Glee Casting Rumor: Grant Gustin as Series Regular?

by at . Comments

Fox President Kevin Reilly confirmed yesterday that Glee will not be spun off in any way - but that doesn't mean season four won't look very different from anything we've seen previously on the show.

Look for Rachel, Kurt and the senior class to graduate, while likely still being involved in some capacity. New characters, meanwhile, will step up, with E! News reporting Grant Gustin may very well be promoted to series regular status in time for the fall.

Gustin - who plays evil, Blaine-desiring Warbler Sebastian - will recur throughout this winter and spring, playing an especially major role in the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute episode.

A source says a new deal for Gustin has been discussed, but the show is "not finalizing any season four regulars until May," while the actor Tweeted last night: "Thanks for all the congrats but this news is not official as of yet."

Still, the likelihood seems strong. Do you wanna see Sebastian as a regular on Glee?

*Ugh* this isn't making me rethink my decision to quit Glee after the Michael Jackson ep.

I get that the seniors are graduating, but network prez has already said that they are bringing back Lea Michele and others. And now they are looking to add more regulars? Come on. There are already too many storylines and too many episodes with major players being MIA. Check out my open letter to Ryan Murphy. http://onmydvr.com/2011/12/sta...

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.
