"Glee" stars and Broadway performers Darren Criss (How to Succeed…) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Spring Awakening) will cover Carly Rae Jepsen's summer hit "Call Me Maybe" on the Season Four premiere of the Fox hit series, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
In the upcoming premiere episode of "Glee," entitled "The New Rachel," Rachel Berry (Spring Awakening's Lea Michele) will be thrown straight into classes at the fictional New York Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she will encounter a challenging NYADA professor played by recurring guest star Kate Hudson.
The first episode of the season will also feature covers of Adele's "Chasing Pavements," the first group number of the season, and Billy Joel's "New York State of Mind," performed by Michele and newcomer Melissa Benoist ("Homeland," "The Good Wife").
Aside from Hudson and Benoist, the fourth season will also welcome "Glee Project" winner Blake Jenner, Sarah Jessica Parker (Once Upon a Mattress), Becca Tobin (Rock of Ages), Dean Geyer and Jacob Artist.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
