As if the presence of Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera and Lea Michele was not enough to overwhelm new contestants on The Glee Project 2, a new star has been added to that exclusive list: Jane Lynch. Keep reading to find out who else might make an appearance in upcoming episodes of The Glee Project.
There weren’t a ton of celeb cameos in the first season of The Glee Project, but that’s about to change this summer in The Glee Project 2. For Gleeks, it’s already old news that Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera will be on the program. And Lea Michele already put in her time for the season premiere. But Jane Lynch (who plays Sue Sylvester, the nefarious cheerleading coach on Glee) is now also set to join The Glee Project as a mentor.
Glee mastermind Ryan Murphy let Jane Lynch’s name slip when he was talking about the Glee cast’s initial reluctance to come on board for the reality contest. “The funny thing about the mentors for this season is that the Glee cast really wanted to do it…they all watched [Glee Project] and they became fans of the show and for the most part they called me and said, ‘I want to do it!’ Lea [Michele] does, it Cory [Monteith] does it, Naya [Rivera] does it, Amber [Riley] does it, Darren [Criss] does it, Chris Colfer does it, they all do it. Jane [Lynch] does it. They each have an episode.”
This is all great news for anyone obsessed with Glee! Get ready to see all your favorites back as mentors for The Glee Project 2!
