Lea Michele
Lea Michele was stunned when she was cast in hit TV musical "Glee" - because she had always been told she was "too ethnic" and "not pretty enough" for small screen roles.

The actress, whose mum is Italian American and dad is Spanish-Sephardic Jewish, admits she never got a callback for a television show before she moved from New York to Los Angeles, because casting directors were confused by her look.

She tells the Hollywood Reporter, "I was always told I was too ethnic or not pretty enough or too much this or not enough of that."

And Michele was stunned when "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murph...

TV executives at 20th Century Fox recently confirmed reports the "Toxic" hitmaker would follow in the footsteps of Madonna and Lady Gaga, who have both had episodes featuring nothing but their songs.

Lea Michele
"Glee" star Lea Michele looked dazzling on the red carpet at the Fox All Star Party in Santa Monica on Monday. The 23-year-old actress wore a strapless Giambattista Valli dress. What do you think?

Lea is constantly surprised by the popularity of the hit show because the series has gained her hordes of A-list fans, including Julia Roberts and Jennifer Lopez. She explained earlier this summer, "I am trying to grasp the fact that we have become as successful as we are in the United States, let alone the rest of the world."

The creator "Glee" recently talked about the series at the Televisio...

'Glee' Season Finale Recap: 'Journey' To Somewhere Over The Rainbow

6/9/2010 11:37am EDT
Glee Finale
‘Glee’ had its big finale last night, and the first season’s curtain call was full of drama, heart, and totally over-the-top musical performances. It’s hard to believe it was just a year ago that Fox aired a one-episode glimpse at the show that would become an iTunes dominating, buzz generating phenomenon. The show has gone to the White House, on a multi-city concert tour, to the top of the charts, and over the rainbow. Yet, at the end of it all, we’re right back where we started – about to embark on a year-long Journey to win a singing competition.

'Glee's' Lea Michele Strikes A Pose At The Fox Upfront After Party

Leah Michele
"Glee" star Lea Michele showed up at the 2010 Fox upfront programming presentation afterparty in New York City yesterday in a short, multicolored Erdem dress. Lea's figure looks great, but whoever did her hair and make-up made the 23-year-old actress look much older.

"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy recently hit back at reports Lea is difficult to work with, insisting he warned her she would face untrue rumors if the show became a hit. At the Time 100 Gala earlier this month, Lea rudely dismissed a photographer who asked who she was. The actress later apologized via Twitter.

'Glee' Recap: 'Bad Reputation'

5/5/2010 2:24pm EDT
On “Glee,” everyone gives a damn about their reputation. Teachers, students, and even Olivia Newton-John care about their image, and this week, everyone is trying to alter the way that they are perceived.

At the center of the episode are two mysteries that have damaged the Glee Club’s reputation. #1 – Who posted Sue Sylvester’s private ‘Let’s Get Physical’ video on Youtube? #2 – Who created ‘The Glist,’ a ranking of the glee club based on sexual promiscuity? Determined to find out some answers without losing precious rehearsal time, Mr. Schuester assigns all the Glee kids the task of rehab...

'Glee' Recap: 'Home'

4/29/2010 8:00am EDT
From ‘The Power of Madonna’ to the comforts of ‘Home,’ this week’s ‘Glee’ was a quieter rumination on growing up, believing in yourself, and 1980’s cultural icons. In an episode that was all about finding a place to belong and feeling at home, the glitz was turned down to make room for several emotional performance pieces. And a little Springsteen at the roller rink. It is ‘Glee’ after all, and home is wherever there are microphones and musicians. So let’s get started!

Now that Sue Sylvester has made Kurt and Mercedes a part of the Cheerios family, they are required to abide by her rules....

Glee - Big Hell-O
Welcome Back “GLEE”! The phenomenal phenomenon returned to TV on Tuesday night with a great big Hell-o! It was the first episode we’ve seen that was filmed after “Glee” became a bona fide hit, and the show winks at its newfound celebrity status, and reassures us that the next part of the season will be even more sensational than the first. And based on this premiere installment, we have many reasons to believe that ‘The Road to Regionals’ will indeed take the magic to the next level!

Right off the bat, we see that winning the trophy at Sectionals (and a Golden Globe for Best Comedy) doesn’...

'Glee's' Return And Season Premiere Lives Up To The Mass Hype

9/10/2009 10:17am EDT
Four months after "Glee's" one episode preview (and my countless viewings of "Don't Stop Believin'" on YouTube), the show fiiiiiiiiinally returned. Not even President Obama's address to the nation could stop the curtain from coming up (thank you Fox for your low political standards.) And any fears that the show might venture into "High School Musical: The Series" territory were quickly diminished as the kids debuted their wildly inappropriate rendition of Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It."

But let's gleecap. Passionate Spanish teacher/glee coach Will (Matthew J. Morrison) arrives at school (late,...
