5 Things to Know About 'Glee' Newbie Damian McGinty

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 28th 2011 6:00PM
Gleeks, say hello to McKinley High's latest heartthrob: Rory Flanagan, played by 'The Glee Project' winner Damian McGinty.

Fans of the Oxygen reality competition show swooned over the 18-year-old former Celtic Thunder singer, partly because of his dreamy Irish accent, but mostly because of his adorably clumsy footwork and his velvety smooth voice.

Next week's 'Glee' (Tues., Nov. 1, 8PM ET on Fox) marks the much-anticipated arrival of McGinty as McKinley High's new Irish foreign exchange student, but he's not exactly receiving the warmest welcome.

"Rory is very sweet and really innocent, and it's kind of sad because he wants to fit in and he always has a smile of his face, but he's just getting continually bullied," McGinty told us. "He's getting thrown off lockers and pushed into lockers. It's quite sad. He just wants friends and for people to like him." See? Adorable.

Hill wrote and voices 'Allen Gregory' (premieres Sun., Oct. 30, 8:30PM ET on Fox), which follows a genius, erudite seven-year-old who's just starting at public school. While Allen prefers to drink Pinot Grigio and watch Charlie Rose, his contemporaries are more into finger-painting. "In animation you can do things you can never do in live action, like I couldn't play a seven-year-old on TV, so we kind of thought that was cool and took it from there," Hill said.

Glee'Glee' is known for serious storylines shedding light on everything from homophobia to bullying, but there's one thing the show's apparently not getting right -- its portrayal of adoption.

'Glee' Star Harry Shum Jr. Reflects on iPod Dancer Past

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 6th 2011 7:50PM
It seems that everyone has their own Steve Jobs story, including 'Glee' star Harry Shum Jr.

Shum, who plays fan favorite Mike Chang on Fox's musical comedy, took to his blog to not only mourn the loss of the Apple co-founder, but to share his own personal connection to the innovator. Before the iPod was a necessary accessory, Shum appeared in one of its fiercest commercials as a silhouetted dancer.

"I was asked to do a test commercial shoot for an Apple product which didn't mean much to me at the time," the 'Glee' star wrote. "Some music player that holds all your songs. Sounded cool to me and I never gave up an opportunity to work especially with the possibility of it turning into a national commercial ... That job is where I essentially got comfortable freestyling in front of people let alone an intimidating 70 pound camera. I would do hundreds of takes with scrapes and bruises on my knees forming by the minute. Even then I always had the energy to go 'one more time' because I just felt that I was part of something innovative."

'Glee' Season 3, Episode 3 Recap (VIDEO)

by Crystal Bell, posted Oct 4th 2011 9:20PM
['Glee' - 'Asian F']

Last week's 'I Am Unicorn' was setting up for something big -- and 'Glee' totally delivered. While it's not my favorite episode ever, it definitely seems to echo the glory days of Season 1.

But what made 'Asian F' so great? Three things: A Mike Chang storyline (FINALLY!), more screen time for Mercedes and actual character development (...FINALLY!). I know there are still a few naysayers that have "sworn off 'Glee' forever," but this might seriously turn into the show's best season yet. However, only time will tell if Ryan Murphy & Co. can keep the momentum going.

We come to find out that McKinley High isn't just a school where everyone sings, dances and slushies each other -- it's actually a legit learning facility. Who knew? Well, apparently Mr. Chang did because he seemed all sorts of unhappy when Mike received an A- (aka an 'Asian F') in chemistry class. So he gives his son an ultimatum: get an A, quit 'Glee' or break up with Tina.
