There were a lot of information regarding "Glee" being released at 2010 Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 17. Backstage, creator Ryan Murphy said they are trying to reach out to Jennifer Lopez to make an appearance, and later during the press conference held after the ceremony, he said there will be showdown in the season finale. About the guest starring appearance of Lopez, Murphy said, "I have a meeting with Jennifer Lopez in a couple weeks. She wants to come on. We want her to be a cafeteria lady." Meanwhile, Ryan revealed the sectionals will see the "Glee" club competing with Vocal Adrenaline whose awesome performance they have seen in the pilot. The show will only be back on April 13 and they are still shooting the episode where Madonna's catalog will be used fully. "We are shooting right now a Madonna episode, a tribute to Madonna," Murphy said. "She may or may not be in the show. We are doing a great number with Jane Lynch and Olivia Newton-John. They are going to do 'Physical'." Beside announcing that Rachel-Puck relationship will be revived because audience responded well to it, Murphy said openly-gay Kurt will get a lover. "We just announced we're doing a nationwide search for the season 2 cast, and [Kurt's boyfriend is] one of the three roles that we're adding," he said. "And we're going to make them a power couple. We're not going to do the whole hiding in the shadows thing. We're going to make them popular, and out and proud and glamorous. Like prom king and king. We're doing the opposite of what's been done." Murphy added, "We're also casting sort of a Eve Harrington [from 'All About Eve'] to kind of steal Rachel's thunder a little. So those are two of the three." Another point being shared during the press conference was that they will take away the baby fever which was a large subject in the first 13 episodes and focus only on Quinn's delivery in the back 9 episodes.

" Glee " is not stopping at Olivia Newton-John and Jennifer Lopez. The show is also welcoming Neil Patrick Harris to the clan and the deal is nearly done for him to appear in an episode during May sweeps. Not only will the episode feature the " How I Met Your Mother " star, but it will also be the one directed by Joss Whedon. Harris, according to EW, was the one who wanted to appear on the show. "Glee" show runner Ryan Murphy gladly accepted the proposal and quickly created a role especially made for Harris. The episode will not only reunite Harris with his "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" director but also with Zachary Woodlee who was in charge of recent "HIMYM" musical episode. "Glee" won the Best Comedy/Musical Series at Sunday, January 17's Golden Globe Awards. Cast Lea Michele is wishing that Justin Timberlake can come on-board too. "I'm rooting for Justin Timberlake," she said. "Aside from being an incredible singer and dancer, he's also a fantastic comedic actor, and that is a great cocktail for being on 'Glee'. And I think he and Matt[hew Morrison] would have a fantastic dance-off." The back nine episodes of "Glee" will air starting April 13. Source Here
As if it wasn't bad enough that Glee's Will Schuester has his wife and girlfriend fighting for him, he may soon have even more female attention. "There's two that you know of, there might be more," Matthew Morrison, who plays Mr. Schue, told TVGuide.com at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, where the show was named best TV comedy. "Women are coming out of the floodgates for Will Schuester." Will's estranged wife, Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig), and his new girlfriend, Emma (Jayma Mays), will continue to fight over the glee coach, but Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) is getting into the mix, too. "She will be back with a vengeance," Lynch said. "It starts out with a little sexual blackmail and it goes on from there." As for Terri and Emma, "We'll have a real old fashioned girl fight, though I won't stop at murder, honey," Gilsig joked to Mays on the red carpet. "Or at least getting you transferred." "I do want to keep Will, but I'm a little afraid, I have to say," replied Mays. "Jessalyn, I think I could take you. I'll squirt you down with antibacterial soap if I have to." Gilsig and Mays said their characters, who don't normally sing on the show, will be belting tunes in the latter half of the season, while Lynch will pair up with guest-star Olivia Newton-John for "Let's Get Physical." Lynch teased she'd be singing much more in the coming episodes. Another possible addition: Executive producer Ryan Murphy said Jennifer Lopez may be making her way to the set. "I have a meeting with Jennifer Lopez in a couple of weeks. She said she wants to be on," he said. Who do you want to see Will end up with? Source Here
