At this point, there is almost no question as to which universe on “Glee” is more interesting. At McKinley High, you have more stories about mean-girl cheerleaders and Will trying to encourage the New Directions to form a “dynasty.” Meanwhile, the New York storyline currently has the likes of Demi Lovato and Adam Lambert coming up as guest stars, not to mention a Broadway diner and NYADA. It is clearly the much more exciting of the two universes, and with that, it only seems appropriate that they have the much more interesting of the two guest stars coming up in episode five.
This casting intel comes courtesy of E! News, and it probably says more about characters currently on the show than it does the actual guest stars.
Louis – A “cool” tattoo artist, which is typically what most people think about tattoo artists when they are around 12 and think that all of them are edgy and awesome. Really, it’s a much smaller percentage of them. This guy is in New York, and so we have to ask the question: Who is getting inked up? Rachel is an interesting idea, since Lea Michele already does have a number of tattoos in real life.
Robbie – A jock sort of character at McKinley, who is going to be making life pretty difficult for one of the students. Yes, we have been down the “bully” route before and it is yawn-inducing, but at the same time you can’t blame the writers for this, since there’s only so much you can do for high school students after five years of storytelling.
