The Glee cast was out in full force for the spring premiere soiree for their hit FOX show, which returns with all new episodes tonight! Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Lea Michelle, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale and Amber Riley all radiated on the red carpet, excited for their return! The party was held at Bar Marmont in L.A. and Lea walked the carpet with Spring Awakening Broadway pal Jonathan Groff. Jonathan will make his Glee debut as a love interest for Lea’s character Rachel — possibly to make Finn (Cory’s character) jealous?
Broadway alums Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel attended the event last night as well as comedienne and actress Molly Shannon.
The new episodes have some surprises in store— the highly anticipated Madonna-themed episode and a tribute to Lady Gaga just to name a few!
“I’m sure happy for Lea Michele,” Duncan told OK! last night at the Atlantic Theater Company’s 25th Anniversary Gala in NYC. She’s doing a great job. The show is really cool. What more could you ask for. I feel like a real starmaker.”
“We were working with Lea since she was 14,” he added.
The Grammy nominee attributes Glee‘s success to its uniqueness.
“It’s not formulaic and it’s not conventional,” Duncan said. “It takes a bold stance about its aesthetic and the more we have of that on television the better.”
Be sure to tune in for the return of Glee tonight at 9:38 on FOX!
