Glee Producer Pushes for Bruce Springsteen, Talks Cast Graduation

by at . Comments

Sue Sylvester may think she's the boss of William McKinley, but Glee producer Ian Brennan says there's one guest star he dreams to have:

The Boss himself.

Asked by E! News who he'd love to see make a cameo, Brennan said he's never brought it up with the musical icon, but replied: "Bruce Springsteen as a motivational speaker."

Is Bruce Springsteen among your ideal Glee guest stars?

Perhaps of more importance to viewers, Brennan also touched on the fact that high school students graduate. The show will reflect this fact on season three and beyond.

"I just think we would be missing a beat if we didn't acknowledge the fact that a huge part of high school is graduating from high school, and that's going to give us a lot of stuff to write to in season three," he said. "Every time we bring in a new character it's worked out really well, we've been very fortunate... That was one of the big surprises of season two, the new characters just seemed like they had been there together forever. So bringing in new characters will allow us a little more flexibility and will add to the longevity of the show."

And one of those new characters will come from The Glee Project.

We'll have plenty more on Glee season three in the coming days, weeks and months.

Of course they're talking about guest-stars again. Of course. And we damn well better have at least one of them freak out about tests or something, because at least then we'd have one realistic storyline. (I cast my vote fo Mike. He needs a STORY damn it.)

that's assuming they graduate, considering the fact that we NEVER SEE THEM STUDY

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.
