Filming has begun for Ricky Martin’s guest spot on Glee. Last night, Ricky, tweeted a photo of himself with the cast of Glee, including Lea Michele, Vanessa Lengies, Chris Colfer and the rest of the gang, with the message: “First day!! :o)”
Ricky will play a musically-inclined Spanish teacher in an upcoming episode of the show, and we cant wait to see how he does. I’m sure he’ll be great – it seems like the perfectly suited role for him.
Just this week we talked about the proposed cast for the film adaptation of Les Miserables and the controversy over who scored parts and who didn’t. Lea Michele was one of the stars who auditioned but reportedly didn’t get the part, and I and a lot of readers were genuinely shocked about this. Lea has actually worked with Ricky before in a production of Les Miserables when she was younger, and she was genuinely excited to have Ricky on-set. “I’ve known Ricky since I’m 8 years old! He was in Les Mis on Broadway with me in 1996!,” Michele shared with her 1.4 million followers. “Crazy huh?!” Still cant believe that she didn’t score a part in the film adaptation of the musical, seems pretty strange to me!
