Last night’s Golden Globe backstage and post award party action had the entertainment scribes trawling for scoop! Looking for Glee spoilers? I got a few here! Glee winning 3 out of 5 awards (check the deets here) probably made it even easier to spill…
I’ve come to the conclusion that Ryan Murphy creates Glee story arcs–whatever there are of them–pretty much on a whim. You never know what Murphy is going to do next…or how he’ll change his mind. He’s like the wind!
The good news? Ryan Murphy has decided to take Paul McCartney up on his offer to use his songs. The bad news? The Feb. 15 episode is called “Silly Love Songs”. Argh. One of Paul’s smarmiest tunes. Even Darren Criss won’t save it. (Yes…Darren will croon it…maybe to Chris Colfer?)
Also, Anne Hathaway is set to make an appearance as Kurt’s gay aunt. As Kirsten pointed out in headlines this morning…sounds a little contrived, doesn’t it? So, is she Burt’s sister? In which case, having a gay son wouldn’t be a big deal…right? Or maybe she’s her sister-in-law? Seriously going to be interesting to see how Murphy handles this one.
After the jump, more Glee spoilers. Read the entire list at TV Line.
What’s coming up on Glee:
- According to Amber Riley, she and Lea Michele will be singing “Take Me or Leave Me, ” from the Broadway musical Rent. “Sue tells Mercedes that Rachel was talking [smack] about her, so Mercedes says [to Rachel], ‘We’re having a diva-off once and for all, and we’re going to settle this, ’”
- Post Superbowl special deets: Series cocreator Brad Falchuk reveals, “There’s a couple of unexpected kisses … and a huge Cheerios number which involves people with flaming whips and BMX bikers, which bother Sue Sylvester to no end.”
- Anne Hathaway‘s dream to guest on Glee is confirmed, Ryan Murphy spills, “I just ran into Anne, who has created her own role, and I said, ‘I think that’s great. So she’s going to come on.” Hathaway wants to play Kurt’s lesbian aunt, and has a song list in mind, too.
- On featuring songs from Paul McCartney‘s catalog, Ryan Murphy says, “In the first six episodes, we have done two Paul songs, because we love him.” The episode airing February 15 is titled “Silly Love Songs, ” the track covered by Darren Criss‘ Blaine.
