Dis­ney’s Demi Lo­vato sings out for Glee role

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - TELEVISION -

SINGER Demi Lo­vato (pic­tured) is set to join Glee for a guest spot in the show’s up­com­ing sea­son, ac­cord­ing to US re­ports. The X Fac­tor judge will re­port­edly play Dani, a friend of Lea Michele’s char­ac­ter, and one that would have sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­ac­tion and sev­eral mu­si­cal num­bers to­gether with Adam Lam­bert’s in­com­ing char­ac­ter, ac­cord­ing to TV­Line.com. Re­ports sug­gest Lo­vato will ap­pear in six episodes, be­gin­ning with the sec­ond part of Glee’s planned Bea­tles’ trib­ute show. The Glee gig marks the singer’s first act­ing role since her Dis­ney Chan­nel se­ries Sonny with a Chance went off the air two years ago. In other Glee news, star Jane Lynch says Cory Mon­teith’s death has brought the cast closer to­gether. Mon­teith’s Glee co-stars, in­clud­ing girl­friend Michele, are still in mourn­ing fol­low­ing his death last month. But Lynch ad­mits the shared grief has made them a very closeknit unit. ‘‘Ev­ery­one has got­ten re­ally close. We had a great me­mo­rial, we had a very pri­vate me­mo­rial with just the cast and the crew . . . a fit­ting trib­ute to such a won­der­ful guy. I think that re­ally helped us to start work­ing on this sea­son,’’ Lynch tells US mag­a­zine Life & Style. ‘‘We miss him very much and there’s a big empty trailer that we walk by ev­ery day. It’s sad, but the wheels keep turn­ing and you just do your job,’’ she says.
