Lea Michele News Archive
On Thursday, Carnegie Hall announced that Skylar Astin will be returning to his musical theatre roots as he's slated to star as Tony in West Side Story at the Knockdown Center in Queens, NY.
The show is schedule to run next year on March 4-6. AH-Mazing!
The 28-year-old may be best known for as the adorable Treblemaker in the Pitch Perfect franchise, but initially he made his Broadway debut back in 2006 as a part of the original cast of Spring Awakening — alongside fellow A-lister Lea Michele!
And it seems the Ground Floor actor is just as excited as we are for his upcoming role as he took to Twitter and shared:

The New York native will be joined in the classic show by the Great White Way veteran, Bianca Marroquín as Anita and 18-year-old newcomer, Morgan Hernandez as Skylar's romantic lead Maria. Talk about being a Broadway baby!
Other roles are still to be announced. We'll certainly be looking forward to this production.

Scream Queens' Women Kicked Some Misogynist Ass Last Night & Proved Why It's All About Female Empowerment! WATCH!
This is FABULOUS!
Scream Queens is becoming more and more popular and it might have to do with how kick-ass the women are on it!
Sure, some of the Chanels can be stuck up at times, but last night's episode proved why at the end of the day, the horror comedy is really about female empowerment!
At the center of the show, Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Billie Lourde, and Abigail Breslin all play girls that go by the name Chanel — each one has a different number at the end of their name to tell them apart — except for Roberts who is of course the head Chanel!
In a scene from last night, *SPOILERS*
Scream Queens Killed Off A MAJOR STAR — Read Our SPOILER Recap To Find Out Who Didn't Make It Out Alive!
Talk about a treat!
The series stars Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin, the head of Kappa Kappa Tau, a very stuck up, elitist, and previously racist sorority.
Ariana Grande, Billie Lourd, and Abigail Breslin also star as Roberts' "minions" Chanel #2, Chanel #3, and Chanel #5 — obvi, because who needs names when you're that stuck up?
Chanel's world comes crashing down though when Dean Cathy Munsch, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, orders their house to open their doors to everyone and accept any girl as a pledge. But this is the least of their worries as there's a campus killer dressed as a devil running around!
The first episode was filled with plenty of laughs, scares, some gore and murder! Read the SPOILER-filled recap (below) to find out which MAJOR star didn't make it out alive!
Lea Michele Proves She's A Real Scream Queen — When Ellen Degeneres Scares The Living Sh*t Out Of Her!!
Be careful what you wish for, Lea Michele!
The actress dished on everything from shooting in New Orleans to being buried underground from the neck-down and getting attacked by spiders!
But the best part of the interview was when Michele said how her ultimate dream was to get co-star Jamie Lee Curtis to watch Halloween with her — because that's when a man dressed as Michael Myers popped out and scared her!
Watch the Scream Queen scream at the top of her lungs in the video (below)!
Anne Hathaway Is The Favorite To Play Mary Poppins In The Disney Remake! Find Out Which Other Leading Ladies Have Good Odds!
Mere speculation is fun, but some fans are so serious they're actually placing bets on which actress will snag the role!
On Tuesday, Ireland-based online betting firm BoyleSports announced that Anne Hathaway is the current favorite to take over Julie Andrews's famous role, with 6/4 odds! Not bad!
Other stars who bettors think would be in the running feature many A-list actresses with vocal talent, like Emily Blunt (5/2), Amy Adams (7/2), Anna Kendrick (10/1), and Kristen Bell (11/2) — who already played the nanny in a FunnyOrDie sketch!
We'd place our bets on any of these leading ladies, but we would LOVE it if Hathaway took over the role — we bet her Princess Diaries co-star Julie Andrews would totally give her blessing!
Which actress are YOU betting on?
We're not sure how this happened, but we're totally supporting it!
Even though the horror/drama premieres in just ten days, Patrick Schwarzenegger was just announced as a new cast member on Saturday!
Most of the season has had to have been filmed by now, so we're not too sure what role he'll be playing in the story line, but we do know the 21-year-old will be playing Glen Powell's younger brother Thad.
The rest of the all-star cast is made up of Emma Roberts, Lea Michele, Abigail Breslin, Ariana Grande, Nick Jonas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Keke Palmer, Skyler Samuels, Diego Boneta, Lucien Laviscount, Oliver Hudson, Niecy Nash, Nasim Pedrad, and Billie Lourd, so we can't wait to watch the murders get started!
Will U be tuning in for the two-hour series premiere of Scream Queens on Tuesday, September 22 on FOX??

That looks… fun.
Because as it turns out, they're totally besties now as well!
And Emma and Lea are so close that they're comfortable doing whatever kind of pilates this is in front of one another! LOLz!!!
Lea shared the pic to Twitter on Thursday, gushing:
