The stars have aligned and three awesome entities have been brought together for something… even more awesome. Joss Whedon + Neil Patrick Harris + Glee= Triple-Awesome. It’s simple math, folks!
Neil Patrick Harris is set to guest star in this week’s episode of Glee. If that weren’t exciting enough, given how funny and musically talented he is, “Dream On” is also the episode directed by Joss Whedon. Whedon is known for TV works of brilliance, including Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly. His awesomeness joined forces with that of Neil Patrick Harris’ once before when Harris starred in Joss’ webseries Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog. Now the two are teamed up again for Glee.
If there’s ever been an episode of Glee to look forward to for Whedonites, it’s this one! Below are some video interviews featuring Harris, Whedon and some of the cast of Glee as well as some behind the scenes footage. Whedon’s interview is great. It’s evident that he’s a Gleek. He loves the show and I’m sure I’m not alone in being excited to see what he does with the episode he directed.
Consider yourselves spoiler-warned as Whedon, Harris and the cast all talk specifics about the episode, including the songs Harris will sing! Also, Joss reveals that he decided to introduce something new to the show: Singing! I know. Crazy.
