From Hell On Wheels creators Joe and Tony Gayton, the project follows a highly intelligent recent college graduate (Coffey) who, after moving back home, lands a position with a Korean crime organization.

  • I thought Dianna was in too? Or was she only invited but hasn’t RSVP’d yet? (I’m pretty sure i read something like that on this week’s Ask Ausiello)

    • Dianna was invited and reportedly wants to do it. It’s just a matter of if the dates work out.

      • I hope the dates work out and Dianna can do it. It would be so nice to see the original group back together and I would tune in for that episode. I hope it’s the original group singing the remixes.

  • How about he invites back Joe, who mysteriously disappeared and none of his friends seemed to notice, or Lauren Zizes? Make it really special?

    • Who?

      • Oh, the guy who played Matt. :) Answered my own Q.

  • I love Kristin Chenoweth but how does April Rhodes not suck all the oxygen out of the scenes she’s in? That pint sized diva can’t help herself, she’s an attention magnet. Might not’ve been the greatest thing when you’re trying to fit in all the regulars to bring in someone who’d need more than a cameo to explain why the heck she’s even there. Now, if you want April to meet Rachel’s mom, I’m in. ;)

  • Great to see Kristin Chenoweth back on Glee! Now if we can only get Idina Menzel and Kate Hudson back I’d be even more happy!

  • Mark, Harry, Amber, Diana. Heather, Kristin are IN.. please, include some Cory Monteith’s unaired footage or include his voice in the remix tributes. That should be a great 100th episode

    Comment by Fernanda – December 5, 2013 02:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Can we finally get Kristin and Idina in the same scene, please???

    Comment by Sam – December 6, 2013 03:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • now they just need to get Dijon Talton (aka Matt Rutherford/”Shaft”) to get all (surviving) Season 1 original New Directions members. (sadly, the #Glee writers seem to have forgotten about him!!)
