Michael Hitchcock to Guest Star on Glee

by at . Comments

Calm down, Glee.

You had us hooked after your first wonderful, unique episode.

There's really no need to continually line up cool guest stars for next season, not that we're objecting to upcoming appearances by Josh Groban, Kristin Chenoweth, Victor Garber and Debra Monk, among others.

Now, Michael Ausiello reports that MADtv's Michael Hitchcock will show up in the fall. He'll appear in the same episode as Eve, playing the part of the director of a different rival choir.

Hitchcock was hilarious in the movie Best in Show, as he often stars in Christopher Guest-directed movies.

Let me start by saying that I am not a fan of the over commercialized television shows that find a way into every aspect of my TV viewing experience (i.e. a constant ticker or banner for when the next season or episode of “Heroes� is going to air…great show but give me a break). I’m a network security auditor that is against piracy but an advocate of freedom of the arts; I believe that if a movie, song, poem or book, isn’t available in my language or in the format I wish to enjoy it in isn’t available, i have the right to attain it in a matter of my choosing for the sake of demonstration and protestation.
With all that out of the way I find myself watching this television show called “Glee�. It has a simple premise…A group of outcasts finding themselves utterly drawn to the age old traditions of song and dance. I was in my church choir, middle school choir, high school choir, and I sucked at it. I was a baritone singing with tenors and I have nightmares about my senior year solo performance; but why did I do it? I loved to express myself through song. High school social dynamics made sure I knew I was doing the WRONG thing so I also participated in sports for the sole purpose of being accepted. The premise, humor, sarcasm, and social contradictions of “Glee� are exactly what I have been waiting for in a TV show. Fox has done an amazing job of delivering this show to its viewers. Ladies and gentleman I actually watched the series premiere WITH COMMERCIALS. I couldn’t wait for the FF> version from my dvr.
I am sure to be criticized for this post but I am going to post it on every forum I am a member of for the sole purpose of emphasizing one point…the fine arts are dying and this show may be the adrenaline that brings it back to life. Bravo for using the actors actual voices!
Please watch this show, record this show, share this show with your friends. Keep the musical arts alive.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
