The moment Charice twitted her confirmation (@OfficialCharice “It’s official.I’m on Glee (next season) but when the rumor came out, it wasn’t true”) as the new cast member of “Glee” next season, not only the whole Philippines rejoiced. Her fans and supporters around the world reacted with more than glee. And since the good news spread like wildfire, this blog update is just joining the bandwagon of happiness.
Here’s an excerpt from the report of Andrea Reiher in the zap2it blog:
In the world of “Glee” …
Charice, or Charmaine Clarice Relucio Pempengco, the internationally-known pop star from the Philippines, will be joining the “Glee” kids of McKinley High in a recurring guest role in Season 2, FOX confirms to Zap2it. She’s got some pretty decent vocal chops (Oprah once called her the most talented girl in the world), so we can’t wait to see her go up against Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry.
In other “Glee’ news, creator Ryan Murphy is dispelling the notion of any “Glee” movies coming to the big screen. Murphy tells EW, “There will be no ‘Glee’ movie in the foreseeable future. Despite overtures, I and the studio have decided we want to put our energy into the second season with no distractions for the cast.”
It was recently revealed that the “Glee” actors all have a clause in their contracts for up to three feature length movies. But Murphy just said “foreseeable future” …
So you’re saying there’s a chance!
Charice auditioned for the role alright. Her Philippine manager might have spoken too soon a couple of months back, but now it’s for real! The international singer will be playing a recurring part as a foreign exchange student who will give lead star Lea Michele (Rachel Berry on ‘Glee’) some heavy vocal competition.
Congratulations, Charice! This is another HUGE feather on your cap! 😉
