The 100th episode of Glee airs Tuesday night, and for Matthew Morrison, his first scene on the show was opposite late actor Cory Monteith (when Will Schuester accused Finn Hudson of having weed in his locker).
With an impressive milestone achieved, Morrison can now appreciate 100 episodes worth of hard work. “Five and a half years later, here we are,” said Morrison. “It’s been quite a ride. We’ve had extreme highs and terrible losses as well, but it’s been a ride. We are such a family, and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”
Emmy winning actress Jane Lynch has experienced a huge character arc as Sue Sylvester, a woman who’s known for her manipulative tendencies. Due to various tragedies and personal defeats over the seasons, Sylvester has show a welcome vulnerability that has endeared her to the New Direction crew as well as Mr. Schuester.
“One of the things about Sue is that she’s in the process of mellowing and realizing that she doesn’t have to wage a battle to get what she wants,” said Jane Lynch. “Now that she’s the principal, she’s actually genuinely concerned with the welfare of the school.”
