Will Harry Shum, Jr. finally be able to shed his moniker as Glee‘s “Other Asian” this season?
From a non-speaking role that was only supposed to last an episode to series regular, Shum’s Mike Chang has finally been promoted to a series regular for season 3 of Glee. Yay!
He, along with the ever-popular Darren Criss (who plays Blaine) will follow in cast-mates Heather Morris and Naya Rivera‘s footsteps to a season with hopefully better story arcs and funnier lines.
We know one person who will be thrilled about Shum’s promotion–longtime friend and collaborator, director John M. Chu.
Chu has already concocted a storyline for the smooth-moving Mike Chang. Chu tweeted to Audrey Magazine:
Hope you take note of that, Ryan Murphy!
Celebrities are people too, okay? They’re not objects that can be bought or sold on Ebay.
Unless if it’s for a good cause and if it’s just their Twitter alter ego.
Twitchange, the first ever celebrity tweet auction began yesterday, Sept. 15 as Twitter fans can bid for three things: to be followed by their favorite celebrity on Twitter, retweeted, or mentioned by them in a special tweet. All proceeds for the auction will go to benefit aHomeinHaiti.org in finishing rebuilding the Miriam Center, which houses, educates and loves on Haitian children with cerebral palsy, severe autism, and other major life challenges.
The delightful Glee star, Harry Shum Jr. is just one of the celeb Twitterers for sale. Look, free shipping too!
Other celebs that have joined Harry in the auction include SYTYCD dance sensation, @alexdwong, Harry’s Glee costar @ijennaush, and Step Up 3 director @jonmchu.
Bidding begins on the September 15, 2010 and ends on September 25, 2010.
