Glee Project Winner Damian McGinty Talks Sinatra, Jane Lynch, and His Almost Elimination

Season 3 of Glee will have a little international flavor when Irish-born Damian McGinty joins the cast for a seven-episode arc that was the grand prize for his win on Season 1 of Oxygen’s reality series The Glee Project. (McGinty shared top honors with fellow finalist Samuel Larsen.) TVLine caught up with McGinty the morning after his win, and while he says it’s still a mystery what role Glee executive producer Ryan Murphy is cooking up for him, that didn’t stop him from speculating some scenarios that would put him opposite popular cast members …READ MORE

The Glee Project Comes Down to the Final Four: Who Should Win? Vote Now!

Season 1 of The Glee Project, Oxygen’s frothy summer treat to find the next breakout cast member of Fox’s megahit Glee, comes to a conclusion Sunday night (9/8 c).

The Glee Project Recap: Slush to Excellence

The Glee Project Recap: Lip Bomb

If you don’t like the water, you probably shouldn’t be a dolphin trainer. If you hate airplane travel, you probably shouldn’t be a flight attendant. And if you can’t handle the idea of a chaste stage kiss in the midst of shooting a romantic scene, you probably shouldn’t be an actor. READ MORE
