Glee picked up for a second season & YOU could be its next star

Gleeks rejoice!

The four-time Golden Globe nominated Glee has been granted early-renewal for its second season (not to be confused with the second half of the first season).

But before you start singing for joy, you may want to conserve your voice.

Executive producers of the hit musical comedy, are to launch a nationwide search for three new cast-members starting February.

Series creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy said: “Auditions will be open to amateur individuals as well as professionals between the ages of 16-26, and all hopefuls will be able to submit auditions online.

“Anybody and everybody now has a chance to be on a show about talented underdogs. No matter who you are – a Broadway talent or a struggling singing waiter with a dream in the Midwest – you now have an opportunity to make that dream come true by posting your talent video and showing us what you can do.”

You heard right folks, if you can hold a show tune and do a little jig, YOU could be on our screens come season two.

I feel a song coming on…

Seriously though, if someone should audition, it should be this guy… check out the video after the jump… (more…)

Russell Brand blasts Daily Mail over Katy Perry marriage “lies”

Could wedding bells be ringing soon for Russell Brand and Katy Perry? I wouldn’t hold your breath.

The comedian called-out the Daily Mail on its “lies” for publishing an article which he supposedly reveals he is finally ready to settle down and start a family with his pop-star girlfriend, claiming he said: “I’d love to marry Katy – hopefully it’s heading that way and I’m really happy. I do want to have children.”

However, the 34-year-old, who has been courting the ‘Waking Up In Vegas‘ singer since September, has blasted the quote as false via his Twitter account: “The Daily Mail tell lies. ‘Nathan Kay’ is a pustule of untruth. I suppose we ought be grateful they’ve stopped supporting Hitler”

Err…well, I guess that clears that up then.

Russell Brand has a pop at politician


Russell Brand has declared war on Justice Minister and Lord Chancellor Jack Straw via his page on networking site Twitter.

Responding to calls from the former Foreign Minister that the comedian and Jonathan Ross should pay the BBC’s £150,000 Manuelgate fine, the funny-man retaliated by demanding Straw pay back the £7billion he squandered on the Iraq war.”

He added: “No wonder his son has to toke himself to sleep.”

In relation to an incident in 1997 where Mr Straw’s son William was caught smoking and selling cannabis.

Ouch! Low-blow from Russell, but point made. 

Touché sir.
