Millions of Glee fans are jumping for joy over the season premiere, but we’re pretty sure that none of them are as fired up about it as star Josh Sussman.

 

“I’m very excited, there are a lot of new characters from the Glee Project winners, there are new songs, great performances and great scripts,” gushed Josh when Wetpaint caught up with him at Kari Feinstein’s Primetime Emmy Awards Style Lounge.

 

 As big-haired reporter with the big personality, Jacob Ben Israel, Josh has a unique role in the high school drama.

 

“My character is still working on his blog, he opens up this season interviewing the other characters and seeing what they are up to and generally just causing mischief,” explained Sussman.

 

The reality spin-off show stars are bringing in endless new opportunities for colorful story lines too.

 

The Glee Project people are fun, I’d watched their show, so I was excited to meet them, and they were excited to meet me because they’d been watching me, so the mutual excitement was huge!” said Josh, as he struggled to hold in his delirious happiness.

 

Like with every story there is love and hate.

 

“My favorite new character is Sugar played by Vanessa Lengies – she’s cool,” he revealed, blushing.

 

But on the downside…” Sue Sylvester gets even meaner!”
