Ryan Murphy posted a few deleted scenes from Glee at his youtube account. Here’s the videos with Rachel, click on “more” to watch them.
Kate Hudson and Lea Michele are becoming fast friends on the set of Glee.
The actress and mother-of-two, 33, recently began filming her guest arc on the FOX hit; Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy, 46, tweeted a photo of a beaming Hudson and Michele rehearsing at the fictional New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts July 30. “Kate had chandelier approval,” he joked.
Hudson will play Cassandra July, Rachel Berry’s energetic dance teacher — and Hudson’s casting is a dream come true for Michele. “I’m so obsessed with her,” the series’ star, 25, gushed to ET Canada July 18. “She’s one of the greatest comedic actresses right now and I just think she’s so great.”
Hudson isn’t the only A-list star appearing on Glee this season: Sarah Jessica Parker, 47, will be playing a frazzled Vogue.com journalist who interacts with Michele and Chris Colfer’s characters.
“I really think having Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson come in for our fourth season is so exciting,” Michele said at the Valspar Hands for Habitat unveiling in New York City July 20. “I think I’m more excited for this season than ever before.”
For Michele, season 4 will also present a new set of challenges for her character. “I think the biggest obstacle is going to be that she’s now going to be in a school with 1,400 other Rachel Berrys, which I don’t think she’s prepared for. I think she’s definitely going to try and put on a brave face and make everyone back home think she’s doing well, but she hasn’t had contact with Finn [Cory Monteith], and I think she’s really struggling. But I think it’s great because I feel like Rachel is always at her best when she’s got things to face.”
The fourth season of Glee premieres September 13 at 9 p.m. EST on FOX.
Glee‘s Finn, currently away at Army boot camp, may well be at risk of getting booted out of Rachel’s love life if he doesn’t march back into the picture, double time!
As previously reported, Fox’s musical comedy had added to the Season 4 mix South African-born Aussie Dean Geyer as Brody Weston, a heartthrob who will set his sights on Rachel, now a student at NYC’s NYADA.
“Rachel meets him at the school and they have a little moment and… it goes from there,” Geyer, who previously played Terra Nova security guard Mark Reynolds, tells TVLine.
Lea Michele tells me that while, in the scripts she has seen to date, things haven’t gotten hot ‘n’ heavy just yet between Rachel and school mate Brody, “He is definitely persistent!”
Getting to delve into a complicated triangle — one in which the deck is quite stacked against Rachel’s almost-husband Finn, who is AWOL at boot camp — has Michele especially excited for the season ahead, which already will feature a split narrative that will toggle ‘tween Lima and the Big Apple.
“That always works on these shows, to bring the characters together, pull them apart,” Michele notes. She then adds with a big smile and in a sing-songy voice: “Rachel is one lucky girl, lemme tell you!”
While Michele touts Geyer as an “awesome” new scene partner, the Glee newbie — who (sorry, girls) will not be using his native accent as Brody — knows that he is stepping into a mine field when it comes to one passionate fan base.
“I’ve gotten a couple of tweets from Finn fans saying, ‘I hope you don’t come between Rachel and Finn,’ so I’m kind of stressing out,” he shares with a laugh. “There is obviously a massive fan base, so…. I don’t want to peeve any fans off. But you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do.”
THR talked to the cast of Glee about season 4 and here’s what Lea said about Rachel’s storyline:

What’s ahead: Ms. Berry has her hands full with a roommate from hell and a new admirer in Brody Weston (Dean Geyer) whom she meets — wait for it! — in the co-ed bathroom of her dorm, Michele says. “He’s definitely interested in her but I think that she is very hesitant because she doesn’t really know where things stand with Finn; she doesn’t want to make any moves before she knows where they stand and Brody’s not going to give up,” the actress tells THR of her new mentor — who has alreadyperformed on Broadway. “He’s like a cross between Jesse St. James and Finn.” Elsewhere, Rachel’s new roommate may not immediately be seen but she’ll most definitely be heard. “You see Rachel for the first time in her bed, covering her ears from the sex noises that her roommate is making and you never see the roommate — as of now — you can just hear her,” Michele says with a smile. “It’s going to be hilarious.”
