TVLine.com is reporting that XFactor’s Pop star judge Demi Lovato could be coming to Glee. The word is that the “Warrior” singer will join the cast this coming season as the friend of Leah Michelle’s character Rachel Berry. She is said to be playing a character named Dani. Reports indicate that Dani will be a “struggling artist” that shares a 6 arc storyline with fellow Glee musician guest star, Adam Lambert. Lambert is said to be playing a character by the name of Kurt.
This plot is taking shape alongside the show’s announcement to pay tribute to its recently deceased star Corey Monteith,Famed Glee executive producer Ryan Murphy told Deadline.com about what has been described as a very heartfelt look at how young people grieve” over Monteith recent premature death. His description got us thinking, but let enough remain a mystery so it isn’t spoiled for fans.
“Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died,” Murphy says. “The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’”
“That might be weird for some people,” Murphy adds, “but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.”
The 31 year old Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, died unexpectedly as the result of a drugs and alcohol overdose on July 13th. The Script is currently awaiting final approval. We’ll let you know if we learn more about his tribute.
