Glee: Bruce Springsteen, NSYNC, Baz Luhrmann and Gay Teen Suicide?

So, on top of looking forward to Gwyneth Paltrow and more of John Stamos, here are some exciting new rumors:

Rumor has it, ex-*NSYNC’ers Joey Fatone and Lance Bass are campaigning for inclusion in a future episode. I mean they blew our minds with an ALL Britney episode, so OBVIOUSLY they should do an episode with the most popular boy-band from the 90s. If they get Justin Timberlake to sign on, I can say that this will definitely happen. Apparently, the two members who have already signed on are suggesting to be written in as teachers, so all five members wouldn’t be needed. I say, dream on. It’s an exciting thought though.

Also Moulin Rouge director, Baz Luhrmann has spoken about wanting to co-direct an episode with Ryan Murphy:

I’m a great fan of Glee. I spoke to Ryan. I tried to find a moment to do an [episode] with him,” Luhrmann said. “I’d love to do that. I think those kids are phenomenal. Just to do that every week, the discipline.

How amazing would THAT be for the director who opened the door with a musical using modern/pop music for a storyline to be a part of what he directly influenced? CAN’T WAIT.

Rumor ALSO has it that no one other than THE BOSS himself, Bruce Springsteen will be making at least a cameo this season!

E! News also reported today that the Glee will feature an episode in response to gay teen suicide. If you haven’t been following this in the news, then you live under a rock and should crawl out.

“Ryan wants to do an episode about it, which I think is very smart of him,” Matthew Morrison revealed. “As a cast I don’t know much we can do. That’s why I think an episode would be great… Ryan is very current with staying on the times, so I think it would be this season if it were to happen.”

“I just found out today about the episode, and I think that’s amazing,” added Heather Morris. “I just saw the tragedies on the news the other night. I think people need to be aware of what the internet is doing for so many people. Yeah it’s good, but people are putting up other people’s private movies? It’s disgusting.”

It’s good to know that although Glee gets totally campy and ridiculous at times, that they recognize how many people watch their show, and how wide of an audience they can reach. (Speaking of which, how awesome are those American Express commercials?)
