

    The chemistry is important. Personally, I’m looking forward to Glee and I’m interested in the casting of the newbies.

    They should just get some of the kids from the Glee Project!

    Yes, quite a few fans told this actor as soon as he started posting that it seemed like a bad idea to be sharing this much. Yet he posted through stages of auditions and has congratulatory tweets. And he’s listed as appearing in 3 Season 6 episodes so far on IMDb. So a very elaborate hoax? Or is this the 6th new character already for S6?
