In the portrait in the first episode, one of the guys was black. Remarriage?

# 2

Does anyone remember how in the pilot they showed a picture of Rachel’s dads…and one of them was black? Way to be consistent, Glee.

the picture on the first episode was of two models not actors, because they didn’t know it would be picked for more than 13 episodes.
i think this casting was great

Ugh, Lea Michelle is just too much.

# 5

Why couldn’t they have picked out actors that at least resembled her dads pictures in the pilot? It’s like they don’t care about those small details.

# 6

oh god you can’t even spell her name

# 7

Brian Stokes Mitchell is actually black (though he isn’t anywhere as dark-skinned as the original locker picture of her family.)

# 8

I feel like Glee is going a little overboard with all these gay characters. Like, suspiciously overboard.
Like, oh no. we’re not homophobic. no. no. no. look at all these gay characters we have. there’s no way. no. no. no. no way. no. no. no. no. no. no. no. no. no.

@dorit: You’re totally right. Oops, that’s embarrassing for me.

Brian stokes Mitchell was Trevor (Hilary’s fiance) in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

Can’t wait to see the scenes with Rachel and her Dads.


Except that we’ve known she’s 2 gay dads since the first episode of the entire seasons. It’s not like Ryan was suddenly like “Quick we need more gay characters”….

Finally. I’m so excited.

They should really remember that in an episode they showed Rachel talking about her dad’s and you see her with them in pictures. And she has a black and a white dad.. It’s probably not important but you think you would stick with that…?? :S

@Samantha: Again, Brian Stokes MItchell is black. See above comments. That being said, Coalhouse Walker is Little GIrl’s dad?! mind blown hahah
