“Mayors don’t get a lot of time to watch television, so I don’t know much about this season’s plot but actually it would be great to see what happens with Finn and Rachel,” Michael joked, referring to Lea Michele and Cory Monteith‘s characters.

Connie Britton has been cast as the female lead in the upcoming FX drama pilot American Horror Story!
The 44-year-old Friday Night Lights actress will play Vivien Harmon in the show, which is Glee co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk‘s latest project.
“Vivien is described as a force to be reckoned with in spite of her vulnerable demeanor,” TV Line reports.
Each season of American Horror Story will also feature an entirely new cast, the website adds.
WILL YOU WATCH Connie Britton and Ryan Murphy’s new show?
Ryan Murphy‘s resume just got a bit longer – the Glee creator has signed on for the FX pilot American Horror Story!
The 45-year-old screenwriter, director, and producer will be teaming up with Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk, whom he worked with on FX’s Nip/Tuck, for the new drama set to begin production in April.
“American Horror Story is a project that Brad and I have been discussing for a while … FX is the perfect place for this series and we look forward to a great homecoming,” Ryan said in a statement.
“And as for Glee, fans can rest assured that we haven’t taken our eyes off that ball for a second,” he added. “We’ve broken the stories for the season’s remaining episodes and we’ve got big things planned for our little glee club as it strives to make it past Regionals to the all-important Nationals competition in New York City.”
ARE YOU EXCITED for Ryan and Brad’s new show?
Glee stars Chris Colfer, Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch join creator Ryan Murphy and 20th Century Fox Television chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s current issue, on newsstands Thursday.
Ryan chatted about the business side of the hit show and dished on why fans will never hear songs from certain artists.
Here’s what he had to share with the mag:
On Eminem: “We went after ‘Lose Yourself,’ and it was jaw droppingly expensive. Around $200,000. We couldn’t
do it because the episode would’ve been so over budget.”
On Kings of Leon, who famously rejected Glee: “F— you, Kings of Leon. They’re self-centered a–holes, and they missed the big picture. They missed that a 7-year-old kid can see someone close to their age singing a Kings of Leon song, which will maybe make them want to join a glee club or pick up a musical instrument. It’s like, OK, hate on arts education. You can make fun of Glee all you want, but at its heart, what we really do is turn kids on to music.”
(FYI: KOL released this statement to THR: “This whole Glee thing is a shock to us. It’s gotten out of hand. At the time of the request, we hadn’t even see the show. It came at the end of that record cycle, and we were over promoting ['Use Somebody']. This was never meant as a slap in the face to Glee or to music education or to fans of the show. We’re not sure where the anger is coming from.”)
Ryan also shared he’s trying to write in Jennifer Lopez and Stevie Nicks for some future episodes!

The show, debuting in June, is a competition series that gives the winner a guest starring role on the third season of Glee!
“Everything was creatively driven by Ryan,” Glee Project executive producer Dante Di Loreto said (via EW). “He had the idea for this at end of the first season.”
