Ever since Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler left the 'American Idol' judges' table -- Tyler to focus on being a rock star and J. Lo to focus on her family -- Fox went into overtime to try and land some big names to come and fill in those empty spots.

We're certainly hoping to learn a bit more about 'Glee' season 4 when the cast shows up to this year's Comic-Con 2012, given how precious little information is available.  How much of the show will follow Rachel Berry's adventures in New York, and with whom?  How much will stick with the New Directions in Ohio?  And most importantly, what new characters will be introduced?  Fortunately, we may have an answer for one of those...
