This fall, two new faces will step up to challenge two of our favorite TV queen bees. Thank EW’s Michael Ausiello for these casting updates:
International pop star Charice is apparently “signed, sealed, and delivered to recur next season”on Glee as a foreign exchange student whose killer voice will lead Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) into a murderous rage. (Well, not literally, but probably close–we all know she has a penchant for the over-dramatic.)
The casting rumor started earlier this month, with Charice’s manager as the source, but the Filipino singing sensation, who got her start on Youtube, shot it down on Twitter. “I just want to let you all know, that it’s not true that I’m going to be on Glee,” she said. Now, according to Ausiello, it’s the truthiest truth that ever truthed. And Rachel will not be pleased.
Sing-offs are all well and good, but we have just five words for the too-cute Charice: Keep your hands off Finn!
In other casting news, it’s pretty appropriate that Chuck Bass’ (Ed Westwick) “new Blair” would be played by an actress best known for playing a witch:
Harry Potter actress Clemence Poesy (French witch Fleur Delacour from Goblet of Fire and the upcoming Deathly Hallows Parts I and II, for the non-nerds among us) has signed on to play Chuck’s new lady-friend in Gossip Girl season 4: Paris-Style.
“The character, Eva, is described as a warm-hearted bombshell who joins Chuck in Paris,” says Ausiello, “much to the surprise of Blair.” Eva will join us for multiple episodes–long enough to get thoroughly destroyed by the substantially less “warm-hearted” Ms. Waldorf, we expect.
What do you think of these Glee and Gossip Girl additions? Who’s more in danger of losing her head to the resident queen bee?[Images: WENN]
