If you have been anxiously awaiting some more information about whether or not Damian McGinty and some of the other “Glee Project” season 1 contestants will be returning to “Glee” for season 4, the good news is that you can almost stop rocking back and forth with eager anticipation.
In a new interview with the Irish Voice, McGinty revealed that we are almost at decision time when it comes to not just his character of Rory, but for many recurring players who we have come to know and love over the past season or two:
“I find out – we all find out at the end of June – whether I’ll be on Glee next year, so it’s a bit of a waiting game … If it happens great, if it doesn’t I’ll get back out there and there’ll be something else.”
For those who are wondering if there is any evidence about producer leaning one way or another, know that Ryan Murphy is planning to keep at least one of the “Glee Project” final four around next season, and he could do more than that. The only reason McGinty could be in some trouble is that his character’s story was written out in such a way that if he does leave the show, it will be explained that he was forced to go back to Ireland after failing to land a new visa. If he does stay, the explanation here will be that he was lying about his visa status in order to get Sugar to go to prom with him.
As for the other “Glee Project” co-champion, Samuel Larsen appears to likely be returning based on the fact that he has served as a guest mentor for season 2 of the reality show. As talented as McGinty is, Murphy came under fire by many for using so many Irish stereotypes in the creation of the Rory character.
What sort of storylines do you think could be written for Damian and Samuel if they are each around next season?
