Based on the pictures that Chord and Kevin just posted, they’re filming at the Paramount theater on the Paramount lot. Glee has used the lobby and the bathrooms there for filming before. I don’t think they’ll use the theater itself because the stage they have isn’t really set up for performances (and definitely not set up for choreography).
“She has one of the most extraordinary voices I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. All you’ve gotta do is give her a mic and she’ll be fine. I don’t think I need to tell people why she’s gonna kick ass, she just kicks ass, end of story.”—Darren Criss on Demi Lovato’s upcoming performance at ET Canada’s NYE Celebration (Source)
Skylar Astin has booked a guest stint on Glee in a role that will likely draw comparisons to the character he played in last year’s big-screen musical-comedy hit.
According to sources, the actor-singer — who’s currently starring in TBS’ rookie sitcom Ground Floor — will play Jean-Baptiste, the lead singer of Throat Explosion (aka New Directions’ competition at Nationals).
Astin’s episode is currently in production and is slated to air in March.
NEW YORK - A coalition of celebrities launch Uprising of Love, a social movement dedicated to supporting the Russia Freedom Fund, which works for long-term, systemic change in the status and treatment of Russia’s LGBT community. More than 50 celebrities are part of the coalition including Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, James Franco, Edward Norton, Jim Parsons, Julianne Moore, Chris Colfer, Zachary Quinto and more.
About the Russia Freedom Fund
The Russia Freedom Fund is a U.S. tax-deductible vehicle for making financial contributions in support of the LGBT movement in Russia and efforts to combat discrimination and violence there based on sexual orientation and gender identity. 100% of all donations will be paid out as grants. This initiative responds to growing concerns about recent state-sponsored discrimination in Russia and expresses solidarity between the international LGBT community and allies, and the Russian LGBT movement.
On Sunday I went to TrevorLIVE with Girlie. Thanks to her, we had a fantastic table in the first row on the Mezzanine level, which offered us a perfect view of one of the Glee tables.
Darren, Naya, Amber, Harry and their dates sat at a table with Darren’s parents. So for 2+ hours we had them in our sight line (though Amber and Naya left early).
They were all gracious to each other, and to everyone who came up to their table. They seemed to genuinely enjoy hanging out with each other, and there were two awesome moments I witnessed that made me feel so happy to be a fan of the show, and the cast.
Cheyenne Jackson sang the first song of the evening, “Somebody to Love” by Queen, and right away Darren, Naya, Harry and Amber started singing along. They pointed to each other, bopped their heads, talked excitedly to each other over the table and laughed; they were clearly remembering their Glee Live days. When it came to the point in the song when Amber let loose in their version, they all turned to her (Darren gestured toward her) and she pretended to sing it. They seemed to have a blast during that song.
Later, when Amber sang “Ain’t No Way,” they were beyond excited—like it was the best thing ever. (Which it was.) They were on the edge of their seats, all very into it.
Darren leaned over to say something to his parents about the song, and he did that hand gesture he did in “Night of Neglect” over and over, until he took out his phone and filmed her. Again. (I have to wonder, how many videos does he have of Amber singing “Ain’t No Way”?) He also shouted a big “woo!” during the song. He was on his feet after the song ended.
These two moments stood out for me because it was so clear that the Glee cast really is a family. That they are friends, enjoy spending time together, and they support each other. It made me smile and that smile stayed with me the whole night through.
It seems like Burt Hummel might have a pretty substantial role in 511.
So far Mike O’Malley was on set with Romy Rosemont on Friday. He tweeted a picture with Jenna yesterday and they were clearly on set (it looked like at McKinley). And this morning he tweeted a picture with Chord where it looked like they were in the hair/makeup trailer. Chord also tweeted about being up early today.
So, not sure what Burt’s story might be in 511 but it looks like he might have several scenes. I would love if he was a chaperone for Nationals.
And I’m not positive that whatever he filmed today and yesterday was for 511 but his scene with Romy on Friday definitely was so I’m assuming whatever he’s filming this week is also for 511.
