Glee hits its 500th musical performance Thursday (9:30/8:30c on Fox), so in honor of that milestone, we decided to make a big production over New Directions' new powerhouse Melissa Benoist, 24. If you think her Marley Rose is a sweetheart, that's nothing compared to the delightful Colorado native who plays her.
Gwyneth Paltrow, Neil Patrick Harris, Britney Spears and Ricky Martin — Glee has never had a problem luring A-list talent to the halls of McKinley High for guest-starring roles. And the roles of the glee clubbers' parents have been no exception. In its first three seasons, the Fox musical has nabbed comedy pioneers (Carol Burnett), Broadway vets (Victor Garber, Idina Menzel), sci-fi stars (Jeff Goldblum) and even produced an Emmy nominee (Mike O'Malley). Now that there are a new group of seniors set to rule the school — or at least the choir room — this season on Glee, could meeting Blaine's dad and Artie's mom be far behind? The cast shared their top choices to play their TV parents...

We talked to Peters about her role on Smash, Karen's lack of desperation (shouldn't she be wanting that part a whole lot more?) and the perilous life of a theater performer...
Now doesn't this look like one big Berry happy family?
Two days after it was revealed that Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell will play Rachel's dads on Glee, the two reported to set Thursday and took part in a family portrait with star Lea Michele.
"This is definitely going to be the best day ever," she tweeted Thursday. "Getting ready to shoot my first...

Almost a year ago, Watercooler asked Santa for a few things in regards to Glee, and last night, we got the one we wanted the most: More Santana. In fact, it was like a "a very special Santanisode" that saw the spitfire who once declared "the only straight I am is straight-up bitch" officially embracing her Sapphic self and showcased the always-delicious Naya Rivera's ability to be all sorts of fierce, funny and believably vulnerable. Her version of "Constant Craving" with Idina Menzel? That was just extra awesome-sauce on the side.
