Glee's Jacob Artist on Stripping Down, Puck’s New Leaf and Fitness Tips From Chord Overstreet

Chord Overstreet, Heather Morris and Jacob Artist

So far this season, the hard exterior of Glee newbie Jake Puckerman (Jacob Artist) has thawed to reveal a sweet and surprisingly tender center. But the younger Puckerman will reveal even more when the boys of New Directions strip for a racy school calendar in Thursday's episode (9/8c on Fox), appropriately titled "Naked."

Artist, 20, is the first to admit he was nervous to show some skin on the Fox musical, but says his cast mates helped calm him down. "I think that we help each other out so much on those days where we have to... read more

Glee: Rachel and Brody Heat Up, Santana Heads to NY and the Glee Club Has an "Awakening"

Glee

The halls of McKinley High — not to mention NYADA — were left littered with broken hearts after the first half of Glee's fourth season, in which longtime fan-favorite couples such as Finchel, Klaine and Brittana split. But it looks like love is the air for a more than few of our favorite New Direction-ers past and present when the series returns with new episodes Thursday at 9/8c on Fox. "I think Rachel is kind of diving in head first with Brody a little bit," Lea Michele tells TVGuide.com. "I think that they definitely move a little faster just because he's a little older and because they're in college now."

Brachel — or should we say Rady? — aren't the only lovebirds heating up... read more

Glee's Melissa Benoist: "Something Drastic Needed to Happen" to Wake Marley Up

Melissa Benoist

Attenion all Gleeks! Melissa Benoist, who plays Marley Rose on the Fox musical comedy, has a very important announcement.

"Some people tweeted me that they thought she was dead, but she is not dead," Benoist tells TVGuide.com. "She is alive."

Phew! But just because the glee club newbie survived a fainting spell brought on by her eating disorder during Sectionals, her battle is far from over. Not only will Marley have to start taking better care of herself — physically and emotionally — but she'll also have to work to win New Directions over after jeopardizing their shot at Regionals. Benoist talked to TVGuide.com about Marley's road to recovery, her research for the "daunting" storyline and the possibility of another Glee tour... read more

Glee's Jacob Artist Teases Jake's "Great Turning Point," Compares Jarley to Tarzan and Jane

Jacob Artist, Blake Jenner

For most of his life, Glee's Jacob Artist has been hiding a big secret.

"I was always singing to myself, but I never ever performed and I never told anyone I liked to sing. So it was a definitely a new adventure going in to audition for Glee," the 20-year-old tells TVGuide.com. "Everyone's like, 'So when did you start singing?' I'm like, 'My first Glee audition.'"

Suffice it to say, the cat is definitely out of the bag. Artist, a trained competition dancer since the age of 5, is... read more

Glee Sneak Peek: New Directions Goes "Gangnam Style" for Sectionals

Glee

Glee has been off the air for almost a month (yes, we're still drying our eyes from this, too), but doesn't that mean the cast behind the Fox musical comedy hasn't been hard at work.

And now the cast is taking Gleeks behind the scenes of an upcoming performance of the worldwide hit "Gangnam Style" by Psy.  "You know we had to do it," Kevin McHale says. In the video, featuring a... read more

Did Glee's New Kids Hit the Right Notes? Weigh In Now!

Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist

Glee kicked off its fourth season Thursday and although most of the episode focused on the new Rachel — aka the evolving Rachel (Lea Michele) now conquering New York and the thunderdome-style battle back in glee club to fill her shoes as de-facto leader — there was another new Rachel roaming the halls of McKinley. However, this Rachel — with a gorgeous singing voice and natural good looks — goes by the name of Marley.

The season premiere added several new faces to the mix, including high-profile guest star Kate Hudson as Cassandra July, Rachel's NYADA dance teacher from hell, as well as several young'uns, such as Marley, who are seemingly being poised to segue into the spotlight now that last year's seniors are off following their dreams and as last year's juniors head into their senior years. So are the new kids worthy successors to the New Directions throne? Or does Glee have a Saved by the Bell: The New Class situation on its hands? Let's break it down... read more

The Daily Review: A New and Improved (for now) Glee

Glee

Few shows experience growing pains more publicly than Fox's Glee, the exuberant and irreverent — and often painfully inconsistent — coming-of-age musical comedy that is in a seemingly constant state of reinvention, often at its own peril. Coming off the most significant upheaval to date, a graduation-day finale that sent a number of its most prominent characters (Rachel, Kurt, Finn, Quinn, Santana, Mercedes, Mike Chang) into the world beyond Lima, Ohio, Glee rebounds in the fourth season with a terrifically entertaining season opener on a new night and time (Thursdays, 9/8c). Glee may never be able to recapture its initial glow and buzz, but if this is an indication of its future, I like where it's heading.
