While we keep tabs on the Dallas and Richardson designers cutting and sewing their way to the middle on Project Runway, which has been rendered a hot mess by Lifetime, keep in mind: Three locals populate the cast of Glee, by far the best of the new fall shows and, save for Curb Your Enthusiasm, the only thing on our to-DVR list we actually go back and watch (again and again and again).
As we mentioned, oh, back in August, Kevin McHale, who plays Artie Abrams (the kid in the wheelchair), is a Plano product; and MILF-man and baby-daddy Puck is played by Lake Highlands' Mark Salling. And, of course, there's Justin F. Kimball High School Class of 1969's Most Likely to Succeed, Stephen Tobolowsky, who disappeared after the pilot only to return as the director of the school's production of Cabaret, in which he'd like the starring role (creepy). So after the jump you'll find last night's show -- this one featuring Kristin Chenoweth doing a mean Carrie Underwood.
By the way, Stephen, you've got a class reunion in three weeks. Mark it down.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
