Joss Whedon Is ‘Really Excited’ To Direct ‘Glee’ Episode, Says Cast

Greetings Gleeks and members of the Whedonverse! We’re betting that since the news broke that Joss Whedon would be heading over to McKinley High School to direct an episode of “Glee,” you haven’t been able to contain your sci-fi/musical excitement.

Apparently, neither has the man himself. “I talked to him a bunch [at a party], he’s really excited,” noted Cory Monteith (who plays heartthrob Finn) during a “Glee” club fieldtrip to the MTV offices. “He’s a big fan of the show — and [we spoke] before it actually came out that he was going to direct. He spoke to us, the cast, for an hour at this party.”

Though neither Cory nor Lea Michele knew (or, at least, would spill) what episode Joss would be putting his magical touch on, they did say they’re anxious to get the “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Dollhouse” creator on set. “It’s good to have a talented fan directing the show,” Cory added.

Who wouldn’t want to hang out with such a fun group anyway? As you can see from the photo below, MTV News’ Jim Cantiello loved every minute of his encounter with a few of McKinley’s best voices. (Click on the image to see even more of the “Glee” visit to MTV!)
