Glee Boss Dishes on Season Two Episodes, Guest Stars and More

by at . Comments

Glee creator Ryan Murphy held little back at this week's Fox press tour in Los Angeles. Check out all he had to say about key season two storylines and guest stars...

On the Britney Spears episode: She is arguably the most important female [musician] other than Lady Gaga in the last 10 years, so we're sort of doing an episode not only of her music but also her public image. All the kids on the show, many of them went into singing and dancing because of her. At the heart of it, it's a show designed to show off the skills of Heather Morris, who plays Brittany.

On Brittany and Santana kissing: I think the key is to do it a couple times so it doesn't seem forced. I don't think you have to announce a very special episode like back when they did it on 'Roseanne.' It just seems so outdated and archaic to me. As a gay man, I would never do that. I would make it very organic and do it several times and not make it a stunt.

On a love interest for Sue: I like that Jane Lynch is promiscuous on the show. I think no man can tame her. I haven't talked about [a gay love interest] with Jane, but I think Sue is straight. Although I think that with a couple glasses of red wine, you don't know with Sue.

On Terri: She does not want to be divorced and she's decided in the middle 10 [episodes] to seek vengeance by going after someone that would make Will incredibly jealous.

Will Susan Boyle guest star? She's coming out with a Christmas album, so the story I want to do for our Christmas episode is have Kurt give her some sort of fantastic makeover and have her sing a song from her album on the show. She'll be playing a character.

Who else is guest starring? Adam Shankman is doing one, I think that's great. I think he's doing Episode 8 or 9 of the first 10.

Murphy also said it's unlikely that we'll see Rachel's dads this season. But we will someday, and Lea Michele's dream star for that role? Elton John! Sound off in our Glee forum about who you would like to see play these parts.

umm they already showed pictures of Rachel's Dads in the first episode...?! That would be annoying if they changed that
also brittany and santana have already admitted they have casual sex so it wouldnt really be that surprising.. the susan boyle episode is going to be terrible...
People are so stupid. They think she is so incredible because she's an unattractive older woman with a good voice? Umm in the real world there are lots of those...

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.

Sue

[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.
