Long before Flash and Supergirl confirmed their musical crosover “Duet,” fans pointed to the shared Glee past between Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist as proof of concept. Now, their Music Meister fittingly hails from the same hallowed halls, as Darren Criss signs on to musically menace the Super-duo.
Per E! Online, Criss has entered negotiations to guest in the Hotel Halloween installment as Silver Lake hipster Justin, who books a stay at the titular hotel with his girlfriend in hopes of escaping trick-or-treaters, only to end up on Kathy Bates’ bad side for demanding too much of room service. Bates’ character heads the establishment, and in turn offers “a Halloween trick they will never forget.”
NBC’s live musicals have proven reasonably successful as TV events, a strategy FOX looks to replicate with its own production of Grease, but why stop there? The former Glee network has envisioned a remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, to be broadcast as a two-hour television event.
CBS ‘Supergirl’ recently revealed a more procedural format that had many fans worried about the series, but the casting of Kara Zor-El should leave all positively ‘Glee’-ful. Melissa Benoist will don a cape and tights for the title role in CBS’ ‘Supergirl’ series, chronicling the adventures of Superman’s cousin.
Well, 'Glee' and 'American Horror Story' creator Ryan Murphy was going to need something new with the former coming to an end, and with HBO passing on sexuality drama 'Open.' And more than an 'American Crime Story' on the O.J. Simpsons murders, Murphy will headline a new FOX horror-comedy anthology series, dubbed 'Scream Queens.'
Just when you thought 'Arrow' season 3 had only a few more castings in its tank before the October premiere, The CW's DC-adapted drama adds even more familiar faces to fan-friendly roles. Latest to enter the fray are 'Supernatural' alum Amy Gumenick in the loving role of DC villain Cupid, and 'Glee' star Nolan Funk as a face from Felicity's past.
