  • Does this mean that Samuel Larson will become a regular next season? Also I heard that Dianna and Amber will be mentoring to.

    • The only mentor confirmed besides these four is Iqbal Theba who filmed his episode on March 9th. Ryan Murphy did say that there will be more of the big actors as mentors this year so anyone is possible from the cast. But I don’t think there has been any confirmation yet on Dianna or Amber.

    • And Iqbal Theba. A picture was leaked on the internet of him with some of the contestants (exactly 6, in fact…hmm…)

    • I only watched Days for a very short period of time but it was when she was front and center. I always got a kick out of her playing Susan (I think?). Didn’t she also play a male doppelganger too?

      • Yes, his name was Tommy.

    • That would be awesome. Especially considering EJ’s storyline right now…

  • Does that mean that Jane By Design is not getting a second season?

    • It’s not a good sign but actors often film pilots while on hiatus to be safe in case their shows get canceled. If JBD was picked up, she’d drop out of the pilot.

      • Depends how it does when it comes back on June 5th.

  • No big loss for Days. IMO.

    • I agree! But, read yesterday that Molly Burnett is leaving and I will miss her. Of course, they haven’t been writing for her for a while.

      • I hope this doesn’t mean that Gabi’s going to get what she wants. I’d rather see Gabi and Rafe go.

  • Someone sign Currie Graham to be more than just a guest star please. Love him!

  • Lea, Naya, Cory…if Heather Morris mentors than all the best cast members will have mentored this season. It’s good the bigger names are signing on. It was kind of pathetic that the contestants last season had to feign interest in meeting people like Coach Bieste and Harry Shum Jr.

    • I understand where you’re coming from; however, Harry Shum Jr is quite something. Ask anyone who’s seen the League of Extraordinary Dance Series.

  • Really looking forward to Cedar Cove, and hope it gets picked up. I love the series of books it is based on!

  • I only care for the episode when Damian McGinty mentors on The Glee Project.

  • By the way the pictures on The Hollywood Reporter spoil some of the episodes of Glee Project season 2. You can clearly see who is still around for Rivera’s episode

  • Jane by Design has never been the “hit” ABC FAMILY wished it was..although not a bad show..and Andie MacDowell’s character could easily fade out if picked up for an additional season.
