How Glee roles were cast and auditioned

In casting Glee, Murphy sought out actors who could identify with the rush of starring in theatrical roles. Instead of using traditional network casting calls, he spent three months on Broadway, where he found Matthew Morrison, who had previously starred on stage in Hairspray and The Light in the Piazza; Lea Michele, who starred in Spring Awakening; and Jenna Ushkowitz, who had been in the Broadway revival of The King and I.

Auditioning actors with no theatrical experience were required to prove they could sing and dance as well as act. Chris Colfer had no previous professional experience, but Murphy wrote in the character Kurt Hummel for him to play. Jayma Mays auditioned with the song “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” from The Rocky Horror Show, while Cory Monteith initially submitted a tape of himself acting only, and was requested to submit a second, musical tape, in which he sang “a cheesy, ’80s music-video-style version” of REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling”. Kevin McHale came from a boy-band background, having previously been part of the group Not Like Them. He explained that the diversity of the cast’s backgrounds reflects the range of different musical styles within the show itself: “It’s a mix of everything: classic rock, current stuff, R&B. Even the musical theatre stuff is switched up. You won’t always recognize it.” Jane Lynch was originally supposed to have a recurring role in the show, but became a series regular when a Damon Wayans pilot she was working on for ABC fell through. The cast is contracted for a potential three Glee films, with their contract stating that “hereby grants Fox three exclusive, irrevocable options to engage in up to, respectively, three feature length motion pictures.” Though as yet, no films have been planned.
