After I saw the hilarious and joyful pilot for Fox's upcoming musical series Glee back at January's TCA press tour, I decided it just might be my favorite new series of this whole season. And now, it turns out there's something that could make me love it even more: Kristin Chenoweth and Victor Garber are both joining the series in recurring roles.
Chenoweth's role is apparently so super-secret, Entertainment Weekly wouldn't give out any details, but the report is a little less tight-lipped about Garber's part: He'll play the father of Matthew Morrison's character, Will, the teacher who takes over a ragtag high school glee club and tries to turn it into a championship-winning singing and dancing machine.
They're just the latest two Broadway stars in a cast that's already overflowing with singing talent, including Morrison and Spring Awakening's Lea Michele. The show, from Nip/Tuck's Ryan Murphy, reminds me of Freaks and Geeks with musical numbers, and I can't wait till Fox puts out a video promo so I can share it with you.
In the meantime, tell me: Does the presence of these two stars pique your interest? And does it help make up for the loss of Pushing Daisies and Eli Stone to know that these two will be singing on our TV screens again soon?
