Exclusive Glee Video: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Adam Lambert Get 'Felt Up' in Puppet Promo

Get More: Exclusive, First Look, Video

Glee fans have extra reason to be thankful this week, seeing as how Fox has opted to eschew traditional rerun and/or holiday fare on Thursday (aka Thanksgiving) in favor of an all-new episode of the Fox musical-comedy — and suffice it to say this installment required all hands on deck.

Because it’s puppet-themed.

Get it? Hands? Puppets?

  • Really, Glee, really? One thing I’m thankful for is that I still remember when Glee was good. It’s a fading memory though.

    • I have a theory that they just completely stopped trying to make any sense once they got renewed for two seasons. I mean they were barely putting effort before, but it seems like now they’re actually trying not to make sense.

      • I think they’re trying to keep it fun and light-hearted while they’re scrambling to retool their story line They have to completely change direction after the death of someone who was a major character and had a central story arc.

        This looks like it’s going to be a very cute episode. Something fun for the end of a holiday.

        • I agree. I have liked season 5 more than season 4 so far. Well at least the NY part the Lima part still has boring characters.

        • I agree that this will be a cute episode and this promo seems like an impromtu, lighthearted fu moment for Chris, Adam and Blaine to play. Hope people will chill and just enjoy this cute momenyt of actors having fun with their props and sharing it with us. I loved Adam’s head toss and role playing. He can be so funny and is such a good sport in real life, alays connected in the moment. I think the Glee cast is comprised of super talented, extremely nice people and I respect them all and appreciate their playfulness!

      • Definitely. Same with all other Ryan Murphy shows they go out of sense towards the end.

      • I have to agree. Season 4 wasn’t perfect but it definitely had story momentum and felt like it was going somewhere, even when that “somewhere” wasn’t exactly great. This season just feels like world class wheel spinning. I honestly feel like the past 6 episodes have moved the story forward in no way (aside from Finn’s unfortunate passing of course). Each week is jut another theme episode where they invent ways to shoehorn Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus songs for the sake of collecting some song downloads.

  • Haaaaha, really cute! As a NEW viewer of Glee, I find it fun, entertaining and love the great arrangements of the musical numbers (the end part of The Fox is Amazing!) I guess having a fresh viewpoint helps – seems like some of the longtime viewers get a little jaded. Sad.

    • This is so lovely to hear! I’ve been watching Glee from the beginning and while yes, it’s changed over the seasons, I still love the show so much. I learned quickly to suspend disbelief and enjoy what’s given to me. Glad to hear new viewers are enjoying the season! (so far season 5 is superb)

      Comment by kd83954 – November 25, 2013 08:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I wonder why we are jaded? Maybe its because we were told our glee veteran’s dont matter? Not everyone likes Rachel, Kurt, Santana, Finn and Blaine we were told our favorites didn’t matter so there in fact we dont matter.

      • Katie- we know you are jaded and btw Finn died. Since you don’t watch the show- you probably don’t know this- TROLL Just ruin it for other people since this is your thing. TAKE BACK GLEE FROM THE TOLLS!

  • Ahh this episode is going to be SUCH a hoot! One of the best episodes was when Tina hit her head and everyone switched bodies. You could tell the cast was having so much fun with it, despite the ridiculousness of the story. I imagine this episode will be similar!

      so done with hateful people

        • No one said you can’t, AshleyF just asked you how was he embarrassing.
          It’s pretty different to say “i don’t find Darren Criss funny” from “Darren is embarrassing, as always”

      • He was embarrassing cause he wasn’t able to figure out anything funny to do. He just pales in comparison to Chris at every turn.

  • I totally agree with TM! This was an awesome way to begin my Monday! I love ALL the puppets but Lambert has my heart by FAR! SOOO frakkin’ cute! ;) (why do I get the feeling that the actors wrote their OWN material for THIS bit and also controlled their own puppets?)

    Comment by Janie – November 25, 2013 08:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Hilarious!!!Love how the puppets make fun of their alter egos, so cute and relatable. So especially precious when Adam’s gets huffy and throws back his head and walks off the stage like a Diva. And Chris’ puppet is so bored with the great acting, nice guy kudos, when he’s actually a closet, jaded, alcoholic misanthrope. I’m a new Glee fan, and this
    shows the comedic side of Glee that I did not expect much of. So looking forward to more of Glee’s episodes. Adam’s character is adding a fun dimension to the dynamic of Glee, JMHO.

  • Chris and Adam are fantastic with their puppets. Very entertainment. They brought so much life and character to their puppets! Apparently, we can add puppets to the list of things Darren lacks chemistry with because his part was not anywhere near as entertaining as Chris and Adam.

    Comment by JJ – November 25, 2013 09:19 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • But…it’s not a part? They were being goofy with their puppets! How can he have chemistry with his puppet?? I’m not getting it? It’s okay to say you didn’t think Darren’s bit was funny but to say he lacks chemistry with THE PUPPET is just confusing.

      Comment by kd83954 – November 25, 2013 09:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • LOL relax, they’re just saying Darren was boring. Which he sort of was and they probably should have chosen someone else to play with their puppet or something.

        Comment by JP – November 25, 2013 09:48 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Oh please. Plenty of people enjoyed his parts too and Chris and Adam weren’t even talking to their puppets so what ‘chemistry’ was there ? This person is just a Darren hating troll. They always come out in the comment section of these articles

            Comment by elephant – November 25, 2013 11:01 AM PDT  
      • Well, Darren didn’t know how to use his puppet. You’re not supposed to be able to see his hand moving the puppet around like that. For someone who was bragging about how he gets to perform with puppets, he’s really quite bad at it.

          Jesus, I don’t even care about Darren Criss and even I can see you are just looking for reasons to hate on him/his acting get a life
          Anyway, Adam is gorgeous

          • I’m not taking it seriously. I’m just saying he’s not funny and he sucks at handling a puppet. And since he went on and on about it, it’s pretty funny. So I guess he succeeded in making me laugh that way.

            Also nice ableism.

            Comment by m – November 25, 2013 11:27 AM PDT  
          • Maybe so, but he hasn’t actually operated the puppet in his past jobs.
            the first on was a voiceover part and the musical, he just composed the music and wrote the songs for it ;)

            Comment by hannah – November 25, 2013 11:40 AM PDT  
          • well darren’s stuff was just goofing around.
            Chris and Lambert were doing some cute improv.

            Which y’know fair dos. Sometimes you just want to be cute with a puppet, and not think about scripting a whole monologue. no need to fly off the handle folks.

    • I agree. Compared to Chris and Adam’s improvisations Darren’s part was just boring. All he could come up with is holding the puppet up and go “lalala” with his hand, like any 5-year old kid could.

      • I bet 80% of the people who even know who Darren is don’t know he isn’t just a “white” guy. Why would Chris fans be jealous of Darren? Chris has everything Darren has and more, book deals, actual awards, better actor and all at a younger age.

        • That’s because Chris has actual talent, so they can’t say anything about him, where as Darren a is mediocre talent at best who admits that he has ridden Chris’ coattails for two years. You want to figure out the fall in Glee’s ratings, watch the how they have dropped as Darren has gotten increased focus on the show.

            Comment by srsly. – November 25, 2013 11:05 AM PDT  
          • You are really delusional and your arguments are absurd.
            You can go on and on about how Glee’s ratings are Darren’s fault, but the amount of parallel projects and media attention Darren gets just prove otherwise. Do you really think they would call him to do an Sondheim special if he had “mediocre talent at best”? Or a Broadway musical(which sold out almost every show by the way). Or present a load of award shows?
            The main public loves Darren, the media loves Darren, the critics love Darren, Broadway loves Darren.
            You keep saying how much more talent Chris is, but in reality(you know, outside your fangirl goggles) they are in pretty even ground.
            Also Chris’s movie was a complete flop with the critics so there is that too.
            I love Chris, and I think he is an AMAZING actor, not so much of a writer though, and I think Darren is an okay actor and an amazing musicial. But then again, that’s a matter of opinion, which Chris stants don’t seem to grasp the concept…

            Comment by hm – November 25, 2013 11:13 AM PDT  
          • Yeah, you’re right. It has nothing to do with a decline in the writing, or the fact that they’ve invested so much time on a whole bunch of new characters that no one cares about, or that one of the lead actors has very unfortunately passed away. It’s clearly all Darren’s fault and no one likes Blaine or Klaine. You people are just so freaking ridiculous. Do you know who also joined the cast in Season 2 and who is getting just as much focus/songs as Darren? Chord Overstreet. And yet, nobody pins the decline of the show on him – huh, funny how that works. It’s almost as though you have an irrational hatred of Darren that colors how you view his abilities and popularity.

          • Plenty of people blame Chord too. And you act like it’s only Chris stans when it’s pretty much people from every section of fandom.

          • So basically your argument is, “we think Chris is more talented than Darren so that gives us license to be assh*les on the internet.” Sorry, even if everything you were saying was correct (which, lol, I won’t bother arguing because this has become the party line for you folks, and you’re clearly convinced of it) it still doesn’t make anything you say or do acceptable. I hope you realize that the term “Chris stan” has become synonymous with hate, delusion, and pettiness.

          • In general I would agree that there are bad seeds in every fandom, but in literally almost every article that Darren is featured on, the comments’ section always devolves into “Darren isn’t as talented as Chris”, “he’s riding Chris’ coat tails”, or the ever popular “he’s responsible for the fact that Glee now sucks” and on and on ad nauseam. This isn’t an isolated instance and when people cant support their faves without tearing down others in the process, and it happens time and time again, then yes, unfortunately you get categorized as a fandom full of hateful individuals, even though that is clearly not true of everyone who is a fan of Chris.

            Comment by Lydia – November 25, 2013 11:41 AM PDT  
        • You are crazy if you think someone is a Chris stan just because they dislike Darren. Newsflash: no one in the Glee fandom likes Darren or Blaine except Darren stans – who most likely came over from Starnuts when his episode aired and no earlier.

There’s a world of difference between people who spread hate and leave abhorrent comments everywhere there go, and the person who calls that behavior abhorrent.

I’m not a Chris stan, but I think that Darren was not funny in this BTS video. No need to blame one particular fandom.

I find it very refreshing that puppets are brought into the show which will probably provide a great opportunity for parody. I’m thrilled that Adam Lambert will be back! That guy not only possesses heaps of talent but he seems to fit right in given his sense of humor. I am still watching his performance of “Marry the Night”. Can’t wait for more!

Do we really have to take it to this mean-spirited and hateful place every. single. time?? Do you even listen to yourselves anymore – he has no chemistry with his puppet – I mean, what?? If you think that you earn some kind of “best fan” points every time you bash Darren in your support of Chris, you are sorely mistaken. If Chris saw these posts he, like the rest of us sane folk, would think you are bat-sh*t crazy and need to get a life.

  • The puppets are cute and I think the episode could be fun. As someone who used to do puppeteering though all of their techniques drove me crazy. Unless the puppet is yawning or singing a really big note you move their mouth by keeping your 4 fingers steady and hinging your thumb up and down. That criticism aside I think it will be cute.

    • Thanks for the insight on puppeteering. I was looking at some videos from Avenue Q the other day, and I noticed a big difference between the ones who were real puppeteers and those who were obviously more used to acting/singing as themselves. It’s must not be easy to surrender focus to your puppet and learn to act without drawing focus to yourself.

  • Chris and Adam were so funny, great improv. So much self deprecating humor as their puppet just trashed them a bit and had no real filter lol
    Again and again, people are allowed to find an actor’s performance mediocre or boring. How is it a new concept for some that in comment section, you actually comment, meaning you say what you like, but also sometimes what you dislike, even if it’s not pleasant for some stans to read it. Either contradict the fellow or move on, calling people haters and meany doesn’t mean anything and seem rather childish. you should have proper arguments to defend your idol’s talent.
    Hate is when you gratuitously attack the performer on something that isn’t under his control, his race, his sexuality, or the freaking color of his skin, but his acting, his voice, his improv, him being entertaining, is definitely under his control, and he should deliver or face some criticism.
    Saying someone wasn’t funny is not equal hate. Saying someone is an ugly asshole with bad breathe=nonsensical hate. See the difference? it’s like calling people homophobic for not liking klaine. Please , can you stop using names when people don’t agree with you? It’s getting pretty ridiculous.

      • Oh you can be pissed, but I genuinely think you have no right to call people names because you don’t share their ideas about your star. How courteously do you want them to say that they find darren criss boring? No matter how courteous you are when you dislike something, it will always seem harsh. But from what I read here, almost nobody used bad terms to refer to Darren, at least unprovoked. So, yes, I really think some people should stop playing the victims. Darren as the lead of a show is (over) exposed, some think deservedly so, others don’t. I think that’s why the latter sometimes address the fact that they think Darren isn’t entertaining, or whatever. Either you find something constructive to say to defend him, or you post about your love, because calling people “meany” and “haters” because they express their opinion here is ridiculous and a very poor defense.

          Is that hateful enough for you, or do you still think it’s just constructive criticism?

          (Btw, I have never encountered similar hatred from Darren stans towards Chris.)

          • Typical of you to mix everything to make a point, we’re in the comment section on tvline. But anyway, never read that particular insult but all bashful posts every actor/actress stans post on their “personal” blog about a character, an actor, or a show goes on the lol tags. You’re the only stans who mostly posts their hate, insults or passive aggressive bashing comments about chris or anyone else on the normal tags where everyone can see them.
            You’re not the sweet innocent love all the people stans you pretend to be, you send anonymous hate to people on tumblr, sometimes you are rude to actors (oliver Kieran jones for example) on twitter or facebook to protect darren/blaine’s interests.
            Many stans (not just chris’s one) got tired of darren criss also because they got tired of dealing you forcing him on everyone all the time.
            So if you want to talk about hate, let’s be real here. Now, about the criticism darren face on comment sections, defend him smartly and stop playing the victim.

    • In response to yue, calling people “terrible human beings” just for expressing opinions that don’t suit you show how unfair you are since you’re allowed to say horrible things, as long as you’re a Darren/blaine stan. Really the worst I read here concerning darren is “boring” how does that make people terrible human beings? and again, people are allowed to leave positive or negative comments in these sections. They aren’t new rules that must apply only for darren/blaine, this isn’t glee. But keep playing the victim, no one is buying it.

  • This looks funny but I still say Angel had the best puppet when Angel was transformed into a puppet in the S5 episode “Smiletime”. I mean that puppet was cute and grumpy at the same time and had some funny facial expressions, and still was able to fight Spike when he laughed at him for being a puppet. My best scene was when puppet Angel was carrying an axe and was leading the group into battle against the Smiletime puppets.

  • I blame the declining ratings on several things. Poor writing coupled with too much focus on Darren, Chord and Newbies. Yeah Glee’s ratings had been dropping but it seems S4 was the Krytonite season for Glee with a very rapid decline and the most obvious thing about S4 was Lea, Cory,Chris and Naya shoved into the background with the loss of Amber,Diana and Mark in favor of the Blam and the Newbies. Same thing for S5, they started wtih too much Lima focus and that Klaine/Blaine 501 season premire was so bad they lost another 25% of their veiwers. The new cast is just terrible and Darren and Chord aren’t much better. My biggest hope is they drop New York so Lea, Chris and Naya can leave and I won’t feel obligated to keep up with Glee anymore because those 3 are the ONLY reason I even bother to DVR it and FF past that Lima garbage.

  • As a loyal ADAM Glambert I was thrilled to hear that he was joining Glee during Season 5. I am also hoping that it will be for more than a few episodes. I watched the show for the first time when ADAM debuted … so I’m new to the characters/actors on the show. ADAM tweets often about his new castmates & has nothing but praise & respect for them all & he is having fun working with so many Talented people. I am looking forward to watching Glee every week now that ADAM is one of the cast & getting to know all the talented people associated with this show. I loved their rendition of ROAR … really entertaining.

    • Adam is amazing and a real bright spot this season. But Ryan tends to get bored real fast and loses focus on and when that happens the character gets misused , not used or totally destroyed. I hope that doesn’t happen to Adam as he is one of the most talented on the show right now, but my fear is once Ryan’s shirtless wonders Darren and Chord arrive in NY all we will get is their subpar talent with most of the focus on Chords abs.

      • That would be a shame if Murphy treats Adam the way he treated others. He is absolutely amazing, so charming and a very good actor. I love the fact that you forget about Adam the big star and performer to really focus on his character and the actor. He fits in New York glee so well, you almot feel like it’s about time he’s there. I’m gushing but really he is a wonderful addition and I don’t expect much but I really hope it’s not just a rating stunt and then they’ll screw up his character, he fits too well there to casually disappear like so many.
