According to The Hollywood Reporter, GLEE's Dianna Agron and Grant Gustin are heading to Oxygen Media's THE GLEE PROJECT to serve as mentors. The actors will be the final two mentors of this season's competition.
Gustin, who has a recurring role on GLEE as Dalton Academy Warbler Sebastian, is set to appear on the July 17 episode which will be themed "Theatricality." Agron, who portrays Quinn on the FOX drama, will follow with an appearance on the August 7 episode, themed "Actability."
The actors join fellow GLEE Cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera, Amber Riley, Darren Criss, Chris Colfer and Jane Lynch, who will all appear as mentors on the singing competition.
Season two of the critically acclaimed "The Glee Project" returned with additional themes, all new music and more episodes. During the eleven week run of the series, "The Glee Project" contenders will be narrowed down through intensive rounds of workshops, singing, dancing and acting-based assignments as the creative forces of "Glee" carefully assess who has what it takes to be one of the next new faces of the award-winning show. Murphy will once again join casting director Robert Ulrich and choreographer and "Glee" co-producer Zach Woodlee in the final deliberations of each installment of the series. Vocal coach Nikki Anders, who mentored the contenders on-air in season one, joins the judging panel in season two each week as a permanent member. Additionally, continuing with the format of season one, "Glee" series regulars will appear on "The Glee Project" as guest mentors, including Lea Michele ("Rachel Berry") in the show’s premiere episode.
"The Glee Project" is produced by Ryan Murphy Television and Embassy Row with Ryan Murphy, Dante di Loreto, Michael Davies and Shauna Minoprio serving as executive producers.
THE GLEE PROJECT airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on Oxygen.
