First Look of Neil Patrick Harris on 'Glee'

How Neil Patrick Harris will look like on "Glee" has been revealed in two stills released via Access Hollywood. As the guest star of May 18 episode, Harris will play Bryan Adam, a former rival of Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester who is also an anti-arts-funding board member at McKinley High. The episode is called "Dream On" but the synopsis has not been released. Producer Brian Falchuk, however, shed a little light on how the actor is doing in the episode. He said, "He was delightful, he was easy, he was all the things you wanted him to be. ...When we were writing the character, we were like, 'Oh my God, what if for some reason, Neil ...can't do it? No one else can play this character; we'll have to rewrite the whole episode!' " Co-producer Ian Brennan added, "I'm really excited to see the cut of that episode, because I think it's gonna be really, really good and really funny." The producers are open to the idea for Harris' character to return again in future episodes. Source & Photo

Glee: Madonna Turns Down Guest Stint

Madonna turned down a cameo in an upcoming episode of " Glee " dedicated to the Queen of Pop - because she has never heard of the TV show. Producers of the hit show, which chronicles the lives and loves of a group of talented teens, were thrilled when they received word the "Material Girl" 's team had given them the OK to use her back catalogue in an episode to air in America next week. But the permission didn't come from the pop superstar directly - and now it emerges she refused to make a guest appearance on the programme. A source tells, "Madonna doesn't have a TV and has no idea what 'Glee' is. The show (producers) did ask her if she wanted to make an appearance in the much-hyped Madonna episode." "She said, 'No thanks', and to be honest she would rather they sing an Elton John song than butcher one of hers." Source Here

'Glee' 1.15 Preview: The Power of Madonna

"Glee" is officially dancing again on FOX and next week is the highly-anticipated Madonna-centric episode. Mr. Schuester is concerned that the girls in the glee club are being disrespected and bullied by the guys. Looking to Madonna and her musical message of equality as inspiration, he challenges the entire team to choose Madonna songs as their next assignment. He hopes that the girls embrace her strength, independence and confidence and that the guys will see the error of their misogynistic ways. The glee club takes the assignment to heart as they perform some of Madonna's greatest hits, including "Express Yourself" and "Like a Prayer." Meanwhile, Kurt and Mercedes give Sue a vote of confidence with a makeover that is definitely in "Vogue." So loud is the buzz surrounding this April 20 episode that FOX decided to release a compilation of all the Madonna's song mash-ups. The album, titled "Glee:The Music, The Power of Madonna", is set for April 20 release in the U.S. but it's already on pre-sale on Amazon. Beside the mentioned songs above, there will be "Borderline", "Open Your Heart", "Like a Virgin", "4 Minutes", and "What It Feels Like for a Girl". Source & Preview

Glee's Jane Lynch Suits Up for Madonna

Next week's Madonna-centric episode of Glee brings out a different side of Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) as we learn she's a huge fan of the pop diva. "We find out her parents were famous Nazi hunters and she's very insecure about her hair," Lynch tells us. "She actually emulated Madonna so much as a kid that she bleached her hair platinum blond and it all fell out. She's been forced to wear short hair ever since, so she's actually pretty jealous of Will Schuester's illustrious locks." After Will makes a comment about Sue's short hair, Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) ease her pain by giving her a makeover, which leads to a re-enactment of the "Vogue" video.

Glee returns tonight with quite the shocker: Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele) are breaking up! After 13 episodes of Rachel pining for Finn, their relationship is about to do a complete 180 when her attention turns elsewhere. "Rachel is a little busy right now because she's fallen in love with someone else," Michele says. "Rachel will always love Finn, but she's met her match right now with someone that she really likes who also really likes her." Meet Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff), the male lead for competing glee club Vocal Adrenaline. "He's her opposite in a sense," says Michele. "It's interesting to see her with a fair sparring partner." So how does Finn feel about Rachel's new man? "Finn has never dealt with another Alpha dog in the pack, so he really is struggling with how to handle that challenge," Monteith says. "He might throw up the dukes a little bit." Meanwhile, Finn will have dating issues of his own when Santana (Naya Rivera) pursues him... aggressively. To Read More Click Here .
