Most series are winding down for the Summer, but Glee's Spring season is just getting warmed up. While we've been debating about the show's hottest guys, Jane Lynch graces the cover of Entertainment Weekly (with the help of a signature Glee slushie). She's not the only one who opens up in the issue — creator Ryan Murphy talks about a Susan Boyle cameo and those Lea Michele rumors, Rachel Berry herself dishes on the season finale, and Heather Morris chats about dancing with Beyonce. Here are highlights:
- Jane Lynch on the show's hype: "It's been wonderful and surreal, but we all still get up and go to work and do our thing. The bottom line is we do it because we love it, and we'd be doing it if our ratings were in the toilet."
- Lea Michele on the finale: "We are just crying the entire final episode. I don’t know how [they're going] to edit it."
- Creator Ryan Murphy on the media: "I told [the kids] at the beginning, 'When you burn hot, there will always be a moment when they turn on you, and then they'll come back around. You just have to learn how to navigate it.' Now you can feel we've gone from sort of America's squeaky-clean sweetheart to 'Lea Michele snubs photographer!' Like, really?"
- Murphy on trying to get Susan Boyle for a Christmas special: "I have two words for you: Lunch. Lady. I think Kurt would just die to give her a Christmas makeover."
To see what Heather Morris (Brittany) had to say and Harry Shum Jr.'s thoughts on being called "Other Asian," just
- Heather Morris on dancing on stage with Beyonce: "I did the Beyonce Experience [tour] with her and when I came back, I started working with Zach [Woodlee], the resident choreographer for Glee. He kept hiring me for more things so I built a good relationship with him. Then I went back with Beyonce and did "Single Ladies." When I was done, he called me and said, 'I know you’re sick of that dance, but is there any way you could teach the [Glee cast]?"
- Harry Shum Jr. on the nickname "Other Asian": "People really clung to that, but more and more it's a balance. Half know me as that, half know me as Mike Chang."
