The executive producers of Glee will begin a nationwide casting search this February to fill three new roles that will be added to the show’s second season. Auditions will be open to professional and amateur individuals between the ages of 16-26. All hopefuls will be able to submit auditions online. Additional details to be announced soon.
Fox’s hugely popular high school musical, “Glee” is going back into production and casting is now underway for actors, dancers, and extras. The series has received critical acclaim and is nominated for Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe Awards for it’s first season.
Glee features five to eight production numbers per episode. Once the producer (Ryan Murphy) selects a song, rights are cleared with its publishers by music supervisor P.J. Bloom, and music producer Adam Anders rearranges it for the Glee cast. Numbers are pre-recorded by the cast, while choreographer Zach Woodlee constructs the accompanying dance moves, which are then taught to the cast and filmed. Studio recordings of tracks are then made. The process begins six to eight weeks before each episode is filmed, and can end as late as the day before filming begins. Each episode costs at least $3 million to produce, and can take up to 10 days to film as a result of the elaborate choreography.
Golden Globe Nominations:
● Glee – Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical
● Matthew Morrison – Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical TV Series
● Lea Michele – Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical TV Serie
● Jane Lynch – Best Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini-Series or Motion Picture for Television
Screen Actors Guild Awards Nomination:
● Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.
Glee also has received nominations for the 36th People’s Choice Awards, and two Writers Guild of America Awards.
New episodes of Glee will begin airing April 13, 2010.
Do NOT send photos and resumes to the production companies (they will most likely end up in the trash can), they do not cast the films. They hire casting directors who sort through the thousands of submissions.
