GLEE Exclusive: Mike O’Malley Made Series Regular for Season 2, Plus More Show Intel…

July 13, 2010 by  

When I spoke to GLEE’s Mike O’Malley (Kurt’s dad, Burt Hummel) on Monday — in honor of his Emmy nomination for Outstanding Guest Actor — I got the feeling that the audience’s wish to see more of his character may be coming true.

But O’Malley couldn’t quite confirm anything.

Thankfully, I got some face time with his boss, executive producer Ryan Murphy, later in the day and he made the news official.

Mike O’Malley will indeed be a series regular for GLEE season 2.

This is a great thing for a wonderful guy whom writer/producer Brad Falchuk named immediately when I asked if there was a particular nomination — among the show’s whopping 19 — that they were really excited about.

You can see this for yourself in my full video interview with him, Murphy, and Ian Brennan below… along with the reveal of a whole slew of other semi-spoilers, such as the fate of Rachel and Finn’s relationship this season — they will be a legitimate couple all year long, despite struggling with their clear differences — and the fact that Puck and Quinn won’t be together, as Quinn has her own journey to navigate now that she’s sans baby — the guys say she’ll be back to her old, bitchy self while somehow managing to maintain BFF status with Mercedes.

And what about a Puck and Rachel reunion?

The show may go there again, Murphy shares. It’s definitely possible. But he promises that a duet between the two of them this season is a sure thing.

What else did I learn?

Well, most of the outrageous guest star rumors are completely untrue, especially since they intend to really keep the focus on their regular cast members this year.

Javier Bardem, however, is a huge fan of the show and Murphy will write something for him, because how do you say no to Javier Bardem?

There is also a Britney Spears episode in the works — which Brit Brit is not scheduled to appear in, as of now — but it will somehow put the spotlight on her. Murphy says it won’t be like the Madonna-themed ep — in which, 10 of the artist’s songs were worked into the hour — or like the Lady Gaga-themed ep — during which, the artist’s fashion sense was really put on display — but something rather unlike anything they’ve done before. And the very quotable ditz, Brittany (Heather Morris), will apparently take center stage for it, singing two entire songs.

The guys say there is absolutely nothing in the works with Justin Timberlake though, so JT will not be wooing Terri Schuester (Jessalyn Gilsig) this season. Terri will be back in the mix full time, however, devoting her day-to-day efforts to winning Will back. One of the ways she’ll try to do it? By getting involved with a dude who’s actually capable of making him jealous. Whom that guy is, though, is still a mystery at this moment.

Kristin Chenoweth, as we previously reported, will return and the boys are just crossing their fingers that they’ll get the chance to bring Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff and Idina Menzel back as well…

What do you think, whom would you guys most like to see on GLEE this season?

    The stupid delusional psycho bitch needs to move on, hopefully thats what this storyline does for her.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to ask about Puck and Rachel! You’re a really good interviewer 🙂

  6. Linda on July 13th, 2010 12:41 pm

    I can’t even say how excited I am that we’ll finally see Finn and Rachel be a real couple. Thanks for the Fichel scoop, Korbi! 🙂

  7. Kristina on July 13th, 2010 12:44 pm

  8. Matt on July 13th, 2010 12:53 pm

    My girlfriend makes me watch Glee with her. She’s a total Finn/Rach fan and I don’t tell her this but I kinda enjoy them too.

  9. Traci on July 13th, 2010 12:53 pm

    Yay. We may get a Puck and Rachel duet. I can’t wait for them to sing together. There voices will be amazing together.

  10. anna on July 13th, 2010 1:03 pm

    YAY for Puck and Rachel duet!!! Double YAY for Puckleberry maybe comming back later on the show.

    Too bad for not Quinn and Puck tho.. I really want to see them as a couple :/

    HeMO is going to sing TWO Britney songs???? That’s just brilliant!!!!!! 😀 😀

    Terri is back and I’m so happy for that 🙂

    Thank you so much for the news!!!!

  11. ak on July 13th, 2010 1:10 pm

    Yay! Thanks for the Finn and Rachel news!! so excited!

  12. ggny on July 13th, 2010 1:20 pm

    i could see Burt taking over as Coach of the Football team next year…Since im guessing Ken wont be around next year

  13. Sam on July 13th, 2010 1:46 pm

    YAY for Finn and Rachel! im so excited to see everything coming from this season!

  14. Claire on July 13th, 2010 1:58 pm

    Love hearing all about Finn/Rachel, happy about Mike O’Malley being a regular. Thanks for getting that news for us!

  15. Yvonne on July 13th, 2010 2:01 pm

    I hope Finn/Rachel being together the whole season means a whole lot of Finn/Rachel duets because I love when they sing together!

    Getting mixed news from diff sources about Puck/Quinn……………. so I don’t know how to react yet.

  16. Abby on July 13th, 2010 2:03 pm

    Excited to Finn and Rachel together all season long!!

  17. gil on July 13th, 2010 2:03 pm

    So glad to hear that Mike O’ Malley has become a regular. Burt was good with Kurt but he was also very good for Finn. I hope Burt doesn’t give up on Finn. Burt and Carole get married in Season 2! Finn and Kurt can now become brothers.

  18. Gabby on July 13th, 2010 2:04 pm

    The FR news is great! I’m looking forward to it! I’m upset about Puck/Quinn though. I was looking forward to their relationship in S2. 🙁

  19. Christine on July 13th, 2010 2:09 pm

    Sweet! Glad Mike is a regular. I hope they explore Hummel-Hudson story again.

    Big whoopwhoop for the amazing Finn/Rachel news. Excited to see how they are as a couple!!

  20. Dawn on July 13th, 2010 2:34 pm

    I couldn’t care less about Burt, so the fact that he is being made a regular makes me less excited for Season 2. Kurt seems to be becoming a main character now along with Rachel and Finn, but I wish they would show more of Rachel’s home life instead of just Finn and Kurt. I remember Ryan Murphy saying we wouldn’t be seeing her dads this season though, so that probably won’t happen.

  21. Mo on July 13th, 2010 2:46 pm

    Thanks for the info! I’d love to see some Puck scoop however that was about what he’s doing this year that doesn’t revolve around Quinn or Rachel.

  22. Gabi on July 13th, 2010 2:48 pm

    I”m excited for this whole next season! more Burt, more Finn and Rachel, season 2 just seems like its going to be amazing! Win Glee, Win!

  23. Quinn on July 13th, 2010 2:49 pm

    The FInn/Rachel news is amazing. But I hope we get some individual development, too. Finn grew a lot in the B9, now it’s time for Rachel to grow and learn a bit. She took a lot of blows this season between the public humiliation, Jesse playing her, and her mom dropping her. I wanna see her come out on top–not just with a boyfriend.

  24. Shamus N. on July 13th, 2010 3:14 pm

    Does Tina get to sing more this season?

  25. Simon on July 13th, 2010 3:58 pm

    OMG! Thank you for all this epicness! Krisen Chenoweth back, Mike O’malley regular and more Fichel??? How could we ask for more??? Thanks for the video… seeing them actually saying it makes it more believale then someone quoting it!

  26. Michelle on July 13th, 2010 10:01 pm

    Thanks Korbi!! GREAT interview – you are so personable and professional – I always like your interviews. YAY FOR FINN AND RACHEL!! They are going to be so adorable to watch… I can’t even wait for September! This is the best news ever. Thank you for always getting the latest on Finn and Rachel – they are the core couple to the show – and the people want to know!!

  27. Arianna on July 15th, 2010 7:45 am

    I appreciate all your Glee interviews and it’s no different for this one. You ask he right questions (as what really matters to fans) and then have the most interesting answers.
    Very happy the writers have the courage to try new roads and give to us a whole Finn&Rahel as a couple season. Love that Terri is here again. Way to go, guys!

  28. kik on July 17th, 2010 2:39 am

    Thanks for asking about puckleberry!!

    I can’t wait for their duet and hopefully they do get back together in the future.
