Catherine Zeta-Jones as Darren Criss’ Mom?! Glee Creator Ryan Murphy's Twitter Musings, Spoilers & More
Catherine Zeta-Jones & Darren Criss
'Glee' creator spills the beans about season four.

Attention, Gleeks! Your Twitter prayers have been answered. Ryan Murphy, the Emmy-winning creator of Glee, has joined the social networking site to answer fans’ burning questions about Rachel, Blaine & co. In addition to posting a Gleeful pic this week, Murphy provided several season four scoops, as well as some dream casting for the FOX hit. Warning: Spoilers ahead.

One of the most delicious bits Murphy revealed was a casting dream. "You know who I want as Blaine's mom?" he tweeted. "Catherine Zeta-Jones!" Zeta-Jones is not stranger to singing and dancing; she won an Oscar for her role in the movie-musical Chicago and a Tony for her starring role in A Little Night Music.

Murphy and star Lea Michele have been pretty open about Rachel Berry’s post-high school life in New York, but Murphy has been more tight-lipped about what will happen to Berry’s BFF Kurt Hummel (played by Golden Globe winner Chris Colfer)…until now. He tweeted that Kurt will be working at in the fourth season, and that Vogue’s real-life editrix Anna Wintour will assist in dressing fashion maven Sarah Jessica Parker for her reccurring role as Kurt’s mentor.

When asked about what's on Glee's musical agenda, Murphy dished that fans will hear songs from the catalogue of X-Factor judge Demi Lovato, that the first group number of season four will be a cover of Adele’s “Chasing Pavements,” and that he's interested in dedicating an episode to Carole King's hit 1971 album Tapestry, which includes such iconic songs as "I Feel the Earth Move," "You've Got a Friend" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman."

Additional Murphy tidbits include that Sam (Chord Overstreet) will have a new love interest, and that an upcoming episode will be titled “The Break-Up.” With Finn and Rachel already over, could it be that fan-favorite "Klaine" is next up on the chopping block? 

Find out when Glee returns on September 13.
