Glee: Blame it on the Alcohol

Spoiler Alert!

After an absent Kurt and Blaine in last night’s episode of Glee, the show will return next week for an all out wild weekend for the Gleeks.  And I have to say, I’m pretty pissed.

Judging by the promo, the creators of the show have gone out of their way to have Lea Michele kiss every new hot guy that comes onto the show.  Case in point, next week’s episode Blame it on the Alcohol focuses on the Gleeks getting their party on with Kurt and Blaine in tow.  A game of Spin the Bottle later, and Rachel and Blaine are getting their mack on. 

Bummer.

As we all know Darren Criss is straight but seeing as how the creators have promoted the hell out of the fact that he is some ‘gay’ role model, let’s just hope that this act actually serves the show and isn’t some stunt to add some drama.  And we ALL know that if Blaine turns straight, Ryan Murphy will never see the light of day again.

Darren Criss to be on GLEE!

Glee, oh how I hate thee…

Judging by the premiere episode for Season 2, all it seems to look forward to this season is the Regionals (which New Directions will DEFINITELY get in – there has to be some story right?), the themed episodes (excited for next episode!) and finally the guest stars.

And yes there ARE stars. 

Firstly, I’d like to apologize for the ample posts on GLEE, but these days, the casting announcements ARE breaking news.  Yes, you read the title correctly, Darren Criss aka Harry Potter of Youtube sensation ‘A Very Potter Musical’ and it’s sequel ‘A Very Potter Sequel’ is to star on GLEE! (sitting front row in picture above)

Once you’ve recovered from your blackout, it gets even better.  Previously I imagined that Chord Overstreet, better known as the guy who sung Billionaire with the tennis ball mouth on the premiere episode seemed to be the likely candidate for Kurt Hummel’s much anticipated boyfriend.  However, according to reports, Darren Criss is to play such a character (pause for effect). 

Indeed, Criss will play Blaine, a gay student from a rival glee club (thankfully not Vocal Adrenaline) named the Dalton Academy Warblers, and will become a love interest for Kurt.  Although I would’ve liked Criss to play a love interest to Quinn Fabray, his appearance in GLEE is enough to renew my interest in the second season, which seems to be focused solely on getting famous people to just walk on.  Although Criss could be considered a celebrity to Potter fans, in actual fact he is not.  Wikipedia-ing him will get you nowhere and the only mention of him is his short-lived role on the even shorter lived Eastwick and his fanpages from Potter fanatics.

Here’s hoping this news isn’ t just a rumour, because this role could finally get Criss the recognition he deserves.  Frankly though I think the entire Potter Musical cast deserves their own show, Criss’ involvement in a major Hollywood show is a good start.  He practically wrote all the music for the Youtube musicals and has a great voice, so we’ll have to wait and see if his role on GLEE will get him an even larger fanbase as it did for Jonathan Groff as Jesse St. James.

For those of you in the dark on who Darren Criss actually is, here’s the musicals which has made him famous on the interweb.  It’s perfomed by Team Starkid, students at the University of Michigan.  The first video is the original musical while the second is it’s recent sequel.  Prepare to lose a couple of days 🙂

IT IS HERE! The official trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I is here 😀

Previously we’ve just been given teaser or trailers which really didn’t show much.  But NOW we have the latest trailer from WB, showing so much more of what will be in the movie.  It really did give me goosebumps.

Mark this on your calenders – November 19th 🙂

The Vampire Diaries Promos

So I’m not the biggest fan of The Vampire Diaries, but I’ll admit it was one of the best shows from the ’09-’10 season.  Despite people believing that it was just another Twilight knock-off, the show is actually engrossing in that it not only focuses on the love triangle between Elena/Stefan/Damon but also introduces the audience to the supernatural world that resides in Mystic Falls, the show’s setting.

However, we all know why the show is REALLY popular.  Although Paul Wesley is the main love interest in the show, Ian Somerhalder (previously in Lost but now more famously known as Damon Salvatore) is the real star.  Not only is he incredibly good looking, but he’s also a “Bad Boy” who genuinely cares for his brother and his brother’s girlfriend 😉

Now with Season 1’s immense following, the CW network (home of many hit shows such as Gossip Girl) is promoting the upcoming Season 2 very strongly.  But to be fair, the real boost to the show came from Entertainment Weekly’s recently closed poll where fans were asked to vote for their Sexiest Beast.  Beasts included vampires, mutants, aliens, machines and werewolves and personally I found the voting quite entertaining.

However the result, although believable and in my opinion amazing, was quite shocking considering the fact that it’s such a new face in Hollywood.  The winner of EW’s Sexiest Beast was:

DAMON SALVATORE

Not surprising was the fact that it came down to him and Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) from the Twilight series.  We all know how crazy these Twi-Hards are, which is why I was surprised that Salvatore actually won.  Although the difference between the two was nearly 4000 votes.  That’s a lot of people.  It’s probably because of Somerhalder’s endearing tweet that showed that he would probably appreciate the win a lot more than RPattz. 

With the winner of EW’s poll showing the power of The Vampire Diaries, it’s no wonder the CW has just released the new promos for the series.  Enjoy the gorgeousness –

Love this one

And for those who need even more of a Vampire fix, here’s the video promo for Season 2:
