If you were thrilled with the "Thriller" news from earlier today, this bit of "Glee" scoop should have you dancing with delight. E! Online reports that Harry Shum Jr., or as he's known to Gleeks, Mike "The Other Asian" Chang, is being bumped up from guest star to series regular on the show as of next season.
Harry, who is best known for his crazy-good dance skills (he's also a member of the dance group The LXD, which joined the "Glee" cast on their tour earlier this year), has scored some major numbers on the show this season, including "Dream A Little Dream" and "Sing" with Jenna Ushkowitz (who plays his love interest Tina Cohen-Chang), as well as this week's rendition of "Make 'Em Laugh" from "Singin' in the Rain" with Matthew Morrison.
Of course, he isn't the first cast member to make the transition from bit player to series regular. Heather Morris (Brittany) and Naya Rivera (Santana) became full-time cast members, and who can imagine imagine the show without them? Harry has become an integral part of the series, not to mention one of the most fun actors to watch work his magic. On behalf of Gleeks everywhere, we're happy to have you for good, Harry!
Are you excited that Harry will be on "Glee" full-time?
