First Look At Sarah Jessica Parker On Glee – Just Another Example Of The Show’s Marketing Genius

Chris Colfer, Sarah Jessica Parker on Glee

We’re starting to be convinced that Ryan Murphy and the rest of the folks behind Glee are mad marketing geniuses. Whether or not the very experimental fourth season actually succeeds when it premieres — with its brand-new format (the show-within-the-show), brand-new time slot (Thursdays at 9) and brand-new settings (NYC!) — remains to be seen. But they’ve certainly managed to build our excitement for the show’s return on September 13. The latest spark to our enthusiastic flame is the above photo, which Murphy tweeted, showing guest-star Sarah Jessica Parker as Vogue.com editor Isabelle Klempt, who will be Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) boss. As if we weren’t already thrilled to see Carrie Bradshaw get another shot at Vogue success (remember her column for the mag? And what happened after her wedding gown shoot?), it’s super cool to know that Ms. Anna Wintour herself is behind SJP’s costumes for the role. Can’t have a fake Vogue editor wearing just anything, can we?

All this is coming on the heels of Lea Michele’s provocative Nylon cover, a fun set visit story from Vulture, Murphy’s other tweets of Darren Criss dressed as Robin and Kate Hudson as Rachel’s dance teacher, and all those photos of Lea and Cory Monteith traipsing around New York. All we need are some actual clips and you can consider us whipped into a frenzy.
