'Glee' Season 6 Gets Chord Overstreet & These 8 Former Cast Members Should Follow Suit
Good news, Glee fans, everyone's favorite quarterback (Second favorite? Third? He definitely wasn't our least favorite, OK?), Sam Evans, will be gracing our television screens once again. That's right, Chord Overstreet will be returning to Glee. Overstreet, who first appeared in the show's second season, has confirmed that he will be back for the show's final season. That means he'll be joining other returning glee clubbers Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Darren Criss to send the show off in style.
But creator Ryan Murphy doesn't want to the homecomings to end there. He told E!, "Anybody who wants to be a part of the show, we welcome them."
So what are you waiting for guys? Let's get the Glee fam back together!
Here are some other former cast members I'd love to see back in the choir room.
Heather Morris was one of Glee’s first break out stars and Brittany quickly became a fan favorite. The show hasn’t been quite the same since Brittany and her particular brand of joy left the show. She’s made occasional reappearances since then, but I’d love for her return permanently. That girl had moves.
Remember how awesome Lauren Zizes was? There’s definitely not been anyone quite like her on television since she left the show in 201, and I’m definitely pulling for her to return.
Jayma Mays announced last year that the show’s fifth season would be her last as guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury. But now, a year later, I’m certainly hoping she’ll reconsider and take Murphy up on his offer.
Matt Bomer only made one appearance on the musical comedy as Blaine’s brother, Cooper Anderson, where he sung a not-great cover of Gotye’s "Somebody That I Used To Know," but honestly, I’ll take Matt Bomer wherever I can get him. Hell, they could fire everybody else and rename the show The Matt Bomer Variety Hour and I’d probably still be on board.
Dot-Marie Jones’ Shannon Bieste might not have had a whole lot of scenes during her time on Glee, but man did she have a presence. She didn’t leave the show empty-handed either — she received two Emmy award nominations. I’d love to see her finally walk away with a trophy after the show’s final season.
A beautiful man with a beautiful voice, Jonathan Groff was basically tailor-made for Glee. Jesse St. James stole our heart as Rachel’s bad-boy-turned-boyfriend-turned-bad-boy again and as Lea Michele’s real life BFF, we’re sure she’ll be thrilled if he comes back too.
As president of the Stephen Tobolowsky fan club, this recommendation might be a teeny bit biased, but come on, Tobolosky is a national treasure. He hasn’t appeared as the ousted glee club teacher Sandy Ryerson since the show’s second season, so it’s certainly high-time for a comeback.
I’ve personally been a huge fan of Jackson since I saw him in a production of Xanadu which was no big deal except that he was freakin’ magical. Glee did the immensely talented broadway vet a huge disservice when they cast him for a guest arch as rival glee club director Dustin Goolsby and then did basically nothing with him, so I’m calling for a do-over. Come on, Glee, put right what went terribly wrong. Please?
