The cast of Glee were snapped filming new scenes for an upcoming episode of the show and it was spoilerishly revealed that the William McKinley High School football team is going to get a new member!
So as not to spoil the surprise for those of you who like to have your surprises unspoiled, I’ll keep the reveal behind the cut. I will hint that the new footballer is a member of the New Directions glee club. Can you guess who it is? Find out if you’re right, after the jump …
Glee fans are more used to seeing her wearing a frumpy cardigan, checked skirt and unflattering knee socks. So at first glance, it’s a little difficult to recognise Lea Michele dressed up in a bulky American football shirt while filming a new episode of the show. The actress, who plays Rachel Berry in the hit TV series, wore her hair in braids, with her face painted with two black streaks. Despite her more unusual attire, Lea looked happy and relaxed as she strolled alongside co-star Cory Monteith, who plays her on-off love interest Finn on the show. Earlier this month, Lea had discussed the episode, which is said to air next year following the Superbowl. ‘It’s a lot of football stuff. You may or may not see me in a football uniform. That I will say,’ she told Entertainment Tonight. It was unclear if Rachel will actually be joining the McKinley High football team, or if her appearance was just part of an extravagant musical number. Other Glee characters Kurt and Blaine were spotted in the bleachers cheering her on, while co-stars Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling were also on the football field. Glee is now on hiatus in the U.S., with the next episode not airing until February 2011.
It makes sense that there will be a bit of football featured on Glee, especially since they are working on a special Super Bowl episode … but I would’ve never guessed it was Rachel Berry (played by Lea Michele) who would be joining the team … I can’t wait to find out how all of that comes about. Not only is Rachel a member of almost every club in high school but she can now add the football team to her list of extracurricular activities? To be honest, I’d expect nothing less.
