Ryan Murphy tweeted the official cast promo photo for Glee
4 Thursday night and unleashed a massive firestorm of confusion. The
photo features nearly the entire cast, including many graduated seniors
and four new stars, but there's no Dianna Agron.
Murphy quickly tweeted to the confused fans that Quinn is still a part of the show and they shouldn't read too much into it. Odds are Agron was just not available for this particular photo shoot (she's been in Europe for most of the summer).
Other cast members not featured include Jayma Mays as Emma and a few recurring characters like Samuel Larsen's Joe, Vanessa Lengies' Sugar and Dot-Marie Jones' Coach Beiste.
There was also an apparent screw-up from the show's promo department. Below is the photo Ryan Murphy originally tweeted, which says "St. Louis." But as you can see in the above photo (the official one from FOX), the text has been changed to "Louisville," which is where Santana will actually be. I'm guessing someone confused the two cities.
The cast photo includes four new faces that will show up this year. Melissa Benoist as Marley appears between Mercedes and Artie. Next to her is Jacob Artist as Jake Puckerman, Puck's younger brother. Murphy previously tweeted that they will be known to fans as Jarley, so you can expect them to be a couple.
Becca Tobin as Kitty is behind Blaine and wearing a Cheerios uniform. Finally there's Dean Geyer as Brody (all the way on the right), the NYADA student trying to woo Rachel.
What do you think of the new photo? Does Kitty look like a primo bitch ready to take over Santana's role?
Murphy also tweeted a second promo photo of Rachel with new guest star Kate Hudson as NYADA's tough choreographer teacher.Glee
