Glee has revealed a couple major casting scoops over the last two days:
- LaMarcus Tinker will come on board as a love interest for Mercedes.
- Vanessa Lengies has been cast a a student named Sugar.
And now, courtesy of a cast chat at last week's Television Critics Association press tour, we have a couple of storyline scoops. To wit:
Sue Sylvester will be running for Congress, a spoiler previously announced. But Jane Lynch elaborated a bit in a discussion with The Hollywood Reporter:
“My character is continuing her campaign for Congress on the Sue Sylvester American Liberty Ticket and she’s going to be more right-wing than Michele Bachmann, at this point."Lea Michele's Rachel, meanwhile? It's all about the musicals, amateur-wise and professionally.
“I know that she’s going to be in the school musical,” the actress said. “I have some awesome story lines with Darren Criss, Chris Colfer and I’ll be singing a lot of Broadway, as always.”
