It may seem like an eternity since we have had new episodes of “Glee” season 4 lighting up our TV set, but the good news here is that the wait is almost over. On Thursday, January 24, the show is going to return with “Sadie Hawkins Dance,” but in following that up is an episode entitled “Naked” that is surely going to get plenty of people talking … especially fans of Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry.
Fox has finally released a full list statement along with a guest cast for this episode, but the part that we want to really emphasize here is to not necessarily take the guest cast at its word. While we were starting to believe that Damian McGinty was is “Sadie Hawkins Dance” thanks to him being listed in that press release, the fact that he is also listed here makes that a little less likely given that he has not really been around the show’s set so far in 2013:
“The glee club puts together a calendar photo shoot to raise money as they head into Regionals. Meanwhile, Rachel wins a part in a student art film, but the role poses a moral dilemma in the all-new “Naked” episode of GLEE airing on Thursday, Jan. 31 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GLE-412) (TV-14 D, L)
Cast: Matthew Morrison as Will Schuester; Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester; Lea Michele as Rachel Berry; Cory Monteith as Finn Hudson; Chris Colfer as Kurt; Kevin McHale as Artie; Amber Riley as Mercedes; Mark Salling as Puck; Jenna Ushkowitz as Tina; Naya Rivera as Santana Lopez; Dianna Agron as Quinn; Heather Morris as Brittany; Darren Criss as Blaine Anderson; Chord Overstreet as Sam Evans; and Jayma Mays as Emma Pillsbury.
Guest Cast: Dot Jones as Coach Beiste; Vanessa Lengies as Sugar Motta; Lauren Potter as Becky Jackson; Samuel Larsen as Joe Hart; Jacob Artist as Jake Puckerman; Melissa Benoist as Marley Rose; Dean Geyer as Brody Weston; Becca Tobin as Kitty; Iqbal Theba as Principal Figgins; Alex Newell as Wade Adams; Damian McGinty as Rory Flanagan; Ashley Fink as Lauren Zizes; and Blake Jenner as Ryder Lynn.”
The part of this cast listing that is for sure accurate is that this is the episode that features the return of Dianna Agron’s Quinn Fabray, as she is going to b paying a visit to Rachel and Kurt in New York City.
We’ll close here with a tiny tease concerning Naya Rivera, who posted recently on Twitter that she has been working on a “fiery” musical number for the show. We don’t know what that means, but we’re excited.
