This one time at band camp… Gleeks be sure to catch the September 26 episode of The Simpsons, when Glee stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn) and Amber Riley (Mercedes) get Simpsonized.
“The episode’s called Elementary School Musical — a bit of a take-off on something you might be familiar with,” teases Monteith. “Basically, Lisa goes to band camp and meets the other campers. I play the role of Flynn, who likes to sing and dance.”
Executive producer Al Jean tells me the story begins when Krusty the Clown wins a Nobel Peace Prize and Homer and Bart accompany him to Europe. “But it turns out the Prize is just a trick so they can get Krusty overseas to arrest him like Roman Polanski,” says Jean. Back home, Marge feels sorry for Lisa, soswhe sends her to arts camp. Lisa and the Glee kids sing a reworded version of “Good Vibrations.”
“It was such a huge honor to go into their recording studio, where they’ve been recording for such a long time,” says Michele. “I’m still debating what’s cooler — this or the opening number we did for the Emmys!”
The Hollywood Reporter posted more of the Emmy Round Table interview. Here’s some parts with Lea:
THR: Did any of you think of anything other than acting or writing?
Michele: I’ve never wanted to be anything other than an actor. I started performing on Broadway when I was 8 years old. My first night on stage, I told my mom, “This is what I want to do.” It was “Les Mes.” I mean, I was always a very out-there kid. I would watch “Saturday Night Live” and I would pretend (to be the characters). Then I would put on “West Side Story” and act out Maria’s entire final scene at 7 years old. My mother would say, “I don’t know who you are.” But I was always very realistic: the sad thing about this business is it’s so fleeting. If I couldn’t do that, I was going to go to school and study law and become a lawyer. But I probably would have been miserable, or they would have had some very theatrical court sessions!
THR: Lea, what’s surprised you the most about the business?
Michele: Nothing feels as real as I thought it would. I’m waiting for it to feel real. Everyone on the outside is like, “Isn’t this so unbelievable?” But it will never feel to you what everyone else sees it as. That might seem sort of weird or ungrateful, but it’s not. I’m happy it’s not that way, because it’s just about what we’re doing in the moment.

You probably all know this by now, but Lea got her first Emmy nomination today and we are so happy for her! Congrats to Lea and everyone on Glee for their 19 nominations! You can check all the nominations here.
Here are a couple of Lea quotes about her nomination:
“I am beyond honored and thrilled to be nominated. The other women in this category are extraordinary actresses that I respect and admire. To be a part of Glee is a dream come true and the fact that the Academy acknowledged us in this way makes that dream even more surreal.” Source
Lea Michele was in such shock after learning of her first Emmy nomination — as lead actress in a comedy for “Glee” — that she had to go online to make sure it was actually true. “It’s one of those things where it doesn’t feel real,” she said. “The Golden Globes were so real this year. Losing to Toni Collette was the coolest thing that has happened in my life so I can’t wait for the Emmys.” Saying that Michele was ecstatic about the show’s 19 noms was an understatement, but what really touched the actress were the nominations her co-stars received. “The fact that Matthew (Morrison), Jane (Lynch) and Chris (Colfer) were all nominated — every time I say Chris’ name today I feel like I’m going to cry,” she said, adding that her song to mark the occasion would be Kool and the Gang’s “Celebrate.” While Michele didn’t have any specific plans to honor the nom, she did break her personally imposed ban on listing to “Glee” music. “I caved in and listened to ‘Glee’ on my iPod this morning,” she said, adding that she hopes writer-creator Ryan Murphy allows fans to meet Rachel’s dads in Season 2.
