We were excited enough for the to-die-for new show Scream Queens, but ET’s exclusive visit with stars Lea Michele and Ariana Grande has officially put us over the top.
While chatting with the girls on set in New Orleans, Ariana described the Ryan Murphy vehicle as “a very nice balance between terrifying, scary, macabre, goth horror and girly, hilarious, glamorous, fashion. It’s the greatest combination.”
You mean everything we never knew we wanted in one TV show? Perfect!
Ariana happily showed ET the sorority house, including the awe-inducing centerpiece: a shiny pink fireplace. Sure, the rest of the mansion is home to “the world’s meanest sorority” (as Ryan described it) and the show revolves around a series of murders on a college campus, but the fireplace is shiny. And. Pink!
Despite the two vocal powerhouses being on the show, Lea revealed that there won’t be any singing this season. “Not with me! Look, we’ve got everything — we’ve got gore, we’ve got killers, we’ve got comedy… I think we’re good,” she says. Bummer!
Lea also admits that the neck brace she sports in Scream Queens isn’t the most comfortable accessory she’s ever worn. “At first I was like, ‘Oh my god, this is totally fine,’ and then seven hours later, you’re like, ‘Can someone rub my neck please?'” she says.
Hmm, Lea’s look reminds us of another girl in a sorority comedy…
Rumer Willis in House Bunny, anyone?
There is one major difference between Lea and Rumer’s characters — there was no threat of death by pearls or Greek paddles in House Bunny. In the Mean Girls-meets-Friday the 13th horror-comedy, a different Scream Queens cast member gets killed off each week. Death is the name of the game in this one.
In addition to Lea and Ariana, the cast is filled with A-listers: Emma Roberts, Jamie Lee Curtis, Nick Jonas, Abigail Breslin, Keke Palmer and Oliver Hudson. So the real question is — who will be killed off first?
Well this is certainly a change from Glee. Star Lea Michele, who played Rachel Berry on the Fox hit for six seasons, will reunite with her Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan for this fall’s horror comedy Scream Queens. The show follows a sorority, which includes Michele’s character, being stalked by a vicious killer. And, based on this exclusive first look at her character, Michele’s role is very different than the New Directions lead singer.
“Her name is Hester,” reveals Murphy. “She plays a girl with scoliosis and a neckbrace, whose nickname is Neckbrace—Emma’s character just calls her “Neckbrace.” It’s a real Eve Harrington part for Lea. This girl wants everything Chanel (Emma Roberts) has and will do anything to get it. Lea calls it her Charlize Theron Monster moment. We won’t let her put on any make up and she wears these horrible 1995 tracksuits. But there’s a great turn that happens half-way through the season with that character.”
Roberts says Michele is nailing the new role. “I can’t look at Lea in a scene because she makes me laugh,” admits Roberts. “She’s so funny. We’ll be doing a scene where I’ll be giving everyone my death glare and I’ll have to skip Lea because I’ll start cracking up. It’s been really fun to work with her because I was such a fan of Glee. Her and I have really hit it off.”
